Property description

Draycot Cottage is situated in a private setting in the hamlet of Draycot which sits between Ickford and Tiddington. This is a stunning and beautifully presented Grade II listed four bedroom detached thatched house, with good ceiling height both downstairs and upstairs and an array of period features which include polished flag stone floors, inglenook fire places, exposed ceiling and wall timbers, leaded windows and wooden latched doors so indicative of a property of this period. The current owners have maintained a wonderful mixture of character combined with modern features, such as the stylish ensuite bathroom and fully fitted kitchen with integrated electric hob and separate double oven.
The ground floor accommodation comprises a light and airy sitting room and separate dining room, downstairs cloakroom, entrance hall, study and utility room. To the first floor there are four good sized bedrooms, one of which is an exceptional master bedroom with vaulted ceiling, a range of fitted wardrobes and a very spacious ensuite bathroom. In addition there is a family bathroom, separate shower room and a hall landing.

Situation
Draycot is conveniently situated approximately three and a half miles away from Thame and four miles from the M40 motorway and enjoys a thriving community with a popular cricket club, village hall, The Fox & Goat public house and a garage. The village is surrounded by splendid countryside with an extensive network of footpaths and bridleways and offers easy access to the M40 and main line station at Haddenham & Thame Parkway. There is a regular bus service which operates through the village to Thame, Aylesbury and Oxford. Draycot is well placed for access to airports at Heathrow and Birmingham.
Primary school education can be found in the neighbouring village of Ickford and secondary school education in Thame and Wheatley. The property is also within the catchment area for the renowned grammar school Lord Williams’s School in Thame. The nearby village of Ickford has a village school and nursery, village hall, public house, shop and post office. Draycot is well placed for commuters to London by road or rail with train links at Haddenham & Thame Parkway, fast trains are currently scheduled to arrive in London Marylebone in approximately 38 minutes. The historic City of Oxford offers a comprehensive selection of shopping, sporting, recreational, leisure and education facilities including The Dragon, Summerfields, Magdalen College, St. Edward’s, Wychwood and Oxford High School.

Outside
The property is accessed via a gravel driveway which leads to parking for several cars and to the timber garage. The gardens and grounds surround the property and incorporate a pathway which leads to the rear of the property and to a delightful curved sun terrace which commands stunning views over the gardens. The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn and is framed by flower and herbaceous borders and enclosed with mature hedging. A separate and substantial vegetable garden is also enclosed with mature hedging and an attractive stone wall. The stunning gardens and grounds which measure approximately 0.72 of an acre are so quintessential and complement the beautiful detached house. There are a number of outbuildings within the grounds, but of particular note is the old granary which still sits proudly on the saddle stones.
