Bloxham is a popular, well-served north Oxfordshire village with an excellent community, situated between the market towns of Banbury and Chipping Norton in attractive undulating countryside.
The village has a mini supermarket, garage (with shop), hairdressers, chemist, Post Office, doctors’ surgery, dentists, vets and there are three public houses. There are local nursery, primary and secondary schools (The Warriner) with Tudor Hall and Bloxham School closeby. Connection to the M40 Motorway at Junction 11 Banbury is about 4 miles away and a good fast train service from Banbury to London Marylebone (from 54 minutes).
Thatchers is a Grade II Listed terraced ironstone cottage situated in the heart of the village. The property is believed to date from the 18th century (with later additions) and has many features including window seats, original built in cupboards and some ceiling timbers. The house is accessed under a thatched porch by some stone steps which lead to a central hallway. The drawing room is a good size with a wide inglenook fireplace, built in cupboards and a door to the cellar. The dining room has a door to the rear kitchen with a skylight and various cupboards and a dual fuel range. To the rear of the property is a study area with views over the garden and a door to the utility room and cloakroom. From the rear hallway stairs rise to the first floor. The main bedroom has a high ceiling and en-suite wc/wash basin. There are two further bedrooms and a family bathroom. Stairs rise to the second floor with another bedroom, a shower room and a useful box/drying room.
The property would now benefit from some sympathetic updating and modernisation, and would provide a charming home full of character.
The rear garden is west facing and comprises an eating terrace with raised flower beds and a lawn leading to another paved area with adjoining shed. Separated from the property, and accessed by a short walk, is an owned off road parking area for several cars and a double stone garage with automatic up and over doors.
