DESCRIPTION Approached via a private lane in a secluded wooded setting on Boars Hill, Gardeners Cottage is one of three existing estate cottages built on the former Youlbury Estate by Arthur Evans, keeper of the Ashmolean Museum who excavated the Knossos on Crete. Set well within its plot, Gardeners Cottage offers well-presented and spacious accommodation in a sought-after Oxfordshire location.
Renovated and extended by the current owners, the accommodation comprises: entrance hall, modern open-plan kitchen/breakfast room with Bosch appliances and French doors opening onto the patio (perfect for al-fresco dining), separate utility, WC, sitting room and dining room on the ground floor. On the first floor there is a spacious landing which leads off to the master bedroom with dressing area and en suite, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom. Stairs lead up to a further bedroom on the second floor that would also be ideal as a home office. There is ample storage throughout the property, notably eaves storage on the second floor and a basement cellar.
To the exterior, a gravelled driveway leads to a car port providing generous parking. The garden is circa a third of an acre and lies predominantly to the side of the property, laid to lawn and planted with a variety of trees, plants and shrubs. Gigaclear broadband is available.
SITUATION Boars Hill is a sought-after residential area famous for its wooded rural setting, just three miles from the centre of Oxford and provides a wide range of shopping, recreational and educational facilities. Boars Hill is well served by communications with access to the A34 and Oxford ring road, connecting to the M4 and M40 motorways, with the regional centres of Newbury and Swindon also within easy reach. Communications by rail are also excellent with fast trains from either Oxford or Didcot to London Paddington taking about fifty minutes and from Oxford Parkway to London Marylebone in about sixty minutes.
