SITUATION The village is highly desirable for a reason - lined with stunning, well maintained period homes, Great Haseley is the countryside dream, nestled in the gorgeous South Oxfordshire countryside. Rural but also extremely well connected, the village is a mere 3 minutes drive to junction 7 on the M40, 20 minutes drive from Oxford and 10 minutes from Haddenham and Thame Parkway with its direct trains to London Marylebone (just under half an hour). Great Haseley is home to its very own French fine dining restaurant in the old village pub, La Table d'Alix and for special occasions, the Michelin starred Le Manoir Aux Quat'Saisons is in the neighbouring village of Great Milton.

Education in the area is first class with the high performing independent schools in both Abingdon and Oxford easily accessible. Primary schooling is situated in the neighbouring villages of Little Milton and Great Milton. The Oxfordshire Golf Club and Waterstock Golf Club are nearby.

DESCRIPTION Windersey in Great Haseley is one of a handful of properties in this picturesque village that has yet to be modernised, having been in the same ownership since 1954. Currently arranged as two separate cottages but being sold as one property, Windersey has the potential to be a wonderfully charming family home.

Full of character while not being Listed, Windersey is believed to date from around the mid 19th Century. Stone built cottages like this are typical of the character property in this village and Windersey would in all likelihood have been built as a traditional farm worker's home. In fact, Windersey is named after one of the four large fields that have surrounded Great Haseley for centuries.

The property is tucked away on the quiet lane into Great Haseley, surrounded by mature trees and with a spacious, south west facing garden with summer house to the front of the house. A driveway and single garage is also available and when you close the cottage gates, Windersey feels private and very peaceful. You can read the history of the property as two homes quite clearly - with two front doors and matching, pretty dormer windows on either side of the roof. Inside, the property is still currently laid out as two houses (one two bed, one three bed) which do not interconnect and offer different layouts and space in each. The potential here is very clear - to combine these properties, renovate from top to bottom and create a single, spacious character home.

While the two sides of Windersey differ in size, they both each have their own inglenook fireplaces, exposed stonework and original farmhouse doors throughout. The house is somewhat 'lost in time' and is looking for a new owner with vision and creativity to make these two traditional cottages into one stunning home for the modern family.

It is very rare that opportunities like this arise in Great Haseley. This is an exciting property - charming and characterful but more than that, it's the chance to own and to 'stamp your mark' on a little piece of Great Haseley's history and create your dream countryside home.
