This handsome, Grade II-listed cottage is thought to date back to the 18th century and sits modestly in the heart of Woodstock, just a short walk from the plethora of shops, pubs, restaurants, and cafes that the town has to offer. Behind a stone-fronted façade, the internal floor area is approaching 1200 Sq Ft; there are three bedrooms and a series of elegant living spaces, brimming with original character features and modern fixtures which blend effortlessly to provide quintessential period living in the heart of one of the country's most coveted and historic market towns.
Approached via a gated front garden, Fox Cottage has been meticulously maintained by the current owners with all works finished to a high specification and sympathetically to its classical design.
The ground floor offers flexibility with a warm and welcoming sitting room festooned with character including exposed beams and a stone open fireplace with log burner. In addition, a spacious garden room - which opens out onto the south east facing garden - has its own log burner and oak beams. Both reception rooms are complimented by the well-appointed kitchen.
On the first floor there are two bedrooms, with one currently being used as a study, as well as a family bathroom with an additional utility room. The second floor consists of a further double bedroom with useful eve storage.
Situated to the side of the property is a delightful, enclosed garden surrounded by stone walls and a mature hedge row. The garden features a small ornamental pond, flower beds and an abundance of roses and climbers. A stone patio area is enhanced by an oak framed pergola and an adjacent wood store. The front of Fox Cottage is set back from the quiet road thanks to a further stone wall and small lawn, and the property is adorned by a mature wisteria in the summer.
This thriving market town is located north west of Oxford and on the edge of Blenheim Palace Estate. Residents benefit from a 'walking pass' for the grounds. The town itself has an active community and a charming centre with a Post Office, churches of several denominations and a wide range of shops, hotels, restaurants and pubs. It has excellent schools/childcare facilities and good access to the well known Oxford schools including St. Edwards, Summer Fields, The Dragon, Oxford High, Headington Girls and Radley. Woodstock is conveniently located for the M40, the Cotswolds and Stratford-upon-Avon and Soho Farmhouse is approximately 10 minutes' drive away.
