Property Details

Church Cottage, a 3 double bedroom Grade 2 listed detached thatched cottage, was built around 1690 and it is one of the most historical buildings within the Oxfordshire village of Chalgrove. The cottage was fully re-thatched in 2007. Positioned opposite a country track that leads to the medieval St Mary’s Church, the cottage is situated on a very quiet side street just walking distance from the village shops, post office, doctors surgery, primary school (rated Good in 2018) and village pubs. The cottage has a welcoming cottage style front garden, with low brick wall and cobbled path that leads to the access around to the rear garden and also to the garage/workshop (lights and power) with off road parking for 1 vehicle. Additional off-road parking is available adjacent to the cottage. On entering the cottage into the dining room you are instantly warmed by its charm and character – with oak beams, latch doors and quirky features such as the historic bread oven. An enormous open fireplace with brick flooring adds to the charm. The sitting room is off the dining area and is equally appealing. Solid oak flooring has been laid and down-lighters highlight the beams throughout the room. An open fire (fully usable) makes for a great feature. The chimney was fully lined by the current owner and meets with all fire regulations. A large sash window allows light in and any privacy from the occasional passing neighbours is guaranteed with the screening by a 300 year old yew tree in the front garden. Overlooking the back garden is the 4th bedroom / study. This could be a useful room for any visitors with mobility issues, as it is adjacent to the downstairs bathroom. The kitchen is also off the dining area and has a feature beam and characterful stone wall. There is space for a fridge freezer and other appliances, such as washing machine / dishwasher, can be found in the utility / boot room behind the kitchen. A double oven electric aga style cooker comes with the cottage. This is approx. 5 years old. An extra downstairs toilet and basin is also located at the rear of the kitchen. Climbing the curved staircase upstairs you will be instantly surprised by how lofty the upper rooms are. The top stair wooden banister is detachable to allow for easy access for moving furniture. The third (and smallest) double bedroom is to your left at the top of the stairs. This overlooks the side of the cottage. All bedrooms have stripped wooden floorboards and latch doors. There are useful double fitted wardrobes and also access to the loft hatch. There is reasonable loft space for boxes and storage items. The second spacious double bedroom has feature stripped wooden beams and faces the front of the cottage. There is ample space for free standing wardrobes and cupboards. The large, bright master bedroom is dual aspect and has older stripped wooden floorboards. The rooms is large enough to hold large double wardrobes, a sofa, chair and dressing table. You will not be short on space! Any additional furniture / cupboards can be easily put on the large landing area. This space could also be used as a study area if required.
