Pippins is a charming, character semi-detached period cottage, delightfully situated in a peaceful country setting within the hamlet of Oxbridge. The property was formerly understood to be 2 cottages, constructed with stone and brick elevations under a slate roof. Under the current ownership since the early 1990's the property has been subject to comprehensive modernisation and refurbishment together with the construction of a delightful 2 storey extension. All the principal rooms enjoy a westerly facing aspect with glorious views over the gardens and surrounding countryside.
The extensive accommodation includes a most attractive sitting/dining room with brick fireplace and wood burning stove and oak flooring. Access leads through into a UPVC double glazed conservatory overlooking the gardens, again with oak floors, a high quality kitchen/breakfast room with solid painted wood units and beech work surfaces, built-in appliances and oil-fired Aga. A delightful 2 storey extension provides further accommodation which would be suitable for a dependant relative with a snug, utility room and shower room and staircase leading up to most impressive first floor studio/occasional bedroom.
On the first floor the original cottage has 3 bedrooms with the master bedroom having an en suite shower room and family bathroom.
Internally the accommodation is immaculately presented and internal viewings comes very highly recommended.
