An exceptional architect designed house set in private and generous grounds with a home office on the edge of town.

Located on the edge of Faringdon and enjoying a good degree of privacy a remarkable detached house providing nearly 3,400 square feet of bright and generous accommodation over two floors with a carport immediately adjacent to the front door and a double garage with home office over. One is immediately impressed by the feeling of light and open space on the ground floor. The entrance hall leads to a dining area just off the kitchen and onto a spacious living area that flows beautifully between one another with large apertures that seamlessly link them. The wealth of natural light is enhanced by dual aspects in each of these rooms with sun terraces accessible and the gardens beyond. There are four extremely generous bedrooms on the first floor, the largest of which has an en suite shower room, a walk-in wardrobe and a Juliet balcony. There is also a main shower room.

The house sits on a generous plot with gardens accessed by a shared driveway. The double carport houses a wine cellar and there is a separate double garage with a shower room and a sizeable home office above. At the rear and just off the kitchen is a private and well stocked courtyard garden and to the front raised terraces lead to a mature garden laid mainly to lawn with trees and varied herbaceous borders interspersed.

Please note there is lapsed outline planning permission on the southern edge of the property for twenty three units which will shortly be resubmitted with an application for full planning permission. Planning reference to be confirmed.

Set at the foot of the Wessex downs, with the Thames to the south, Faringdon is a vibrant and very well established market town to the west of Oxford. The town provides a wide range of amenities with three supermarkets including a Waitrose, various public houses, cafes and restaurants, a doctors' and dentists' surgeries and leisure centre. The A420 provides easy access to the M4 and the A34, and Swindon or Didcot Parkway provide access to London within an hour. Faringdon is not only thriving but is also steeped in history with Faringdon House formerly being home to the Berners who also built Faringdon Folly Tower within a charming four acre, circular woodland dating back more than 200 years. National Trust Badbury Clumps is also in striking distance with its famous bluebell woods, and Buscot and Lechlade three miles away the closest points where the River Thames passes by. There is a wealth of schools in the area with Annebelle's for the pre-schoolers (which also runs daytime clubs through the holidays) Faringdon Junior School and Faringdon Community College. Further afield Pinewood, St Hugh's, Cokethorpe and the Abingdon Schools are all in easy reach.
