Property Description

Key features


Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Set amongst some of the county's most beautiful countryside this four bedroom natural stone cottage has it all, period features in abundance, well stocked gardens with amazing views, detached garage with annexe potential and spacious, light accommodation across two floors. The property has been a wonderful home to the current owners for over 35 years and it is now being sold on an end of chain basis. Whilst the current configuration works well, the property lends itself to bringing the dining room and kitchen together or creating a separate open plan kitchen/family room to the southern gable end (subject to usual consents). With the hamlet of Shilton and Burford town both a short drive away, this delightful property really is worthy of a viewing.

The hamlet of Stonelands sits within the boundaries of Shilton parish. The area was originally known as Sworn Lains, changed at around 1765, and there is evidence to show that "The Cottage" was built prior to the name change, probably in the 17th Century. Shilton village provides the following amenities: The Rose and Crown public house, a church and chapel. The Old School now serves as a well-equipped village hall and operate as, tea room, meeting room or merely as an overflow party room. The Old Forge was recently transformed into a public house for the popular period drama, Downton Abbey. Shilton is in the catchment area for Burford primary and secondary schools. The private schools of Cokethorpe and Southrop are nearby. The Cotswold Wildlife Park is approximately 1 mile from Shilton village and for commuters the nearest train station is Shipton-under-Wychwood (within 7 miles), but for a more frequent service to London, Charlbury is within 13 miles.
