    About this property

    • The cottage is set in a peaceful and charming location in the quiet hamlet of Cleveley. In 2009 the property was extended, creating a contemporary oak-framed bespoke kitchen/family room with oil-fired Aga, underfloor heating and handmade units. This room enjoys plenty of natural light and views over the garden and the neighbouring countryside. French doors provide immediate access out into the garden.

      Two further reception rooms both with parquet floors can be found on the ground floor. The larger of the two rooms has an inglenook open fireplace and exposed beams adding to the character. Views over the garden allow for plenty of natural light. The dining room has a log burning stove. An extremely useful utility room and w.c/boot room complete the ground floor accommodation.

      On the first floor there are three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Each of these rooms have views across the garden and rolling countryside.

      The south facing garden enjoys views over the Glyme Valley. Mainly laid to lawn with well-stocked borders and bordered by woodland, this secluded and private garden is a peaceful escape. Within the gardens there is also a timber summerhouse with lighting and power.

      There is a substantial car port/garage which provides an additional 500 sqft of space. There is an open car port and also a secure garage for storage. Off-road parking can be found to the front of the car port.

      Beyond the garden is a copse, kitchen garden and small riverside paddock owned by the Ditchley Park Estate which can be rented under an annual licence.
