Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A spacious 3 bedroom semi-detached house with large front, side and rear gardens, situated in a quiet and popular village location.  Potential to extend subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents.

Approached across a path, an enclosed porch leads through to the front door and a central hall off which is the sitting room to the right, with a wood burning stove.  To the left is an open plan kitchen/dining room which also has a wood burning stove.  To the left of the kitchen is an inner lobby which leads to a cloakroom, utility room, workshop/store and a recently added conservatory.

Stairs from the hall lead to the first floor where there are 2 double bedrooms and a single bedroom.  A family bathroom completes the first floor.

To the front is a driveway providing parking for 2 cars.  The garden wraps around the side of the house to the rear and provides a mixture of productive vegetable beds, seating areas, 2 ponds and established planting.  The current owners purchased additional land to create which is now very generous outside space.  There is the potential to extend the property, subject to acquiring the necessary planning consents.



The pretty village of Uffington lies on the edge of the Vale of the White Horse, just north of the Berkshire Downs and has a number of historical connections. Overlooking the village is the chalk White Horse, which was cut into the hillside some 3,000 years ago.  The village boasts its own museum, the Thomas Hughes Museum - the author having been born in Uffington Vicarage - and the Poet Laureate, Sir John Betjeman also having lived in the village.  Uffington has a majestic church regarded as the Cathedral of the Vale, a well-equipped village store with Post Office, a popular primary school and pre-school, together with a lovely traditional public house, village hall, community sports ground and a host of community organisations. 

The village has good road links to Oxford (15 miles) and Swindon (11 miles) via the A420, with more local facilities and secondary schools available in the nearby market towns of Faringdon (6 miles) and Wantage (7 miles).  Major rail links to London and the west are available from Swindon, Didcot and Oxford.  The village is well positioned for a number of excellent independent schools such as St Hugh’s and Pinewood Prep schools, as well as Abingdon School, Our Ladies and St Helens & St Katharine’s, all of which are in Abingdon (15 miles).



Viewings are strictly  by appointment only. From the A417, turn onto the Baulking road, signposted Baulking and Uffington and follow for approximately 5 miles until reaching Uffington.  At the T junction, turn right and follow the road until you reach the entrance to the car park of the Uffington Memorial Village Hall.  Opposite this entrance on the opposite side of the road is a turning signposted to Lower Common & White Horse.  Take this turning and when the road forks, bear right.  Follow the road until you reach a Private Road sign and the property will be found on the right, identified by our For Sale board.
