Truly stunning two bedroom mid-terraced period cottage, situated in the heart of Faringdon old town, well presented to an exceptional standard, with secluded rear gardens

Truly stunning two bedroom mid-terraced period cottage, well presented to an exceptional standard, and perfectly located in the heart of Faringdon old town, with easy reach of the Folly, good schooling and nearby local amenities.

The property has been recently re-decorated throughout, with a newly fitted contemporary kitchen leading from the generous front reception room.

The dual-aspect sitting/dining room has exposed wooden flooring and ceiling beams, and a beautiful inglenook fireplace with cast-iron wood burner.

Leading up into the kitchen, the refitted wall and base units offer plenty of storage, with built-in electric oven, built-in dishwasher and space and plumbing for a washing machine. From the kitchen, there is access to the landscaped south-facing rear garden, which enjoys a good deal of seclusion.

Leading from the kitchen, up a couple of steps, is the main landing area, with a large storage cupboard and access to the second double bedroom with its sliding triple wardrobe.

The landing area in turn, leads up to the main double bedroom, with a number of exposed A-frame beams and walk-in double wardrobe. Adjacent to the main bedroom, is the well-appointed family bathroom, with a lovely fitted bath, separate shower cubicle, low level wc and pedestal wash-hand basin.

Outside, the secluded garden offers an immediate paved patio area, stepped up to a larger wooden-decked terrace, with interspersed flower and shrubs borders, the whole enclosed by brick walling and panelled fencing.

VENDOR QUOTE: I have loved living in this house, which is full of character. You can enjoy a drink in the south-facing garden - it is a real sun trap. The large bathroom has a lovely luxurious bath and separate shower. You can cosy up in an armchair, by the log burner in winter. The people of Faringdon are very friendly.

Faringdon is an attractive and thriving market town on the edge of the Thames Valley and located in the heart of the Vale of the White Horse. With the ridgeway to one side and the river Thames to the other, the town is surrounded by countryside.

With easy access and great transport links to both Oxford and Swindon, Faringdon and the surrounding villages are the perfect choice for anyone working in either location or even commuting further afield. The town boasts a fantastic selection of primary and secondary schools, including Faringdon Infants & Junior School and Faringdon Community College. In the surrounding villages there are a wide range of other primary schools, along with St Hugh's Prep School in Carswell and Pinewood School in nearby Shrivenham. The area is a popular choice for people with young families.

Faringdon town also boasts a good range of shops, with 3 supermarkets on the outskirts of town, and small independent shops and businesses in it's centre. This is complemented by a range of local restaurants and bars, including Floyds Grill, Las Chicas, The Bell, The Narrows and the Gin to my Tonic bar who also host gin festivals at nearby Sudbury House Hotel! This certainly appeals to a diverse range of local residents of all ages.

The town also has a wide range of leisure activities available, with a Better Leisure Centre located close to the Community College Site. There are active football clubs, rugby clubs, tennis clubs and cricket clubs with activities and teams for everyone, and the town also benefits from cycling and running groups. In addition to this, there are plenty of extra-curricular activities available with a local dramatic society staging regular productions throughout the year, community choirs and Rotary groups.

The town has an annual summer musical festival, FollyFest, held in the town centre, with weekly markets on a Tuesday and Saturday morning. At Christmas, the community comes together to watch Father Christmas ride into town on Thomas the Tank Engine to turn on the Christmas lights – it must be seen to be believed!!

Faringdon's iconic building is the unique and unusual Folly, the last major folly to be built in England. Standing 100 feet tall, it's open to the public twice a month between Easter and October and on a clear day views over five counties can be seen from the top.
