VENDORS COMMENT
"We have enjoyed 35 years of living in a quiet and friendly village with a community feel that offers a range of activities. Our children thrived at the local primary school and enjoyed the village duck pond and rural activities. When working it was great to have a country retreat whilst being only 10 minutes away from major routes. Sadly it is a time of life to downsize but we will miss the pleasure of a tranquil and private south facing garden with excellent views where we have enjoyed relaxing and entertaining friends with a BBQ and a glass of wine. The winters also were enhanced by a cosy log fire"

A delightful, individual detached family home, situated within the heart of the pretty Downland village of Bishopstone, and offering extremely well-presented and maintained accommodation.

On the ground floor is an impressive large entrance hall with tiled floor and cloakroom off, leading to a good-sized sitting room with an open fireplace. There is an extensively fitted family kitchen with a freestanding Stoves range cooker, which may be available by separate negotiation. A utility room lies adjacent, with access to the garden. The separate dining room leads into a delightful garden room.

On the first floor is a master bedroom with en suite shower room. There are three further double bedrooms, one of which leads through to an additional study/dressing room/bedroom. This could provide potential for an en suite if required. Completing the first floor is a modern family bathroom.


Outside, to the front of the property, is driveway parking for two vehicles, leading to an integral double garage. The gardens are a particular feature of the property, being very well maintained and enjoying a high degree of privacy. These are mature, well-tended and include two large areas of lawn which wrap around two sides of the property, with an attractive and private sun terrace.

The property is not listed but lies within a conservation area. It benefits from UPVC replacement double glazing throughout and has an oil-fired heating system to radiators.  

AMENITIES Bishopstone is a picturesque village located about six miles east of Swindon and just west of the county border with Oxfordshire. It has a thriving village pub, The Royal Oak, which features in the Good Food Guide. There are a large number of thatched cottages centred around a pretty mill pond, and the village is often used as a base for walkers with excellent access to the Ridgeway National Trail.

The nearby market towns of Faringdon (c. 8 miles) and Wantage (c. 11 miles) provide a good selection of independent and high street stores. The village of Shrivenham (c. 3.5 miles) boasts a doctors' surgery, two supermarkets, a florist, delicatessen and general store.

There is an excellent primary school in the village and most secondary school children attend the Ridgeway School in Wroughton.

Swindon (c. 7.5 miles) gives access to the M4 and a main line railway station for Bristol and London. Oxford (c. 28 miles) has access to the M40.
