Sunnybank is a delightful, detached four bedroom thatched Grade II Listed cottage, dating back to Tudor times. It has been thoughtfully extended and stylishly renovated throughout whilst retaining much charm and character including beamed ceilings, wooden floors and thumb latch doors.
The property comprises an entrance hall leading into a spacious dining room which in turn leads into a delightful sitting room with inglenook fireplace overlooking the rear garden; there is a pine thumb latch door which leads to the main staircase to the first floor. In addition there is also a separate snug with inglenook fireplace and a secondary staircase to the first floor. At the rear of the ground floor and of particular note is the recently extended light and airy open plan fitted kitchen with its vaulted ceiling, kitchen island and Aga cooker. There are French windows opening out onto the rear patio and garden. There is also a useful utility room and separate cloakroom.
On the first floor there are four bedrooms, the larger two with fitted cupboards. There are two further bedrooms and a family bathroom with claw foot bath and separate shower.
Within the village itself there is a church, pub and numerous footpaths and bridleways to enjoy the surrounding countryside and stunning landscape of the Ridgeway. It is well located for access to Wantage, Oxford, Swindon and Newbury, to the A34 and to junctions 13, 14 and 15 of the M4. The M40 is accessed via the A420 and the A34. Didcot Parkway station, approximately 9 miles, has frequent trains to London, Oxford and Swindon. The city of Oxford is approximately 12 miles away with its wider range of shopping, social and cultural amenities.
The area offers an excellent selection of both state and private schools locally including King Alfred’s in Wantage, the Europa School at Culham and the Abingdon and Oxford schools.
Sunnybank sits in a central position in this sought after village and is set behind a front hedge which affords the property a good degree of privacy.
Externally there is a delightful enclosed garden with mature shrubs and apple trees along with a Damson tree too and a wooden shed. The patio together with an outdoor cooking and eating area is perfect for entertaining with a large area of lawn. There is an oak framed double carport with stairs to an office above and a gravelled drive with parking and electric gates to the front of the property.
