This exquisite four bedroom home has the most delightful views across open fields to the Ridgeway - simply stunning

Built in 2007, this truly exquisite home has been meticulously renovated to the highest standard. Situated in Fawler- lying in the heart of the Vale of the White Horse- Foxglove Cottage offers exceptional views up to the Ridgeway.

This four-bedroom property boasts spacious accommodation with areas of open plan living and underfloor heating throughout.

Upon entering you are greeted by a welcoming entrance hall with a solid wood staircase and hardwood flooring which runs seamlessly into the sitting / dining room. A wonderfully light and airy room, this room features exposed oak beams and a large wood burning stove with a grand brick surround. Being L-shaped the living area is a wonderfully cosy space with bi-fold doors out to the patio. The dining space is the perfect place for entertaining and is separated from the lounge area by freshly laid sisal carpet.

The kitchen / breakfast room, crafted and installed by Searle & Taylor of Winchester, has an array of bespoke handmade and hand painted oak units with quartz work surfaces. There are many integrated appliances such as a Miele dishwasher, Rangemaster cooker, In-line Hague soft water system, Quooker tap and American style fridge freezer with a reverse osmosis water filtration system. The breakfast bar with high level seating offers a superb way to start your day, having a morning coffee whilst looking out through the bi-fold doors onto the cottage garden and the spectacular views over farmers fields beyond.

Completing the downstairs accommodation is a pantry, cloakroom with high-level Victorian toilet and a utility room which has been finished to the same specification as the kitchen.

On the first floor, the stunning master bedroom offers vaulted ceilings, exposed oak beams, large built-in wardrobes, and a newly refurbished en-suite shower room with walk in rain-shower.

There are three further double bedrooms, all with exposed oak beams, built-in wardrobes and quirky ceilings and angles bringing into being an undoubtedly unique home. These are serviced by a family bathroom.

Outside the attention to detail continues. To the front of the property there is a gravelled drive providing parking for several vehicles with gated access to the rear garden.

The established south facing cottage garden is predominantly laid to lawn and edged with flowered borders. A large private courtyard area and decking provide more than ample room for alfresco dining and the south facing courtyard is perfect place to soak up summer rays. The garden is separated from a neighbouring farmer's field by a brook.

This fabulous home has the potential to offer further scope for extension subject to necessary planning permission and benefits from coming to the market with no onward chain and high speed fibre optic broadband. Foxglove Cottage has easy access to the local cricket, tennis and football clubs, shop, post office and farmers' market.

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.
