  • Bedrooms: 4
A rare opportunity to buy a four bedroom village home with a detached annexe including a double garage. Perfect for two generations of the same family looking to live together.

The house has accommodation comprising an entrance hall, a sitting room with an attractive open fireplace, a dining room, a double glazed conservatory, a family room/snug, a fitted kitchen, a utility room housing the gas boiler, and a cloakroom.

On the first floor are four bedrooms, the smallest of which is currently being used as a dressing room with fitted wardrobes, and a family bathroom.

The annexe is detached and currently comprises a double garage with office, storeroom, utility and cloakroom. Stairs rise to further rooms above. The first floor has potential to be separated from the ground floor as a one-bedroom apartment with an external staircase. The annexe has a separate electricity meter but is believed to share the gas supply with the main property.

Outside, the property has driveway parking for several vehicles and a much larger than average front garden, which is laid to lawn with a mature hedge and greenhouse. The rear garden is fully enclosed and attractively landscaped to include well-stocked flowerbeds and borders and a large patio. It also has two disused garden sheds.

AMENITIES Shellingford is a village about 2.5 miles south-east of Faringdon in the Vale of White Horse. There is a parish church, St Faith's, and a Church of England primary school rated as 'Good' by Ofsted and 'Outstanding' by SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools) since 2012.

The nearby 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 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 frequent service 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.
