Kerb appeal in abundance along with exceptional internal charm and character. Duck End Cottage can be found in the listed conservation of Duck End, where it sits in a large garden, nestled amongst fields, towards the end of a quiet no- through road.

An English heritage grade two listed example of a C13th three bay Cruck construction, the cottage was renovated by the current owners after they purchased it from the family who had owned it for over 70 years. It was featured on the BBC, in Monty Don's rural craft series, where the base thatch was discovered to be the oldest in the country. There is a plethora of period features, including exposed beams, large elm floorboards (from the reformation of the monasteries) and a magnificent inglenook fireplace and bread oven.

The accommodation on the ground floor comprises, entrance hall and bathroom, open plan contemporary kitchen and dining room and sitting room. Upstairs there are two bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite toilet.

There is parking to the side and a cottage garden in the curtilage of the house; the remainder is an atmospheric garden, with dappled light from Ash trees and hosting much rare wildlife and visiting birds.

Duck End is in Sutton, an attractive Mediaeval village 8 miles west of Oxford. It is conveniently located for Oxford and London and close to notable schools in the locale, these include Radley College, Abingdon School, St Edwards, Summerfields and The Dragon School.

Close by are the extensive shopping facilities of Witney, and there is an excellent pub, The Harcourt Arms.

Rail connections are via Long Hanborough and Charlbury (London Paddington) or Oxford Parkway (London Marylebone).
