This fabulous (Grade 2 Listed) home was converted from the former priory some 40 years ago to create an exceptional home of immense style in what has become a safe haven, a quiet community within a few minutes walk of the Market Place. The garden cannot fail to impress, at c0.23 of an acre where you are shielded from the irritations and bustle of modern life and where you are immersed in nature, there is a clear sense of monastic peace. In the house the proportions have great elegance whilst feeling warm and homely.
The accommodation includes a bright, open and clear hallway with door to a cloakroom. Then the very splendid reception room of spectacular proportions that serves as both sitting room and dining room with dramatic ceiling height and very beautiful windows. The kitchen is bright, attractive and well appointed with a door to the terrace and garden.
Upstairs there are four good bedrooms, a family bathroom and a very smart en suite. But then the surprise - from the landing a staircase leads to the second floor where you find a tremendous 37ft room that might serve as an excellent work room or playroom and from here you step into the splendid home office with its beautiful south facing window.
There is current consent P18/V2075/LB to create accommodation on the second floor bathroom, playroom, study/bedroom.
Outside is like stepping into another world. It is hard to believe you are so close to the centre of town as you arrive on the terrace with its peaceful outlook over almost a quarter of an acre of tranquil garden.
Wantage is famous for its connection with King Alfred who is said to have allowed the cakes he was minding, to burn whilst distracted with thoughts of his next battle. The town has a good selection of interesting shops, cafes and restaurants as well as Waitrose and Sainsburys. The schools, both secondary and primary, are excellent and the town is well placed for easy access to a variety of exceptional private schools.
Didcot rail station with its frequent fast trains to London Paddington (c42mins) is little more than 15 minutes by car.
The town is at the foot of what used to be called The Berkshire Downs, glorious rolling hills perfect for walking, running, cycling, riding with fabulous views from The Ridgeway path.
In the past the property did have planning consent for a wonderful garden room extension (now lapsed)
