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, doctor’s 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 close by. 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).
The Cottage is an extended 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, some ceiling timbers and an inglenook fireplace. The property is now in need of some sympathetic refreshing, but would create a very special home.
The entrance hall leads to the kitchen, with access to the rear of the property and garden. The dining room, with ceiling beams, has a feature inglenook fireplace with woodburner and large bread oven. The extended spacious sitting/family room, with two levels, has parquet flooring, and a stone fireplace. It offers a generous versatile space. Doors lead to the garden.
On the first floor there are three double bedrooms (one with a good range of inbuilt cupboards/wardrobes), and a family bathroom. There are two access hatches to two good sized attic spaces
The rear garden is west facing and enclosed with walled boundaries. Steps lead to a paved terrace, interspersed with well stock flower borders, including rose bushes and mature trees. To the rear is a small brick/stone outhouse.
