DESCRIPTION Red Lion Cottage is a fantastic opportunity to acquire a period cottage in the very heart of Burford. This lovely property is highly unusual for Burford in that it boasts both a fabulous garden and a double garage with potential additional parking behind. The garden is in need of some love to be best maximised. Internally the accommodation, which is in need of total refurbishment, comprises entrance hall, sitting room, kitchen/dining room, landing, two first floor double bedrooms, a bathroom and a second floor bedroom. We believe that the property is covered under the Grade II* listing of Red Lion House. Because of the nature of the sale, offers are invited on or prior to 4th January 2021. No offer will be accepted prior to this date.

SITUATION Burford is a picturesque small Cotswold market town with many historical connections. Situated on the Oxfordshire/Gloucestershire border and known as the The Gateway to the Cotswolds, it offers a good range of hotels, pubs, restaurants and cafes, plus a thriving blend of independent specialist food, fashion, craft and antiques shops, and a smaller number of national brands such as Joules, Caffè Nero and the Co-op. State and private schooling in the area is outstanding, with schools in Burford, Bourton-on-the-Water, Witney, Kingham and Cokethorpe. High Street chains haven't made a significant impression on Burford, which adds to its uniqueness and helps make it an enduring place to live, work and visit. The town nestles in the Windrush Valley surrounded by beautiful countryside, yet is within easy reach of Oxford and Cheltenham, both of which provide the main cultural and shopping facilities for the area. There are good road communications to London via the A40/M40 and a train service from Charlbury to London-Paddington.

DIRECTIONS (OX18 4QJ) The property is accessed via a red door between Mad Hatters Book Shop and Cotswold Glass and Crafts on Burford High Street.
