Idyllic cottage in popular north Oxfordshire village, with a great pub and village shop and post office. Large Inglenook fireplace!
Buckinghams Cottage is a stone, Grade II listed property originating from the late 18th century. It is thought to have been built by the same stone mason who built the village pub. Over the years the property has been extended sympathetically using the local Horton stone and stone mullion windows. The property still has many original features including exposed beams and inglenook fireplace.
The accommodation comprises of kitchen/breakfast room with slate floor and built in cupboards, dishwasher, built in fridge and oil fired Aga. Double sink and drainer with views overlooking the rear garden. Cupboard with washing machine. Conveniently located next to the kitchen is the downstairs shower room, recently refurbished, (2018) with Duravit fixtures and fittings, double shower, WC, sink and heated towel rail. Study with slate floor offering plenty of natural light with views overlooking the garden.
Two further reception rooms are the dining room and sitting room with Inglenook fireplace and front entrance.

On the second floor is bedroom two with oak floor boards and views out onto the church and countryside beyond.
There is a tarmac drive with space to park two cars. Stone steps lead up to the south west facing garden which is enclosed by a stone wall and fencing. Much of the garden is laid to lawn with shrub borders and fruit trees including, apple, fig, apricot and plum. Immediately adjacent to the property is a paved area with wooden framed pergola providing shade in the summer and an ideal outside entertaining space. The garden wraps around the front of the house to the front door, whereby there is a path leading out onto the village road. There is a large shed with power and lighting, which could be converted into a home office with the usual planning consents.
