SITUATION Drayton St Leonard is an idyllic South-Oxfordshire village with many period and historical houses, an Anglican church, village hall, playground, the Catherine Wheel public house and two working farms. Drayton St Leonard is situated approximately 8 miles from the historic market towns of Abingdon and Wallingford, 10 miles from Oxford and 17 miles from Henley on Thames. Junction 7 of the M40 for London and Birmingham is just 6 ½ miles away. Didcot Parkway railway station for London is within easy reach. It is a fabulous village with a very strong community spirit. There are lots of events organised by villagers throughout the year including a hugely successful Safari Supper, Summer Fête, quiz nights, flower arranging classes, wine tasting evenings and film nights. There is an active History Society, Investment Club, Book Club, Gardening Club and Bellringing Group.

The village is not on a main road, it is surrounded by fields and the River Thame runs nearby. The market towns of Wallingford and Abingdon provide comprehensive day to day amenities and a range of shops, including Waitrose. There are also two small supermarkets under 2 miles away in Stadhampton and Berinsfield.

The village falls within the catchment area for the multi-lingual European School at Culham and St Birinius C of E primary school in Dorchester on Thames, with secondary schooling in Abingdon.

DESCRIPTION Built in 1840, The Old School House is a bright and beautiful bijoux cottage, boasting a wealth of character features, set in the heart of this tranquil South Oxfordshire Village. Originally constructed for the school mistress and teacher of the old school next door, this two-bedroom home includes elevated ceilings, latch doors, exposed beams and wrought iron front gate, along with a modern kitchen and cottage garden.

Downstairs is comprised of a well proportioned sitting room with wood burning stove, leading to a separate dining room with additional original fireplace and under-stairs storage. There is also a modern kitchen with solid oak worktops, installed in 2018, overlooking the garden.

Upstairs, the light main bedroom to the right offers exposed timbers plus ample storage, by way of built in cupboards with latched cottage doors. To the left lies another bright second bedroom, currently used as a nursery, but could easily fit a double bed. The family bathroom includes a large walk in shower with waterfall shower head.

Outside lies a well-maintained garden, complete with shed, which houses the combi boiler and offers additional storage and a well-sized vegetable plot. There is parking to the front of the house, that while is owned by the highway, has long been accepted as a parking space for The Old School House.
