A stone built detached house of period origins, rebuilt in the 1950's alongside a small group of properties on the eastern fringes of Witney. The property stands in an established gently sloping plot of about 1/3 of an acre close to the A40 and adjoining open farmland along it's northern boundary. The garden boasts a small inset swimming pool, a large double garage with pool store and room above (ideal home office/studio) and ample driveway parking. The house has been let for a number of years and would now benefit from some updating but has been recently redecorated and does benefit from a refitted Kitchen. Features worthy of note include open fireplaces, exposed ceiling timbers, leaded windows (not throughout) and parquet flooring.  The accommodation includes 4 Bedrooms, 2 Reception Rooms, a Garden Room, modern fitted Kitchen and a ground floor Shower Room.  An individual family sized property in the same ownership for over 50 years with considerable potential for extension and alteration and available with no onward chain.  Viewings available with proceedable buyers only.  

SITUATION
The bustling and hugely popular Market Town of Witney lies some 12 miles west of Oxford and is well situated for the A40, A34 and M4 & M40 motorways. The vibrant and rapidly expanding Town has a wide range of shops in the sympathetically designed Woolgate Centre, traditional High Street and more recently built Marriotts Walk shopping mall with major shopping brands including Marks & Spencer and a multi-screen 3D cinema. The Market Square with historic Butter Cross opens onto the delightful Church Green flanked by beautiful period properties with St. Mary’s Church dominating the south side. Amenities in the Town include supermarkets, banks, two secondary schools and numerous primary schools, leisure centre, Witney & Abingdon College, a vast array of restaurants and public houses, a fantastic daily bus service into Oxford and, on the outskirts of the Town, Witney Lakes Resort with golf course, health club and swimming pool. There are also plenty of countryside walks within easy reach of the Town.
