Pretty period cottage in a popular village

Oakleigh is a charming property which retains character features throughout, such as the exposed timber beams, and has been sympathetically brought up-to-date to create a comfortable home for a modern family. The interior is well presented and features neutral décor throughout. The welcoming reception hall features traditional tiled flooring and leads through into the characterful dining room featuring exposed ceiling beams, terracotta tiled flooring, a wood-burner and built-in cabinetry. The country-style kitchen is accessed via the dining room and features solid wood units, a butler sink and a range cooker, as well as space for a large American-style fridge-freezer. The expansive sitting room has an impressive open fireplace with elegant surround. Across the hallway lies the good-sized family room featuring a wood-burning stove. Also located on the ground floor are a useful utility room and separate cloakroom.

Stairs from the reception hall lead down to the converted basement room, currently used as a gym space. On the first floor, the master bedroom enjoys views of the garden and benefits from built-in wardrobes, recessed halogen spotlights and an en suite shower room. Three further bedrooms are serviced by the large family bathroom


The property benefits from a private gated driveway leading to a brick-paved parking area, and provides access to the spacious double-fronted garage. A generously-sized patio provides ample space for al fresco relaxation, dining and entertaining, while a large area of lawn is ideal for children or pets. There is also a very large old barracks building currently used as storage, but with plenty of potential subject to planning permission.


The property enjoys a peaceful position within easy reach of local amenities including a village hall, medical centre and public house. There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the surrounding countryside, while further shops and amenities can be found in the pleasant market town of Daventry just over 8 miles away. There are a number of well-regarded educational facilities in the area at both primary and secondary levels. Rail links from Banbury take you to central London in just an hour, while the M40 is easily reached for access to the wider motorway network.
