Edge of Cotswold village with far reaching views over Cornbury Park Estate.
Situated in the conservation area of the village, Lower End Farmhouse is the main property in a courtyard setting. Constructed of stone below a Stonesfield slate roof, the property is believed to have origins dating to the 17th century and it is not listed. Having evolved over time, the property is attached and now orientated with a new wing which maximises the enjoyment of the open views over Cornbury Park Estate.
Completely renovated by the current owners when they purchased in 1979, and since further extended in 1999, the property extends to over 4000 sq.ft of accommodation lending itself to both family life and entertaining. With huge character, retaining many period features, thought has gone into modern comforts such as underfloor heating throughout the ground floor and ensuite bathrooms.
A reception hall nicely connects the period building to the newer extension. Reception rooms include the sitting room, with French doors to the garden and fireplace with wood burner, and a dining room/library with flagstone floor and inglenook fireplace. There is a rear entrance hall which give access to the cellar and also has steps to a ground floor bedroom, with scope for other uses depending on needs.
The heart of the home is the open plan kitchen/dining room which, with high ceilings, exposed timbers and triple aspect, enjoys the views. With a range of work units there is a gas fired AGA and appliances include a gas hob and microwave. There are French doors from the dining area out to the terrace and garden beyond. Also in the extension is a home office with WC/shower room, which could alternatively be used as a bedroom as needed.
On the first floor the principal bedroom, enjoying lovely views, has a dressing area and ensuite bathroom. There are 2 more double bedrooms on the first floor and 2 bathrooms and a further 2 bedrooms and bathroom on the second floor.
