Collice Street, Islip, Oxfordshire, OX5

3 Bedroom Cottage For Sale

Islip dates from Saxon times, with mentions in the Domesday book at which time there was already a water mill on the river Ray, which runs through the village. It is also the birthplace of Edward the Confessor, and during the Civil War Cromwell defeated the Queens Regiment on the bridge below The Old Rectory. Today Islip is immensely popular for many reasons These include an exceptional school, Dr South's, which is over 300 years old; several popular pubs, a community shop and a village hall; a rail station with easy access to London and Oxford; barely a five mile drive into Oxford; plus many lovely local walks amidst open countryside.

3 Collice Street is a thoroughly splendid character cottage, nestling in a short no through lane that is arguably the most charming in the village. Built originally as a workers cottage, it has all the hallmarks of a house steeped in rural history. However, the owner purchased the house knowing it needed a pretty comprehensive modernisation campaign to bring it up to standard. This soon turned into a Herculean task, from digging out and rebuilding all the floors - complete with membranes and under-floor heating - to removing and completely replacing the roof. With the benefit of hindsight, building a new house would have been somewhat cheaper. But then again, the new owner will enjoy the almost unique advantage of a house that is literally new inside an old skin. For character lovers wanting an easy existence, it really has no rival at this price point.
