Sheep Street, Charlbury
Chipping Norton, OX7 3RR
Merchant House is a beautiful Grade II Listed town house, located on a picturesque street in the Cotswold town of Charlbury. The property has undergone a complete renovation with close attention being made to retain much of the original charm and character – the result being a superb family home.
Behind the attractive square fronted façade, there are three floors of accommodation with all rooms having excellent proportions and bathed in plenty of natural light through the large sash windows. There are three reception rooms with the main sitting room featuring a stunning stone fireplace. The kitchen is a particular highlight with bespoke Four Shires cabinetry and bi-fold doors which create a seamless link between the house and garden. The six bedrooms are all an excellent size and there are four well-appointed bathrooms. There is also a useful cellar.
The garden is a good size for a property in the centre of town and is bordered by stone and brick walls. Mostly laid to lawn, the garden and rear of the house are accessed via a gate to the side of the house which passes over an area suitable for outside dining and entertaining.
Nestling in the picturesque Evenlode Valley, with its desirable setting and attractive architecture – Charlbury offers a balance of town and country living at its finest. Mentioned in the ‘Sunday Times’ as one of the best places to live in 2021 Charlbury is a lively place with most of the facilities of a small town which includes its own railway station.
There is a wide variety of shops and businesses, several welcoming pubs, a selection of cafés, a deli, pharmacy, barber, library, vets and Co-op convenience store with post office. For those who are keen on sport, there are great facilities including large recreation grounds with football pitches and tennis courts, sports centre, cricket club and a bowls club. If that wasn’t enough, Charlbury is home to the Riverside Festival and famous Wilderness music festival which takes place in the grounds of the stunning Cornbury Park.
Another attraction is the proximity to Soho Farmhouse which is seven miles away, merely adding to the appeal of this superb area. Charlbury is equidistant between the popular towns of Burford, Witney and Chipping Norton as well as being within close proximity to Oxford which all offer a variety of shops, an array of dining options and pubs.
There are a number of schools in the area which cater for all ages and include Charlbury Primary School and Windrush Valley School. Pupils can also access Oxford by train for Magdalen College, Oxford High and Headington
