  • Bedrooms: 4
A lovely four bedroom detached family home, offering spacious and flexible accommodation and situated in a mature and popular residential location, on a larger than average plot. This property is conveniently situated for access to the very successful Faringdon Community College and to the Infant and Junior Schools and an easy walk to the town centre. A regular bus service between Oxford and Swindon is also available within a few minutes' walk of the property.

The accommodation is extremely well presented and comprises a spacious entrance hall with cloakroom and a generously sized sitting room with a fireplace fitted with a gas fire. There is a separate dining room and a superb family kitchen/breakfast room which is extensively fitted with a range of floor and wall mounted units and a central island unit. The kitchen includes a cooking range with extractor over. Off the kitchen is a family room/snug which could also be used as a study. Located close to the back door is a utility room.

On the first floor, the master bedroom is fitted with an extensive range of fitted wardrobes and matching furniture in addition to eaves storage cupboards. This room has a en suite bathroom. There are three further double bedrooms, two of which have fitted wardrobes, and a family bathroom fitted with a modern white suite.

Outside, the property is approached over a block-paved driveway providing off road parking, with a spacious lawned garden and mature planting affording the property a high degree of privacy. The rear garden is much larger than average and incorporates a sunny paved patio with well stocked flower and shrub borders, and lawn. Beyond the fence is a substantial kitchen garden with a further lawn, a variety of fruiting trees and shrubs including apple, pear, cherry, raspberry and crab apple and a greenhouse. There is a substantial timber shed with double doors (approx. 16' x 16') built with insulation and power and light connected.

The property has a very large garage built in 2004 of cavity construction which could provide potential for an annexe subject to the necessary alterations and planning consents. This has power and light connected and is insulated in floor, walls and roof. The garage roof has solar panels fitted which earns c £850.00 per annum.

N.B. The vendor has planning permission passed in October 2016 for a detached three bedroom house (c 1718 sq ft) to be built in the kitchen garden area. This would necessitate the removal of the existing garage to allow for vehicular access. This includes planning permission for a detached double garage within the front garden. Planning reference P16/VO522/FUL

Agent's Note: The adjacent property has planning permission for an additional dwelling in their rear garden.

AMENITIES The historic market town of Faringdon, dating back at least to the 12th century, has a thriving community and amenities such as the Leisure Centre, Library, Faringdon Community College, Junior and Infant schools as well as The Old Station Nursery, doctors' and dentists' surgeries and a Family Centre. Buses travel from the town to private schools at Abingdon.

The Tower on Folly Hill was built by Lord Berners in 1935 and affords panoramic views across four counties. For over 20 years, the town has been twinned with Le Mêle-sur-Sarthe in France and in 2004, Faringdon became the first Fairtrade town in the South East of England. The town is served by the Stagecoach 66 bus which runs a half-hourly service through much of the day from Swindon to Oxford and back. The town is also ideally positioned for the A420, leading to the A34, M40 and M4 and mainline railway services from Swindon, Oxford and Didcot Parkway.
