Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A semi-detached early Victorian cottage, situated along Watchfield's High Street close to the parish church and within walking distance of the popular village school.

The property has characterful accommodation comprising, on the ground floor, a spacious entrance hall leading into the sitting room, which has a large open fireplace, a second reception room, which can be used as a dining room, study or playroom, and a much enlarged and very attractive family kitchen/dining room which has French doors out on to the rear garden. This is extensively fitted with a range of floor and wall mounted units and includes a dual fuel cooking range with extractor over, ceramic sink unit and integral fridge and dishwasher. A utility lies off the kitchen and leads to a cloak/shower room. Of note on the ground floor are the lovely flagstone floors.

On the first floor is a master bedroom with fitted wardrobes, two further double bedrooms and a modern family bathroom fitted with a white suite and attractive tiling.

Outside, to the front of the property, is driveway parking currently for two vehicles which could be extended to park more if required. The front garden includes a shed and is laid to lawn with a central pathway. To the rear is a large and sheltered paved patio area, which leads to a stone outbuilding with power and light connected. The rear garden is laid mainly to lawn and extends to the rear of the neighbour's property on two levels. The garden enjoys a sunny aspect and a safe environment for children to play.

The property is believed to have all mains services connected, with a mixture of sealed unit and UPVC double glazing, a gas heating system to radiators and the tenure is assumed to be freehold.

AMENITIES Watchfield has a charming village centre with a church, village hall and public house, and a small shopping centre with a public house and a restaurant near the roundabout with the A420. The Defence Academy of the United Kingdom provides post-graduate level education for UK and overseas military personnel. Many students and staff live in the village and play an active part in community life. The excellent village primary school has children from several different countries, which makes for an interesting learning environment.

Together, Watchfield and Shrivenham make one of the larger village areas within the Vale of the White Horse and are located to the north east of Swindon (circa 5 miles) and to the south west of the market town of Faringdon (circa 5 miles). A bypass built in 1984 ensures that the rural atmosphere of both villages is preserved. Shrivenham also has an extremely active community. There is a lovely tree-lined high street with shops, restaurants, public houses, a doctors' surgery, village primary school and an impressive church, parts of which date back to the 11th Century. There is also a golf course.

Both villages are ideally located for access to the M4 at Swindon and the A420 leading to Oxford and beyond.
