Bedrooms: 3
SITUATION A beautiful thatched home in an extremely special corner of rural Oxfordshire, Ivy Cottage is an absolute delight. With three bedrooms, character features and a gorgeous cottage garden, this cottage is a countryside dream. Berrick Salome is a small, quiet village in unspoilt countryside, midway between bustling Watlington (with its delightful independent shops and cafes) and historic Dorchester on Thames. Berrick Salome is also equidistant between Oxford and Henley on Thames (27 minutes drive to each) leaving you to decide between museums or a riverside walk at the weekend!

DESCRIPTION Ivy Cottage is an utterly charming, traditional country cottage that, from the outside, seems magically suspended in time. Today, the cottage enjoys a quiet existence at the heart of this small, but busy, rural community - also home to a popular gastro pub (serving real ales on tap!).

The main entrance to the property is to the front of the house where the garden is also situated. A lovely lawn sits under a canopy of mature trees surrounded by flower borders a keen gardener would much enjoy. There is a delightful paved seating area next to the property itself - complete with old pitcher pump.

Into the house through the rear entrance and there are flagstones on the floor of the 'boot room' with built in bench and coat hooks. Perfect for pulling off muddy wellies after a long walk and drying off damp dogs! The flagstones lead you into a good sized, traditional kitchen with shaker units and a rangemaster stove, framed by two beautiful wooden timbers. The utility room next to the kitchen is a lovely, practical bonus.

The living room is similarly charming with a working woodburning stove sitting in the original inglenook fireplace. The outline of the old bread oven is still visible in the brickwork. Wooden flooring gives this part of the property a warm feel, as does the depth of the window reveals in the old cottage walls. Snug and cosy but with plenty of space, this is a room to enjoy on a cold winter's night with the fire roaring in the hearth.

A dining room area is neatly tucked away behind the inglenook with ample room for a family table and chairs.

The cottage has the huge additional bonus of a 3rd bedroom WITH ensuite which is hidden away through a door behind the dining area. A perfect study or guest room, it's an extremely nice surprise.

Upstairs and….wow! The master bedroom is a showstopper - generous in size with a stunning vaulted ceiling, lined with stripped original beams. Light spills in from the dual aspect windows, giving the room a soft, warm glow. The ensuite is also a beauty, with a roll top bath, large feature ceramic sink, lots of light and again, beams galore. The second bedroom is a good sized double - neat and simple with, again, its own ensuite shower room. It's not often we find character properties like this with an ensuite for each bedroom - in fact, Ivy Cottage may be the first!

A stunning home in a delightful location, Ivy Cottage is a very special cottage and not to be missed.
