Full description

Fairview is a beautiful Grade II Listed cottage recently renovated and modernised, yet still full of character and charm.

Dating back to the 17th century there are attractive inglenook fireplaces and original beams which combine very well with the
contemporary design of the kitchen and bathrooms, and the property is light with very good ceiling heights. There are wonderful far-reaching views of the surrounding countryside.

On the ground floor there are two good sized
reception rooms, both with big inglenook fireplaces, and a lovely well-fitted kitchen with
painted wooden cupboards, a range-style cooker and a stable door leading out to the terrace. There is also a useful utility room, walk-in larder and a shower room.

Upstairs there are three large double bedrooms
with outstanding views of the garden and
farmland beyond, together with a family bathroom. Above the garage there is a further bedroom and separate WC.

Fairview is situated in the pretty downland village of West Challow on the edge of the Berkshire
Downs in the Vale of the White Horse.

The nearby market town of Wantage is less than
three miles away and offers a popular weekly market and regular farmers' market as well as a comprehensive range of shops, including a Waitrose supermarket. There are also leisure, health and recreational facilities, a library, museum, cafes, restaurants and various public

There are a number of excellent schools in the area including The Ridgeway primary school, St
Hughes, Cothill, The Dragon School, St Helen and St Katharine's School, Radley College and
Downe House.

Communications are very good with access to the M4 motorway and the A34, both linking with the national road network, and there is a fast train service from Didcot into London Paddington.

The garden surrounds the house and is mainly laid to lawn with a gravel path edged by pretty flower borders leading up to the front door. There are a number of mature shrubs, trees and hedges, and at the rear of the house a lovely secluded terrace area looks out over the surrounding farmland.

The property benefits from a double garage and a large gravel parking area. Above the garage there is an additional room currently used as a bedroom, which would also be ideal as an office or games room. There is a useful storage room at the side of the house.
