An early 20th century refurbished four double bedroom detached cottage with versatile accommodation, private south west facing gardens and off street parking. April Cottage was constructed in the early 1900s and is believed to have been the coach house that served an adjacent Victorian country house. The current owners have extended and refurbished the cottage to include a solid oak fitted kitchen, refitted bathroom and shower room suites, wood burning stoves, a twin staircase and underfloor heating. The gardens face south west and wrap around the cottage and the kitchen opens onto a private gravelled seating area. Oving has a newly designed village hall, tennis courts, a children's playground, a public house and a church. Whitchurch is approximately 1.5 miles away and has a Supermart/post office, a combined school, a public house and a beauty salon. A mainline railway station is situated in Aylesbury Town Centre, with London Marylebone reached in 59 minutes.

From the driveway, a lattice style timber gate opens to the south west facing private lawned garden which wraps around the cottage. A paved path leads to the front door.
