A FANTASTIC FOUR BEDROOM FAMILY HOME in the peaceful Oxfordshire Village of Merton, near Bicester, on the edge of the Otmoor wildlife reserve and being close to several other local villages that between them offer a range of local amenities including shops, village pubs and even a Michelin Star Restaurant! This large semi-detached home offers wonderful living space including versatile work-from-home space or play room - ideal for families wishing to bring children up in a more tranquil rural location with all the benefits of Bicester and Oxford being just a few miles in either direction.

The front door opens into an entrance porch area, an ideal space to be able to kick off any muddy boots or wet coats before heading through to the main hallway. Stairs lead to the first floor and there is a cupboard for storage beneath. There is a good sized Kitchen to the front of the property, large enough to accommodate a dining table, with a range of fitted kitchen cupboards and worktops over. A door opens through to the integral garage which offers great storage space and secure parking, or of course the potential for a garage conversion to provide up to around 15 square metres of further ground floor accommodation if desired (subject to building regulations and any relevant consents). In fact, with some foresight, the owner has installed underfloor heating to the garage to allow this to be more easily achieved.

Elsewhere on the ground floor, the hallway leads into a large Living Room with open fireplace. Double doors open into the rear garden, and another door leads through to a rear extension with vaulted ceiling - a flexible space that is ideal for Play Room or Games Room, or perhaps a Cinema Room, or maybe - in this day and age - a wonderful, bright and spacious Office for those looking to work from home. Equally, it could provide a useful Guest Bedroom if needed, benefiting as it does from an en-suite Shower Room.

On the first floor there are four Double Bedrooms, with the Master Bedroom benefiting from a fantastic en-suite Shower Room, as well as there being a main Family Bathroom.

Outside the property there is off street parking for multiple vehicles on the driveway to the front of the property, as well as offering the integral garage. To the rear, the well tended garden enclosed by a combination of fence and wall extends to around 50 ft and backs onto farmland and farm buildings. The garden is largely laid to lawn with patio area adjacent to the property, and there is also a garden shed.

This semi detached family home is situated in a cul de sac position within the quiet village of Merton, just a few miles from Bicester and also within easy reach of Oxford and Kidlington. The neighbouring villages of Murcott, Ambroseden, Charlton on Otmoor and Islip offer a range of amenities between them, including local village schools, shops and pubs, including the famous and Michelin Starred Nut Tree pub/restaurant at Murcott. This is an ideal property for families in particular, particularly those who love a bit of country living. Merton itself offers excellent facilities for children including a large recreation ground and play park, and the Otmoor wildlife reserve is on the doorstep with endless countryside walks in all directions. It is also a remarkably energy efficient house, with an EPC rating of C - something that makes a big difference when looking at potential savings on energy bills in the future. There is a modern air source heating system to heat the property as well as there being an open fire in the living room, for those cooler, cosy winter nights.
