Property Description

Full description

74 High Street is a chocolate box cottage situated in the heart of the ever popular village of Watchfield and is believed to be the oldest property in the village, dating back to the 1600s. This charming and quirky detached family home is Grade II listed and is brimming with character and original features, which offers versatile accommodation. The cottage has lovely gardens that surround the property and benefit from a great deal of privacy. Viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate the inherent charm this property offers.

Accommodation - The property is entered into the sitting room, which has an inglenook fireplace with log burning stove, exposed beams and wooden flooring. Moving through, there is a quarry tiled hallway with doors leading to the bathroom, separate WC and laundry room. Beyond this is a double bedroom with windows framing the beautiful garden beyond. A second room with a vaulted ceiling and exposed beams is currently used as a bedroom but could also be used as a snug, study or dining room. Completing the ground floor is the kitchen with larder cupboard, vaulted ceiling with mezzanine and door to the rear garden. From the sitting room, a hidden staircase leads to the first floor where there is a single bedroom with large storage cupboards and doorway leading through to a double bedroom overlooking the village beyond.

Externally - To the front of the property, the garden is well stocked with mature trees and shrubs and the wonderful feature of a water well. A pathway alongside a stone wall leads you to the rear where there is a large lawn, mature trees and hedgerow to the rear boundary. To the side of the property, a driveway provides parking for multiple vehicles. Please note that the ridge and thatch have been replaced recently.

Location - 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.
