Stunning five-bedroom cottage set in one of Oxfordshire's most scenic villages
The origins of this charming cottage may be nineteenth century, but the impressive extension and improvements are very much 21st century. This stunning detached property has been thoughtfully updated to create a contemporary residence that is full of design features and modern conveniences, while being a practical family home. Inside and out it is presented to exacting standards and as a further benefit has beautiful gardens. All around are far-reaching views over the tranquil countryside of the Chiltern Hills and the charming village of Stoke Row.
Highlights of the property include underfloor heating in the kitchen and en suite bathroom, premium tiled floors throughout the main living spaces, exposed beams, solid wood doors and a stunning modern kitchen with roof lights, which flood the space with natural light. The kitchen is well appointed with modern units and also benefits from an AGA and wine fridge.
The property is entered via the original part of the house, into an inviting entrance hall which creates a memorable first impression with its attractive staircase leading up through the house. To one side is a reception room with French windows opening to the garden, while to the other is an impressive L-shaped open plan kitchen/dining/family room which serves as the heart of the home and offers ample space to relax as a family or to entertain friends. Leading off the kitchen is a utility room with access to the garden. There is also a cloakroom on the ground floor.
The bedrooms are situated across the first and second floors, with the impressive principal bedroom on the first floor having a dressing room and en suite shower room. There are a further two double bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor, and two smaller doubles within the loft conversion. A truly stunning home which must be seen to appreciate its plentiful charms.
The property is accessed from Newlands Lane via a sweeping gravel driveway, which provides ample off-street parking and leads to an attractive timber-built car port and garage. Over the garage there is a home office space on the first floor, which could also serve as a children's playroom or storage. The south-facing gardens are arranged mostly to the front of the house, with a good-size level lawn extending to a mature hedge. A patio to the front of the house affords plenty of space for entertaining alfresco, while to the rear there is a small kitchen garden with raised beds for growing vegetables and patio.
