SITUATION 'A dream thatched cottage'. We don't find many country cottages more perfect than Limmeridge. A detached three bedroomed, Grade II listed thatched house in the popular village of Chalgrove, this waterside home stops you in your tracks. Chalgrove is a large village in rural Oxfordshire, just 9 miles from the centre of the historic city of Oxford and just over 10 minutes drive to the M40 with fast connections to London. The village itself has a wealth of traditional cottages, a thriving local community, a village primary and plenty of wonderful countryside walks right on the doorstep.

DESCRIPTION Limmeridge is a beautiful and historic thatched cottage, with a chequerboard of beams on its characterful exterior. Built in the 1600's, it boasts the original timber framed structure and inside, there are a wealth of character features which fill the home with a quirky charm.

On first approach, Limmeridge is striking and certainly makes you take a second look. A slice of history, sitting proud in its detached plot, it's the traditional cottage many home owners dream of. The large thatched roof has been recently replaced and the exterior of the property is well maintained and 'picture postcard perfect', set back from the road behind its picket fence.

The gravel driveway is large enough to park at least three cars and there is a large garage/workshop which provides valuable additional storage.

The ground floor comprises of a kitchen, a separate dining room and a sitting room. The dining room in the centre of the property and is large enough for a family sized table and currently also houses a piano. The sitting room is a warm, welcoming space with stunning lead-windows. Attractive bricks cover the floor and (as with the rest of the house) original beams cover the ceiling. All eyes are drawn, however, to the huge inglenook fireplace with traditional wood burning stove at its heart. The outline of an old bread oven can still be seen in the brickwork and the original inglenook seat is still in place where, in centuries gone by, families would have kept warm on cold winters nights. Designed as a place to gather, this room still very much feels like the heart of the home.

The kitchen, by contrast is a modern shaker style - high specification with underfloor heating and a quartz worktop, it complements the historic property beautifully and the room is still large enough for a breakfast table.

The ground floor also houses a separate shower room and WC.

Upstairs, the property has three double bedrooms, all spacious and all with timber beams and quirky corners. The ceilings, while pitched under the large traditional thatch, still offer a generous head height. All of the bedrooms are lucky enough to feature more of the lovely leaded light windows. The family bathroom has a bath and separate WC.

Outside, the garden is delightful. A large lawned area is framed by attractive, country style borders and mature trees offering shade in the summer. A babbling brook (a feature of this village) actually runs alongside the garden adding yet MORE charm to this already stunning countryside property.

A rare opportunity to buy a slice of Grade II listed village history, Limmeridge is not just a museum piece but a warm, welcoming, spacious home with charming outside space for the whole family to enjoy.
