Full description

Tenure: Freehold

What we believe makes this property unique;

•This truly is a rare opportunity to acquire an untouched, Grade II* Listed, detached cottage, with pretty gardens to all sides and a fabulous opportunity to create a wonderful country retreat.

•It is understood the cottage was built by the son of The Bell Inn, Shenington, a John Edwards, who moved into this pretty ''new build'' in 1716, the year of his marriage.

•Although the property requires rewiring/central heating installed and a complete refurbishment, the thatch is in good order and with the quintessential English country cottage appearance, the potential is enormous.

•At present the cottage has a sitting room with inglenook fireplace and flagstone floors, and then leading off the sitting room there is a kitchen with a back door into the garden.

•The bathroom is currently situated on the ground floor and I suspect that any buyer would want to reconfigure to add the bathroom upstairs subject to Listings consents.

•Both bedrooms are doubles and have original floorboards and the place simply oozes with character throughout.

•The cottage currently has no vehicular access, although the owner who resided here for 36 years, used a space just down the road which is common land. There are potentially options for access, which the agent is happy to discuss with potential buyers.

Alkerton and Shenington, are neighbouring villages, that sit on the borders of Oxfordshire, Warwickshire and the Cotswolds and has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. These two villages have always been popular due to the picturesque countryside around along with their close proximity to Banbury (6 miles) and Stratford (16 miles), plus the M40 (Junction 11) at Banbury enables easy travel both north to Birmingham and south to Oxford/London. With an excellent train line linking Banbury and London (Marylebone) from 55 minutes journey time, communication links are an advantage. These two villages benefit from very little light, or noise pollution - a rarity these days with rail and motorways dissecting the countryside. The villages share a small parish church, public house, doctor's surgery and the award winning Shenington Primary School. Local retail therapy can be found at Banbury, Bicester, Oxford and Stratford upon Avon; the latter also offering the Royal Shakespeare Theatre Company, for culture and cinema's in all four towns.
