4 Bedroom Detached House 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.
Greystones is a proud, attractive and large historic house set in the very centre of one of the most popular villages in this area. In every corner and nook there is evidence of its great age, varying from hugely thick stone walls to beams so old they're iron hard. Children especially will love the eccentricities and character, while their parents will relish the fact that the living spaces, garden and parking arrangements are all exceptionally practical for modern tastes. The house is also presented well, with recent work that includes a fabulous timber-framed kitchen extension, and a new heating system in the last year. And yet there is still scope to mould the decor around your own taste. We don't find many properties that do character and practicality this well. When we do they sell quickly.
