Description

Greystones is a charming Grade II Listed family house, set in the centre of the idyllic Oxfordshire village of Islip. The property boasts four bedrooms and spacious, flexible accommodation with plenty of period character throughout, along with an impressive modern extension and attractive gardens.

At the heart of the ground floor there is a sitting room and dining room, separated only by the original central fireplace, which provides a grand open fireplace for the sitting room and a wood burning stove for the dining room. Both rooms are cosy and welcoming, with solid timber beams overhead and exposed brickwork to the sitting room. The timbers used in the original construction are believed to have come from a ship. To the rear of the ground floor, the light and airy extension, with its double-height vaulted ceiling, is home to the kitchen, breakfast room and family area.

The kitchen is equipped with a range cooker and extractor hood, plus a breakfast bar, while the breakfast room and family area provides additional relaxed living space with French doors onto the rear gardens.

The four bedrooms are arranged across the first and second floors, with the master featuring a walk- in wardrobe and en suite shower room. There is also a family bathroom on each of the upper floors.

The property occupies a corner plot, running along Middle Street and the High Street, with the pretty St. Nicholas’ Church opposite. Vehicular access is to the side, on Middle Street, where double wooden gates open onto a parking area outside the double garage. There are pleasant gardens to the rear of the house, with an area of decking and an expanse of lawn, bordered and shaded by mature trees, hedgerows and walls. There is a further seating area towards the back of the garden.

Mains gas, water and electricity are connected to the property.

Square Footage: 2,718 sq ft
