Bedrooms: 3
A well presented three bedroom modern family home within a popular location.

Built within the last 10 years, this three bedroom family home has been improved by the current owners. It is situated on the edge of a small cul de sac within this popular development, providing good travel links via the A420 to Oxford and Swindon.

The accommodation is arranged over two floors with the ground floor comprising a nice entrance hallway with stairs leading to the first floor. The cloakroom, which is situated off of the hallway, benefits from having plumbing for a washing machine and also houses the airing cupboard.

The dual aspect sitting room is very bright and benefits from a box bay window to the front. On the other side of the hallway is the dual aspect kitchen/diner. It is fitted with a range of base and wall units, with inbuilt dishwasher, fridge/freezer, double oven and four-ring gas hob. Again, there is a box bay window to the front as well as French doors leading out to the garden at the side of the house.

To the first floor are three well-proportioned bedrooms. The master bedroom benefits from a fitted wardrobe and an en suite shower room. The other two bedrooms also benefit from fitted wardrobes. The family bathroom is fitted with a modern white suite.

Outside, the property has a low maintenance front garden and an enclosed garden to the side of the house which has been recently updated by the current owners and now provides a lovely decked area which is large enough to house a table and chairs. Artificial lawn has been laid to replace the original grass, so now provides year round usage of the garden. There are some well-stocked raised beds and steps which lead to the summer house which has been transformed into a home office. The property also benefits from a single garage (en bloc) and parking.

There is an annual service charge for maintenance of public areas in the development of £342.51. The garage is leasehold and is subject to an annual ground rent fee of £135.57

Watchfield has a charming village centre with a church, village hall and public house, and a small shopping centre with a public house and a restaurant near the roundabout with the A420. The Defence Academy of the United Kingdom provides post-graduate level education for UK and overseas military personnel. Many students and staff live in the village and play an active part in community life. The excellent village primary school has children from several different countries, which makes for an interesting learning environment.

Together, Watchfield and Shrivenham make one of the larger village areas within the Vale of the White Horse and are located to the north east of Swindon (circa 5 miles) and to the south west of the market town of Faringdon (circa 5 miles). A bypass built in 1984 ensures that the rural atmosphere of both villages is preserved. Shrivenham also has an extremely active community. There is a lovely tree-lined high street with shops, restaurants, public houses, a doctors' surgery, village primary school and an impressive church, parts of which date back to the 11th Century. There is also a golf course.

Both villages are ideally located for access to the M4 at Swindon and the A420 leading to Oxford and beyond. There is a frequent bus service from Swindon to Oxford and back.
