The property has the advantage of three/four reception rooms, with a particularly impressive reception hall/study area, with an adjoining downstairs cloakroom. To the left of the hallway, is the formal dining room, which would make the ideal space for a TV snug/playroom. The main living room/breakfast room is central to the house, which leads to the third reception room, which provides views of the established rear gardens.

The fitted kitchen offers a good selection of wall and base units, with the advantage of an original built-in pantry cupboard. The kitchen could easily be opened up to the breakfast room to provide a generous family kitchen with bi-folding doors to the delightful gardens, subject to the usual consents.

To the first floor, the good-size galleried landing space leads to the dual-aspect master bedroom, with two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Externally, both the front and rear gardens offer a good level of seclusion, with the rear gardens being mainly laid to lawn with a raised patio area and the front gardens being partly laid to lawn, with flower and shrub borders and hardstanding parking for two vehicles leading to the single attached garage.

Of particular note, are the front and rear single-storey extensions, which subject to consent and inspection, may offer the opportunity to add first floor accommodation to enhance the existing bedroom spaces or add another bedroom entirely.

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.
