A charming three bedroom Grade II Listed detached cottage located along a quiet lane within the conservation area of this picturesque village, set in gardens and grounds of approximately one fifth of an acre. Sympathetically extended in the early 2,000’s this 17th Century cottage dates back to the early 1600’s and is constructed of stone beneath a part thatched and part slate roof. Internally, the property provides beautifully presented accommodation arranged on two floors combining many period features which include ceiling beams, latched doors, an inglenook fireplace, leaded light wooden and metal framed windows. Such is the charm of this pretty cottage, it once featured on the front of a Cadbury biscuit tin.
Upon entering the property the hallway provides access to the sitting room, kitchen/breakfast room and utility room. The dual aspect sitting room features an attractive Inglenook fireplace with a multi-fuel burner incorporating a bread oven and stairs to the first floor. The kitchen/breakfast room is well fitted with a range of base and eye level units complemented by granite worksurfaces and integrated appliances including a Neff double oven, ceramic hob, dishwasher and fridge. A ceramic (limestone effect) tiled floor continues from the kitchen into an impressive Orangery with down lighting, under floor heating and double glazed doors leading to the terrace and gardens. Wooden double glazed windows with wrought iron furniture provide views across the rear garden and the glass roof is fitted with self cleaning glass, a thermostatically controlled fan and electric roof windows. An inner hallway with space for a study desk also gives access to a cloakroom and second staircase leading to the first floor where there is a dual aspect master bedroom with a tiled en-suite shower room fitted with white sanitary ware including a corner shower cubicle and Matki shower enclosure. The staircase from the sitting room provides access to a further two bedrooms, one with fitted wardrobes and a dual aspect with views to the gardens and one with fitted wardrobes and vanity wash hand basin. There is also a family bathroom with bath and shower over, WC and wash hand-basin. Access to a boarded, insulated and lit loft space.
Wroxton is a pretty ironstone village located to the north west of Banbury on the A422 Stratford Road. The village has many period cottages including those which are centred on the village Green and its adjoining duck pond. From the heart of the village a long driveway leads up to Wroxton Abbey, a Jacobean manor house, the grounds of which are open to the public and offers a pleasant walk around the lakes. Within the village there is a fine church, two public houses, the Wroxton House hotel, and a popular primary school. Further facilities can be found in the nearby market town of Banbury including a mainline railway station to London Marylebone and Jct 11 of the M40.
The property is approached via a gravelled driveway (part shared) providing private off road parking area for several vehicles. A boot room to the side of the cottage gives access to the rear.
The delightful south facing rear gardens are on one level, fully enclosed by mature hedgerows and fencing providing privacy and seclusion with an outlook across the village. Principally laid to lawn and complemented by well stocked flowering borders, a raised vegetable bed, a mature oak tree and a pond. A wooden summerhouse is located at the end of the garden (offering potential to be used as an outside office), along with an ‘Alton’ greenhouse and additional storage shed.
