Built in the 1860s, this charming period cottage has been extensively renovated and modernised by the current owner to include, amongst a long list of improvements, a new kitchen, bathroom, cloakroom and oil-fired boiler.

The property comprises an entrance hall which leads to a kitchen diner, on the right hand side, with a Rayburn and separate built-in electric hob and oven. There are hardwood worktops with a Belfast sink, stone tiled floor and a door leading to the garden. There is a sitting room on the opposite side of the hallway, with a log burner and French doors also leading to the southerly facing garden, and a utility room. Upstairs there are three bedrooms, and a family bathroom.

Eaton is a small hamlet, served by a public house, located about halfway between the larger villages of Appleton and Cumnor. The small country lane that runs through the hamlet runs down to the river Thames and the ancient crossing point at Bablock Hythe where a ferry ran for more than 100 years. The property is located on a country lane just outside the hamlet. Cumnor and Appleton are thriving villages served by local shops and primary schools. Situated about five miles east of the property on the edge of Oxford is the Westway shopping centre at Botley with its extensive range of shops, banks and doctor's surgery. The property is particularly well located for the popular Abingdon and Oxford schools, including the European School at Culham. Other amenities include Frilford Heath Golf Club and sports facilities at Westminster College. The A420 Provides access to the A34 which has good links with the M40 to the north and M4 to the south. Didcot provides a mainline rail link to London Paddington.
