Property Description

An extended three bedroom family house situated in an elevated position at the end of a popular, established no through road and well placed for the town centre, schools, the A420 and nearby supermarkets.

In an elevated position at the end of a popular residential no through road, with a more open feel to its surroundings and an excellent view of the town and Folly tower from the first floor, this well-kept home provides extended living space along with the practical and well laid out family accommodation that only an established modern house can provide.

An entrance lobby, combined with a large cupboard in the hall provides practical space for coats and shoes and there is a useful ground floor cloakroom. Off the hall is a fitted kitchen with matching units, coordinated floor tiles and work surfaces, cooker hood and spaces for appliances. The sitting room has been extended to create a dining area, there is a fireplace and patio doors to the rear garden. Stairs from the sitting room rise to a landing, off which are two good double bedrooms - with far reaching views from the main bedroom – a single room and the family bathroom.

The landscaped rear garden is safely enclosed by fencing and has gated foot access. There is a patio area which is enclosed by timber clad flower beds - ideal for barbecues – and has steps up to the lawn, which has shrub borders and a small wooden garden shed. At the front of the house there is convenient parking in front of the open plan garden and a garage in a nearby block.


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.


Heading toward the town centre along Park Road, turn left into Butts road hen right into Marines Drive. At the top of the hill, bear left and the property will be found on the right hand side, back from the road, at the centre of a small terrace.


By appointment only please.
