Bedrooms: 2
Formerly the Old Dairy to Chacombe House (circa 1875), the property was converted in 2003 and then extensively refurbished in 2014, creating a beautifully appointed and light filled cottage with high ceilings and stone features. Entry is through the large glazed hardwood domed porch; a key feature of the cottage which immediately creates the light filled ambiance which flows throughout the property. The dual aspect open plan sitting, dining and kitchen area has laminate flooring throughout and French doors and windows providing views over the expansive grounds. The light, bright kitchen has a range of base and eye level units and fitted appliances, to include washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, single oven and hob. Both bedrooms have large built in wardrobes and the dual aspect principal bedroom has feature windows, and a fully tiled ensuite wet room with a mains' operated shower. The cottage has a sunny private paved courtyard at the front and a small dining terrace at the rear. A combi-boiler provides heating and hot water with communal metered oil.

125 year lease; 103 years remaining. Service charge £201.20 and £10 ground rent per calendar month and this covers buildings' insurance, water

rates, window cleaning, communal laundry costs and grounds' upkeep. Council Tax - Band E. Local authority is West Northamptonshire District Council


The established communal part- walled gardens feature sweeping lawns, colourful rhododendron displays, two ponds and a large raised terrace.

There is reserved parking immediately outside the cottage for one vehicle and several other off road parking areas for additional vehicles. The grounds are home to a host of wildlife and subject to the approval of the management committee, pets are permitted. Within Chacombe House itself, there is a well appointed owners' social lounge, together with a communal laundry which provides further washing machines and a number of tumble driers. The cottage benefits from having additional storage; a heated lockable cage is provided in the basement of the main house. The cottage has a 24 hour emergency call system and this, together with a variety of optional services provided by the adjacent care home, provides an excellent Independent Living opportunity.


Junction 11 of the M40 is only 2 miles from the property with the mainline train station (Marylebone) an additional two miles distant.

Chacombe village offers a local public house and has a bus service into Banbury. Nearby Middleton Cheney has a good selection of small shops, post office and a café, with Banbury offering more extensive shopping and leisure facilities.
