Eleys is found in the rural village of Buckland, just off the A420, in the Vale of White Horse. The property is located along a private road within the village. The village has a host of amenities including the popular Lamb Inn and an outstanding Church of England primary school. There is a thriving community within the village as shown by the activities run from the village hall, including a toddler group. The historic St Mary the Virgin Church dates from the 12th Century.
A wider range of amenities can be found in nearby Oxford or Swindon. There are also an excellent range of private schools nearby including St Hugh's Primary School, The Dragon School, Cokethorpe, St Edward's Headington and Radley.

Eleys is a stunning thatched cottage full of character, encompassing an array of features including exposed timber beams and stone work, as well as a large inglenook fireplace in the drawing room. Positioned on a private, gravel lane, fronted by a stone wall, the house itself has plenty of parking on the graveled driveway in front of the property. One enters the front porch which leads into the charming drawing room, the focal point of which is a large, inglenook fireplace.
To the right is the sitting room, with stairs to the first floor. To the left of the drawing room is a cloakroom and dining room, beyond which is the kitchen. The kitchen has a range of floor and wall mounted units, wooden work surfaces and a large electric cooker and gas hob.
The charm of the cottage continues on the first floor. The largest bedroom is found to the right of the staircase, with inbuilt wardrobes. The 2nd bedroom has an en-suite with a shower. Two further bedrooms and a well presented family bathroom, equipped with a bath are located beyond. The spacious landing could be used for a study and currently houses a desk.

To the front of the property a variety of shrubs are either side of the gravel drive resulting in a very attractive overall appearance. There is also a well at the front of the property. The path to the rear of the property is lined with lavender bushes. The rear garden is slightly raised and is lawned, with pretty flowerbeds and a sunken patio area, all bordered by hedging ensuring privacy.
The garage has both electricity and water and is currently used as a gym. There is a ladder to an attic room which may be suited to conversion into an annex or studio, subject to the necessary permissions.
