Situation

The property lies in this tree lined avenue,
one of the prime roads in Abingdon, one of England's oldest market towns. The town features architecture dating from 1100 and includes many historic buildings, with the heart of the town dominated by the County Hall. By the mid 17th century, the main industries of the town included malting and brewing, along with several trades associated with clothing and textiles. The town is also where MG sports cars were manufactured until 1980, when production ceased after 50 years. Today, it is a thriving market town with a Monday market that has existed since 1556, and a well supported monthly farmers market. The River Thames provides a delightful setting for Abingdon with its meadows, lock and riverside walks. It lies approximately 8 miles to the south of Oxford city centre and approximately 8 miles from Didcot Parkway mainline station, with a regular service to London Paddington in approximately 45 minutes. There is also good access to an excellent choice of schools, in both Oxford and Abingdon.
