Hunkered down under the Berkshire Downs, Wantage goes back to Roman times and is a small Oxfordshire market town with half-timbered buildings, and a statue to King Alfred who was born here. Oxford is just 14 miles to the north-east while the surrounding countryside is a delight, and the ancient Ridgeway passes just to the south.
Look out for the legendary White Horse of Uffington, and the attractive streets around the square, where a market is held twice weekly.
While Wantage’s historic core features townhouses and cottages from all eras from medieval to Victorian, with the latter especially prominent around Ormand and Charlton Roads. Wantage also has some more modern housing including post-war estates.
If you’re upgrading a period home in Wantage, especially if you are in a conservation area, you may be restricted in what you can do. But you could choose our elegant sliding sash windows as one perfect solution for improving an older home, and benefit from their noise and heat loss reduction features.
Our Victorian and Edwardian conservatories, as well as the lean-to models, also suit more traditional houses, while orangeries provide another option.
Finally, our composite, uPVC and other doors will suit your Wantage home whatever its age. Talk to us today about which one would best suit your property.
