    About this property

    • The Cottage is a substantial Grade II listed property that has been significantly and sensitively improved by the current vendor. The unique opportunity has arisen for a purchaser to complete the transformation of the impressive property to a six bedroom family home. Set in about 0.6 acres of private grounds and with traditional outbuildings the property offers huge potential.

      Substantial works have already been undertaken, including extension, refurbishment of several rooms, plumbing and rewiring work.

      The spacious kitchen / breakfast room is dual aspect with lovely views of the garden and features an oil fired Aga, base and wall units and feature floor understood to originate from North Africa. A charming sitting room has been transformed with a stone inglenook fireplace with wood-burning stove, window seat and wooden parquet floor. A wonderfully spacious, dual aspect drawing room and hallway would benefit from refurbishment to return them to their former glory. Work has been undertaken to provide a light rear porch extension with in-built storage, a study, utility room and re-fitted cloakroom.

      On the first floor an Elm floorboard landing leads to a generous principal bedroom with dressing area, walk-in wardrobe and recently re-fitted spacious en suite shower room. There are two further double bedrooms, one with a vaulted ceiling, mezzanine balcony area and views over the garden. A recent extension provides a shower room and lovely seating area, with exposed stone walls and a full length glazed wall with views on to the garden. There is a further light and spacious, triple aspect bedroom with feature fireplace, which requires refurbishment, but could be a wonderful room with a door into what could be a spacious en suite bathroom.

      The top floor has been partially re-insulated and offers the opportunity for a two further spacious double bedrooms with en suites.

      Set behind a private gated entrance is off road parking for several cars set as well as a range of stone outbuildings with potential for a variety of alternative uses, subject to planning permission. Currently the outbuildings comprise two garages, two stables and stores.

      The gardens extend to about 0.6 acres and are set behind a period stone wall along the front boundary. Landscaping of the garden has commenced to provide a terrace at the rear of the property, leading onto a large area of lawn with various mature trees. The early stages of the River Cherwell runs along the eastern boundary.

    I love the space and opportunity that The Cottage offers. The transformation of the property is well underway and I think it will become something very special.
