The AreaSutton Courtenay

Sutton Courtenay is one of South Oxfordshire’s most highly regarded and sought after locations. A pretty village with a stunning green and many period and thatched properties; there is a real sense of community. This is very much a village which retains the best qualities of traditional village life. Perched on the banks of the River Thames, there are three pubs to choose from, two village shops and a garage.

Commuting to London or Oxford couldn’t be easier. Walnut Tree Cottage is exceptionally well placed, with Didcot Parkway Station only 4 miles away and trains to London Paddington from 37 minutes.

The closest town is Abingdon which sits in a desirable position on the River Thames and includes a stunning market square and attractive architecture, such as the County Hall, built from Oxfordshire Limestone and believed to be designed by Sir Christopher Wren. This is market town living at its finest. Oxford itself is just over 10 miles away.

Bordered by the rolling Chilterns on one side and the magnificent Berkshire Downs on the other, the surrounding countryside is idyllic with inexhaustible options for lovers of the outdoors, with highlights being the River Thames and Wittenham Clumps.

There is a wide and excellent choice of both state and private schools, including a Primary School within Sutton Courtenay.

Walnut Tree Cottage, Sutton CourtenayAbout this home

Tucked away in an incredibly private position, just off the green, in the highly sought after village of Sutton Courtenay, sits Walnut Tree Cottage. Amongst other things, it is the position of this house which really sets it apart. The quintessentially charming village green in Sutton Courtenay is the backdrop to beautiful period properties, mature trees, the church and three pubs.

Parts of the house date from the late 16th Century and the house has some beautiful period features including historic beams and a beautiful inglenook fireplace. The current owners have been at the property for over 20 years, during which time they have added the superb orangery and improved and maintained the house to a very high standard. The end result is a fantastic family home. There is plenty of room for cars, with a large drive and double garage. The south facing garden has been beautifully designed and landscaped and offers a completely private and tranquil idyll to while away lazy summer afternoons.
