Property description

A unique and spacious village house set in mature walled gardens.

Description
Brock Cottage presents a unique opportunity to purchase a spacious and versatile family property situated in an enviable position adjacent to Foxholes Nature Reserve yet easily accessible to Kingham station providing a fast train service to London Paddington.

Once the gardener’s cottage for nearby Foxholes House, the building is believed to date to the early 1900’s. The property has been improved over time and extended to create the unique and eclectic home you see today.

The internal accommodation flows from the light and bright entrance hall which has vaulted ceilings and oak hardwood flooring. The hub of the house is the spacious and light-filled open plan kitchen/dining room. Here there are roof lights and floor-to-ceiling glazed windows with sliding doors that offer access to the paved terrace and gardens beyond. There is a range of wall and base units, a triple oven and gas hob and space for white goods. The kitchen/dining room can accommodate a 10-seater table with chairs as well as sofas around the wood burning stove. Steps down from the kitchen/dining room lead to a well-appointed utility. To the front of the property is a well-proportioned family room with French doors that open onto the gardens and an open fireplace with fitted cupboards to either side.

A short flight of stairs with four steps lead from the kitchen/dining room down into the light-filled sitting room. This excellent room has a vaulted ceiling, wood-burning stove and kitchenette area. A six-seater dining table and chairs can easily be accommodated. The front wall is made up of sliding glass doors which lead out to the front garden and double doors out to the rear. A flight of steep handmade stairs lead up to a mezzanine/loft area with restricted headroom.

The bedrooms are all located on the ground floor. The principal bedroom has French doors to the garden and an en suite bathroom. Bedroom two has a Jack and Jill night cloakroom and a free-standing bath in the bedroom itself. There are a further four bedrooms, three with French doors opening onto the gardens, and two well-fitted and colourful family bathrooms. Steep stairs lead from bedroom three to a second mezzanine/loft which is ideal as additional sleeping space, reading nook or storage. The majority of the bedrooms have fitted wardrobes.

Brock Cottage sits centrally in its plot of approximately one acre and the garden is predominately laid to lawn with an abundance of mature trees, shrubs and flowering plants. There are fruit trees, including medlar, cherry and apricot, quince and greengage trees, and the pergola over the rear terrace is planted with wisteria and vines and is perfect for al fresco dining. Either side of the property are small streams that eventually flow into the River Evenlode and there is a small footbridge accessing the woodland area that is dense with snowdrops and bluebells. There are two timber storage sheds at the entrance to the drive which provides parking for a number of vehicles
