Pretty family house in this wonderful village atop the Stonor valley


Flint Cottage is superbly situated in Russells Water in an elevated setting with a westerly aspect across open countryside. It is an area renowned for excellent riding and walking. Maidensgrove Common is nearby, and The Five Horseshoes at Maidensgrove is a good pub/restaurant. Local towns include Henley-on-Thames and Watlington, both with excellent daily amenities, and Henley-on-Thames having access to main line trains (via Twyford) to London Paddington. The M40 (J5, J6) is within 7 miles providing good access to Oxford, London and the national motorway network. There is a range of very good schools across south Oxfordshire and into Berkshire, including Rupert House Preparatory School in Henley, Moulsford School for Boys and Cranford House for Girls at Moulsford, with excellent access to Abingdon and Oxford via local bus services (Oxford tube bus service between London and Oxford at Luton at J6), as well as The Oratory at Pangbourne and Bradfield Schools.


Flint Cottage is a very handsome family house of brick and flint construction under a clay tiled roof. The property has been extended over the years and now offers practical and charming family accommodation of about 3,540 sq ft in the main house, plus the garage and the external room and flat. There are delightful open fireplaces with attractive surrounds in both the dining room and drawing room. The dining room benefits from a bay window overlooking the garden, and French doors opening to the terrace. Upstairs offers a master bedroom with an en suite bathroom, a further four bedrooms, two of which are en suite, and a family bathroom. Our clients have had the house for 30 years, in which time it has been proudly kept and cherished, but would benefit from some updating.

The drive approach arrives at a large parking area to the east/front of Flint Cottage, with the garage block and integral flat to the left. To one side, an area of lawn with an orchard and hedging run along side the village lane. The principal garden lies to the rear and starts with a wonderful terrace accessed via double doors from the dining room and drawing room and a glazed door from the reception hall. Facing south-west, this is a wonderfully sunny terrace, giving way to lawn interspersed with beautiful topiaried hedging and shrubbery. Mature and varied herbaceous borders and lavender borders provide great colour and variety to the rear garden, again well screened on either side from its neighbours and encouraging you to look west towards the paddock and the view. The second larger paddock is accessed via a gate off an adjoining bridleway.

Square Footage: 4,236 sq ft
Acreage: 2.4 Acres

Proceed gently uphill through the trees and on to Maidensgrove Common, and pass The Five Horseshoes pub on your left at the end of the common. Proceed for approximately another ½ mile, and Flint Cottage will be found on the left adjacent to the Village Green on the right.
