Woodgreen Cottage is situated in a lovely position overlooking Woodgreen and close to Witney town centre. Witney is an attractive market town offering first class shopping (including Waitrose, M&S and Sainsbury), educational and recreational facilities. There are local bus services to Oxford and surrounding villages and the main line railway station at nearby Charlbury provides a regular service to London, Paddington in approximately 1 hour and 12 minutes. Oxford is easily reached via the A40, as is junction 8 (for London and Birmingham) of the M40. Oxford and London can also be reached from Long Hanborough Station (4 miles).
Woodgreen Cottage is an elegant Grade II listed house enjoying a lovely outlook over Woodgreen with its surrounding elegant period houses. Originally a farmhouse believed to date from the early 18th century with later alterations, the property has been completely and sympathetically renovated over recent years by the present owners, carefully retaining the character and period features throughout. Features include spacious rooms with high ceilings, sash windows with working shutters and window seats, panelling in the drawing room and, providing a particularly attractive entrance to the house, a 6 panelled door with early 19th century fanlight set in moulded architrave. The property is complemented by a beautiful mature and well-stocked garden, garaging and private yard providing extensive parking space.
Predominantly arranged over two floors with two attic bedrooms and bathroom in addition, the house provides spacious and flexible accommodation. The ground floor accommodation comprises two principal reception rooms, a study, cloakroom/laundry room and a kitchen/breakfast room with pantry. The drawing room is a particularly attractive and light room with panelling to the walls, a window seat and recessed shelving set either side of the attractive fireplace. The dining room is another elegant room with window seat and arched recessed cupboards and shelves set either side of the fireplace. The welcoming kitchen/breakfast room, with flagstone flooring, enjoys a lovely outlook over the pretty garden and is fitted with a range of painted wooden units, a window seat and French doors to the garden. The study and laundry/cloakroom also overlook the rear garden. Arranged on the half landing are a further study (with the possibility of being converted to an en-suite), together with a laundry cupboard and family bathroom. On the first floor, all enjoying an outlook over Woodgreen, are three of the charming bedrooms including the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom. A large second floor landing leads to the two remaining bedrooms, both with exposed beams, one with full en-suite and the other with washing facilities.
To the front of the house is an enclosed garden with central path leading to the front door. Arranged at the rear of the house and providing a particularly attractive setting, the main walled garden has been beautifully landscaped with areas of lawn, terracing, well-stocked borders, trees and shrubs. A pathway from the house leads to a gate within the garden wall giving access to the garages, one of which was the original coach house with hayloft and cobbled floor. The garages and large gravelled gated yard are approached from New Yatt Road. Within the garden is a period outbuilding providing storage.
