An exquisite Property hidden away in the heart of the Market Town of Faringdon, formerly the Faringdon Grammar School for Girls. This Grade II listed building has been transformed to offer elegance and period charm. Being one of only four apartments in this building, it really must be viewed to be fully appreciated.

Entering the Property through the Hallway, the eye-catching vast Drawing Room - which used to be the school's library - boasts a range of period features including high ceilings, original full-length windows with French doors opening to the communal courtyard, exposed floorboards, cornicing and an Ornate Marble Open Fireplace.

An archway leads through to a generous sized Kitchen/Breakfast Room, which is fitted with an extensive range of wall and floor mounted units, dishwasher, ample space and plumbing for appliances, and a door to the courtyard. The large sash windows still have their original wooden shutters.

The Master Bedroom benefits from multiple storage cupboards and is flooded with light from two large sash windows. There is a further Double Bedroom off the Drawing Room. Completing the Ground Floor is the Family Bathroom with sophisticated tiles and a white suite comprising a wash hand basin, WC, bath and heated towel rail. A staircase with a large storage cupboard rises to a further Double Bedroom – a light and airy attic room with a built-in wardrobe, storage, and Velux windows overlooking the nearby park and rooftops beyond.

Outside, the Courtyard provides a peaceful seating area and the Property further benefits from two allocated off-road parking spaces as well as shared visitors parking. A wonderful bonus is the shared annexe at the front of the building, owned by all the residents, and currently used as extra Storage Space and a Gym.

Throughout the Property, an Eco-Friendly Smart Heating System is installed, which allows the user complete control over each room's temperature via a fixed control unit or any smartphone. Temperatures can be changed ad-hoc or according to schedules for each single room, which can save energy and money.

There are also some smart light fittings that can be regulated via switches, smartphone and motion detectors. Lights can be dimmed, and some can be set to various mood colour lighting schemes.

With its high ceilings and large windows throughout, this unique property allows a great sense of space and light.

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 town now boasts three large supermarkets.

Faringdon is also ideally positioned for the A420, leading to the A34, M40 and M4 and mainline railway services from Swindon, Oxford, Oxford Parkway and Didcot Parkway. There is a frequent bus service through the town from Swindon to Oxford and back, linking to rail services and airports.

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.
