Rose Cottage comprises a pretty three storey period home situated on the very edge of the village with far-reaching views over countryside to the rear. The property is not thought to be listed but does lie within a Conservation Area. It occupies a lovely garden and has been sympathetically extended to the side and rear, providing deceptively spacious ground floor accommodation. The property would benefit from refurbishment but will provide an attractive proposition for many buyers.

The ground floor accommodation includes an entrance porch and hall leading to an impressive sitting room with a pair of front sash windows and a large inglenook fireplace with wood burner. There is a dining area with double doors on to the garden and stairs rise to the first floor. There is a second reception room with cloakroom and a kitchen/breakfast room completing the ground floor.

On the first floor, the master bedroom enjoys a dual aspect with lovely views, and an en suite bathroom. Bedroom two has a built-in double wardrobe and there is a family bathroom. On the second floor are two further bedrooms.

Outside, the property is approached over a gated gravelled driveway allowing parking for several vehicles. The gardens are a particular feature of the property, being well tended and affording the property a high degree of privacy. To the rear is a wide patio and extensive and well stocked flower and shrub borders. There is a further elevated area of garden to the front/side which may allow space for a double garage subject to the necessary consents. This may replace the single garage already in existence.

The property has a gas heating system to radiators.

AMENITIES Buckland is a picturesque village, situated approximately 14 miles south west of Oxford. The village was originally built to house the workers of the Buckland House Estate and falls within a conservation area. Within the village is a lively village hall, a Norman church, a popular public house/restaurant, The Lamb at Buckland, and a much sought after primary school. St Hugh's Preparatory School is approximately a mile away and there are convenient bus and coach links to the independent schools in Oxford and Abingdon and to Faringdon Community College.

Good road links provide access to Faringdon, Wantage, Abingdon, Oxford and Swindon, which lead to the M40 and M4 motorways respectively. There are mainline rail services from Oxford, Didcot Parkway and Swindon and a frequent bus service from Swindon to Oxford and back.
