The historic market town of Faringdon, which dates back to the 12th Century, is located almost equidistant of Swindon and Oxford on the A420 which leads to the A34, M40 and M4. Mainline railway services to London run from Swindon, Oxford City, Oxford Parkway and Didcot Parkway. The town is served by the Stagecoach S6 bus which runs a regular ½ hourly service through much of the day to Swindon and Oxford and the villages en route.
The town itself has a thriving community and amenities such as the leisure centre, library, independent traders, doctors’ surgery, two primary schools, and a secondary school. A recent retail development includes a Waitrose and an Aldi supermarket, with further retail planned, in addition to the existing Tesco store.

The Shared Ownership scheme is a Part Buy, Part Rent way of owning your own home for a smaller up front payment. With Shared Ownership, you buy a share of your home using a mortgage from a bank or building society and pay a subsidised rent on the share you did not purchase. The combined mortgage and rent is usually less than you’d expect to pay if you bought a similar property outright.
At Walker Drive you can buy a minimum 40% share of your home (the maximum you can buy initially is 75%). When you’re ready, you can buy more shares until you staircase to owning 100% of your home.
To be eligible for this shared ownership home you would need to meet the following criteria:
• Your annual household income does not exceed £80,000
• You have a deposit of at least 5% of the share value
• You do not own another property or have your name on the deeds or a mortgage for a property worldwide.
• This will be your only residence.
• You are a permanent UK resident or have indefinite right to remain.
Please note the minimum share you can purchase can vary depending on your financial situation and you may be asked to purchase a larger share, should your personal circumstances permit.
