8 West Street has been a much-loved family home for over twenty years. Dating from the 1930’s, this semi-detached property has been thoughtfully extended and beautifully decorated to provide four good sized bedrooms, two reception rooms and a large kitchen-diner with views onto the south facing garden and open fields beyond. Outside there is a paved driveway providing off-street parking for three cars.
From the entrance hall, turn left into the cosy sitting room which features neutral coloured walls and carpet, a lovely wood-burning stove and large sash window. Walk through into dining room (currently being used as a home office), and then into the stunning and extremely spacious kitchen/diner. This lovely, sunny room features stripped wood flooring, Corian work surfaces, a good range of integrated appliances and a fantastic Rayburn range cooker. Downstairs there’s also a modern cloakroom / shower room which also houses the washing machine and tumble dryer.
Upstairs the pretty master bedroom has stripped wood flooring, a large sash window which lets in plenty of light, and an alcove providing built in wardrobe space. There are three further bedrooms upstairs (two double and one large single) and a spacious, modern family bathroom.
With summer just around the corner, you’ll want to spend plenty of time outside in this fantastic south-facing garden. From the decked area to the side and rear of the house, providing space for outdoor dining, step up onto the large lawn which boasts views of open countryside as far as the eye can see. There are also two sheds in the garden providing useful extra storage.
The village of Childrey is probably one of the best kept secrets in this part of Oxfordshire. A quintessential English village, with stunning country views, a picturesque duck pond, beautiful Church, highly regarded primary school and fantastic deli/coffee shop, it’s no wonder many people who move here never want to leave!
Childrey offers peaceful country living and a thriving village community, but is just 3 miles from Wantage with its shops and amenities including a Waitrose, Costa Coffee, restaurants, parks and leisure centre. Wantage is a thriving market town that has recently been identified by The Sunday Times as a great place to live. Childrey also offers easy access to Oxford, Swindon and Newbury, and trains to London from nearby Didcot Parkway (11 miles). It’s very welcoming village with social functions throughout the year organised by the church, school and local community. There are fabulous pubs in the neighbouring villages of Sparsholt and Letcombe Regis, both within walking distance through beautiful countryside.
The Ridgeway CE Primary School in the village has a great reputation and King Alfred’s Academy in Wantage has an Outstanding Ofsted rating. There is a joint bus service from the village to Abingdon Boys School, The School of St Helen and St Katherine, and The Manor Preparatory School.
