Bedrooms: 2
Brimming with character, this idyllic period town cottage has two/three bedrooms, two reception rooms and a lovely garden which is a summer suntrap. The property is offered with no onward chain.

Situated in a conservation area within the town centre, this exceptional period home dating back to the Civil War boasts flagstone floors, exposed wooden floors with some original timbers, and a beautiful Inglenook fireplace in the sitting room.

The cottage benefits from having an entrance hallway which leads to two of the reception rooms. The sitting room is at the front of the property and has original flagstone flooring with an inglenook fireplace that has an inset wood burner. Situated in the heart of the house, the dining room has wooden flooring and stairs leading to the first floor. The handmade, bespoke kitchen provides a lovely view across the garden and has a great range of units with space for various appliances.

Beneath the two principal reception rooms are two large cellar rooms, that have the potential to be developed to create further accommodation.

On the first floor is a wonderful master bedroom with concealed built-in wardrobe and concealed staircase rising to an additional room that could either be used as a third bedroom or as an office/studio room. The second bedroom is located at the back of the cottage with views over the pretty garden and lies adjacent to the family bathroom, which has a modern white suite.

Externally, to the rear is a lovely garden, which is a cottage style and has a pedestrian gate to the rear, which leads out onto Station Road. Steps lead from the lawn up to a roof terrace above the kitchen. The garden enjoys a southerly-facing orientation and is therefore a suntrap. To the front of the property is space to park immediately to the front of the cottage, although it is not designated to the property. The property is double-glazed and has the benefit of a gas-fired combination boiler heating system to radiators with all mains services understood to be connected.

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.
