Situated in the heart of Uffington, Brook Cottage provides a truly deceptive village home, offering light and spacious accommodation, complemented by a generously sized and pretty garden with a stream running through it.

Believed to have been constructed c 70 years ago, the cottage has been sensitively designed to include many period features, and has more recently benefited from a two storey extension providing an additional reception room and utility, and creating a large master bedroom with en suite facilities.

The ground floor comprises a spacious and welcoming entrance hall with stairs rising to the first floor and a cloakroom. The sitting room has exposed beams and a beautiful fireplace and lies open plan to the new dining/garden room with French doors on to the rear garden. A family kitchen/breakfast room includes a larder cupboard and boiler cupboard, there is a rear entrance porch and a study/snug. Completing the ground floor is a utility and attached single garage with power and light connected.

On the first floor are three generous double bedrooms, all with fitted wardrobes, a generous family bathroom and the master bedroom enjoys an equally spacious and modern en suite bathroom.

Outside, the property has delightful gardens, generously sized and laid to lawn with well stocked flower borders, a garden shed, greenhouse and oil tank. The garden enjoys the afternoon and evening sun and includes a pretty stream. There is driveway parking for two vehicles leading to the garage.

AMENITIES The village of Uffington lies on the edge of the Vale of the White Horse, just north of the Berkshire Downs. Overlooking the village is the famous White Horse, a marvellous chalk figure which was cut into the hillside 3,000 years ago. The village has a fine church, known as the Cathedral of the Vale, and an excellent museum, shop and Post Office, pre-school, primary school, traditional public house, community hall and sports ground as well as a host of community clubs and organisations. Further information on village activities can be found on the village website www.uffington.net

More comprehensive facilities are available at the nearby towns of Wantage (c. 7 miles); Faringdon (7.5 miles); Didcot to the east (c.15.4 miles), which has a mainline train service to London Paddington (c. 45 minutes); Abingdon (c.15.2 miles); Oxford (M40) (c. 20 miles); and Swindon (M4) (c. 12.4 miles).

Uffington has literary connections too. John Betjeman, Poet Laureate, lived in the village and Thomas Hughes, author of Tom Brown's Schooldays, was born at Uffington Vicarage. Several of Hughes' books are based on local people and places; the museum is actually housed in the school featured in his most famous work.
