A well presented end of terrace cottage in a desirable location with a beautifully landscaped garden.

A beautifully presented end of terrace cottage situated in a raised position in East Challow and just a short distance from Wantage town centre and all its amenities. The property has been renovated in recent years and the current owners have put a great deal of time and money into landscaping the garden to create a fantastic outdoor space.

The accommodation comprises a spacious hall with stairs to the first floor, storage, and a lovely stable door out to the garden. The sitting rom is at the rear and features a working fireplace and the kitchen / diner has new French doors on to the patio. The kitchen has recently been refurbished to include a range of floor and wall mounted units, breakfast bar and integrated dishwasher, double oven, and induction hob.

On the first floor are two double bedrooms both with fitted wardrobes and a large single bedroom. Completing the accommodation is a wonderful modern family shower room with walk in rain shower.

Outside the garden has been totally transformed to create a superb entertaining space. There are several patio areas, ideal for alfresco dining and soaking up the summer sun. This wonderful home also has the added benefit of solar panels and off-road parking.

Wantage is a lovely small market town in the Vale of White Horse, and has a good range of shops and services. Links with the past are very strong too - it is notable as the birthplace of King Alfred the Great in 849.

The town lies about 8 miles (13 km) south-west of Abingdon and a similar distance west of Didcot and is at the crossing of the B4507 valley road, the A417 road between Reading and Cirencester and the A338 road between Hungerford (and junction 14 of the M4 motorway) and Oxford. There are main line railway services from Didcot Parkway.

There is one state secondary school in Wantage, King Alfred's Academy, and some ten primary schools. There are also several independent schools in Abingdon, Oxford and nearby villages.

Wantage has a fine reputation for the arts – music, dances and poetry – and this is celebrated each year with an Arts Festival during the summer. John Betjeman lived in The Mead, Wantage (by Letcombe Brook) for many years and wrote poetry about Wantage. Thomas Hardy's "Jude the Obscure" was set in nearby Letcombe Bassett where "Arabella's Cottage" can still be seen.
