Description Enjoying views over Blenheim Estate Parkland to the rear, this delightful period cottage has been the subject of a complete programme of renovation and has been substantially extended to provide a superb new kitchen/dining/living room to the rear with a large 'Lantern Light' in the dining area making these rooms wonderfully light and airy, whilst retaining the original cosy sitting room to the front. Stylishly presented throughout, the property benefits from a wet underfloor heating system fed from a newly installed 'Vaillant' boiler and LED lighting throughout. On the first floor there are two bedrooms, the master with walk-in wardrobe and there is a super new bathroom. Outside the landscaped west facing garden complements the interior of the house with a limestone patio leading down to a manicured lawn and at the end of the garden a cleverly designed seating area. This area could also potentially provide the space for a home office/studio subject to the necessary consents.

Location Situated on the edge of Blenheim Palace Estate, Bladon is renowned for being the resting place of Sir Winston Churchill, who in January 1965 was buried in St Martin's Churchyard a few minutes walk from the cottage. The village is particularly attractive with many period properties and attracts visitors from all over the world who come to see the final resting place of the man voted 'The Greatest Englishman of all time'. Bladon has an excellent Primary School, a Public House and Tea room, whilst the Market Town of Woodstock just 1.5 miles distant has an extensive range of attractive shops, restaurants and cafes and the magnificent Blenheim Palace which is a Unesco World Heritage site. The City of Oxford ( 7.5 miles) provides excellent educational and cultural facilities and nearby Hanborough Station connecting with Oxford and London Paddington is just 1.4 miles.

Directions Leaving Oxford at the Pear Tree roundabout follow the signs for Woodstock (A44) and continue for approximately 4 miles. Take the first exit at the Woodstock roundabout onto the A4095 Grove Road and continue for .9 mile turn left in to Church Street and follow the road round when No 3 will be found on the right.
