This mature mid-terraced cottage has been sensitively and attractively renovated and refurbished by the current owner over the past seven years. Situated in a quiet backwater of the town and in a traffic free environment, the cottage is nicely tucked away, yet is only a few minutes' walk from the town centre and nearby supermarket.

The accommodation comprises a spacious extended sitting room with a fireplace with wood burning stove, a dining area and French doors out on to the rear garden. The kitchen includes attractive wooden worktops with a Belfast sink, a concealed gas-fired boiler and an integral oven, hob and extractor and space for a fridge.

On the first floor is a double bedroom, with attractive original fireplace and fitted wardrobes, and access to the loft which is reached by a drop-down ladder. This space has been plastered and floored. Also on the first floor is a single bedroom and a bathroom with short bath with seat and shower over, which is fitted with a white suite.

Outside, the property has a useful storage shed to the rear with power connected for white goods. To the front is an enclosed and sunny garden which has been landscaped to include a patio with lawn, a raised flower border and an area of decking.

The property is not thought to be listed.

AMENITIES The historic market town of Faringdon, dating back at least to the 12th century, 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, doctors' and dentists' surgeries and a Family Centre. Buses travel from the town to private schools at Abingdon. The town now boasts three large supermarkets.

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 frequent service from Swindon to Oxford and back. Faringdon is also ideally positioned for the A420, leading to the A34, M40 and M4 and mainline railway services from Swindon, Oxford, Oxford Parkway and Didcot Parkway.
