Quinton Cottage is a delightful cottage with an array of character features which is so indicative of a property of this period. This beautiful home which is built from Cotswold stone was originally three separate cottages, dating back at least 400 years and merged into one property more than a century ago. The property is surprisingly spacious throughout and offers approximately 2697 square feet of living accommodation. The current owners who have lived here for 26 years have enhanced its character and charm by extending the farmhouse style kitchen breakfast room and a spacious sun room which has a westerly aspect. In addition the ground floor comprises an elegant sitting room with fire place, exposed timber floors with cellar beneath (apparently used as a hiding place during the Civil War), reading room with adjoining study. Of particular note is the majestic dining room with window seat and part panelled walls.

To the first floor there is a master bedroom suite with dressing room, ample storage and a good size ensuite bathroom with separate shower. There are two further bedrooms, one with an ensuite shower room, a family bathroom and separate cloakroom completing this well balanced and generous home.


Islip is an attractive and desirable village, famous as the birth place of Edward the Confessor, and just 5 miles outside Oxford with a beautiful church, local infant/primary school, railway station and a health centre. The large and well stocked playground and village cricket pitch together with the village hall/local shop and two traditional pubs create a thriving and welcoming local community. Running through the village is the River Ray and surrounding the village is lovely countryside with an extensive network of footpaths and bridleways. The village benefits from its own rail link to London Marylebone. The M40 can be accessed at (J8) and (J9) and the A34 is approximately 1.5 miles distant. Heathrow Airport is accessible within approximately one hour by car. The historic City of Oxford provides a more comprehensive selection of shopping, leisure and educational facilities.


The well stocked garden enclosed by a stone wall, runs the full length of the house but is not overlooked by any neighbouring property, affording an unusual degree of privacy. The garden commands views over the village church and surrounding properties and enjoys a south westerly aspect which benefits the property with floods of natural light. The current owner commissioned the building of a garden room which offers ideal storage or could be used as a gym or home office. Lastly there is pedestrian access via a garden gate to the rear garden.
