The Launch of The Convent in Farnborough last weekend was a resounding success with over 100 interested guests attending over the Saturday and Sunday.

All four apartments released for sale at launch were reserved during the launch weekend and we anticipate the next release selling quickly so contact Mackenzie Smith in Farnborough on 01252 375999 or theconvent@mackenziesmith.co.uk to make sure you are kept up to date on the latest news of the next release.

Visitors were interested to see what has become of this historic iconic building, founded in 1889 by nuns of the Congregation of Christian Education as a convent, and were delighted by what they saw.

The rich Victorian architecture has been restored whilst retained features and stunning proportions provide a unique backdrop to the 14 modern apartments designed within. Each apartment is individually designed to maximise the unique space available and make the most of existing features.

With scale and specification akin to a high end London City apartment but with the appeal of character features, these apartments offer living spaces not previously seen locally, offering two parking spaces per apartment, high ceilings and large double glazed sash windows.

Chic open plan kitchens, unique to each apartment, encapsulate the desirable with the finest attention to detail; soft close cupboards, granite or quartz worktops, soft lighting and integrated appliances, whilst refined Villeroy & Boch ceramics grace the bathrooms and en-suites complemented by luxurious tiling and under floor heating.

In a perfect fusion of old and new the apartments are pre-wired for the internet and media services and benefit from colour screen entry phones, there is even the option to have use of an electric car charging point (where available, please ask for further details).

The apartment sparked the imaginations of prospective purchasers with many leaving disappointed and eagerly awaiting the next release after the four available were promptly reserved.

Keen investors were among the purchasers, who have recognised the unique appeal of the development and identified its proximity to commuting links; Junction 4 of the M3 is nearby, 5 minutes from TAG private airport and approx 34 minutes to London from Farnborough mainline station, to appeal to executive and corporate tenants.

The sophisticated two and three bedroom apartments boast a desirable specification and enviable size, unmatched and incomparable to other apartments on offer in a wide radius.

These unique apartments situated in this historic building in Farnborough must be seen to be fully appreciated; the grandeur of the building and the majestic manicured entrance, the comfort and reassurance of a new apartment with all new fittings and appliances, integrated technology, and the convenience of the location all equate to an excellent and rare opportunity of uncompromising quality.
