Seller Insight The house is designed for flexible family life and entertaining alike,” says the owner, “the spacious dining room being perfect for dinner parties and everyday family meals. The ground floor part of the extension with bedroom, lounge and bathroom could easily become self contained with its own entrance, making it ideal for elderly relatives or teenagers to be close by yet independent. Though many improvements have already been made to the property, there is yet more scope for further development and extension.” “The mature garden is a lovely place to be, too,” says the owner, “as it is shared with various kinds of wildlife, from foxes and squirrels to the birds which serenade us through the summer evenings when we sit outside. Being not at all overlooked thus extremely private, it feels like being in the middle of the countryside even though we are so close to the town.” “The location of the property is quite simply wonderful,” continues the owner, “close to the countryside yet within convenient reach of all amenities. There is a post box over the road, and Banbury Hospital is within walking distance as is the town with its shops and two primary schools. Buses run to Stratford and Chipping Norton, with a train station also nearby.”*
