An exquisitely renovated and extended 5-bedroom period house set in an idyllic riverside location.
The heart of this home is a beautifully presented kitchen/dining/family room which features a large range and an open fireplace. A stunning vaulted sitting room, converted from the property's old barn, is perfect for entertaining while the dining room with its open fire and patio doors is a lovely intimate space in summer and winter. The ground floor also has an entrance hall, study, a cloakroom and a large utility room.
Each reception room has doors opening onto the terrace of the large south-facing garden. Its lawn then gently slopes down to the River Ray, with farmland views beyond, and is punctuated by secluded seating areas. It is well stocked with mature plants and trees including a Weeping Willow on the river bank. There is a 2 storey stone outbuilding with potential to convert - previously consented plans are available to view. There is also useful rear access through the garage offering ample parking.
The characterful first floor bedrooms have unusually high ceilings and large windows with breathtaking views across the garden, River Ray, and fields beyond from 4 of them. The master bedroom has a large dressing room which could easily be re-modelled to create an en-suite, and there are four further bedrooms (three of which are doubles) and a family bathroom.
Islip is a charming village located along the banks of the River Ray and surrounded by beautiful countryside walks and bridleways as well as being just a short drive from Oxford. The village has thriving community, centred around the village hall (which incorporates a community shop) and a Church of England Parish Church. There are 2 pubs, a well respected local primary school, playground, cricket pitch and a medical practice. Further transport links include a rail station with trains to Oxford and London Marylebone and easy access to the M40 (J8) and (J9) and the A34. Oxford is readily available for more comprehensive facilities and a vibrant cultural scene.
