Upon entering the property, one finds themselves in a spacious entrance hall. At the front of the property, there is an extremely characterful reception room that boasts tiled floors, exposed beams and an open fireplace. There is then a cosy living room that again offers exposed beams and a wood-burning stove, as well as patio doors out onto the rear garden.
Arguably the greatest feature of the ground floor is the lovely kitchen/ dining room that is both of a great size and specification. There is also another wood-burning stove in the dining area.
Lastly at the rear of the property, there is a modern and well-sized utility room, alongside a recently fitted downstairs shower-room that is presented to exacting standards.
Upstairs there are four double bedrooms, all of which we consider to be of a good size and large enough for a double bed. The main bedroom boasts an en-suite shower room, and bedrooms two and three boast built-in wardrobes.
There is also a well presented bathroom which offers a characterful vaulted ceiling, and there is also a separate toilet. From the landing there is also access into the loft room which is of a great size and ideal for storage purposes.
There is a very large driveway to the front which provides parking for several vehicles. At the rear there is a low maintenance rear garden, which offers both patio and lawn, as well as a vast degree of privacy.
There is also a stunning garden room with a wood burning stove, perfect for outdoor entertaining or a home office. Lastly there is a single garage, and a large workshop/ store room.
This characterful cottage offers a fantastic opportunity to own a period home at the heart of the popular village of Chinnor. Benefitting from gas central heating, which is fired by a boiler only fitted a few years ago, as well as double glazing throughout, we strongly recommend an internal viewing of this stunning property.
Chinnor and its surrounding hamlets are part of the ancient chain of villages following the spring line at the foot of the Chiltern escarpment.
With a population of around 7000, the village offers good local shopping facilities, including a supermarket, village store, Post Office, bakery, butchers and a pharmacy. There are also doctors & dentists, hairdressers, sports fields, play areas for children and a selection of public houses, as well as two Indian restaurants, a Chinese takeaway and Fish & Chip shop. A superb village centre has also been created providing a coffee shop, day care for the elderly, a youth centre and a wide range of services and activities.
The M40 motorway (Junction 6) is only three miles from Chinnor and provides excellent road links to both Oxford (15 miles) and London (30 miles). The Oxford Tube stop is extremely popular with commuters.
Princes Risborough station is only four miles away which operates on the Chiltern Line, providing services to both Birmingham Moor Street and London Marylebone. There is also a regular bus service to Thame, High Wycombe and Oxford.
Chinnor is also served by two primary schools, Mill Lane Community Primary School and St Andrews Church of England Primary School. Local secondary schools are Lord Williams in Thame (five miles) and Icknield High School in Watlington (six miles).
