SITUATION Denton is a peaceful hamlet situated just outside the village of Cuddesdon; the name Denton is derived from the old English meaning "valley farmstead". The hamlet sits in a fold of the landscape, between the two hills of Cuddesdon and Garsington, approximately 7 miles east of Oxford and well placed for Js 7 and 8 of the M40 motorway, the city of Oxford and the ringroads. Cuddesdon has a Parish Church and a popular pub The Bat and Ball. It is also the home of the Anglican theological training college. The surrounding area has the benefit of numerous walks and bridleways to enjoy the surrounding countryside.

The nearby village of Wheatley provides day to day shopping needs including a library, post office, supermarket and primary and secondary schools; a local primary school can be found at the neighbouring village of Garsington. There is an excellent selection of preparatory and senior independent schools in the area including Abingdon School, Chandlings Manor, Cothill, the Dragon, Headington School, Magdalen College School, Oxford High and St Edwards School. The City of Oxford provides an extensive range of cultural, educational and shopping facilities.

DESCRIPTION The White Cottage, which is thought to date back to the early 1700s, has been thoughtfully extended and sympathetically refurbished throughout by the current owners to offer both modern and characterful accommodation.

The accommodation comprises a light and bright contemporary dual aspect kitchen/breakfast room with underfloor heating overlooking the garden and French doors opening out onto the paved wrap around terrace perfect for alfresco dining. Separate boot room with Belfast sink and side door access to the garden. Utility room off the kitchen, leading through to the guest cloakroom/wet room. To the front of the cottage there are two charming reception rooms, which are currently set up as a dining room with exposed painted beams, inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove and window seat and a dual aspect sitting room also with wood burning stove, exposed painted beams and window seat.

On the first floor there are two equally charming double bedrooms both with far reaching views over farmland, exposed beams and fitted cupboards. To the rear of the property overlooking the garden is a light and airy vaulted master bedroom with eaves storage cupboards and ensuite shower room. There is also a family bathroom with underfloor heating. On the top floor there are two further delightful and cosy loft rooms, currently set up as an occasional bedroom and snug (restricted head height).

The White Cottage is set in approximately half an acre of stunning, private and fully enclosed gardens. The thoughtfully landscaped garden is in part surrounded by a pretty stone wall, there are lawned areas, deep herbaceous borders, mature shrubs and trees.

Within the grounds of the property there is an impressive and well-appointed separate annexe/home office arranged over one floor and its current configuration provides a cinema room, home office, studio and bathroom. It would also be ideal as residential accommodation. It is a cleverly designed bright space with French doors opening out onto the garden from all three rooms.

In addition to the annexe there is a substantial double garage with workshop, studio, wood store, greenhouse, summerhouse and generous gravelled driveway parking.

The property has vehicular access to the rear via a shared right-of-way. The driveway and rear garden are accessed by wooden gates.

The White Cottage presents an exciting opportunity to purchase this unique home occupying an envious position and boasting beautiful countryside views.
