Handsome period house with mature and well stocked, south facing gardens and good communication links.
Formally an old smithy with three cottages, Yew Tree Cottage is now a spacious and well-presented detached home with wonderful gardens, within striking distance of Soho Farmhouse and the Cotswold countryside. The period house is of Cotswold stone construction under a Stonesfield slate roof.
The generous ground floor accommodation includes an impressive dining room with vaulted ceiling and feature fireplace. The south facing sitting room also benefits from a feature fireplace and doors opening into the garden. The kitchen / breakfast room includes a large island unit, 4 door Aga and seating area with window seat in the bay window. There is also a spacious family room, study, utility room with walk-in pantry, WC and wet room. Part of the ground floor could work well as an annex, with its own entrance. In addition there is potential to extend the property, subject to necessary consents.
The first floor comprises a very generous master bedroom with fitted wardrobes and an en suite bathroom, a double bedroom with fitted wardrobes and bathroom. On the second floor are two double bedrooms, one with fitted cupboards, and a shower room. All of the bedrooms are south facing with views over the garden.
The property benefits from a generous and attractive enclosed south facing garden with original well, tall dry stone walls, well stocked beds and borders and mature trees. It is a wonderful space for children and entertaining alike. There is also a potting shed, double garage and ample gated parking.
This delightful family home has been extensively and sympathetically improved by the current owners and provides a great opportunity for versatile living with good communication links to Oxford, London and all the Cotswolds has to offer.

Just minutes from Soho Farmhouse, I think this charming house is a rare find: spacious accommodation, attractive garden, three train stations nearby and access to a range of great schools.Catherine Scandrett
