SUPER ECO VILLAGE RETREAT WITH CHARMS A PLENTY - This former dovecote was converted to a very high standard in 2012

Wantage c2miles Didcot c10.9miles Oxford c18miles

This exceptional village home was created in part from a former dovecote (Listed Grade 2) in 2012 and now offers spectacular accommodation with unusually high insulative qualities, which serve to keep the running costs very modest. The property is in a very quiet setting well away from busy roads but conveniently close to the fabulous facilities of the retirement village as well as the village shop and cafe. Letcombe Regis is at the foot of The Downs amidst great walking country and is a very short drive, or walk by footpath, from Wantage with the joys of Waitrose, Leisure Centre and so much more. Guarantee

The accommodation includes: hallway, cloakroom, fabulous kitchen family room, sitting room in the old dovecote, an opulent orangery looking onto the garden, two bedrooms, bathroom and en suite shower room in the main part of the house and then in the upper part of the dovecote there is an exceptional workroom, library, study or bedroom with its own staircase from the sitting room below. Mains gas fired central heating and 'A' rated double glazing.

Outside there is a neat and easily maintained garden to the rear and another very pretty garden area to the front. At the front of the house there are two parking spaces and in the rear garden there is a well insulated, capacious store shed capable of housing and cosseting a cherished a motorcycle as well as a number of family bicycles.

The current owners were fortunate enough to buy the property at a stage when they could influence the design considerably, hence the magnificent kitchen/family room and a number of other intriguing tweaks that were made for the better. The insulative qualities of the property were high on the agenda and so 'A' rated double glazing was fitted throughout and an additional 100mm of insulation was added into the walls and roof of the dovecote itself, which all work well to make this a very cheap and efficient home to run.

The spectacular top of the range orangery with under floor heating was also an addition made by the current owners.

This high tech home even has the fun of remote controlled electric blinds or top class interior wooden shutters.
Council Tax Band E FLOOR AREA: circa 1,366sq ft
