A charming two bedroomed semi-detached cottage set in an idyllic location in the small village of Hampton Gay enjoying an extensive tiered rear garden with river frontage and riparian rights.

River Cottage is a pretty semi-detached property located in the small village of Hampton Gay. The village is accessed from the village road down a single track lane and is surrounded by open countryside. The appealing cottage has a welcoming dining room with doors leading to the sitting room, kitchen and stairway. The light filled living room has 3 multi pane windows to the front and benefits from a working stone fireplace. The kitchen is to the rear of the property and has door access to the rear paved terrace and fabulous garden beyond. There is a sink base unit with space for a washing machine, fridge freezer and cooker and wall space for freestanding cupboards/dresser. A useful boiler room/pantry is located next to the back door. On the first floor there are two adjoining bedrooms, both with generous vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and attractive pitched dormer windows. These rooms could readily be reinstated to give three bedrooms if required. There is a family bathroom on the first floor and wet room to the ground floor.

To the rear of the house is a fabulous tiered garden which steps down to the river at the far end. Predominantly laid to lawn the generously proportioned garden benefits from a stone outbuilding and smoke house with wood store. There is a paved entertaining terrace to the rear of the house and gravel parking area to the side. The rear aspect is truly stunning with far reaching views over open countryside beyond the river.

The property benefits from riparian rights.

There is scope to extend the property to the rear subject to the necessary consents.

Surrounded by beautiful open countryside the lovely village of Hampton Gay is conveniently located just five miles from Oxford and with excellent links to the A34 and the M40. There is a regular bus service from the end of the lane and Oxford Parkway is a 10 minute drive away (under 5 miles) with regular trains to Marylebone. The neighbouring village of Hampton Poyle has a church and a highly regarded gastro-pub, The Bell. More comprehensive amenities can be found in nearby Kidlington. Primary schools are available in the neighbouring villages of Bletchingdon and Kirtlington, with secondary schooling in both Kidlington and Woodstock. There are many excellent private schools in the city of Oxford, which is within an easy drive.

Please note, although not listed, the cottage is considered to be within the curtilage of the Grade II listed building opposite.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
