Bedrooms: 2
An exceptional detached cottage that has been sympathetically renovated and extended, set peacefully located down a private lane.

White Cottage dates back to the 17th Century when it was used as a barn for a nearby small holding, and was subsequently changed into a cottage in the 1890s. In more recent years the cottage has been totally renovated and extended to create this splendid and abundantly charming cottage set neatly in its own private grounds. Blending the eminent period charm with modern, the property has a newly built kitchen/family room at the far end with under floor heating that continues through to a well appointed utility room and downstairs WC. There are two reception rooms within the original cottage where you will find original flagstone floors, two log burners and a beautiful elm staircase. There are shutters on the windows throughout and recessed window seats. The first floor provides a bedroom at either end of the house, both with built-in wardrobes, and a bathroom and airing cupboard in between.

The private grounds are accessed from the lane via remote controlled electric gates with CCTV intercom. There is a driveway to the front with space for several cars, as well as a garage that is equipped with electricity and lights. The terrace immediately adjacent to the kitchen is laid with the same Dijon stone tiles as the kitchen, linking it seamlessly with the outside dining space. There is a small terraced lawn area around the cottage to the rear where there is a paved area for a clothes airer and a potting shed with power and light.

Situated about four miles to the north of the city of Oxford, the village of Yarnton has amenities which include a primary school, village hall, a public house, doctors' surgery, post office/shop and garden centre. The nearby historic town of Woodstock offers day-to-day facilities, with Oxford providing for cultural, sporting and shopping needs. Blenheim Palace with its landscaped parkland is a local attraction to visit and for walks. Communication is excellent with Oxford Parkway station close by (about three miles) serving London Marylebone from about fifty six minutes. The M40 is reached via the A34 and there is a regular bus service into Oxford from the top of the lane. Yarnton is also well located for a wide selection of state and independent schools in and around the city of Oxford. (All times and distances are approximate).
