Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 5
A charming period stone built family house, occupying a peaceful situation with wonderful views within the popular village of Shipton-under-Wychwood.

A wonderful opportunity to purchase a four/five bedroom detached family home, tucked away in a quiet location off Chapel Lane in Shipton-under- Wychwood. Formally a shepherd's cottage, this house has been sympathetically extended and refurbished over the years, sensitive to the many character features befitting its age. Internally this house is presented in excellent condition, with all the finishes for modern day lifestyle living.

There are views from most of the principal rooms in the house and the generous family accommodation includes on the ground floor; a dining room, comfortable sitting room with traditional fireplace and wood burner, a useful study, large modern fully fitted kitchen/breakfast room with island worktop and double doors leading to one of the courtyard garden areas, plus a separate utility room and two downstairs WC's. On the first floor is a wonderful triple aspect, master bedroom suite, two further double bedrooms, a good size single bedroom, an open landing space that could potentially be another bedroom/second study area and a family bathroom. It is worth noting that there is access to a very large attic space for storage or possible conversion to extra accommodation, subject to the necessary planning consents.

Entry to this impressive house is via Chapel Lane, over a private gravel drive, up to the attractive character frontage with ample parking for several cars and the attached double garage. The raised garden area to the side of the property is well maintained, mostly laid to lawn with various apple trees, cultivated beds/borders and has the additional feature of a raised terrace, that takes full advantage of the neighbouring countryside views. At the rear there is an additional garden area and courtyard garden, both of which are predominately laid to shingle with mature flower borders, all privately enclosed within a Cotswold stone wall border.

Shipton-under-Wychwood is a delightful Cotswold village, nestling in the Evenlode Valley, on the Oxfordshire Cotswold borders. It is surrounded by beautiful countryside and has three historic Inns, a fine Parish Church, GP surgery, primary school, Post Office, general stores and local railway station. The nearby village of Milton-under-Wychwood also offers a range of local facilities, including a hairdressers and small supermarket.
