For those wishing to enjoy the immediate surroundings, there are lovely countryside walks along the footpaths and bridleways.

The village has a thriving community, with an annual summer fete, which incorporates the Otmoor Challenge across Otmoor. There are also two tennis courts, a cricket club and Studley Wood Golf Course.

Description

Cobweb Cottage is a charming period property situated in the heart of the village. Believed to date from the late 16th century, it is understood to originally have been a farmhouse and is listed Grade II. It offers considerable character with a thatch roof, exposed beams, inglenook fireplaces
and plank doors. It has been improved and updated by the present owners.

The front door opens on to an entrance lobby with doorway to the family room, which is double aspect and there is an inglenook fireplace with a gas stove. The larger sitting room is beyond and is also double aspect and beamed. To the rear is the well-appointed kitchen with a pale blue Aga, range of cupboards with fitted dishwasher and fridge/ freezer and granite work surfaces. There is also a cupboard with plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer. The rear hall has access to the garden and the dining room which has a fireplace with a log burning stove.

On the first floor are four bedrooms, a shower room and bathroom.

Outside
There is off-street parking and a single garage with separate workshop to the side of the property. A wide side access leads to the attractive rear garden with well-established borders and mature trees providing shelter and privacy. There are two terraces which are ideal for al fresco dining and further sitting areas. In all the gardens and grounds extend to about 0.2 acres.

Mains water, electricity and drainage are connected. Propane gas-fired central heating.

Square Footage: 2,382 sq ft
