An extremely pretty two bedroom Grade II Listed cottage, with a wonderful garden and garage, quietly situated in the heart of the quintessential village of Shilton.

Hilltop Cottage is a Grade II Listed period cottage, thought to date from the 17th Century and as such is a building of special architectural, historic interest. Occupying a peaceful and private situation, in the heart of the popular village of Shilton, Hilltop Cottage retains its many character features befitting its age and heritage, offering generous living space over three floors.

On the ground floor there is a good size kitchen with fitted cupboards, leading to a dining room area with exposed ceiling joists and large inglenook fireplace. The traditional space continues through to a comfortable sitting room with open fireplace and rear garden aspect views, both with hard wood staircases leading to the upper floors.

On the first floor, there is a double bedroom with front aspect views, a good size landing area that could be a dressing room, both with traditional wood floorboards and a fitted bathroom. On the second floor, via a spiral staircase, there is a further large double bedroom into the eaves. Complimenting this cottage is a very attractive frontage, accessed via a gated crazy paved path off the road.

The garden itself is slightly raised, laid to lawn with a mixture of well maintained mature beds, topiaried box hedges and borders, leading to the rear access, a single bay garage, with doors directly to the outside lane.

Shilton is a most delightful and unspoilt village in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds, containing many period cottages and houses of architectural and historical interest. The village is situated within a conservation area, approximately two miles to the south of the Cotswold town of Burford.
