Located in a secluded rural and private setting is this attractive family home. Brimpton Cottage is a compelling mix of fresh, light and modern spaces, yet the house retains a huge amount of the original charm and character. Brimpton Cottage has evolved over time, the oldest part being the spectacular barn dating from the 15th Century with adjoining cottages added later.
The accommodation throughout is generous and the reception rooms allow a real flexibility as to how they could be used. Highlights include the beautiful kitchen/breakfast room with adjoining sitting room which provides the most fantastic living space and is very much the heart of the home. Bespoke bi folding doors provide the most spectacular views across the garden and surrounding countryside and once open, form a seamless link between the inside and out and in turn is perfect for those who enjoy outside dining and entertaining. There is the most wonderful barn adjoining the property which could have a variety of uses, such as a party barn, home office, playroom or annexe if the necessary permissions were obtained.
The five bedroom, five bath/shower room layout over two floors makes for comfortable family living and includes some lovely features such as attractive vaulted, beamed ceilings in the master bedroom and lovely views across the garden and countryside beyond.
Brimpton Cottage sits in an attractive plot which extends to approximately 2.17 acres. The garden wraps around the property and is interspersed with a variety of trees and shrubs, making for a colourful backdrop throughout the ever changing seasons. There is an enclosed swimming pool (not presently in working order). A large driveway provides ample parking for a number of cars. There is a wooden double bay car port with storage shed at one end and four further storage/garden sheds.
Thame is a thriving market town, perfectly situated at the foot of the Chiltern Hills, just 14 miles from Oxford. From historical buildings to beautiful parks, a Museum, a Theatre, a vibrant High Street, and regular events – Thame has lots of exciting attractions and activities.
Like many traditional market towns, Thame grew from Anglo-Saxon roots but has since developed its own individual character whilst preserving its rich history. Ancient medieval buildings stand alongside Georgian and Victorian architecture and the iconic boat-shaped high street stands as testimony to the market place for which it was originally designed – the beauty of the town offers a quintessentially English experience.
Local shopping can be found at nearby Sandy Lane Organic Farm Shop and Great Milton village shop and Post Office but for more comprehensive shopping and recreational needs, Oxford is within striking distance as are a number of highly regarded schools, both state and private.
The property is well positioned for the M4o providing easy access to both London and Birmingham but for those needing the train, Haddenham & Thame Parkway Train Station is a short drive away (London Marylebone from 37 mins).
If that wasn’t enough, The Oxfordshire Golf Club and Spa is 2 miles away as is a wide choice of excellent restaurants and pubs including La Table d’Alix at The Plough in Great Haseley, Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons at Great Milton and the Lamb Inn in Little Milton.
