Full description

Three bedroom Victorian cottage dating back to 1865 within the desirable, picturesque Oxfordshire village of Steeple Aston. The accommodation is arranged over two floors and has the benefit of a two bedroom annex. In addition there is a cellar, large carport and garage. The property has been enjoyed by the same family for four generations and is now ready for the next phase of its life.

Palmer House is in an enviable position in the desirable Oxfordshire village of Steeple Aston. This property is built using local stone and is an attractive double fronted period house with sash windows and tall ceilings. The front garden is edged by attractive wrought ironwork and climbing roses.

The property is currently configured over two floors to offer two reception rooms both with exposed bricks and feature fireplaces, making them cosy for winter evenings. The large kitchen has room to fit a dining table and chairs and also features a small pretty stain glass window and lovely outlook over the church in the distance.

There is a useful full head height dry cellar, which could be used for storage or a home office.

The ground floor accommodation is completed by a family bathroom and separate WC.

The centralised hallway leads you to the first floor accommodation where there are three double bedrooms. One of the front bedrooms has a large cupboard and loft access and the back bedroom boasts a window seat looking over the courtyard below and airing cupboard.

Palmer House comes with a spacious two bedroom stone cottage, which is link-detached to the main house. It offers two double bedrooms with storage in the eves and Velux windows, a bathroom, a dual aspect sitting room and separate dining area with under stair storage. The door in the kitchen leads to the courtyard garden and access to the main house. The windows in the annex have recently been replaced. There is the potential to take the roof off and connect the two dwellings as the foundations are deep enough. The annex has been rented out in the past bringing in an income. It also has the potential to be used as a business (subject to planning) or for teenagers, relatives or guests.

An archway leads you to the double carport and garage.

The partially walled courtyard patio is a pretty suntrap with roses climbing the trellis, making it a special place to enjoy an al fresco breakfast. The greenhouse is discreetly tucked away.
