A delightful Grade II Listed period cottage tucked away at the end of this no-through lane enjoying views over farmland requiring modernisation set in gardens of approximately of half an acre.

DESCRIPTION A delightful Grade II Listed cottage set in grounds of approximately half an acre requiring modernisation. Yew Tree Cottage is believed to date back to the mid/late 18th century with latter extensions in the 19th and 20th centuries. The cottage enjoys an idyllic position set at the end of a no-through lane with views over open farmland on the edge of this highly regarded south Oxfordshire village. The property would make a wonderful family home, but would equally make a superb weekend retreat. In brief the accommodation comprises a small reception hall, dining room, study, charming sitting room with inglenook fireplace and exposed stone wall, snug, cloakroom, kitchen and utility room on the ground floor. The first floor enjoys three super double bedrooms, generous single bedroom and family bathroom. There are stone steps leading to a cellar from the sitting room where a well can be found. Outside the driveway leads to a parking area for several vehicles and a double garage. The northern edge of the property is bounded by a small stream, and the southern edge backs on to farmland. The garden area is divided in to many sections including flower beds, vegetable garden, lawn and a area somewhat overgrown. Opportunities like this don't come along very often and shouldn't be missed.

LOCATION Toot Baldon is situated between the A4074 and the B480, 7.5 miles to the south of Oxford City. The village church dates back to the 13th century, but was restored in 1865. Originally the church of England primary school was located in the village, but in 1873 it moved to its present location on the green in Marsh Baldon (1.4 miles). The well known 'Mole' public House is located within a short stroll and slightly further afield is the community owned Seven Stars in Marsh Baldon. Toot Baldon is ideally placed for access to both Oxford railway station (7 miles) and Didcot Parkway (9 miles), both providing direct rail links to London.

DIRECTIONS Leave Oxford via the A4074 towards Wallingford. Proceed along this road to the village of Nuneham Courtenay, and take the left turn at the end of the village sign posted Marsh Baldon. Upon entering the village follow the road around to the left and past the village green. Follow this road for approximately 0.80 miles and turn right down the unmarked lane. Follow this lane to the 'old school' and turn 90 degrees right in to a narrower lane and proceed to the end where the property will be found on the right.
