A handsome detached Victorian house extended and improved in recent years with a range of out buildings, including double garage, home office and garden workshop, as well as outdoor pool and gardens. In all about 1 acre.
Windrush Cottage is a handsome detached Victorian property dating back to the 1830’s. The property has been thoughtfully improved and extended over time with much of the renovation work being carried out in recent years. The house is beautifully presented and has been transformed by the current owners into a welcoming family home.
The versatile accommodation is arranged over two floors. On the ground floor there are two suitably sized reception rooms, both with attractive fireplaces; an additional room is currently utilised as a study. The stunning open plan kitchen diner can be found to the rear; beautifully appointed with two sets of triple bi-fold doors leading onto the patio and private garden beyond. This spacious light filled room benefits from extensive hand built units with integrated appliances under a granite work-surface. There’s a large impressive central island housing base units, an induction hob and double electric oven; in addition is a fully refurbished electric Aga. A utility room and two cloakrooms complete the ground floor accommodation.
The stairs rise from the elegant hallway to the first floor landing with doors leading to four of the double bedrooms, two of which benefit from en suite Jack and Jill bathrooms. The fifth bedroom and a third bathroom can be accessed via a second staircase giving potential to provide separate annexe accommodation if required.
The private garden extends to approximately an acre and is enclosed by mature hedging and timber fencing. Although predominantly laid to lawn the garden is pleasantly zoned to include patio area, a generous vegetable plot with fruit trees, fenced outdoor pool, and secluded composting area. Outbuildings include a double garage, useful large workshop/chicken shed and additional brick built building next to the main house which has potential for conversion subject to the necessary consent.
The property is on the edge of the Oxfordshire village of Southmoor. Approximately 6 miles west of Abingdon. The village is situated to the south of the A420 between Oxford and Swindon. The village itself has many amenities, including shops, sporting and drama clubs and Longworth Primary School and is conveniently located for both St Hugh's and Abingdon School. The village is also serviced by bus services to Oxford or Swindon running every 30 minutes daily and hourly on Sundays. Buses also run to Abingdon and Witney Monday to Friday making this a suitable location for commuting to Oxford for work or pleasure.
