Property description

Tenure: Freehold


Offered to the market in the extremely sought-after location of Shrivenham is this stunning 17th Century Grade II listed row of cottages which was original constructed as Almshouses. Offering a wealth of history including Oliver Cromwell bringing his soldiers back to this very Cottage. Originally the property was constructed as two cottages and having been extended and improved over recent years this is a rare and unique family home. Offering spacious and generous accommodation throughout and boasting a large plot, an internal viewing is highly recommended to appreciate what this wonderful home has to offer.

The property comprises; two main entrances from the front and one to the rear. The ground floor includes three versatile and very flexible reception rooms with beautiful exposed beams and open fireplaces. Also, on the ground floor is an open plan kitchen/ dining room with exposed stone walling and French doors onto the front garden and church views. An additional benefit to the ground floor accommodation is a separate shower room and a further separate family bathroom. Completing the ground floor is the increasingly desirable study/office. The first floor comprises four generous double bedrooms with high ceilings, exposed beams and their own individual stair cases from the ground floor.

Externally the property boasts an impressive and spacious enclosed front garden and a large private rear garden which is mainly laid to lawn and with a patio area. The garden offers a range of apple trees as well as shrubbery and borders. There is also a really useful outbuilding/ summerhouse which has power and light, again could be used as a home office or additional storage. The off-road parking is accessed by a gated entrance to the rear of the property.

Shrivenham is one of the larger villages within the Vale of the White Horse and without question one of the most desirable locations in the area. The village is located circa 5 miles to the north east of Swindon and circa 5 miles to the south west of the market town of Faringdon. The village is ideally located for access to the M4 and the A420 leading to Oxford and beyond. The village itself has an extremely active community and a bypass built in 1984 ensures that Shrivenham's rural atmosphere is preserved. There is a lovely tree lined high street with shops, restaurants, public houses, a doctors' surgery, chemist, garage, multiple highly regarded schools as well as a village primary school, nursery and impressive Church, which has parts dating back to the 11th Century. There is a frequent bus service through the village from Swindon to Oxford and back, linking to rail services and airports which is fantastic if a commute to London is a factor. Offered to the market with the additional benefit of no onward chain, properties of calibre rarely find themselves to the market and an internal viewing is highly recommended to appreciate what is on offer.
