Noke - Sold Subject to Contract Guide Price £850,000

Back To Property List

Vine Cottage successfully combines the charm of a bygone era with the practical requirements of modern sustainable living.

Originally just a small pretty Grade II Listed part thatched cottage, the property has been extended, with a much larger addition to the rear, to provide a spacious family home in this peaceful Village just to the North East of Oxford.

The owner, a local craftsman, has sourced traditional trades and materials from the Oxfordshire area to produce a character home that is largely self-sufficient in its energy use and is generally eco-friendly.

The addition to the cottage has been constructed of local Oak, Noke clay, Bletchingdon straw and Wytham Chestnut shingle roof tiles and other local materials. The property benefits from solar panels & wood burning stoves for underfloor heating and hot water. Outside the gardens are secluded and the property overlooks fields and countryside to the rear. There is ample off street parking and a large outbuilding.

There is also the bonus of having permission in place to replace the existing outbuilding with a large workshop. The owner would be happy to retain this part of the property if a buyer is interested in Vine Cottage but at a lower figure.

N.B. The property is in the process of being redecorated and finishing works are being carried out.

Area description

Noke is a pretty no through village made up of attractive individual houses and cottages and is surrounded by fields and countryside. The Otmoor Nature reserve is at the far end of the village and there is a 13th Century Church and a large village field with a fabulous children's play area. Vine Cottage is situated close to the village pond, adjacent to a field and is screened by tall trees and shrubs. The neighbouring village of Islip offers a village school with pre school, a general store within the village hall, a doctors surgery with a dispensing pharmacy and two village pubs.
