- Semi Detached House
A beautiful chocolate box 17th century thatched cottage enjoying a prestigious position, overlooking the village green in sought after Marsh Baldon. The cottage, Grade II listed, retains many of its original period features including exposed beams, inglenook fireplace, bread oven and elm floorboards upstairs. The property has been extended on the ground floor and offers an additional entrance and potentially versatile self contained living area.
The ground floor comprises a hall with study foyer, leading to the double aspect characterful living room/dining room with stunning inglenook fireplace and feature window seat. There is also a double bedroom with vaulted ceiling and a shower room off the entrance hallway. The farm-house style kitchen has a comprehensive range of mix and match wall and base cupboards, finished with an oak block worktop and Fired Earth tiles. French doors lead out to the south facing and private garden.
Upstairs there are two double bedrooms (one currently laid out as a single with study area) and the family bathroom which gives access to the attic space.
Externally, the south facing rear garden is mainly laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs, enclosed by fencing.
Marsh Baldon is considered one of the most popular villages in South Oxfordshire. The village is located in attractive countryside about six miles south of the city of Oxford and centred around the 24-acre gated village green, where the local cricket club play during the summer, an attractive church and a Church of England primary school. Many of the properties surround the village green including the local pub, The Seven Stars, which is a successfully owned and run community public house known locally for its good food and hospitality. The renowned dining pub, The Mole, is situated in the nearby village of Toot Baldon.
