Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A most attractive Grade II listed detached thatched cottage situated within the very heart of the village and lying in a conservation area.

The cottage is unusual in its layout, though retaining many of its original period features, and offers an unusual feeling of space for a thatched cottage. The ground floor comprises a spacious entrance with stairs rising to the first floor, and two good-sized reception rooms, both of which enjoy fireplaces. The sitting room has a wood burning stove and lovely views up the garden. To the rear of the property lies a cloak/shower room and a good family-sized kitchen/breakfast room fitted with bespoke crafted cupboards under worktops, and including plumbing for a dishwasher and dual fuel Smeg cooker. Beyond the kitchen is a very large utility/workshop which houses the gas-fired boiler and plumbing for the washing machine and, with some remodelling, could create a substantial family room or work from home office space.

The first floor accommodation is accessed via two separate staircases, the first from the sitting room rising to the master bedroom, which enjoys an en suite bathroom fitted with a white suite and a dressing room with fitted wardrobes. The second staircase rising from the entrance hall leads to a further double bedroom and very generously sized family bathroom, which could be returned to third bedroom if required. These two bedrooms could then make use of the shower room on the ground floor which is located directly at the bottom of the stairs.

Outside, the property has an attached larger than average single garage with electric up-and-over door with power and light connected. To the rear of the property is a superb garden which has been attractively landscaped to include a remodelled patio with steps rising up to a large lawn with trees, and, beyond the beech hedge, a large kitchen garden with substantial garden shed and greenhouse with power connected. 

AMENITIES Great Coxwell is a small cul-de-sac village about two miles south west of Faringdon, just off the A420 Oxford to Swindon road.

There is a small 12th century church of St Giles and on the edge of the village is the Great Coxwell Barn which was completed in the middle of the 13th century. It is the finest surviving medieval barn in the country and is now owned by the National Trust.

The historic nearby market town of Faringdon has a thriving community and amenities such as the Leisure Centre, Library, Faringdon Community College, Junior and Infant schools as well as The Old Station Nursery, a doctor's surgery and a Family Centre. Buses travel from the town to private schools at Abingdon and there is a community minibus service around the town on weekday mornings.

The Tower on Folly Hill was built by Lord Berners in 1935 and affords panoramic views across four counties. For over 20 years, the town has been twinned with Le Mêle-sur-Sarthe in France and in 2004, Faringdon became the first Fairtrade town in the South East of England. The town is served by the Stagecoach 66 bus which runs a half-hourly service through much of the day from Swindon to Oxford and back. The town is also ideally positioned for the A420, leading to the A34, M40 and M4 and mainline railway services from Swindon, Oxford and Didcot Parkway.
