DESCRIPTION 9 Orchard Rise is an attractive Cotswold-stone-built house situated in an enviable location only a few minutes' walk from Burford High Street and the beautiful Windrush Valley. Built in the early 1990s, it is set in an elevated position along a no-through road, on a small development of similar houses. Well-maintained gardens surround the property, rising to terraces at the rear, with views over the nearby countryside from both the house and garden. There is also a double garage and private off-street parking. Already presented in excellent decorative order, planning permission is in place to extend - essentially creating larger ground floor reception space, and upstairs a larger master suite.

This comfortable home is arranged over two floors, with a large boarded attic. Off the ground floor hallway is a double-aspect sitting room with wood burner and French doors to a secluded terrace outside, cloakroom, and a large kitchen-dining room. The kitchen is fitted with a range of units and integrated appliances, including induction hob, microwave and double oven, dishwasher, and fridge-freezer. Off the kitchen is a generous utility room/boot room, also leading to the garden. On the first floor are a master bedroom with en-suite shower room, a further double bedroom, two single bedrooms/study rooms, large airing cupboard and a family bathroom. Each of the bedrooms have fitted wardrobes, and enjoy far-reaching countryside views.

At the front of the house, stone steps lead to the front door and side access to the garden. The well-maintained, mature south-west facing gardens extend to the rear and side of the property. Of particular note are stone steps leading up to terraced areas to the rear, providing a most attractive feature. Enclosed by stone walling, the garden is principally laid to lawn with mature, well-stocked borders with shrubs and trees. Leading off the house is a paved terrace providing an al-fresco dining area. There is a large double garage and driveway to the front providing parking.

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.

DIRECTIONS From the A40 proceed north into Burford and continue into the High Street, take the right hand turn into Swan Lane. At the junction continue straight over and proceed until you come to Orchard Rise on the right. On entering Orchard Rise the road bears round to the left and the property can be found further down on the right hand side.

SERVICES Mains electricity, water and drainage are connected. Electric central heating.
