Marigold Cottage is set in a rather special position, with much to offer. Having undergone an extensive programme of works, to both the house and gardens, this elegant home has been created. Arriving at the cottage there is ample parking in front of a two storey garage/workshop with stores beneath. A path leads to the rear of the cottage and is flanked on either side by landscaped gardens and a sunken dell and there are glimpses of the extensive gardens that lie beyond. Arriving onto a raised area of decking, entry to the house is made. The well-appointed kitchen incorporates a range of utility facilities and a conveniently located cloakroom. The sitting room is full of natural light with views through French doors leading towards the raised ornamental koi carp pond. There is also a home office/study and a more formal dining room incorporating a bespoke oak staircase. There are two double bedrooms enjoying delightful countryside views and a third bedroom currently in use as a home studio. The master bedroom has a walk in wardrobe with double aspect views over the side and rear gardens.
Situated in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Marigold Cottage is approximately 2 miles from Watlington, which offers a variety of independent shops, a Co-op store, butchers, post office, health centre, vets and an excellent Primary and Secondary School. The larger centres of Henley, Oxford and High Wycombe provide extensive recreational, educational and shopping facilities. There is a mainline train service from High Wycombe to London Marylebone (from approx. 25 minutes) and access to the M40 is by J5 or J6 which is just a ten minute drive from Howe Hill. Also at Lewknor is the pick-up point for the London - Oxford Tube, a 24 hours a day bus service that runs directly into central London.
The gardens of Marigold have been designed and created by the current owners and extend to approximately 0.6 acres. Within the garden is an oak framed pergola covered by climbing roses, wisteria, clematis and honeysuckle. There is also a kitchen garden with raised beds, a garden store and greenhouse and is bounded by mature box hedging, this provides a productive source of seasonal culinary produce and cut flowers. From the rear of the house there is a decked terrace providing an ideal platform to soak up the surroundings. There is parking in front of the two storey double garage which has excellent store rooms beneath. It should be noted that there is additional garden that can be bought by separate negotiation.
The rear garden of Marigold Cottage has been subdivided by the current owners. The plot might have potential as a building plot but will be subject to usual planning permissions being attained. The cottage retains the many individual characteristics that make it an outstanding rural property. Marigold Cottage has private drainage, oil fired central heating and a Morso log burning stove to supplement the Rayburn featured in the kitchen alongside electrical appliances.
