Generally well maintained and now requiring renovation and possible extension, subject to any required consents, this semi-detached house provides a superb opportunity for the new owner to create a home to their own specification. Although the property could be worked on as a project prior to occupation, the condition is such that the house could be lived in and updated over time.
The accommodation, now benefiting from gas fired central heating and double glazing, retains some of its period character and has fireplaces in the two reception rooms, pine floorboards and picture rails. On the ground floor there are two reception rooms, a separate hall, kitchen and a cloakroom/WC. A turning staircase leads to a landing off which are two double bedrooms, a good single and a family bathroom.
The front garden is enclosed by a brick wall, has a path to the front door and to the side, leading to the rear garden: this is enclosed by fencing, is primarily laid to lawn with a patio adjacent to the house and has two sheds and a greenhouse. Neighbouring properties have made arrangements to have the footpath kerb dropped and utilise the front garden for off road parking.
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 66 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, 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 new Waitrose and Aldi supermarkets, in addition to the existing Tesco store.
