Tucked away in the heart of the town just off Gloucester Street and moments from the Market Square this delightful period conversion provides well thought out living with more space than meets the eye with the character of exposed beams throughout the house.
A wooden stable style front door set into a stone wall with brick quoins, opens into a tiled sitting dining room. This has a staircase rising to the first floor, is open through to the kitchen and has French doors to the garden which, in combination with a window to the front, provide a high degree of light, and give an open and airy feel to the living space. The kitchen has matching units, built in oven, hob and cooker hood and laminated work surfaces. A new, wall mounted gas boiler was fitted within the past two years. On the first floor there is a double bedroom and a good single, complemented by a bright, modern bathroom.
Outside to the rear, the sunny, south facing and enclosed courtyard garden forms an extension to the living space and has raised, walled flower beds and a lock up store. At the front, adjacent to the property is a very useful car parking space.
The historic market town of Faringdon, which dates back to the 12th Century, is located almost equidistant of Swindon and Oxford on the A420 which leads to the A34, M40 and M4. Mainline railway services to London run from Swindon, Oxford City, Oxford Parkway and Didcot Parkway. The town is served by the Stagecoach S6 bus which runs a regular ½ hourly service through much of the day to Swindon and Oxford and the villages en-route. The town itself has a thriving community and amenities such as the leisure centre, library, independent traders, doctors’ surgery, two primary schools, and a secondary school. In 2004, Faringdon became the first Fairtrade town in the South East of England. A recent retail development includes a Waitrose and an Aldi supermarket, with further retail offer planned, in addition to the existing Tesco store.
On foot, from our office on Cornmarket, head along Gloucester Street and the property will be found on the left hand side. From the A420 proceed along Park Road and straight over the first and mini roundabout. At the second mini roundabout turn right into Gloucester Street. Look out for Gloucester Street long stay parking on the left and Gloucester Mews will be found just after this, on the right hand side.
By appointment only please.
