Beautifully modernised period cottage in a popular Oxfordshire village.

A very pretty and deceptively large Horton stone cottage that has been thoughtfully modernised throughout to offer a very comfortable and beautifully presented home. The exterior of the house has been re-pointed with all the windows and doors having been replaced or restored. Internally all the rooms have been individually re-designed.

On the ground floor you enter the cottage into a small light hallway leading to both the Kitchen and sitting room. The sitting room has a brick fireplace with a Carron wood burner stove and benefits from being well proportioned with a dual aspect offering ample natural light and views to the rear garden and to the front.

The kitchen, with a characterful barn door has been completely transformed with all new wall and base units that are modern but in keeping with the cottage’s character. The bay window offers a natural seating area for a breakfast/ dining area overlooking the garden and the integrated appliances ensure that this space is both practical as a kitchen and entertaining area. Leading from the kitchen there is a spacious utility area that leads to a back door out onto the garden and a separate wc.

From the hallway there are stairs leading to a pretty landing with space to have a home office space or reading area as it benefits from a large picture window, and with access to the well-designed family bathroom. There are two double bedrooms, with the master bedroom having an en-suite shower room and built in cupboards. Both the bedrooms have retained many period features including exposed stonework.


There is parking for one car at the front of the property and with additional space at the end of the drive. There are mature borders to the front of the property and the enclosed rear garden is extensive, primarily laid to lawn and with field views to the village at the end.


Wardington is a picturesque stone-built village located in unspoilt undulating countryside on the border of north Oxfordshire. Amenities within the village include a parish church, public house and a newly-built village hall. The village is well located for state and private schools including St John’s Priory School, The Carrdus at Overthorpe, Bloxham School, Tudor Hall School and Winchester House. Communication links are excellent with a railway station at Banbury and the M40 motorway at Junction 11.


From Strutt & Parker’s Banbury office, turn left onto Horse Fair (A361). After 0.2 mile turn right onto Castle Street, then after a further 0.2 mile at the roundabout take the first exit onto Cherwell Drive. Follow this road for 0.3 mile then turn left onto Concord Avenue (A4260). After 0.4 mile at the roundabout take the 3rd exit onto Hennef Way (A422). Stay on this road for 4 miles then at the roundabout take the 2nd exit onto A361. Just before the village of Wardington there is a right turn onto Thorpe Road. The cottage may be found on the right forty yards beyond the left turn onto Mount Pleasant.
