A three bedroom character property which is located within the heart of this very sought-after South Oxfordshire market town and benefits from generous sized accommodation, a garden and a garage with parking in front of it.

This sizeable character property is believed to have originally been a cart shed and a workshop with the original wheel for loading sacks onto carts retained as a ceiling feature within what is now the living room. This is a generous sized double aspect room with a glass door to a pretty walled garden and beyond are two parking spaces, one immediately to the rear of the garden wall and the other by the entrance of the driveway, in front of the garage, from Watcombe Road. In addition to the living room is an entrance hall with the front door onto Hill Road, a kitchen breakfast room and a cloakroom with a toilet and hand basin. On the first floor are three bedrooms and a shower room with the master bedroom extending over part of the ground floor of the adjacent building. Although the property is in a habitable condition the fixtures and fittings suggest it was last significantly refurbished in the 1970’s or 1980’s and as such it offers an excellent opportunity to refurbish and improve. The town is beautifully located at the foot of the Chiltern Hills, equidistant to Henley and Oxford and very easily accessible to the M40, being just 3 miles from J6.
