Such delightful condition, wonderful natural light, and great taste! Definitely the best of its type we have seen.

Yarnton is an old Oxfordshire village with roots dating back many hundreds of years, with one notable story being with the dissolution of the monasteries in the 16th Century when Henry VIII sold the village to his physician! In recent decades it has grown to accommodate mainly housing for families looking for a quiet location away from towns but with the easiest possible access to them. Oxford is very few minutes away by car and Kidlington even closer hence all possible amenities from schools to restaurants and shops are within a short distance. Various good state and private schools are also within easy reach.

51 Meadow Way simply shines. It is the best house in the best part of one of the best roads in this part of Yarnton - which is also the most convenient for A34 and Oxford commuting. The owners have loved this house over many years but, unlike many, they have continuously modernised and upgraded it. This is at least in part due to one of them being a fine quality carpenter! As is often the case with a really good house, it's the little details that shine through. All the fixtures smack of quality and real thought. The kitchen has a uniquely attractive style. Big, modern, double glazed windows throw light around every room. Even the outlook to the front is pleasantly sleepy across a mature garden and a well spaced close of houses. It's a really lovely place to be.

The main door opens into a particularly attractive hall, wide and fitted with a lovely oak floor that continues through into the living room. Doors open into two large cupboards (one disappearing right under the stairs) and a cloak room, plus the stairs are to the rear. On the right the reception room feels calm and warm, painted a soft butter yellow that contrasts brilliantly with the white ceiling and oak floor. Dual aspect with a bay to the front, the light is wonderful - and the view of both gardens is similarly attractive. There are also oak shelf units that are beautifully made and compliment the space perfectly. On the other side of the hall the kitchen occupies a similar space. To the front the extensive range of units wrap around three sides with an unusual, and very successful, mix of soft grey doors and oak edging. Of particular interest we thought was the way the ceiling lights follow the line of the units - a really thoughtful design. Corner units have clever systems to maximise the space use, and the extractor in particular is a very effective unit as it doesn't take up the usual space. To the rear there is ample space for a large table and chairs quite aside from any dressers etc you might want to house, and the bi-fold doors to the rear open up to a delightful garden.

Upstairs the first impression is how effectively the half-landing window lights the whole space, and this includes adding light to the rooms ranged round it. Four bedrooms all provide genuine double room space. The master bedroom is simply elegant and spacious. It's en-suite by comparison is more contemporary with a glass sink, and little touches such as oak storage units and a vertical radiator. Bed two is a similar size, used at present as a study and immaculately fitted with two bespoke desks and a range of cupboards - overhead the lighting follows the same thought as the kitchen. The two smaller bedrooms are very much doubles, longer and thinner but, as bedroom three shows, very effective double rooms. All four are served by a pretty bathroom with a modern suite and, unusually, a rather pleasant panelling round the walls that doubles as a cover for piping and a way to provide a shelf!

Outside is interesting. To the front the main benefit of this particular plot is ample space that has become both a lengthy driveway and also a large front garden space with a range of plants. It's set back hence feels very private with the foliage closing it off from neighbours. On the right there is side access, and off to the left the driveway runs down to the garage. Here the roller door is electric, and it opens into different spaces as the vendors have stud walled it to provide a utility space as well as garaging. As with everything else, it's in great condition, and of note is the fact that the pitched roof provides a lot of extra storage if desired. To the right the gate leads through to a rather lovely garden space. Every inch is maximised to be pretty as well as useful - even including a timber shed with windows behind the garage. The terrace curving round behind the house is ideal for summer dining next to the kitchen doors. Behind it the centre space is lawn but around the edges is a lovely and diverse mix of flowering plants, trees and shrubs. It's an extremely calm and inviting space, secure for children and pets alike and equally ideal for a relaxing Sunday!
