Property Description

A very well presented, modernised semi-detached family house backing onto open countryside, situated within the popular Downland village of Fernham.

Approached across a gravelled driveway, and through a lawned front garden, the front door leads into a hall with staircase to the first floor and a door into the sitting room, which has a fitted solid fuel stove. To the rear is an impressive open plan kitchen/dining room with bi-fold doors to the rear garden. The modern kitchen provides a range of contemporary floor and wall mounted units with wooden surfaces, integrated dishwasher, hob and double oven, a wine cooler and an island breakfast bar. A door leads from the dining area to the utility room and cloak room.

The accommodation on the first floor has a traditional layout, with all rooms accessed from a central landing. The principal bedroom is a generous double and there are two further, well proportioned bedrooms, both with countryside views, and a family bathroom with over bath shower.

To the front of the house is gravelled parking for a number of cars. A path leads to both the front door and to a side gate to the rear garden. This has a paved seating area and lawn and is enclosed by hedge and fencing.


The village of Fernham has an active community and a church that combines as a village hall. The thriving Woodman pub is located in the centre of the village.

The nearby market town of Faringdon provides a range of amenities including primary and secondary schools, Waitrose, Aldi and Tesco supermarkets, a leisure centre and numerous other facilities. The area is served well for private education with St Hugh’s and Pinewood Prep schools both within 10 miles. A regular S6 bus service runs from Faringdon to Oxford and Swindon.

Fernham is approximately 2 miles south of the A420 which leads directly to Swindon (10 miles) to the west and Oxford (12 miles) to the east, where main road and rail links can be found.


From Faringdon head west on the A420 towards Swindon and after 1 mile take the left hand turning signposted to Fernham and Uffington. Upon reaching the village turn left at the ‘T’ junction and follow the road through the village passing the pub on your right hand side. Turn left into Chapel Lane and the property will be found immediately on your left identified by our marketing board.
