Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
Nestling within the mature and picturesque surroundings of the Burcot House Estate, with access and mooring rights to the Thames; a versatile detached house set within 0.9 acres of beautiful gardens, providing 3,400 sq ft of accommodation.

Creek End is an enchanting house set down a peaceful and well established lane of a private estate. The house provides significant lateral space over the ground floor with a drawing room, kitchen/breakfast room and conservatory all enjoying an outlook onto the wonderful and private rear garden. At the northern end of the house is a large office/reception room, bedroom with en suite and utility room with it's own external door, so could easily be adapted to provide a self-contained annexe. Upstairs there are two spacious bedrooms. The main bedroom has an en suite bathroom and dressing room and at the opposite end of the house is another en suite bathroom. The grounds are private and well established with a gravel driveway from the lane leading to the house. There are a multitude of mature trees within the plot and an orchard of fruit trees, as well as a large lawn to the rear. The double garage has expired planning permission to convert into useful separate accommodation. The most notable feature to the house is the recreational use of the riverside garden and mooring rights on the Thames where the current owners keep a 24 ft motor boat. Located a short distance from the house the riverside gardens remain in the ownership of The Burcot House Estate which allows it's enjoyment to only a handful of the houses within the grounds. The owner's boat is also available with the house should one wish.

Burcot is a desirable Thames side settlement within five miles of Abingdon and Wallingford. A pretty and leafy area with The Chequers public house within a quarter of a mile and Dorchester on Thames within two miles for a wider range of amenities including several public houses and a convenience store. There is an excellent Primary School in Clifton Hampden, a doctors' surgery, and tennis and cricket clubs on the more than generous sports field that is run by the community. Communications from Burcot are excellent with Didcot Parkway Station within six miles for London Paddington (fast train forty minutes), and the M40 (J7) nine miles by road. Abingdon and Wallingford are immensely charming riverside market towns and provide a much wider range of amenities. Schooling is excellent in the area with Abingdon The Manor, St Helen and St Katharine, Cothill, and Chandlings accessible locally and the wide range of reputable Oxford Schools also in easy reach. The property is also within the catchment area of The European School at Culham.
