An impressive village house tucked away in mature, southerly facing gardens


Chesterton is an attractive village comprising a blend of modern and period houses and cottages situated about 2.5 miles south of Bicester and 10 miles northeast of Oxford. Within the village is

Association's Cricket and Mini Rugby Clubs, and a village junior football club and cricket club. Polo is played at nearby Kirtlington Park. Bicester provides a full range of shopping, educational and
sporting facilities as well as the popular Retail Outlet Village. There is further extensive schooling in Oxford, Banbury and the surrounding area. Chesterton is well placed for communications, with access to junction 9 of the M40, A34, A41 and mainline rail services to London and Birmingham from Oxford and Bicester.


Tucked away in a lane in mature southerly facing gardens providing a good degree of privacy, The Laurels is an impressive and generously proportioned family house of around 4784 sq ft arranged over three floors. Dating originally from the 1760s and significantly extended over the years, the property has been extensively extended, remodelled and updated and now provides excellent and flexible family and living space of character throughout. On the ground floor, the reception hall with limestone flooring leads to the large welcoming drawing room with windows overlooking the gardens, and French doors opening to the conservatory. The striking barn style kitchen/breakfast room has a vaulted ceiling, limestone flooring and, with large windows and double doors opening to the garden, makes it ideal for entertaining and family gatherings. To the front of the house is a dining room for formal entertaining, and there is also a study with windows to front and rear. On the first floor are three double bedrooms, one with a large en suite bathroom with bath and shower, together with an additional shower room. On the second floor are three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom with bath and shower.

The well stocked, mature, southerly facing gardens are a particularly attractive feature of the property. A paved patio immediately to the rear leads to the gardens which are laid to lawn and interspersed with a wide and interesting variety of flowers, shrubs and trees, including acers, hornbeams and some productive apple trees. A driveway at the side leads rounds to large double timbers gates which open to the parking area and lead to the double garage.
