A delightful secluded single storey 3-4 bedroom cottage with pretty gardens situated in the heart of this attractive sought after Cotswold village

SITUATION Close to the Gloucestershire/Oxfordshire border, Filkins is a highly sought-after and quintessentially pretty rural village with a mix of mainly period stone cottages and houses. Situated away from any main roads, it has a range of excellent amenities, including a public house, the Five Alls; an outdoor swimming pool, open from May to September; and nearby is the village shop, post office and bowls club. The former village school is now a pre-school nursery.

The local towns of Carterton, Lechlade, Burford and Witney provide a range of everyday and specialist shops, as well as pubs, restaurants and hotels. Further facilities are found in Swindon, Chipping Norton, Oxford and Cheltenham all of which are within daily commuting distance.

DESCRIPTION Located in this delightful village setting, Banham Cottage is a charming secluded single storey 3-4 bedroom cottage built in 1968 for, it is believed, the headmistress of the village school by Sir John Cripps, a major benefactor to the village. This is a lovely home providing comfortable and spacious accommodation. The house is surrounded by private mature gardens, adding to its overall charm.

Approached via a gravel driveway with parking for several cars, a paved pathway leads to the front door, opening into the tiled entrance hall with cloakroom. Off the hall are two good-sized double bedrooms, the family bathroom with ceramic tiled floor and traditional white suite, and a further single bedroom. To the front is the dining room leading to both the sitting room and kitchen. The double aspect sitting room is a well-proportioned, light and airy room with open fireplace and decorative alcoves. Overlooking the garden to the rear, the well-appointed kitchen, with ceramic tiled floor has a range of pine wall and base units and includes electric cooker, fridge, freezer and dishwasher. The adjoining boot room/utility room, including washing machine and drier, has a large airing cupboard and back door to the garden. Beyond is the garden room/family room/4th bedroom with double doors to the garden. Access to the large boarded attic is via hatches in two bedrooms. Throughout, the house is fitted with PVC double-glazed windows.

The pretty and private mature garden is made up of areas of lawn with well stocked borders and a variety of shrubs and trees including fruit trees. A gravelled area off the house provides a seating and al fresco dining area, and the driveway provides ample parking space.

DIRECTIONS From Burford take the A361 towards Lechlade. After about 4 miles take the left hand turn signposted to Filkins. Proceed into the centre of the village, and turn right into Cross Trees Lane situated just before Cotswold Woollen Weavers. The house can be found on the right hand side, identified by our For Sale board.
