SITUATION Drayton St Leonard is in an idyllic south-Oxfordshire location on the banks of the River Thame. This traditional village has many old and historical houses, a church, village hall, public house and two working farms. It is well placed for access to both Oxford (6 miles) and the Thames Valley as well as the M40 (Junction 7, 6 miles) for London and Birmingham.

The market town of Wallingford (7.5 miles) provides comprehensive day to day amenities and a range of shops,including Waitrose. The many excellent private schools in both Oxford and Abingdon are easily reached and the village falls within the catchment area for St Birinius C of E primary school in Dorchester on Thames, with secondary schooling in Abingdon.
 

DESCRIPTION Having been extensively extended and improved over the years, the later additions of the Old Cottage, complement the new and old elements of this period family home perfectly. Many original features have been retained, such as an impressive inglenook fireplace and an abundance of exposed vertical and horizontal beams.

The charming sitting room enjoys a large inglenook fireplace with attractive front and rear panelled windows, making for an ideal entertaining space and providing easy access to the adjoining family room and the kitchen/dining room. The kitchen area offers a bespoke range of antique pine units, Rangemaster stove, belfast sink, and timber work surfaces, as well as a larder room and french doors to the patio area and private rear gardens. Adjacent to the sitting room, is the family room, providing the ideal children's space. There is also a good-size downstairs cloakroom, incorporating a low-level wc plumbing for laundry appliances and potential for a ground floor shower cubicle.

To the first floor, there is an abundance of character, with views to the rear cottage gardens, The 16'ft spacious master bedroom enjoys both side and rear garden aspects and provides plenty of space for storage. There are three further bedrooms, all with exposed wooden flooring, and a stylish family bathroom with "rainfall" shower.

Outside, the front gardens are approached via wrought-iron gates, with ample off-street parking. To the side of the driveway, is a working kitchen garden, presented as a potager, with raised produce beds, cottage plants and various planters. There is also a single garage, next to the adjoining property, and plenty of on-street parking for several vehicles. The idyllic and secluded rear gardens are predominantly laid to lawn, with an additional pretty circular patio area for al-fresco dining and extensive flower beds with a variety of shrubbery and flowering plants.
