    About this property

    • Bunny Row cottage is a Grade II listed, thatched cottage set in the desirable village of Upper Heyford. Thought to have been built in the early 18th century as a whole barn, this stone built mid terraced property has been converted into a row of pretty and versatile homes.

      Entering into the sitting room you are greeted by a wealth of period features including an inglenook fireplace with an old bread oven and new Clearview multi fuel log burner, exposed original beams and deep window sills.

      The property was later extended to the rear in the 1970's to incorporate a spacious kitchen/ breakfast room. The current vendor has put in a new modernised and contemporary kitchen with lots of gadgets. These include a five ring AEG induction hob, integrated dishwasher and washing machine. There is also a tiled floor with underfloor heating and a Bluetooth speaker integrated in the skirting board. There is also plenty of room for a table, and a back door which leads directly out into the garden.

      Upstairs on the first floor there is a good size landing with two double bedrooms, the family bathroom, an airing and storage cupboard. Both bedrooms are of good size. The bedroom to the front of the property has an inbuilt storage cupboard and a walk in wardrobe. The bedroom to the rear of the property has plenty of room and a lovely view of the garden. The family bathroom has also been recently modernised and has an impressive double shower, a heated towel rail and underfloor heating.

      On the second floor you will find the principal bedroom. Again, it has characterful period features like exposed stone walls and exposed original beams and it also has useful storage cupboards in eaves storage

      The rear of the property benefits from a newly laid patio garden. A manageable size and low maintenance. The garden is enclosed by stone walling and offers an outside store with working electrics – currently used as an outside office work space.

    I think this cottage is a lovely mix of old and contemporary and is truly like a tardis inside. Must be seen to be believed!
