  • Bedrooms: 2
This charming cottage combines the best of old and new. Boasting a host of period features throughout, it also benefits from every modern convenience.

Sunrise Cottage is set back from the road and benefits from a front garden planted with a variety of mature shrubs, enclosed by a traditional stone wall. An enclosed porch provides useful storage space for outdoor clothes and wellies, with the inner front door giving access to the cosy main reception room, with beamed ceiling and a large open fireplace with log-burner. The log-burner has a back boiler that supplies hot water to the radiators in the rear extension and bedrooms and supplements the electric heating throughout the rest of the house.

The recently refitted kitchen is stylish yet in keeping with the period feel of the property and features a breakfast bar and is open to the rear extension, which benefits from a vaulted ceiling and large skylights, creating a bright and comfortable room currently used for dining. One corner of the extension, next to the kitchen, is currently used as a utility area. The double doors open onto a secluded courtyard garden.

Upstairs are two bedrooms, one of which is currently utilised as a home office. The family bathroom is situated off the landing between the two bedrooms and benefits from natural light.

To the rear of the property is a single detached garage with vehicle access from the green lane behind the property. There is on street parking to the front.

Charlton-on-Otmoor is a quiet rural village peacefully situated on the edge of the 1000-acre Otmoor wetland nature reserve. It has a village pub, a well-regarded primary school, with further amenities in the nearby village of Islip, just 2.5 miles away. Charlton is just ten miles from the centre of Oxford, seven miles south of Bicester, and only five miles from Kidlington, providing easy access to both the M40, A34 and wider road network, as well as national rail, at Oxford Parkway station in Kidlington and at Bicester. The nearby local station at Islip also offers a direct service to London. In addition, there is a regular bus service from the village into Oxford.

Sunrise Cottage is the perfect rural retreat for those who don't want to be too far from civilisation. It's ideal as a first home, or for those wishing to downsize, but with its proximity to one of Oxfordshire's most important nature reserves, it also represents a fantastic investment opportunity, as a comfortable base for regular leisure breaks in Oxford and the surrounding area.
