This characterful home which was formerly a public house, is full of historic charm throughout. The ground floor living accommodation comprises a splendid sitting and dining room to the front of the property.

In addition to the front living space there is a separate, relaxing snug offering privacy from the main reception. The kitchen incorporates another family dining section creating a pleasant sociable space. What really sets the ground floor accommodation apart is the spacious hallway where you will find the old public house cellar which is a versatile area that could be used for storage, utility or games room. Further to this, two rooms, currently utilised as offices, can be found to the rear of the property; these lead on to a garden room with doors opening to the landscaped garden.

The property includes off-street parking for several cars to the rear, landscaped garden and access to the separate self-contained ancillary accommodation which has its own bedroom, bathroom and kitchen/living area. If ancillary accommodation is not required then this could be continued as an investment property and is currently let in the region of £575 pcm.

The property is Grade II Listed.

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 S6 bus which runs a regular service every 20 minutes through much of the day to Swindon and Oxford.
