Turret End Cottage is a unique and well-presented home, offering characterful accommodation within a convenient village setting along with a picturesque private garden.
The entranceway with its exposed stonework walls comes into a porch and boot room (which includes the old village well!), leading onto the charming kitchen, which is well-equipped with a range of attractive wooden curved edge cabinetry and has a large butler sink, flagstone flooring and beamed ceiling alongside ample space for dining. An original wooden door leads through to the comfortable sitting room, with double French doors leading to the bright terrace and a built-in desk space beside the feature fireplace. In the sitting room is the impressive spiral staircase within the turret, alongside a useful built-in storage cupboard. The sweeping staircase winds up to the first-floor landing, leading on to two well-proportioned bedrooms, with the principal room benefitting from traditional integrated wardrobes. Both of the bedrooms are also well served by the modern family bathroom, which completes the accommodation.
The property enjoys a private garden within its enviable corner plot, which is well-designed, featuring sections of paved terrace, with a pergola for lounging in the sunshine, an array of shrubbery and appealing planted borders and various stone steps down to sections of level lawn, with several mature trees surrounding and enclosing it. There is a purpose-built summer house and a separate shed to the rear, while a wooden gate among the climbing plant-adorned fencing leads to a gravelled driveway and double carport, offering ample parking for several vehicles and an adaptable floor above. The home also enjoys the use of a shared secret garden to the rear, surrounded by hedging and enclosed by low level fencing, which is largely laid to level lawn and offers the ideal spot for taking in the tranquil, sweeping countryside views.
Turret End Cottage is located in the handsome village of Hempton, which lies approximately one mile west of Deddington, offering an array of day-to-day amenities including local shops, a Post Office, both Health and Community Centres, a library, hotels and eateries, a recreation ground and various churches. An even more comprehensive range of recreational and cultural facilities can be found in both Oxford and Banbury. There is easy access to the M40 motorway from either Junction 10 or 11 and the Kings Sutton mainline railway station in Banbury offers fast and frequent services to London Marylebone in as little as an hour.
The area offers a good selection of noted independent schools including Bloxham, Tudor Hall, St. Johns Priory, Carrdus and Winchester House.
