An individual detached family home, which is beautifully presented throughout and situated towards the edge of Faringdon and yet within walking distance of the town centre.

Leylands is a individual and unique detached home, beautifully presented throughout and situated towards the edge of Faringdon and yet within walking distance of the town centre.

The impressive entrance hall sits in the heart of the home with stairs rising to the first floor and at the far end a couple of steps leading down to the cloakroom and cloak cupboard. Two of the reception rooms flank the impressive hallway: the dual aspect sitting room is circa 25ft long, with the focal point of the room being an impressive fireplace with an inset Stovax Sheraton wood burning stove. The dining room sits to the other side of the hallway and is adjacent to the kitchen, making it an ideal room for evening entertaining.

They say a kitchen is the heart of the home, and this is so true in this property. The kitchen has been well designed and is fitted with a wide range of painted wall and floor units. Highlights of the kitchen include a gas-fired Aga with double oven and the central island that houses a Miele induction hob. There are various other Miele appliances which include a dishwasher, coffee machine, warming drawer, steamer oven and oven. The kitchen is finished with a double ceramic Belfast sink and granite worktops throughout. The underfloor heating extends through to the conservatory, which is at the rear of the kitchen, and this conservatory area has ample space for a dining table. Providing wonderful views across the rear garden, this is an ideal place to sit and relax with a cup of tea or a dinner party with friends. Adjacent to the kitchen is the utility room which has a further range of hand painted units with granite worktops and space for a washing machine and tumble dryer. In addition, there is also a useful study which completes the ground floor accommodation

On the first floor, the gallery landing leads to four of the bedrooms. The master bedroom is impressive in size with built-in wardrobes and an en suite shower room. Two of the other bedrooms share a Jack and Jill shower room, and a family bathroom fitted with under floor heating and a modern white suite, housing both a bath and separate shower, complete this floor. On the second floor, there are three further impressive bedrooms.

In addition to the accommodation in the main house, there is a separate entrance to further accommodation. These additional spaces could be transformed into an annexe or used for office space as needed (subject to appropriate permissions). An entrance hallway with cloakroom has stairs rising to the first floor and a private door linking into the main house. Within the ground floor space is a double garage and sitting behind it is a gym/studio, complete with climbing wall and sauna! On the first floor, there is a 24ft games room and an office, both of which have inbuilt storage. A cloak room completes this floor.

Externally, the property is approached through wooden gates and has ample driveway parking which leads to the double garage, and the oak carport and storeroom. The handy storeroom houses the property's meters and controls for the solar panels. There is a total of 16 panels on the property and these feed into storage batteries, with any excess being sold back to the grid. There is also an electric car charging point at the front of the house.

The formal front garden has terraced beds with a fountain water feature and a variety of hedges providing a good level of privacy. Side gates provide access to the enclosed rear garden. This private mature garden is mainly laid to lawn with some rare specimen trees, vegetable garden and a green house. The fabulous patio area spans the rear of the home, making it a great place for entertaining.
