Developing and extending period properties, particularly when they are constructed of natural stone, is a tricky business even for the most skilled of craftsman. These extensive works have resulted in a finished ar ticle where it is difficult to tell the new from the old. The gable wall was removed stone by stone, cleaned off and re-used to the front and rear elevations to avoid the less attractive look of 'that extra bit added on'. Internally the property now offers separate sitting room and dining room with an eat-in kitchen that opens directly onto the garden. The current owners had great plans to further develop this area which is still an option subject to the usual consents. There is a re-fitted bathroom to the first floor and three good size bedrooms, one of which provides access to the master bedroom skillfully created in the former loft space. Unlike most loft rooms the roof incline causes minimal disruption to head height and with a central staircase provides a bedroom area to one side and a relaxing lounge area to the other. Externally the property has a small frontage with a driveway leading to a detached garage. This has been converted and now offers small entrance hall, cloakroom and studio area. The fully enclosed rear garden is laid to lawn and is further enhanced by a particularly attractive inset ornamental pond and a vast array of maturing plants and shrubs with a timber shed to the rear. An attractive end of chain property which should feature on any 'must view' list.
Witney is a small country town steeped in history, but with good modern amenities and a bustling community life. The Leisure centre caters for a variety of sports and there are excellent schools, including a number of church schools. The Woolgate centre and other smaller shops have been supplemented by a new central shopping precinct with major names such as Marks & Spencers, Debenhams and in addition a multi-screen cinema. Public transport is available from outlying villages and from Witney to Oxford and on to London.
