An elegant and well-proportioned period house retaining an abundance of character and arranged over three floors, with a garage in a nearby street.

The Stone House is a very characterful village property set within a popular location that provides excellent access to Abingdon and Didcot Parkway station for London. Built from stone under slate roof with large sash windows and high ceilings the house benefits from plenty of natural light within substantial and well-presented accommodation. A central hallway leads to the principal reception rooms, a kitchen/breakfast room at the rear, and a conservatory and WC. The kitchen is well equipped with plenty of storage and granite worktops, an integrated oven, hob, water softener and a Rayburn. There is also cellar/larder accessed via the hallway. The first floor has a main bedroom with en suite, three further bedrooms and a family bathroom. The top floor is a versatile room (currently used as an office) with an en suite shower room and a wealth of shelved storage under the eaves.

The house provides a good amount of outside space both at the front and the rear. To the front is a driveway that has an EV charging point and can accommodate several cars. The rear is mature garden with a two hundred year old walnut tree bounded in part by walls and mainly laid to lawn. There is also a purpose built garden store/workshop and a wooden shed within the garden. The garage is situated within a block on the adjacent Meads Close.
