DESCRIPTION

101 The Causeway is thought to date back to the early 1300s with additions which have been added since to include, by the current owners the incorporation of a barn to the rear of the property to provide much enlarged accommodation. Many of the rooms still exhibit their oak framing with beamed walls and ceilings together with a wonderful fireplace in the snug. The boot room to the rear of the snug has a full height vaulted ceiling which has the curved exposed stone reverse of this fireplace and is a superb feature. The accommodation within the house extends to over 2800 sq ft and provides three well-proportioned reception rooms in addition to a well fitted kitchen/breakfast room with French doors out on to the gardens. There are five bedrooms on the first floor accessed from two staircases together with a study located on the first floor of the barn which is accessed via its own staircase.

OUTSIDE

The property is set back from the main causeway and there is off street parking immediately to the side of the property. Further on street parking is available directly in front of the property. The gardens are of good size with a formal landscaped patio area with gravel, inset paving, pond and box hedging immediately adjacent to the house with a large expanse of lawn beyond with a central pergola dividing the lawn from a very productive vegetable patch where there is a greenhouse. A gate at the end of the garden leads to a further small area under the ownership of the property.

LOCATION

The property is located on The Causeway which is nearly a mile long and is thought to date back to the middle of the 13th century. It houses many fine and notable Grade II listed buildings. Steventon is one of Oxfordshire's prime villages with a large village green and cricket ground and has a thriving community with a village shop, bakery and tea room, primary school and 14th century church.

Didcot Parkway is also about 4 miles away connecting to London Paddington in approx. 45 minutes. The nearby A34 provides an easy connection to Oxford to the north and to Newbury and the M4 to the south. Schooling in the area is also excellent with a wide range of state and private schools to include Abingdon School, Our Ladies, The Manor Prep School and the school of St Helen and St Catherine, all of which are in Abingdon and St Birinus and Didcot Girls School, both in Didcot.
