With so many positive points, this is a BEAUTIFUL property which must be viewed internally.

This fabulous home has been the subject of a high specification upgrade and extended by the current owners, resulting in flexible and inviting accommodation arranged over two floors and finished to a very high level with state of the art equipment and fittings. It also offers a bespoke solution to working from home with a stand alone office in the garden, large enough for two people.

Entering the house through the modern stylish German-made front door, you are welcomed into the entrance hall, with an oak cloaks cupboard and shoe store with seating. The sitting room boasts fitted storage and an attractive fireplace housing the wood burning stove.

The heart of the home is the stunning new family kitchen/dining room with large bi-folding doors opening on to the sunny garden beyond. The kitchen units include soft close drawers and doors. The eye-level ovens are from Kuppersbusch (as used on MasterChef) with a full-size multi-function oven, a combination oven/microwave and a plate warming drawer. Inset in the worktop is a Franke sink and tap with pull-out nozzle. Inset in the island unit is the five ring Siemens induction hob with a powerful extractor fan, which is inset into the ceiling with extra lights and remote control. There is plumbing for a standard size dishwasher and under the sink a three bin waste unit to make recycling easier. Granite worktops complete the look. Built-in ceiling speakers and under-cupboard lighting complete the luxurious feel to this room. There is space for a larder fridge and also for a separate freezer under the stairs if desired, though currently under the stairs is a free-standing wine storage unit and plenty of space for the dog.

There are two double bedrooms on the ground floor, the first with a large five-door fitted wardrobe. The adjacent bedroom enjoys the use of a recently refurbished en suite with large shower. The room has two double wardrobes and room for a dressing table/desk and a small sofa, perfect for teenagers or guests. A modern family bathroom and extensively fitted utility room complete the ground floor. This includes a freezer, a Miele oven and plumbing for a washing machine. Floors are predominantly Amtico (maple), all the doors are solid wood and panelled.

A staircase to the first floor has inset LED lights and motion sensors, leading to a landing with loft access. A single bedroom room with a study area and built-in cupboards is accessed from the landing. The master bedroom has oak fitted drawers and cupboard which extends beyond the en suite. All the cupboards have motion sensor LED lighting. The en suite is fitted with twin basins set in a granite and a large walk-in shower. The cupboards and drawers in this room are all soft close and there is an Italian-style WC.

The property further benefits from grey aluminum windows throughout. There is a gas fired heating system with a NEST internet connected thermostat and timer. There are 4 mains powered smoke/CO/heat sensors - NEST and wireless/internet connected.

Outside, the rear garden is attractively and thoughtfully landscaped to include a spacious grey slate seating area for garden sofas and tables. Steps lead up to a lawn, a pretty arbour providing shade for alfresco dining and a fruit and herb garden. At the bottom of the garden is the perfect work from home office measuring c 6m x 3m. This is insulated with heating (on thermostat and timer), full electrics and internet cable. This room is used all year round for either work from home or as a quiet place to sit and read. Of course it could easily be a play room, music room, gym, man cave etc. Further storage sheds are available within the garden.

At the front of the house is driveway parking for two vehicles and a low maintenance garden. There is a motion sensor for the outside lights and an outside power socket.

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.
