About this property

  • Located in the sought-after West Oxfordshire village of Ascott-under-Wychwood is Hill Cottage, a well presented semi-detached, 18th century property which has been sympathetically refurbished throughout by the current owners whilst retaining its period features and charm.

    The ground floor comprises an entrance hall with cloakroom. There is a very generous and elegant sitting room with exposed beams and window seats. Within the fireplace is a wood burning stove and bread oven. The dining room leads to a charming conservatory with views over the well-stocked garden with summerhouse (with electricity).

    The recently refitted kitchen has an Aga electric range cooker and a good range of cabinets.

    Upstairs is a principal bedroom with a good sized dressing room that could be converted to a third bedroom. Bedroom two has fitted wardrobes. Completing the first floor accommodation is a well-equipped family bathroom.
    At the rear of the property is a lovely courtyard garden with a small 18th century Bothy. There is off road parking for two vehicles.
