SITUATION Otters Court is an a well thought of residential area just north of the town centre. It is well placed for the A40 (access to Oxford & Cheltenham) as well as local amenities that include shops and playing fields. Witney itself is a thriving market town on the edge of the Cotswolds about 10 miles to the West of the dreaming spires of Oxford. Its location on the banks of the River Windrush led to the manufacture of high quality blankets known the world over until the last mill was closed in 2002. Some manufacturing remains and the town is home to Christy & Co - hat makers since 1773 to people as diverse as the Royal family to Don Corleone in the Godfather films! Much of the town's fine architecture reflects the wealth of the woollen trade in its heyday. The rich variety of shops, street cafes, and excellent sporting facilities coupled with higher order services that include a hospital greatly add to the quality of life. Little wonder then that the town was selected by The Sunday Times newspaper (March 2014) as one of the best places to live in Britain!
The recently refurbished Abingdon and Witney College offers a range of tertiary courses for adults.
THE PROPERTY PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY COMMISSIONED. This exceptional ground floor apartment was bought new by the present owner and will appeal to those who enjoy an active retirement but appreciate the reassurance of a 24 hour security system and a dedicated House Manager. The property has the distinction of being the largest apartment type in this development and the only one with a window in its bathroom! The elegantly proportioned entrance hall hints at the spaciousness of the apartment and gives access to a commodious walk-in storage cupboard with fitted shelves and electric light, complemented by separate airing cupboard providing further storage. Many of the rooms have a distinctive shape, greatly enhancing the appeal of this home and providing a distinct dining area to one end of the reception room. The kitchen is appointed with a range of matching for wall cabinets with integrated electric hob, oven, dishwasher and refrigerator. There is a single drainer stainless steel sink in set into rolltop working surfaces and a stainless steel cooker hood above the hob.
Both bedrooms are comfortable doubles with one easily being used as a separate dining room if desired. The master bedroom has mirror fronted fitted wardrobes. In addition to having access to the world tenders communal gardens, this apartment has a private terrace accessed via French windows on the reception room.
The high EPC rating reflects the efficiency of the modern electric heating and sealed unit double glazing throughout. There are quality floor coverings throughout and all of the rooms (apart from the kitchen) feature coved ceilings.
Residents of Otters Court have access to a guest suite, onsite parking on a first-come, first served basis (with thoughtful touches like buggy recharging points), security entry system, intruder alarm, and laundry room. The residents' function room provides a focal point to a thriving and friendly social community with well attended activities. There is also a lift service to all floors. Residents need to be 60+ or if a couple, one resident needs to be at least 60 and the other 55+ years old.
TENURE Leasehold. We believe the property has the benefit of the remainder of a 125 year lease granted 1 July 2008 and are seeking to establish the current ground rent and maintenance charges.
