3 bed Semi-Detached SOLD STC
Asking Price £350,000
A rare opportunity to purchase a stunning and spacious home within a converted chapel. Benefitting from lofty, stripped back style akin to that of a big city apartment, yet mixed with English character of exposed beams and a quintessential view of the village that surrounds, this property presents a brilliant blend of outstanding qualities. The house is situated at the heart of Farmborough, a beautiful country village on the edge of the Mendip Area of Natural Beauty, yet under half an hour drive from both Bristol and Bath. The house is just a short walk from the well-regarded local school and several of the village amenities such as a pub and community shop. With three double bedrooms and over 1700 square foot of space, this would make a fantastic family home. With the large garage and parking this is a practical home as well on with flair. It's impressive style could also make this an opportunity for an investment buyer, with long and especially short term rental demand very strong due in part to the appeal of the area to visitors and tourists. Viewing this property is strongly advised. Contact Boardwalk Property Co on 01179898222 to arrange your viewing.

This home is situated at the heart of Farmborough, just around the corner from the centre of the village. The village is home to a pub, community shop, a well-regarded primary school and Grade II listed 15th century church. Farmborough gains its popularity from being within a short drive to the historic cities of Bath and Wells and the bustling Bristol, which is ideal for commuters and for those who visit regularly for events, eateries and to socialise. However, this is an area amongst some fantastic countryside, offering a definite retreat from city life. The house offers fantastic village and country views and within minutes of the house there are beautiful country walks. Just a short drive away are also the Mendips and Chew Valley, which offer fantastic country walks and an exciting landscape bringing people from much further afield. Farmborough and the surrounding area also have much on the doorstep with the local area home to several very well regarded country pubs, farm shops and restaurants. 'The Pig near Bath' is one such venue, just five minutes away by car, whilst in Farrington Gurney there is also the Farrington Farm Park and Shop.

Our Sellers Say…
'We really enjoy living in Farmborough Village with its close proximity to Bath, Bristol and the Mendips; you can enjoy the best that country life has to offer whilst being close to the city. The village has a fantastic Pre-School and Primary School, a community shop selling locally a great range of products with a focus on sourcing locally made/sourced produce, along with a pub, village hall and tennis court and playground.
Throughout the year, the community gets together to enjoy events such as the summer BBQ on the recreation ground, apple pressing event in the grounds of the Community Shop, the fireworks display and Christmas tree festival in the church.
We bought the house as we loved its clever pairing of modern with traditional, its open living area and large room sizes. It was like moving into a new home; the previous owner used the property as a second home so the oven and dishwasher had hardly been used! Along with its spacious rooms, the garage is the full length of the property so there is lots of space for storage or it could be used as a games or cinema room. The garden is low maintenance and a real sun trap in the warmer months, perfect for busy lifestyles. We hope the new owners enjoy life in the Old Chapel as much as we have.'
According to the energy performance certificate, the property is rated as a 'D' for energy efficiency and environmental impact. The EPC suggests the only measures for improvement are solar power.
