Property description

Tenure: Please confirm if this is a freehold or leasehold property with John D Wood & Co. Sales

A superb four bedroom house set in a rural idyll with a versatile parcel of 0.5 acres with vehicular access to the land at the rear.

Overlooking the church and set along a quiet lane of a very sought after village this attractive semi-detached Victorian house has been sympathetically enlarged with matching exterior brickwork and provides a great deal of space both inside and out. The accommodation is arranged over two floors and has a wonderful flow throughout. The ground floor revolves around a central hallway and enjoys excellent proportions with an abundance of character including exposed timbers and brickwork, oak floors and cast iron radiators. The kitchen is well appointed with a central island, range cooker and travertine limestone floor. The sitting room is a wonderful space with a log burner set within a fireplace that is the centre piece of the room. At the rear and just off the kitchen is a dining/living room with oak flooring and French doors leading to the garden. There is also a study, WC and small utility. The first floor has been extended to provide four bedrooms, two of which are en suite rooms, and a family bathroom with roll top, claw foot bath and free standing shower.

One of the most notable features of the property are the extensive grounds. To the front of the house is a driveway for several cars which proceeds along the side of the house to a double garage and then into an additional 0.3 acre plot beyond, currently laid to lawn with a lean-to building as useful covered storage. There is a spacious patio area immediately accessed from the rear of the house, with a hot tub and garden pond leading on to a separate lawned garden extending to 115 feet from the back of the house with mature borders surrounding.

Drayton St Leonard is a peaceful yet thriving village about eith miles south east of Oxford with a very active community. Set on the river Thame it has a village hall, public house and the church of St Leonard and St Catherine. You are welcome to join a host of annual events including the music festival, tennis tournament, beer festival and the village fete, complete with bicycle polo and tug of war across the river. Dorchester, with its historic abbey, sailing club and the new Oxford aqua park is nearby, together with Stadhampton, home to the nationally acclaimed "Crazy Bear" public house and farm shop. Oxford and the attractive market towns of Abingdon and Wallingford are all within easy reach making it ideally placed for the many good independent schools in the area including Abingdon, St Helen and St Katharine and Moulsford, as well as an array of excellent schools within Oxford. Mainline rail services are available to London Paddington (forty five minutes) and the west from Didcot Parkway or to London Marylebone (forty minutes) from Haddenham and Thame Parkway, with connections further improved with Crossrail due to fully open in 2022. The M40 is easily accessed at Jct 8a (seven and a half miles).
