A thatched 17th-century single-level cottage has planning permission for a major two-storey extension.

Converted into a house in the 1960s, the Grade-II listed Studio Cottage in Duns Tew was once used to stable livestock.

Built of local stone, the property includes a sitting room/kitchen, bedroom and bathroom.

The sitting room/kitchen has windows on three sides, French doors and an open fireplace with cast iron surround.

The garden includes a sun terrace and shed and a shared driveway.

Extra land is available to buy through separate negotiation, according to the agents.

Alecia Bradbury, of Savills, said: “The Studio Cottage is a very pretty property and planning permission has been granted for conversion to a two-storey cottage.

“Duns Tew is a popular village with a pub, church and village hall. Primary schools are nearby and there are excellent rail links from Bicester giving access to London and by road via the M40.”

The Studio Cottage is on the market at a guide price of £289,000. For more information, or to arrange a viewing, contact Savills on 01295 228000 or visit savills.com
