A charming Grade II Listed detached three bedroom thatched cottage, standing in grounds of approximately 0.20 of an acre with countryside views. The property provides characterful accommodation arranged on two floors with off road parking.

Situated gable end to the village road with adjacent off road parking, the property has been sympathetically improved to provide the comforts of modern living combined with many period features including two fireplaces, beamed ceilings, exposed stonework and latched internal wooden doors. On the ground floor, a kitchen/breakfast room features a central island and a range of units with built in appliances, complimented by wood work surfaces. The kitchen leads to two adjacent reception rooms, each with a fireplace, connected by a split level. There are two staircases leading to the first floor where there are three bedrooms and a bathroom. One of the bedrooms features a balcony with far reaching views across countryside.


The Conservation village of Shotteswell is situated to the north west of Banbury, off the B4100, and just over the Oxfordshire/Warwickshire border. The village has many fine period stone properties together with a limited number of more recent homes. A school bus takes primary school children to the nearby village of Fenny Compton and secondary school children attend the Kineton school. A footpath opposite the property leads to the Falcon public house. The nearby market town of Banbury offers shopping facilities with a regular train service to London Marylebone and the north. The M40 provides access to both London and Birmingham from Jcts 11 or 12.


The property provides a driveway providing off road parking for a vehicle with a covered car port, currently used as an Al Fresco dining area. The mature rear gardens are principally laid to lawn, with well stocked flowering borders and a variety of mature trees. There is a stone terrace for entertaining. At the bottom of the garden there is a productive vegetable garden. The gardens provide far reaching views across countryside.
