Formerly two individual cottages until the 1950's, and dating back as far as the 1600's, 'Howletts' has been under the same ownership for nearly 45 years to date and in our opinion presents a fantastic opportunity to acquire a rare property in village of Chinnor, Oxfordshire.
Whilst the property is in need of some modernisation, the property boasts double glazed windows (all fitted within the last 10 years), as well as gas central heating and a fuseboard that is approximately 12 years old.
In our opinion, the outbuildings at 'Howletts' would also make for a fantastic home office or gym room, as well as storage space or a workshop.
'Howletts' is situated on the edge of the ever popular village of Chinnor, Oxfordshire, and occupies a generous plot with fantastic views.
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 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.
