Description The Old Bull is a six bedroom Grade II Listed house with extensive accommodation, located within a conservation area and just outside the centre of the town. Dating from the 18th century this substantial former hostelry has been transformed into an individual family home of some considerable character with light, versatile accommodation extending to 3,855 square feet (358 SqM) over three floors, exposed stonework and timbers, renovated sash windows, period features, a self-contained one bedroom annexe and plenty of parking.
Principal accommodation on the ground floor provides a large sitting and dining room which has two fireplaces and occupies the full width of the front of the building, a snug/reading room, a practical split level kitchen /breakfast room and a large cellar utility room. Two further rooms to the rear currently provide office space and lead through to a garden room.
The four first floor bedrooms are all doubles and include a generous master bedroom which is approached by its own staircase and has twin double wardrobes and an ensuite wet room. There is a family bathroom and also a separate cloakroom. A turning staircase to the second floor opens into a small sitting room and two further double bedrooms.
The rear of the property has access from London Street with parking for several vehicles and an enclosed and landscaped garden with a particularly secluded feel and independent access to a self-contained flat. This has its own bedroom, bathroom and kitchen/living area and if required, has proven to attract an income in the region of Â£575 per calendar month; or the accommodation could potentially be incorporated into the main house.
The historic market town of Faringdon, which dates back to the 12th Century, is located almost equidistant of Swindon and Oxford on the A420 which leads to the A34, M40 and M4. Mainline railway services to London run from Swindon, Oxford City, Oxford Parkway and Didcot Parkway. The town is served by the Stagecoach 66 bus which runs a regular Â½ hourly service through much of the day to Swindon, Oxford and the villages en-route. The town itself has a thriving community and amenities such as the Leisure Centre, Library, Doctors Surgery, two primary schools, and a secondary school. In 2004, Faringdon became the first Fairtrade town in the South East of England. A recent retail development includes new Waitrose and Aldi supermarkets in addition to the existing Tesco store.
