Under the skin of the letting market

Here we share news and views on both the local letting market in & around Oxfordshire and all planned and recent legislation.


A unique property in the centre of Witney


 

Witney is our most improved Oxfordshire market town.  It’s skilfully managed to add a well designed new shopping centre which includes Debenhams and Marks & Spencer without it dominating the historic centre. The great news is independent shops are thriving too. Interesting niche clothes, furnishings shops, art galleries and gourmet cook shops are interspersed with delicatessens, cafes and traditional butchers.

West Oxfordshire’s parking policy encourages shoppers from the surrounding villages and beyond. The weekly market and farmers’ market are really well supported maintaining the town’s traditions long since the blanket mills closed.

A great example of a rarely available property to rent in Witney is at Church Green in the town which also mirrors the preservation of history with sympathetically designed modern essentials sitting happily side by side.  It’s a semi-detached stone town house overlooking the green and dates back to the 18th century. The historic 13th century church former grammar school which opened its doors in 1666 is at the end of Church Green.

Original shutters, flagstone floors, doors, fireplaces plus wood floors have been restored or installed, but, with the latest A-rated energy efficient central heating system. Shaker style cream kitchen units and wood worktops give a natural look, combined with fully integrated appliances for practicality and aesthetic appeal.

On the ground floor there is a fully tiled wet-room with a walk in shower and a flexible 4th bedroom or study. The utility/laundry with a washer dryer, Belfast sink and a marvellous pulley for drying clothes harks back to another era.

There are three further bedrooms upstairs and a large bathroom with Victorian style roll top bath plus a separate shower.  Unusually, there are two off-road gated parking spaces and a walled courtyard.

It feels very quiet and secluded inside but it’s just steps away from shops, restaurants or a cappuccino.  Available at £2100 pcm, call Collette Lally in our Witney office on 01993 700150 to view this exceptional property to rent in the heart of Witney and check out the town’s quality of life for yourself.
