Upper Heyford is a quiet and secluded village away from the beaten track but within easy reach of amenities and road/ rail links. The community is vibrant and varied with a well-used village hall and green plus a good local pub, plus there is a highly-regarded new free-school less than a mile distant; many villagers also enjoy a walk of around a mile down the Oxford Canal to Lower Heyford where a shop and cafe can be found at the canal wharf as well as a further good pub. Rail access is excellent with Lower Heyford having a station feeding to Oxford and London Paddington, Bicester North is 7 miles East with fast and frequent trains into London Marylebone. Road links are also straightforward with both the M40 and A34 a short drive away.
4 Somerton Road is a lovely cottage dating from the 18th century. When our client purchased it needed a lot of work to bring it up to a good standard. Today the charm and quirkiness so attractive in an old cottage remains, but the standard of fixtures and fittings has been raised considerably. In addition, our client has increased the insulation very effectively (including under the floor downstairs) and hence it is a much more efficient property to heat - we are informed the bill has dropped by 2/3! Do note that the property has no garden, however there are village allotments opposite - our client already has two plots.
Walking through the front door a charming hall with a tiled floor leads straight ahead. Off to the right the living room is light and pretty, looking out towards the allotments opposite and including a rather lovely window seat. There is also a fireplace not currently used but we know no reason why it could not be active. On the other side of the hall the bathroom is stylish and extremely well planned, with a timeless suite that very much suits the style of property. Beyond this the newly-laid oak tread staircase curves upwards, and underneath it is a considerable cupboard space. To the rear the kitchen is delightful, and surprisingly large. With more than enough space for a breakfast table and four chairs this is a great space. Modern units and tiling make it a really stylish and practical kitchen space for the most professional of cooks, and there is a good amount of storage.
Upstairs the pretty landing is elegant with slender spindles. Leading off there are two bedrooms, bright with neutral decor. The master is a double, the second a smaller bedroom/ study. Both look East over the allotments, with fields beyond.
