Situation - Chipping Norton, "gateway to the Cotswolds" lies approximately 21 miles to the north west of Oxford. It is a charming bustling market town with a number of cafs, bars, restaurants, "foodie" pubs. There is comprehensive shopping, schooling for all ages, a Victorian theatre, leisure centre, sports and social clubs.

The Property - West Lodge forms part of Bliss Mill which is a former Victorian tweed mill which converted into a number of apartments and a few cottages tucked away at the rear. It is a magnificent Grade II Listed Cotswold stone property with its distinctive 165' chimney and many original features which have been retained in the main building. It is set in a secure well managed environment standing in delightful grounds extending to approximately 6.5 acres adjoining miles of open countryside and is in AN AREA OF OUTSTANDING NATURAL BEAUTY. The property is a mews style Listed Grade II house which has been completely refurbished and includes spacious accommodation on three floors complemented by modern luxury fittings. Unlike any other property in this development there is direct access from the kitchen/dining room to a private walled courtyard garden with stunning views of the clock tower and chimney whilst from the sitting room there is direct access to a larger water side terrace and garden with outlooks over the adjoining weir and mini lake. Whilst it would be a wonderful place to live on a full time basis it also represents an ideally "lock up and leave" opportunity for those with properties elsewhere. In addition to the lovely gardens, weir and mini lake there are first class communal facilities including a private leisure complex. There is a swimming pool, recently updated gym, squash and tennis court and allocated parking in the old weaving shed and additional external communal parking for residents and visitors alike.
