Chiltern Cottage has attractive stone elevations with flint banding and brick quoins under a clay tile roof. It was built in the 18th century and was extended later that century with the addition of a two storey extension to the rear and a single storey extensiion to its flank.
The18th century interior is largely intact and includes some fine period features including chamfered beams, an inglenook fireplace, and wooden shutters. Of particular note is the attractively proportioned sitting room with generous ceiling height and a lovely farmhouse style kitchen with inglenook fireplace. There is a cellar and a large principal bedroom with en suite shower room.
There is an integral garage and the most delightful and abundantly stocked walled garden that has been the subject of significant re-planning and planting. A stone paved terrace with hot-tub extends from the rear of the cottage to a shaped lawn with deep, well-stocked herbaceous borders and a variety of shrubs and ornamental trees.
Britwelll Salome is a very pretty village and occupies a lovely position at the foot of the Chiltern Hills towards which it enjoys some glorious views and good access to the Ridgeway Path. The village has a fine 12th century church, the reputable Red Lion pub/restaurant and a farm shop. Watlington is not much more than 1.2 miles from the village and provides good local shopping and public amenities. Access to the M40 is about four miles away at Junction 6, providing easy access to the Midlands, London and the regional business centres of Oxford and High Wycombe. Henley on Thames and Wallingford provide more comprehensive local shopping facilities, including Waitrose, and both are no more than 10 miles from the village.
The garden is mainly enclosed by brick and flint walls and has been the subject of significant re-planning and planting in recent years. A stone paved terrace with fitted hot-tub extends from the rear of the cottage to a large shaped lawn with deep, well-stocked, herbaceous borders and a variety of shrubs, fruit and ornamental trees. A gate at the rear of the garden provides access to a footpath that connects with the village cricket green, recreation ground and pub.
Approached from the road via an 'up and over' door. There is internal access to the house, via the kitchen, and a rear window and door to the garden. Light and power points.
