A charming cottage on the edge of Port Meadow and set within a generous plot with a wealth of potential to develop further subject to planning permission.

Located on the Wolvercote mill stream adjacent to the bathing place and Port Meadow, a wonderful opportunity to acquire this characterful cottage. The accommodation is arranged over two floors with an entrance hall leading to a sitting room and kitchen to the rear. There is a rear hall that leads to the bathroom, wc and another reception room. Upstairs there are three nicely proportioned bedrooms. The owner has most recently had new windows installed at the front of the house. The house has a wealth of potential to extend and improve subject to planning permission. The property also has commoners rights to keep livestock on Port Meadow.

The village of Wolvercote sits on the edge of Port Meadow which is one of the largest open spaces in the north of the city (136.9 ha). Wolvercote is a thriving community on the edge of Oxford with excellent accessibility to the city. There are three public houses, a community village shop and an excellent primary school. There is a community allotment on Port Meadow and a regular bus service into the city. It is also possible to walk across Port Meadow or along the towpath into the centre of Oxford. With the River Thames flowing through the heart of the meadow the flood plains are home to many species of wildfowl , cattle, horses. The grazing rights of the Freemen (and from the 16th Century the Commoners of Wolvercote) protected the commons from development. The property affords commoners rights.
