Property Description

This is one of those rare chances to secure a really lovely cottage with huge scope for improvement. Good light and space with large bedrooms, great garden with driveway and garage, plus masses of potential to expand and extend (stpp). The village is one of the best with a brand new school, shop, hall and a well regarded pub.

Move in, modernise and enjoy; or expand (stpp) and elevate to a very different property! Either way, it's a gem.

Bletchingdon is an attractive North Oxfordshire village, set on a plateau overlooking Oxford and Kidlington to the South. Its roots date back to Norman times, evidence of which can most easily be seen in St Giles parish church. Many residents are drawn to the village by its First school. There is a new village hall, a new Co-op store, and a new school, in addition to an active social club, and the pub has recently reopened with plans to expand. Commuting access is excellent with Oxford and Bicester within easy driving distance, Islip and Bicester stations are close by and there are frequent buses running to and from Oxford.

Mymm's Cottage sits on arguably the best road in the village, with nothing opposite it apart from one other period house, and the overall outlook is garden and trees. It likely dates to the 19th century but could be somewhat older, as are most properties on this road. Driving up to it the facade is pleasant, stone with a simple set of traditional, elegant wood windows. But instantly it's evident that the house sits in an unusually useful and mature plot that would seem to be ripe for extension. In discussions with our favourite architect, he feels there is great scope for extension hence if you would like further information please ask and we will put you in touch.

The main entrance is via a single storey, extended porch to the rear. This had provided the cottage with a downstairs cloakroom/ wc, in which the gas heating boiler is located, and a large double cupboard for storage. Entering the kitchen, the room is double aspect hence there's a lot of good natural light flowing in from both sides. While a little dated, the kitchen was clearly well built hence is functional with units down the whole of one side and a peninsular that offers very good work surface space. To the right, the sitting/ dining room is a great place to be. At over 27 feet long it is huge for a cottage with only two bedrooms. At the kitchen end there is an open fireplace. Running down into the centre is an open staircase, added no doubt when the cottage was originally extended many years ago. And past it the sitting room space, as it is currently used, has the wonderful benefit of glazing to three sides, of which there are double doors onto the terrace as well as a window overlooking the garden.

Upstairs, the landing connects to bedrooms at either end. On the right, the first of the two is double aspect again, hence enjoying similar natural light. At the other end, the other bedroom is genuinely large at over 15 feet long, with a gorgeous view over the gardens and towards the park beyond. Wardrobes also run along the entirety of one wall. Serving the pair, the bathroom has had a large shower fitted in recent years, and is a good sized room. However, the airing cupboard adjacent could be easily removed to incorporate more space into the bathroom if desired.

Outside is a joy. The plot provides access right around the house, with a handy path on the right side running round to the door. The terrace on the left sits up against the wider part of the garden where the plot deepens away from the lane with a good range of lovely mature trees and some borders framing a good expanse of lawn. At the left end, the garage at the rear is detached and has power already connected. And in front of it is a driveway for two cars, with a gate to the front.
