Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Elsfield is a small village high on the Elsfield Ridge with a fine village church and several attractive period properties.

Manor Cottage was formerly part of the Elsfield Manor estate, which is reputed to have been the site for Oliver Cromwell’s artillery park. Elsfield is only one mile from the Oxford ring-road, which provides direct access to the A40 and the M40 beyond. It is also within easy reach of the city centre and the John Radcliffe hospital.

Manor Cottage is an attractive Grade II Listed stone built property, set back from the road by a small garden. It has been in the same ownership for some time and is now in need of re-thatching and total renovation. The sitting room and the kitchen/breakfast room both have working fireplaces and wood block flooring has been fitted to the three main rooms on the ground floor.

The typical ‘cottage’ bedrooms have dormer windows to both front and rear aspects, with bedroom one being accessed via a concealed staircase from the sitting room. There are two bathrooms, both at ground floor level, and an outside store which houses the oil fired boiler and an external WC. There is scope to extend the cottage to the rear, subject to planning permission. The drainage is currently to a defective shared private system.

Outside
The cottage is set back from the road by a small garden, with a path and steps leading down to a seating area and the Oak front door. The rear garden is accessed via a glazed door at the rear of the house. It is the width of the property and approximately 40 ft deep. Within the garden is a stone built wood store and several mature trees.

Please note that, since publishing this brochure, it has come to our attention that the property is Grade II Listed
