An unmodernised attached period 2 bedroom cottage of great charm occupying a cul-de-sac setting with a lovely garden and off-road parking

Tenure : Freehold -

Description: - This delightful period cottage offers opportunities to improve and extend, subject to obtaining planning and building consents. It occupies a lovely setting with a south-facing aspect and has an attractive approach that includes private off-road parking and a shallow brook that meanders through a richly-stocked garden. The cottage is set behind the garden and probably dates from the 19th century with more modern extensions to both flanks. The interior has much character and includes exposed structural timbers and a sizeable vaulted reception room with vaulted ceiling. The property has good access into the countryside with a public footpath into the adjacent meadows being close-by whilst Watlington High Street is no more than a 7 minute level walk.

Location: - Watlington is reputedly England’s smallest town with its origins dating from the 6th century. The town has a range of sports facilities that embrace football and cricket as well as tennis, squash and bowls. There are good local shops including a first class butcher and delicatessen and some excellent restaurants and pubs. Watlington Primary school and Rainbow Corner day nursery and pre-school have an ‘outstanding’ ofsted rating and senior education is provided by the well-regarded Icknield Community College. The Chiltern Hills rise above the town and offer some of the finest landscapes in south-east England. There is much on offer here for outdoor enthusiasts, cyclists and walkers as The Icknield Way (Ridgeway National Trail) passes close to the town. Watlington is also the heartland of the re-introduced Red Kite that now soar above the town’s roof tops.

Outside: - Parking: A paved 2 bay parking area fronts the approach to the cottage. There is also unrestricted on-street parking.

The Garden: About 14m deep (46'). A low picket gate and pathway, flanked by a shallow brook, lead across the garden to the front door. The garden is richly stocked and includes a wide variety of plants, shrubs and trees interspersed with areas of lawn. There are two timber-framed garden stores.
