An extremely attractive detached three bedroom period cottage with plenty of character, situated in the quintessential village of Shilton. Cavalier Cottage is an idyllic Cotswold stone-built house, with deceptive accommodation and plenty of period features. Entry into the cottage itself is via an attractive west-facing porch, leading into a good size hallway/dining area, with character beams and a large feature fireplace. The hallway area neatly divides the ground floor space, accommodating a comfortable double aspect sitting room, a fully fitted kitchen with flagstone flooring and a good size ground floor bathroom. The staircase leads up to the first-floor landing, where there are three bedrooms, one with an extra adjoining room which currently acts as a walk-in wardrobe. Complimenting this cottage further, within a Cotswold stone boundary wall is a pretty west-facing garden, with small lawned area, traditional stone shed, wood store, electric gate and private parking for several cars. Shilton is a most delightful and unspoilt village in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds, containing many period cottages and houses of architectural and historic interest. The village is served by a local public house, the 17th Century Rose & Crown, which stands in the heart of the village. The humble unadorned medieval Church of the Holy Rood stands on a slope above the village, which can be seen from the South. The village is situated within a conservation area, approximately two miles to the south of the Cotswold town of Burford, which provides a range of shopping facilities, a primary and secondary school, several public houses and a public library. Witney, Cirencester and Swindon are all within easy reach, whilst Cheltenham and Oxford provide the main shopping and cultural centres for the area. There are good road communications to London via the A40/M40 and a train service from Charlbury to London Paddington.
