SITUATION Burford is a picturesque small Cotswold market town with many historical connections. Situated on the Oxfordshire/Gloucestershire border and known as the The Gateway to the Cotswolds, it offers a good range of shopping facilities, local schools, a fine parish Church and a number of public houses and restaurants. High Street chains haven't made a significant impression on Burford, which adds to its uniqueness and helps make it an enduring 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 train service from Charlbury to London Paddington.

DESCRIPTION 176 The Hill is an attractive traditional style Cotswold stone property tucked away in a desirable location off The Hill in Burford. The property offers potential to update and possibly extend further (subject to the necessary consents) and is complemented by a pretty partly walled garden to the rear and the benefit of an attached garage and private parking.
Built in 1984 by a local builder, the interior, which could benefit from some updating, provides spacious and flexible accommodation arranged over two floors. The ground floor comprises an entrance hall with cloakroom off, kitchen, conservatory, utility room, boot room and two good sized reception rooms. The sitting room, with stone fireplace, is a particularly light room with French doors opening to the garden. The dining/family room also with stone fireplace, opens from the kitchen and provides a perfect family gathering/everyday living space. In addition, a conservatory leads off the kitchen and enjoys an outlook over the rear garden. The utility room is fully fitted and links to the rear hall/boot room which connects to the garage, rear garden and front of the house. At first floor level are a spacious dual aspect double bedroom overlooking the garden, a second bedroom with en-suite bathroom, a single bedroom to the front of the house and currently arranged as a study, is the fourth small single bedroom. All of the bedrooms have built in wardrobes, with the en-suite bedroom benefitting from a large walk-in wardrobe. The family bathroom is arranged next to the main bedroom.

OUTSIDE The property is approached over a shared driveway, over which 176 has a right of way and leads to the parking area and the single garage. Providing a very pretty setting arranged at the rear of the house, the partly walled garden is mainly laid to lawn with mature borders, shrubs, a small pond and large patio area leading off the sitting room and kitchen.

DIRECTIONS From the A40 proceed into Burford and continue into the High Street, the entrance to the property will be seen halfway down the hill on the left between a public bench and the 'Free' parking sign on the lamp post. Turn left and drive through the open gates and the property will be seen in the far corner.
