TRULY UNIQUE, offering plenty of space to work from home and easy access to a variety of countryside walks. This EXCEPTIONAL PERIOD town COTTAGE will surprise and delight you.

Deliciously quirky, enchanting and flexible, this beautiful character home offers over 2,000 sq ft of accommodation. It is conveniently located within walking distance of the town's schools, buses and shops and internal viewing is essential to fully appreciate all that the property has to offer.

The sitting room has been created from two reception rooms and thus boasts two fireplaces and a wood burning stove. The kitchen really is the heart of this home, warmed by the Rayburn and allowing space for the children to eat or do their homework while you cook. To the rear is a beautiful garden room with double doors opening onto the garden, a vaulted ceiling and attractive fireplace with coal fired stove. The study is discreetly located where you will not be disturbed and the breakfast room provides access to a first floor bedroom, shower room, utility and store room.

On the first floor are three double bedrooms, a twin room and a generous family bathroom. NB En-suite facilities and a dressing room could be created from the twin bedroom as it lies adjacent to the family bathroom.

Outside the property boasts an enclosed and private, southerly facing garden. Laid to lawn with patio, garden shed and well stocked borders, it is warm enough for the grape vine to flourish.

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.
