Property Description

A spacious detached single storey house set within a generous plot of 1.5 acres with uninterrupted views.

A substantial and well-proportioned detached bungalow situated on the outskirts of the popular village of Charney Bassett.


Approached through a gated driveway, the property offers spacious and flexible accommodation.  The entrance hall leads through to a large kitchen/breakfast room refitted to a high standard in 2015 with a selection of floor mounted units under a Corian worktop, a double Neff oven and integrated dishwasher.  Double patio doors lead to the side garden and windows to the rear provide far reaching views across to the Downs beyond.   A gas fired Rayburn provides additional oven space as well as providing heating/hot water.  To the left of the entrance is a hallway which leads to a family bathroom, 2 double bedrooms and a single bedroom with fitted wardrobes.  The hall way then leads on to a spacious sitting room with wood burner and double doors leading out to a south facing patio area.  Off the sitting room is a generous sized study which could be used as a fourth bedroom.


To the right of the entrance hall is a one bedroom annexe containing a sitting room with double doors to a patio area, double bedroom, bathroom with bath and separate shower and a kitchenette.  The annexe is served by a separate gas fired boiler.



The property is accessed over a gravel driveway which provides parking for up to 5 or more cars.  The land wraps around the property, with vegetable beds and shrubs to the right and a large expanse of lawn to the left and rear.  A 1 acre paddock beyond is currently used in part as an orchard and completes the property.




The pretty village of Charney Bassett is situated to the north of the Vale of the White Horse and has recently been classified as an Area of Open Countryside.  Centred around the Village Green it benefits from a thriving pub, village hall and an active community.  Further information on village activities can be found at www.charneybassett.org.uk.  The city of Oxford and commercial centre of Swindon are easily accessible via the A420 and mainline rail links to London (Paddington) are available from Didcot Parkway, Swindon and Oxford.  The area is well served by Public schools with St Hughs, Pinewood and a selection in Abingdon and Oxford a short distance.  There are excellent primary schools in neighbouring Hanney, Buckland and Stanford in the Vale and both Community Colleges in Wantage and Faringdon have been rated by Ofsted as outstanding.
