Three bedroom semi plus office!

A charming early 1900’s cottage, which offers every modern convenience while respecting the integrity of the original design, within a short walk from scenic country paths and woodland bridleways, as well as an extensive range of amenities of this thriving village. Some 600 feet above sea level, it is one of the highest points in the South Chilterns.

A pretty canopied porch leads to two cosy reception rooms with original fireplaces and solid oak floors. A handmade custom fitted kitchen overlooks the lovely courtyard garden, enclosed by a brick and flint wall. There is also a separate utility room with solid granite work surfaces and beech cupboards, as well as an office/study with slate floors and its own door to the front, which could be used for many purposes, including a boot room.

On the first floor there are two generous bedrooms and a shower room, and on the top floor - a further double bedroom and a recently installed family bathroom.

The cottage has a light and airy feel throughout, thanks to large windows, with pleasant views, and a favourable aspect. It has been beautifully refurbished, blending period charm with a contemporary twist and comforts, such as underfloor heating in the bathroom, kitchen, utility, office and the downstairs cloakroom, as well as the abundance of built-in storage.

The village of Woodcote offers plenty of local amenities including a modern Health Centre, sports facilities, a library, a well-stocked Co-op with very generous opening times, as well as excellent state and private schools. It is surrounded by woods and hills criss-crossed with well-kept public footpaths and bridleways. It is superbly connected to both Reading and Oxford via a fast a-road.
