An impressive Grade II Listed detached property situated in a quiet lane close the outskirts of the village. Constructed of stone beneath a thatched roof, this beautifully presented cottage has been sympathetically restored and updated combining a wealth of period features with all the convenience of modern family living. Period features include impressive Inglenook fireplaces, exposed beams, window seats and wooden internal doors. With approximately 1,940 square feet of accommodation, the property is deceptively spacious. On the ground floor the entrance hallway, which is a later addition to the cottage, gives access to a cloakroom and to the impressive sitting room featuring an Inglenook fireplace and a wood burning stove, wooden windows and exposed beams. This room leads onto a snug which could be used as a study/office. The dining room also features an Inglenook fireplace and leads to a refitted kitchen with Shaker style units, a Range cooker and central island. On the first floor there are three well- proportioned double bedrooms; one boasting en suite facilities. A further versatile landing space/area could be used as an occasional fourth bedroom. Each of the bedrooms provide views across the garden and the refitted family bathroom has a roll top bath, a separate shower enclosure and vanity sink. A second staircase takes you back down to the sitting room.
Upper Boddington is located north of Banbury. Within the village there is a public house, a post office facility (twice weekly), village hall which hosts many clubs, societies, film nights, exercise classes for community, school, public playing field and church.

The rear gardens are south facing, principally laid to lawn and are complemented by well stocked flowering and shrub borders. There are two large useful garden rooms, ideal for use as a home office or outdoor entertaining space. An old water pump acts as a centre piece for the water feature which is adjacent to a raised decked terrace area and there is a further paved patio, timber potting shed/storage area and access to the side of the property where there is a detached double garage and driveway. In all, 0.25 of an acre.
