Spacious entrance hall with engineered oak floor and impressive staircase, featuring understairs cupboard, double opening glazed doors to dual aspect dining room with engineered oak floor. Fantastic living room featuring engineered oak floor, a light and airy atrium (which has electrically operated blinds) and a coal effect gas fire in a Portuguese limestone surround. The kitchen units are by Nobilia, a leading German brand, with stone worktops and matching upstands and matching extras added by the current owners. With built in appliances including Bosch stainless steel electric oven and ceramic hob and built in fridge/freezer and dishwasher, the original kitchen has a tiled floor with underfloor heating and a fully regularised glazed extension, by Everest, with blue tinted, self-cleaning roof. To the front the property there is a large study with Amtico flooring and the ground floor accommodation is finished off with a cloakroom and separate utility room, with door to the side. The current owners have also added a water softener and LED down lighters where possible.
The atrium floods light on to the spacious first floor landing through the glazed (toughened glass) divide and the property has three double bedrooms, on this floor, two with ensuite facilities. The master bedroom offers a walk through dressing area leading to its ensuite which features both bath and shower. The second bedroom features its own built in double wardrobe with ensuite shower. The third bedroom is still a generous double bedroom and we still have one floor to go…
The top floor could be a teenager’s paradise with two double bedrooms (each with plenty of storage space) and a family bathroom which, like all the other bathrooms, is superbly appointed with Villeroy & Boch sanitary ware, Hansgrohe taps, Amtico flooring, attractive ceramic tiling and heated towel rails. The family bathroom also features a walk in shower and separate bath, with wash hand basin and concealed flush WC.
The property offers an attached double carport to the front for parking (with built in storage units) and landscaped areas to the front and side. There is a handy side gate leading to the secluded rear gardens which feature a westerly aspect and are small but beautifully formed with well-stocked shrub and herbaceous borders. Landscaped by professionals and augmented by the current owner with their own panache and style for wonderful seasonal colour, the garden is a treat.
Winner of a Great British High Street award in 2014, Wantage is superbly situated in the Vale of the White Horse for all the main travel links, with the A338 providing easy access to the A34, M40, M4, plus the rail links in Oxford, Didcot and Swindon. A picturesque Market Town, with historic ties as far back as Alfred the Great, Wantage has many high street and independent retailers with a plethora of bars, restaurants and cafes in a thriving community. King Alfred’s Academy provides outstanding secondary education and is now part of the Vale Academy Trust, working with good primary schools locally, including Charlton and Wantage CofE. With easy access to the beautiful surrounding countryside including the ancient Ridgeway and White Horse Hill, Wantage fuses the semi-urban and rural in one sublime package.
Leave the Market Place via Newbury Street and turn left at the traffic lights on to Ormond Road. Take the next right on to St Gabriel's and continue along to the top where the property will be found on the right.
