Enjoying a prime spot in a quiet lane close to the centre of this sought after village this attractive and characterful Victorian Country House (c1865), formerly the village pub, offers generous accommodation and delightful gardens.

The spacious living area offers a large hallway that runs through to the rear; superb sitting room with fireplace (approx 35' x 14') and well-appointed kitchen to the rear. A wet room, separate WC and second reception room with double doors to the garden.

To the first floor there are five double rooms four of which are currently used as bedrooms and the fifth of equal size currently as a study/office together with a family bathroom.

The mature, well-stocked rear garden is enclosed with a patio area ideal for alfresco dining.

Outbuildings comprise of a combined garage and workshop (internal approx. 22' x 14'), second garage (internal approx. 8'6 x 16'). Ample parking for several cars approached by a wide drive with double hardwood gates. In addition there is a 7' x 8' potting shed.

Bull House currently enjoys BT high speed broadband and has recently had an ultrafast terminal installed adjacent to the property by Gigaclear (village system scheduled but not yet actually on line).

A further attribute are the 4kw of property owned solar panels that generate a yearly income in the region of £1,800 to £2,000 pa.

Overall, a superb family home offering potential for change (subject to planning) perhaps even to a country guest house as the property formerly had an alcohol licence. A viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate all that is on offer.

Aston is a small village located some three miles south of Witney. Facilities include an excellent primary school and playgroup, repair garage, St James Church, Baptist Church and local public house. The village shop provides a large range of groceries and a small coffee shop and an outreach post office three times a week. The village boasts a working pottery with a very impressive country style cafe and gift shop. Nearby Bampton is a former market town with additional facilities including a doctor's surgery, pharmacy, a range of shops, and is located approximately two miles away. A bus service runs to Witney (via Bampton) with its wider range of shopping, schooling and recreational facilities and connections to Oxford and Swindon. Bampton is a colourful Cotswold town noted as being the host to Morris Dancing Festivals, an annual pram race etc. However, although these are long standing traditions it is actually most noted for the recent use of its church St Mary's as a setting for the TV series Downton Abbey that attracts many visitors both domestic and from overseas.
