30 The Old Convent
Semi-detatched four bedroom house that is tucked away in the corner of a converted convent and benefits from 11 acres of communal grounds including a heated outdoor pool, tennis courts and children’s play area. The communal Chapel houses a snooker room, table tennis and badminton court.
The Convent is historically interesting having been designed and built by the famous gothic revival architect George Edmund Street in the mid 1800’s. His most famous work is the Royal Court of Justice in London and William Morris, a key member of the Arts and Crafts movement studied under Street.
Surprisingly, it is only a few minutes walk from the town centre and nearby train station with its direct trains to London (55 minutes).
