SITUATION Stone house is a stunningly beautiful, traditional thatch cottage in the popular hilltop village of Garsington. With views looking out over the village church, this three bedroomed, detached, Grade II listed property is an absolute gem - filled with history and original features. Garsington sits just 5 miles from the very centre of the city of Oxford with its wealth of museums, shops and restaurants. Garsington itself has a popular village school and pub and a number of historically important properties, dating back several hundreds of years.

DESCRIPTION Stone House is the country cottage many people dream of. A quirky, characterful thatch exterior and carefully preserved historic features. The entrance hall makes a wonderful first impression - vaulted ceilings, original lead light windows and exposed wooden floors all make the heart sing. Walk through the traditional 'latch and brace' door and you enter an elegant sitting room, with its original flags on the floor and spectacular inglenook fireplace. Spanning almost the width of the whole room, this inglenook still retains its original bread oven, raised brick hearth and soot marks from centuries of use! The triple aspect lead light windows let lots of sunshine into this part of the house, which has a wonderfully warm, welcoming feel.

Through the door, past the winding staircase and you enter the dining room. A fascinating chequerboard of quarry tiles makes up the flooring in this good sized room, but the eye is immediately drawn to the molded Tudor-arched stone fireplace.

The kitchen/breakfast room is in a more recent wing of the house, with beautiful newly fitted cream units and a three oven Aga with induction hob. There is a neatly fitted breakfast table into the characterful bay which has lovely window seating overlooking the garden.

Upstairs the charm continues. The master bedroom is extremely generous with dual aspect windows and a staggering vaulted, beamed ceiling. Bedroom two surprises with yet another arched stone fireplace to mirror the one on the ground floor. Bedroom three is another good sized double with separate study/dressing area. Beams abound throughout the upstairs, but the floor is light and warm underfoot, with newly fitted soft cream carpets. The family bathroom offers a roll top bath and separate shower.

The garden is also gorgeous. Generous in size and mostly laid to lawn with a large patio for alfresco lunches, it's a fantastic space to enjoy this tranquil setting. Driveway parking to the side is the last tick in the box for this fantastic property - character, history, space and practicality. Stone House is a sensational find, in a lovely corner of Oxfordshire and will make a wonderful home.
