    About this property

    • Situated in this charming hamlet, close to the Oxford Canal and the River Cherwell to the north of Kidlington, the property offers country living within easy reach of Oxford.
      The property was originally an early 17th century watermill and miller's cottage that over time was converted into a terrace of three cottages. Recently upgraded and converted to provide two cottages (No. 1 and No. 2/3) there is scope to be occupied as a single dwelling, subject to the appropriate planning consents.
      Listed Grade II, there is considerable detail including exposed beams and brickwork, fireplaces with log burning stoves, window seats and slate floors. The very flexible accommodation provides over 3,700 sq ft of living space with plenty of rooms for family living, home working and entertaining. The main cottage has four reception rooms and a character kitchen with Aga and Belfast sink. On the first floor is a further sitting area, two bedrooms and bathrooms with separate staircases leading to two attic rooms. No.1, which has been let in recent years, has a comfortable sitting room with parquet flooring and shuttered windows and a large kitchen/dining room and bathroom to the rear. On the first floor are two bedrooms and a second bathroom.
      Both cottages have gardens to the front and rear each with side accesses. Cottage 2/3 also has an extremely useful range of six outbuildings ideal for home office, hobbies, storage and utility room. There are also allotments available nearby.
