Westcot Lodge is an attractive property located in the centre of this sought-after Oxfordshire village. Believed to date back to the late 18th Century with later additions, the property has been renovated by the current owner to create the most superb home with close attention paid to retaining much of the original character and charm. Westcot Lodge has a warm and inviting feel, with generously proportioned rooms - ideally suited for a family and those who enjoy entertaining. Highlights include the impressive 24 ft, vaulted kitchen/dining room which is very much the heart of the home. Fitted with a Hunt Bespoke Kitchen and Rako Lighting, the quality and attention to detail is evident. There are bi-folding doors at the far end of the kitchen/dining room which open onto a terrace, perfect for outside dining and entertaining. A door leads through to a stylish cloakroom and utility. The entrance hall is a large space with an attractive flagstone floor and is versatile in how it could be used. The snug has a particularly cosy feel, with wooden floorboards, a large inglenook fireplace with log burning stove and wooden panelling merely adding to the charm. There is a useful cellar and garage with access to the main house.
The five bedroom, four bath/shower room layout over two floors makes for comfortable family living and the quality of craftsmanship and fittings continues with a number of Lefroy Brooks fittings in the bath/shower rooms as well as electric underfloor heating and beautifully restored original elm floor boards on the top floor.
The garden is mostly laid to lawn and interspersed with a number of trees. It has a south-easterly aspect and is enclosed by a wooden fence.
Equidistant between Chipping Norton, Banbury, Bicester and Oxford is this popular Oxfordshire village. Surrounded by open countryside, the village has a vibrant community supporting a pub, post office, restaurant, village Primary School, village stores, post office and an active sports and social club with playground. There is a community bus service ‘Our Bus Bartons’ operating services to Banbury, Oxford and surrounding villages and provides a link to local health centres, supermarkets and railway stations.
Occupying the highest point of Oxfordshire, Chipping Norton is a bustling market town located around 18 miles northwest of Oxford in the Cotswold Hills. Like many Cotswold towns, Chipping Norton is incredibly pretty, many of the original houses around the market place were rebuilt in the 18th century with fashionable Georgian frontages. The town’s wealth grew through the local wool trade and today is renowned for its antique shops and diverse shopping, including a regular market. Chipping Norton retains a robust living, working market town atmosphere, there is a good choice of places to eat, supermarkets and top-quality entertainment at the wonderful theatre, famous for its pantomime and visiting performers.
If that wasn’t enough, another attraction is the proximity to Soho Farmhouse, Daylesford and some of north Cotswold's most renowned pubs - all a short drive away, merely adding to the appeal of this superb area.
For more comprehensive shopping and recreational needs, Oxford, Bicester and Banbury are within striking distance as are a number of popular schools. The area is well-connected to some of London’s fastest rail-links with Banbury station only 11.8 miles away as well as good access to the A34 and M40.
