Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A most unusual and unique family home situated on the very edge of the village lying adjacent to paddocks, and enjoying a large garden.

The property itself has an attractive mix of accommodation over the ground and first floors. The ground floor accommodation comprises a split level arrangement, including a dining room and a family room with wood burning stove and sliding patio doors on to the terrace. Adjacent is a fitted kitchen, beyond which is a useful utility/boot room, housing the boiler and giving access to the rear garden. There are two double bedrooms, a single bedroom and a much larger than average family bathroom also on the ground floor.

On the first floor is a delightful sitting room with large picture windows facing south, with views. This room has a fire place with a fitted gas fire and a study area. Also on this floor is a spacious master bedroom with a modern en suite shower room.

Outside, the property has a gravelled driveway with parking for at least five vehicles, and an attractive landscaped garden which is very private and can be enjoyed from the balcony. To the rear of the property is a useful covered storage area and a greenhouse, which opens out on to the paved terrace, a perfect spot for enjoying a summer's evening drink. The majority of the garden lies to the side of the property and measures 0.7 acre. This includes a large Mediterranean-style pond with seating areas and a small summer house. There is a large expanse of lawn/paddock with a variety of mature deciduous, evergreen and fruiting trees.

The property has an oil-fired heating system to radiators and a dual fuel wood burning stove. Mains water and electricity are connected, with drainage to a private septic tank, which is shared with the adjacent neighbour, but is situated on Oakdene's plot.
 

AMENITIES The small village of Black Bourton lies 14 miles west of Oxford and 5 miles south-west of Witney, on gently rising ground some three miles north of the river Thames. The village retains a markedly rural character.
There is a village school (designed by the architect Sir George Gilbert Scott), a small hotel/restaurant and a parish church, St Mary the Virgin, in which a number of late 13th century wall paintings were discovered and restored during its renovation.
The nearby larger villages of Carterton and Bampton have many amenities, such as doctors' surgeries, supermarkets, shops and galleries.
