A charming detached stone cottage nicely positioned in the main street opposite the cricket field and just beyond the Old Swan Hotel and Inn.
TWO BEDROOMS, SITTING ROOM, DINING ROOM, KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM, GROUND FLOOR SHOWER ROOM, PROPANE GAS CENTRAL HEATING, GOOD SIZE ENCLOSED REAR GARDEN AND SPACE TO ONE SIDE FOR PARKING.
Directions: From Witney, proceed on the B4047 in a westerly direction towards Minster Lovell. After approximately a two miles bear right down into the old village. Continue over the bridge and take the first turning right. South View will be found on the left hand side just beyond the Old Swan Hotel.
The cottage is believed to be of late 19th century origin and is constructed of stone under a slate roof with an extension to the rear which was added many years ago. The accommodation is now in need of considerable improvement and updating and the property clearly lends itself to further alteration and possible extension, subject to planning consent. Although quite compact in its present form, the cottage has enormous potential and will command a premium, largely due to the location, where property of this type is rarely available.
Minster Lovell lies on the river Windrush, 6 miles east of Burford and 3 miles west of Witney. The old village lying north of the B4047 in the Conservation Area has been famed since the early 19th century for the scenic ruins of its medieval Manor House and many other lovely period buildings. It is a small extremely attractive village, whose distinctive character derives much from its idyllic riverside setting. The larger part of Minster Lovell is found south of the main road and has an excellent general store, primary school and more varied amenities. The village also falls into the Burford school catchment area. There is no doubting that the Old Minster street scene, from The Swan to the Manor House, is one of the prettiest in all of West Oxfordshire. Oxford c.16 miles, central London c. 74 miles.
