DESCRIPTION Enchanting 18th Century timber-framed detached period cottage, complemented by riverside gardens and detached double garage with part-converted loft area and fitted bathroom .

The cottage has a shared driveway access with a neighbouring detached property called Bridge Cottage, which in turn leads onto a generous gravelled driveway proving off-street parking, with access to the double detached garage and cottage front gardens. The cottage has been much improved by the current vendors, to a good standard, and has the benefit of two side extensions completed in 2003 and 2005, as well as the addition of the detached double garage in 1999.

Leading through from the small entrance hall, the inner reception hall/dining room offers an abundance of period features such as exposed wall and ceiling beams and a pretty open inglenook fireplace with bread oven, brick surround and tiled hearth, connecting to both the main sitting room and fitted kitchen area.

The kitchen offers a good selection of wall and base units, with laminated work surfaces and one and a half bowl sink unit, as well as an integrated fan-assisted oven, induction hob, overhead extractor, space for low-level fridge and built-in wine rack. Other features include modern-day downlighters, terracotta quarry tiled flooring, central exposed wooden beam, and large French doors leading onto the gravelled patio area.

The sitting room also offers many period features, such as a number of horizontal and vertical beams, and an attractive small open brick fireplace with oak mantel and inserts for log storage, open to the adjoining garden/reading room, with terracotta tiled floor and vaulted ceiling, large French doors and fully hinged side windows, providing pretty views over the rear gardens and the river Thame.

In reference to the first floor, there is a primary stairwell leading to three bedrooms and a refitted family bathroom compromising of a panelled bath with shower mixer tap attachment, low-level wc, pedestal wash-hand basin, fully tiled walls and flooring, with potential for a separate shower cubicle. Via the entrance hall, is a secondary stairwell to an additional double bedroom, with exposed stone walling, pedestal wash-hand basin and fitted shower cubicle with mains-operated shower unit.

The impressive detached double garage with power, light and personal door to the pretty gardens, has an external staircase to the first floor, with a part converted loft area and adjoining fitted bathroom suite, offering the potential for an annexe facility or home office.

The well tended and established gardens, offers an idyllic riverside position with its own island abutting the Chiselhampton Bridge and views towards the nearby water meadows, as well as a gravelled patio terrace, with steps rising onto the lawned area and interspersed flower and shrub borders.

PLEASE NOTE: There is a public right of way which runs along the side of the detached garage to the far-corner of the garden.
