Property description

46 Dove Court is part of a McCarthy and Stone development for the over 55s, situated in the centre of the historic market town of Faringdon. The apartment is situated on the first floor and benefits substantially from its close proximity to the lift.

A large and airy entrance hall welcomes you into the apartment and leads into the sitting room which enjoys an outlook over the communal gardens below. The kitchen is of a good size and has a range of wall and floor mounted fitted units, electric hob and an integrated eye-level oven. The double bedroom has mirror-fronted built-in wardrobes and provides ample space for furnishings. Completing the accommodation is a bathroom with a WC and wash hand basin.

Amenities in Dove Court include a residents' lounge, a washing/drying room and a guest suite which can be booked for visiting family or friends.

The tenure is understood to be Leasehold, with a 125 year lease from 2005 (112 years remaining). The service charge is approximately £2,080 per annum and the ground rent is £395 per annum.

Amenities The historic market town of Faringdon, dating back at least to the 12th century, has a thriving community and amenities such as the Leisure Centre, Library, Faringdon Community College, Junior and Infant schools as well as The Old Station Nursery, doctors' and dentists' surgeries and a Family Centre. Buses travel from the town to private schools at Abingdon.

The Tower on Folly Hill was built by Lord Berners in 1935 and affords panoramic views across four counties. For over 20 years, the town has been twinned with Le Mêle-sur-Sarthe in France and in 2004, Faringdon became the first Fairtrade town in the South East of England. The town is served by the Stagecoach 66 bus which runs a frequent service from Swindon to Oxford and back. The town is also ideally positioned for the A420, leading to the A34, M40 and M4 and mainline railway services from Swindon, Oxford and Didcot Parkway.
