The property enjoys an elevated position, overlooking rural countryside to the east of Oxford. The property is located on Old Road, between Wheatley and Shotover, with easy access to local amenities within Wheatley village. Shotover Country Park and House are close to the property, providing stunning walks within the locality. The village also has highly regarded primary and secondary schools. Wheatley is situated within easy reach of Oxford City Centre and the M40 (Junction 8), thereby providing access to the cultural amenities of Oxford itself along with excellent transport networks to London and the Midlands.

The house may benefit from some updating and has the potential to extend subject to the necessary consents.

The house is entered by way of an open plan hall and dining area which naturally leads into a sitting room. The space is particularly light due to the large, open aspect windows to the front and rear. The room forms an L-shape and a wood burner with soap stone surround forms the focal point of the room. The large window overlooks the stunning garden and rolling countryside beyond, with views across to the Wheatley windmill.

The John Lewis fitted kitchen is beyond the sitting room and comprises wall mounted and base units. A halogen hob is set into the work surface and eye level ovens set into the units. The kitchen has ample cupboard space including a pantry cupboard. A door leads from the kitchen into a useful utility area with cloakroom and door into the integral garage.

The family room on the ground floor which could also be used as a bedroom, has glazed sliding doors opening on to the patio to the rear. The guest bedroom is located to the front of the house and next to the family bathroom which is decorated in a lilac palette with three piece bathroom suite with shower above the bath.

The first floor comprises a master suite with double bedroom, bathroom with shower, WC and sink and dressing area. The suite is accessed through a further room which could easily be partitioned off to make a further bedroom. The double bedroom immediately at the top of the stairs has a vanity unit and window overlooking the rear garden.

The drive rises up to the house with a grass bank to the right which, at the time of writing has various wild flowers in bloom. There is a car port and covered walk way to the front door and generous parking area immediately in front of the house.

The rear garden is predominantly laid to lawn with various shrubs, a large horse chestnut and decorative trees, providing colour and balance to the immediate outlook. A patio surrounding the property to the rear provides an excellent location for al fresco dining.
