With history dating back 900 years, Souldern is one of North Oxfordshire's best kept secrets. While it is only 7 miles from Banbury, and a few minutes' drive from access to London and Birmingham, the village lies on a no-through-road in the heart of the countryside. The famous Bicester Village shopping venue is a short distance away together with further amenities at nearby Banbury and Bicester, from where there is a 45 minute rail service to London Marylebone. This unique village enjoys a caring community spirit, a popular pub, a church and a thriving village hall. It has its own pleasant wood a few minutes from the property and many other countryside walks nearby.
Chapel Row cottages are probably some of the oldest houses in the village. Blink and you might miss their location on the away past, so well hidden are they. A small entrance over cobbles brings you down a pedestrian walk between half a dozen cottages and their gardens. Once there the rest of the world melts away, as if traffic never existed. Number two is in particularly fine order, our owners have made it their obsession over recent years and consequently wherever you look the attention to detail is a joy. From wall timbers to stone floors, a range cooker to a large wood burner, all the lovely things are here! Just move in, and relax...
The front door opens into an elegant hall, wide enough for a table for keys, phone etc. Ahead to one side the stairs rise away from you, they are pleasingly well lit by the window on the landing above - and further natural light floods in from the window at the end. The stone floor under foot and beams overhead both draw you in, tempting with their character just as much as proving the standard of this property is high. On the left the cloak room is an example of excellent design, integrating exposed stone and an original window aperture with a stylish modern suite. At the end of the corridor there are doors to either side. On the right, the kitchen is delightfully presented, with a comprehensive range of units on three sides that also include wood work surfaces. The range cooker and Belfast style sink really set the tone too, this room has been beautifully executed. It's a wonderful place for any chef - although the view of the birds in the garden to the front might be distracting. To the left of the hall, the living space is surprisingly generous. Further beams reinforce that cottage feeling. But they are not low-set hence do not make the room feel cramped, and being double aspect it enjoys excellent natural light. In fact, it's a good size with more than enough space to place a table to the front with ample room for book shelves etc to the alcoves on both sides. The fireplace is the central feature, with a deep Inglenook in the centre of which is a wood burner. The floor is slate tiled, which sets off brilliantly in contrast to the white of the walls.
Upstairs are two bedrooms. The master is instantly appealing with wall timbers that really are a treat for the eyes. A large bank of wardrobes and store cupboards has been fitted to the side, providing more than enough storage but with ample room to spare for a chest, side table ad the largest of beds. The second bedroom, while more compact, is also a double - and this, too, features those lovely wall timbers. Serving both, the bathroom feels like it belongs in a more expensive property, such is the specification. The wood floor looks warm and contrasts beautifully with the suite, which is modern but timeless. A large shower has been fitted complete with thermostatic controls and brilliant white tiling, and there is also a towel radiator.
Outside, the space is just as appealing. As previously mentioned, the garden is bisected by the small path leading to just these few houses. Hence our vendors have created a paved area in front of the house for practicality such as bins and log stores, with room to spare for a couple of chairs to enjoy the sun in one direction. Then the majority of the garden has been landscaped, fenced in with elegant railings, a pergola fitted, several different levels with seating areas (ideal for entertaining) as well as lawn, and there is even a shed. We have added photos on the internet from Summer months as these truly do justice to the thought and care that has been applied. It is a truly lovely space.
