Located in the heart of picturesque Burford, Bank House is a charming Grade II Listed property in an excellent position close to the shops and a few minutes' walk from the River Windrush and lovely countryside walks. Believed to date from the 15th century, this delightful property has an enormous amount of charm and character throughout with many period features including original doorways, windows, exposed beams and flagstone floor.

Accessed via a private passageway and arranged over four floors, the accommodation is deceptively spacious. On the ground floor, the part-glazed front door opens onto a flagstone entrance hall with space for hanging coats and with an impressive original doorway, part of the old bank but no longer in use. To the right, a door leads into the generous and welcoming sitting room with original ceiling beams and a large and attractive west facing sash window overlooking the courtyard to the rear. The room has a painted fire surround fitted with a wood burning stove. At the far end of the room a spiral staircase leads down to the kitchen/dining room with beamed ceiling, stone floor and with double doors opening onto stone steps leading up to the courtyard. The fully fitted and painted kitchen has a large electric oven with 5 ring hob, stainless steel splash back and cooker hood, a double butler sink and integrated fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. Stone steps at the far end of the kitchen lead up to the original bank vault, currently used as a larder.
From the hallway a period staircase fitted with a carpet runner and brass stair rods winds its way up past panelling, exposed beams and a secret stair cupboard to the landing with a large sash window. Straight ahead is the master bedroom with high ceiling and light from the west facing sash windows which over the rear courtyard.

This room has a wooden fireplace with slate hearth and a fitted wardrobe. The en-suite bathroom has a white bath with tongue and groove side panel and period chrome taps and shower and a separate loo with side window and wide sill.
The staircase continues up to the top floor landing and in to the second good size en-suite bedroom with high ceiling and a sash window and charming window seat plus a casement window with wide sill to the side. The en-suite shower room houses the airing cupboard with hot water cylinder and immersion heater.

Outside there is an allocated parking space to the rear with gated access along a stone pathway to the house. Stone steps from the kitchen lead up to the charming part-walled west facing gravelled courtyard with original stone well, now secured with a metal grille.

SITUATION Burford is a quintessential Cotswold market town with many historical connections. Situated on the Oxfordshire/Gloucestershire border and known as 'The Gateway' to the Cotswolds, it offers a range of shopping facilities, local schools, a fine Parish Church and a number of public houses. High Street chains have yet to make a significant impression on Burford, which adds to its character and helps make it an appealing place to live, work and visit. The town nestles in the Windrush Valley surrounded by beautiful countryside, yet is within easy reach of Oxford and Cheltenham, both of which provide the main cultural and shopping facilities for the area. There are good road communications to London via the A40/M40 and a direct train service from Charlbury to London-Paddington.
