This lovely mid-terrace 18th century cottage has an attractive brick and flint facade and occupies a position in the centre of the village with an extended outlook over meadows. The interior retains much of the original timber framework and includes an inglenook fireplace with carved wooden mantelpiece and a boarded floor. A contemporary styled kitchen/dining room was installed recently as well as a similarly styled shower room. On the first floor are two bedrooms with the principal bedroom having fine extended views over meadows. A sizeable garden lies to the rear with a recently installed Victorian style greenhouse and a studio workshop.
Situated within a designated conservation area, Pyrton is a particularly attractive village only one mile to the north of Watlington. It comprises an interesting blend of period properties and a lovely 15th century church. The small town of Watlington provides excellent local shopping and leisure facilities whilst more comprehensive facilities exist in Thame, Oxford, High Wycombe, Princes Risborough, Wallingford and Reading all within a half hour drive. Junction 6 of the M40 is about two miles distant giving easy access to London and the Midlands. There are excellent train services from Oxford, High Wycombe and Princes Risborough all within a 10 to 15 mile drive. The ‘Oxford Tube’ coach service, operating a regular service between London and Oxford, is within 2 miles of the property as are bus services to Heathrow and Gatwick.
