The spacious accommodation includes an entrance porch, hallway, downstairs wc, well proportioned sitting room with an open fire, and an open plan kitchen/dining room with wood burning stove and french doors leading to the rear garden. A side addition provides a useful study, utility room and workshop while on the first floor there are three bedrooms and a family bathroom with the upper floor, a loft room used as a further double bedroom (see agents note). On the outside there is a double width driveway and an attractive front garden while the rear garden is an absolute delight with a considerable degree of maturity and thoughtful planting together with an ornamental pond and stone built shed (which was a former pigsty).
Farmborough is a popular and vibrant village community with two public houses, popular primary school rated outstanding by Ofsted, village hall and hairdressers and with a community shop due to open shortly. An existing shop and petrol station is situated at nearby Marksbury and there is a good range of village amenities in Timsbury about a mile away.
