SITUATION The charming village of Leafield lies within an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the edge of the Cotswolds, The village has a thriving community with an extremely well-reputed village pub, a village primary school, church, village hall, a post office and shop as well as other local amenities.

Charlbury railway station is 5 miles away with a regular rail link to London Paddington.

DESCRIPTION Overlooking The Greens in the heart of Leafield, and situated in a conservation area, The Old Store is a charming double fronted stone house full of character. Previously called The Three Cottages, parts of the house are believed to originally date back to the 1800s. More recently and until the 1980s, the house was used as the village shop.

Arranged over three floors, the house provides deceptively spacious accommodation with the potential to develop further. On the ground floor, the stable front door opens onto the entrance hall with reception rooms to either side. On the left is a large sitting room with bay window with views to the front of the property. An original external stone wall has been exposed revealing old oak beams above. The room has stripped floorboards and a multi fuel stove. The kitchen beyond, also with a bay window to the front, has an integrated oven and hob and is fitted with a range of base and wall units providing ample storage. Leading off the kitchen is the garden room which is currently used for formal dining with glass doors opening onto the pretty walled terrace and garden. The inner storage area with large bookshelves has an iron spiral staircase leading up to a bedroom with velux window and stunning far reaching views beyond. Also on the ground floor is the art room, previously the kitchen and once part of the original barn, a shower and downstairs cloakroom. Through a latch door and up a short flight of stairs is a double bedroom with exposed beams. A further downstairs reception room off the entrance hall to the right provides a cosy but well-proportioned room with an open fireplace with wooden surround. The main staircase leads up to the first floor where 2 double bedrooms and a family bathroom can be found, whilst on the second floor is a further good size en suite bedroom with vaulted ceiling and stunning views to the rear.

The house is complemented by a south facing garden with a walled terrace area planted with roses and vines which leads onto the enclosed lawn beyond with a variety of shrubs and fruit trees, a small pond and gazebo. A small garage adjoins the house.
