Property description

Kath's Cottage is a truly delightful end of terrace Cotswold stone cottage that has been the subject of an extensive programme of refurbishment and with a wealth of character features the property is a wonderful blend of rustic charm and modern convenience. Set in the picturesque Oxfordshire village of Shipton-under-Wychwood, in the Evenlode valley on the Oxfordshire/Cotswold borders, the property is surrounded by countryside of outstanding beauty. With an abundance of walks and country pursuits on your doorstep, and set in a prime position overlooking the church and village green, the property provides the quintessential English village life.

While local amenities are close at hand with shops and acclaimed local eateries, the highly regarded market town of Burford is just over four miles away and both Charlbury and Kingham Stations (mainline to London Paddington) are each approximately 5 miles away and there are excellent road communications with London via the A40/M40 at Burford. In our opinion this beautifully presented property would now make the perfect country home, weekend retreat or sound rental investment.
Entering through the main front entrance door to a welcoming entrance lobby with fitted coir matting, perfect for muddy boots and wet dogs, there are wood ledged doors with thumb latch handles leading to the kitchen and sitting room, while the stairway to the first floor is directly in front. To the left is the spacious sitting room which in the summer is both light and bright due to the dual aspect windows yet in the winter is cosy and snug due to the fitted Chesnys log burner. Sat on the window seat in summer overlooking the village green it is the perfect place to read or watch the world go by, while with a mug of hot chocolate or glass of red wine it is the perfect retreat on dark winter nights.

To the right of the entrance lobby is a well-proportioned kitchen/breakfast with space for a breakfast/dining table, a range of units with enough butchers block work surface for any budding Heston Blumenthal and a tall larder cupboard and a large under stairs cupboard offering excellent storage. Add integrated Bosch appliances and this kitchen becomes the perfect place for long, lazy, Sunday roasts or intimate kitchen suppers. From the kitchen a further wood ledged door with thumb latch leads to the inner lobby which gives access to the shower room and rear entrance door. The ground floor shower room is the perfect addition for any country property and with the added benefit of a WC it is extremely practical.

The stairway leads to the first floor where you find, off the split-level landing, three good-sized bedrooms, all of which are both light and bright. There is useful additional storage in the smallest bedroom and all-important airing cupboard. The family bathroom completes the accommodation and with a white suite has a clean and modern feel.
