There is a choice of ways you can enter the cottage; the owners use the stable door into the kitchen from the courtyard, or alternatively there is another door at the front of the cottage into the sitting room, or French doors into the conservatory.
The charming farm house country kitchen has attractive modern units with wooden worktops, an Aga, ‘butler’ sink, exposed brickwork and beams to one wall and exposed wooden flooring. From here you step down into the family room with an exposed wooden floor, stairs to the guest or master bedroom suite and, as in the kitchen the same characterful exposed brickwork and beams to one wall.
The cottage continues into a conservatory link with French doors and sidelights onto the courtyard with a quarry tiled floor. From here you continue into the very comfortable and cosy sitting room, with a fabulous inglenook fireplace and a wood burning stove as the focal point, and original cupboards to the recesses. There are doors to both hallways and beams to the ceiling and wall. The hallway has a chequerboard floor and leads to the stylish study with painted floor boards, corner display cupboard and a fitted book shelving. At the far end of the hallway is the utility room with an impressive exposed corbelled brick chimney, wall and base units with a tiled work top and a ‘butler’ sink, and a door into the cloakroom which has a W.C and a door out onto the courtyard.
From the inner hall are the modern family shower room which has been recently re fitted and has ample storage, and stairs to the first floor.
Upstairs are three double bedrooms off of one staircase, and a further separate bedroom suite with its own bathroom off the other. From the landing is a bedroom on your left, up a few steps and there is another bedroom on your right with beams in the wall and a concealed wardrobe. At the far end of the landing is a delightful tranquil bedroom which is double aspect with a fitted wardrobe.
The separate bedroom is ideal for either a guest suite or as a master bedroom if you want some peace and quiet from the family, and has its own landing and separate bathroom, and has a vaulted ceiling and beams in the bedroom.
Long Wittenham is a delightful Thameside village served by two public houses (The Plough and The Vine and Spice), Long Wittenham CE Primary School and the 13th Century Parish Church of St Mary, together with the renowned miniature Pendon museum. The neighbouring village of Clifton Hampden has a village shop and the nearby towns of Didcot, Wallingford and Abingdon are all easily accessible and provide a more extensive range of shops, supermarkets and sports facilities.
Communication links are also excellent, with Didcot Parkway rail station about four miles away, providing a fast service into London Paddington in approximately 45 minutes. The A34 leads to the M4 to the south and M40 to the north, as well as the national motorway network. Schooling is also very well served in the area with excellent independent schools including Moulsford Prep, Cranford House, The Manor Prep, St Helen and St Katharine, Chandlings, Cothill, Abingdon Prep, Abingdon School and Radley College, as well as the highly regarded schools in Oxford also nearby.
Outside the accommodation continues with a detached barn that has planning permission P16/S2607-FUL to convert into a fabolous new four bedroom detached house. A workroom and long barn which extends to 57.5 ft are attached to the cottage both of which are extremely flexible and interesting, and offer wonderful scope for conversion into whatever you might need, obviously subject to gaining the relevant permissions and approvals and your own investigations.
Outside the cottage is approached though a five bar gate into a gravelled courtyard and parking area. To your left are lawns that continue along the side of the driveway, and are screened by a mature hedge culminating in the formal lawned garden at the front.
