Shrivenham is one of the larger villages within the Vale of the White Horse and without question one of the most desirable locations in the area. The village is located circa 5 miles to the north east of Swindon and circa 5 miles to the south west of the market town of Faringdon. The village is ideally located for access to the M4 and the A420 leading to Oxford and beyond. The village itself has an extremely active community and a bypass built in 1984 ensures that Shrivenham's rural atmosphere is preserved. There is a lovely tree lined high street with shops, restaurants, public houses, a doctors' surgery, chemist, garage, multiple highly regarded schools as well as a village primary school, nursery and impressive Church, which has parts dating back to the 11th Century. There is a frequent bus service through the village from Swindon to Oxford and back, linking to rail services and airports which is fantastic if a commute to London is a factor. Offered to the market with the additional benefit of no onward chain, properties of calibre rarely find themselves to the market and an internal viewing is highly recommended to appreciate what is on offer.
