Sir William Perkins School was founded in 1725 by the wealthy Chertsey Merchant to educate 25 boys and 25 girls and Curfew House is the original school building which commemorates the fact in the inscription above the first floor windows reading ‘1725 Founded by Sir William Perkins for fifty children clothed and taught go and do likewise’.
Located in the heart of Chertsey Town Centre’s conservation area this elegant Georgian Town House now offers spacious accommodation and retains a wealth of character and original features too numerous to mention. Ideal for family living with seven double bedrooms, four bathrooms and three large reception rooms together with a kitchen breakfast room. Outside is a large garage and workshop in addition to storage sheds and a brick built utility room with services.
To the rear the conservatory opens onto a secluded paved terrace with steps down to the large walled lawned garden with kitchen gardens and vehicular rear access from Colonels Lane. All local amenities, schools, shops and Railway Station are within walking distance and the M25 is approximately five minutes drive away.
James Ramsey Estate Agents are proud to be offering Curfew House to the market and would recommend it to anybody seeking a unique and character family house.
