    About this property

    • Situated in a conservation area, on a private lane in the heart of Charlbury, Chantry Cottage is a truly unique, comfortable and versatile home. With origins believed to date to the 1800s and not listed, the attached property was extended and designed by local architects McCormick & Smith in 2007 in collaboration with the current owners, and inspired by their travels. Glazed areas, combine with natural stone, reclaimed French Oak timbers and stone gargoyles. Attention to detail includes copper gutters, smooth leather door handles, designer radiators and underfloor heating to the ground floor.

      The stunning entrance hall is bright with stone staircase and a water feature. The kitchen-dining area has bifold doors opening to a walled courtyard, literally brining the outside in. Appliances include gas Aga, inbuilt fridge and freezer. A rear kitchen/utility room has useful additional Miele appliances. There are two sitting rooms, one with wood burning stove opens to a second, private courtyard and another is cosy with open fireplace. Also, on the ground floor there is a shower room. On the first floor, the principal bedroom with vaulted ceiling and curved walls is itself a design to behold. There is an en suite shower room (see agents note) and separate WC. Also on the first floor are two further bedrooms, one currently fitted out as a dressing room, and a bathroom. Accessed via a private courtyard is the annexe in a converted barn. Steps lead down to a sitting area, with galley kitchen, and glazed doors open to another private courtyard. On the first floor there is a double bedroom and shower room. As alluded to above, there are three delightful walled courtyard spaces. All have water features and outside lighting. There are timber garden stores and a log store. To the front of the property are two parking spaces, one with electric car charging point.

    In the heart of Charlbury yet on a peaceful side lane, this home is certainly very special, its daring in style, but homely at the same time. Must be seen!
