Bedrooms: 3
A stunning detached thatched cottage with generous, private, and sunny gardens situated within this pretty unspoilt village.

A most attractive, Grade II listed detached thatched cottage situated within the very heart of the village and lying in a conservation area. This unique home benefits from a truly wonderful and expansive garden-not to be missed.

The cottage is unusual in its layout, though retaining many of its original period features, and offers a great feeling of space, with surprisingly high ceilings. The ground floor comprises a spacious entrance with stairs rising to the first floor, and two good-sized reception rooms, both of which enjoy fireplaces. The sitting room has a wood burning stove and lovely views across the garden. To the rear of the property lies a cloak / shower room and a good family-sized kitchen / diner fitted with bespoke crafted cupboards and dual fuel Smeg cooker. Beyond the kitchen is double bedroom with inbuilt wardrobes and there is access to the large, integral garage with utility area.

The first-floor accommodation is accessed via two separate staircases. The master bedroom is reached from the sitting room which enjoys an en suite bathroom and dressing room. The second staircase rising from the entrance hall leads to a further double bedroom and very generously sized family bathroom, which could be returned to fourth bedroom if required. These two bedrooms could then make use of the shower room on the ground floor which is located directly at the bottom of the stairs. Benefitting from ultra fast broadband, one could easily work at home from this property.

Outside, the property has a much larger than average attached garage with electric up-and-over door with power, light and drainage connected. There is additional loft storage in the garage as well as a utility area. To the rear of the property is a superb garden which has been attractively landscaped to include a patio area with steps rising to a large lawn with trees. Beyond the beech hedge, is a kitchen garden with substantial garden shed and greenhouse with power connected.

Great Coxwell is a small cul-de-sac village about two miles south west of Faringdon, just off the A420 Oxford to Swindon road.

There is a small 12th century church of St Giles and on the edge of the village is the Great Coxwell Barn which was completed in the middle of the 13th century. It is the finest surviving medieval barn in the country and is now owned by the National Trust.

The historic nearby market town of Faringdon 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, a doctor's surgery , fuel station and three supermarkets. Buses travel from the town to private schools at Abingdon and there is a community minibus service around the town on weekday mornings.

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. The town is served by the Stagecoach 66 bus which runs a half-hourly service through much of the day from Swindon to Oxford and back. The town is also ideally positioned for the A420, leading to the A34, M40 and M4 and mainline railway services from Swindon, Oxford and Didcot Parkway.
