The Plough House is situated in a most desirable setting, with the amenities of the pretty village of Little Milton close at hand yet surrounded by attractive countryside. The position is ideally suited to the commuter, with the M40 and A40 within easy reach. The area is leafy and green and is renowned for its countryside, while central Oxford is approximately 20 minutes' drive away.

The handsome sandstone property is believed to be Victorian and has a wealth of character features, with a secluded and private feel to the home which makes it an ideal retreat. The rooms are generously proportioned throughout and offer great potential for at home entertaining, with both formal and informal reception spaces and four good-size double bedrooms upstairs. The large family kitchen opens out onto a fabulous garden terrace.

The ground floor has a large main reception space with attractive fireplace, a second reception/dining room, a grand kitchen/dining room, utility room and a guest cloakroom. To the first floor are four double bedrooms and three bathrooms. To the rear are large attractive gardens, ample parking on the driveway and garaging

The house is quite substantial in size, with almost 3000 sq ft over two floors and the high ceilings, spacious rooms and generous windows characteristic of the era and affording excellent natural light throughout the home. Character features abound, including exposed beams, brick fireplaces, solid wood latched doors and mullioned windows surrounded by decorative quoins. The bathrooms are all modern and have been recently updated in a contemporary style. The 'blank canvas' neutral colour scheme throughout provides the ideal backdrop for personalisation and cosmetic updates.

The layout of the home is well suited to family life, with space for family gatherings in the big, open plan kitchen, plus a pantry and a laundry room. The house is equally well set up for formal occasions, with the 29ft reception room having a wood-burning stove to make winter evenings feel cosy, plus a wealth of space. The separate sitting room is a great space as a snug or TV room, or perhaps a personal office for working from home or a private study.

The ground floor is entered onto a wide and welcoming hallway, with a cloakroom with w.c., the laundry/utility room and sitting room situated off to one side. The main reception room has two doors, while the open plan kitchen/breakfast room is situated up a couple of steps and is a very generous room, easily accommodating a dining table and a sitting area if desired, to serve as the 'hub' of the family home. There are two separate staircases rising to the first floor, where the bedrooms are arranged together around a spacious landing. The principal bedroom is a good size and has built-in wardrobes as well as an en suite bath/shower room, while an additional en suite bedroom is ideal for guests. The two additional bedrooms share a family bathroom.

The property is set within expansive mature gardens, with a public footpath that can be accessed directly from the rear garden.
