The Property - This detached family house has great scope for extension and was built in 1956 of brick under a tiled roof. The house was re-roofed in 2007 and hardwood double glazed windows were added some 8 years ago. The house was extended in 2008, and at that time a conservatory was added. The oil tank has been replaced.The house still retains its features of that period with the original parquet flooring. A wrens kitchen was fitted some 4 years ago. There is great scope for extension which would add considerable value to this fine family house which is now in one of the most popular south Oxfordshire villages.
