About this property

TENURE: Freehold

Duck Cottage is a Grade II listed detached cottage believed to date back to around 1650, which has been enlarged and sympathetically refurbished to a high standard by the current owners, who have introduced a contemporary feel whilst still retaining many period features, to create a very pretty, peaceful and comfortable home. Situated in a quiet and secluded location in this sought-after village, it offers a wonderful depth of character and charm set within beautifully established, part-walled gardens of approximately 0.24 of an acre.

Access is via the dining room, a lovely entertaining space with a study area to the side, a character beamed fireplace, cloakroom and coat cupboard. From here a door gives access to the inner hall with further door to the outside. Stairs rise to the first floor. The dual-aspect sitting room is a tranquil room with inglenook fireplace with exposed stonework, Clearview flue-lined wood-burning stove and window seating. A door leads to the vaulted kitchen/breakfast room, which is a pivotal part of this charming character home with its handmade Shaker kitchen units, oak worktops, Villeroy and Boch butler’s sink, oak-shelved walk-in larder, Rangemaster cooker and fridge/freezer (by separate negotiation), underfloor heating and double French doors leading out to the terrace and cottage garden.

To the first floor the air-conditioned principal bedroom is again a lovely room with dual aspect, giving a wonderful concentration of light with views to front and rear. In addition there is a further bedroom with built-in sofa-bed and a beautifully fitted, fully tiled quality bathroom with panel enclosed bath, large shower with mains pressure rainfall showerhead, hand-wash basin incorporating a vanity unit, low level WC and electric underfloor heating. The landing has oak-lined fitted wardrobes and gives access via drop-down steps to the fully-boarded, decorated and carpeted loft with power and lighting, providing a large area of extra storage.

In addition to the main house the external barn incorporates a further room currently used as a guest suite with underfloor heating and cloakroom with WC. The room would also be ideal as a home office or hobby room.

Situation
Surrounded by many pretty villages and with open countryside and rural walks on its doorstep, Hinton-in-the-Hedges is an un-spoilt, attractive and hidden-away village located with easy access to the nearby market town of Brackley. With Waitrose and Tesco supermarkets and many more shops that surround the popular market square, facilities include a butcher, bank, hairdressers and schooling. More comprehensive facilities can be found at nearby Banbury, Buckingham and Bicester which together provide a full range of shopping and sports facilities. The A43 dual carriageway provides access to the M40 and M1 motorways. Commuting by rail is from Banbury or Bicester stations (London Marylebone).

Outside
From the moment you arrive via the five-bar gate and continue on the gravel driveway the gardens open up before you with Duck Cottage centrally positioned within the plot. The gardens to the front are predominantly laid to lawn with a selection of established trees, shrubs and well-planned borders. There is a stone wall boundary to one side and a three-bay oak-framed barn incorporating double garage with power, lighting, WiFi and mezzanine storage. Walking through a gated archway into the rear garden you are met with an abundance of year-round colour and interest from the carefully-designed perennial flower and shrub borders. To one side the summerhouse offers a tranquil seating area with lighting, power and WiFi and there are also three useful storage sheds and a chicken coop. In all the gardens extend to 0.24 of an acre and back onto farmland.

Additional Information
