3 Beech Road is situated in the charming village of Oxhill. The village is close to the Oxfordshire border and on the edge of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, situated in the Vale of the Red Horse not far from the Edgehill escarpment and the site of the Civil War battle in 1642.
Oxhill is a popular village with a public house and parish church. Other facilities are available in the village of Tysoe some two miles away. They include a post office, general store, hairdressers, churches, play group, junior school and doctors’ surgery. More comprehensive shopping is available in Shipston on Stour (5 miles) and the village is central to Banbury and Stratford-upon-Avon. The towns of Warwick and Leamington Spa are also easily accessible and the nearest motorway access on the M40 is at Gaydon junction 12 being approximately 8 miles away. A full range of state, grammar and public schools are to be found within traveling distance.
The cottage is set back from the roadway behind a graveled foregarden and although there isn’t a private driveway, the road is quiet and parking is usually available to the front of the property.
Access from the front door leads into the sitting room which is a particularly charming room giving a wonderful first impression of the property. In here are a number of character features including an open fireplace with stone surround and hearth which makes a central focal point of the room. There are eye catching ceiling beams as well as a wooden window seat.
A door from the sitting room leads into an inner hallway which has stairs rising to the first floor with storage space underneath. Doors from here link to both the sitting room to one side and the kitchen to the other.
The kitchen is positioned to the rear of the property and has been refitted with a range of base and wall mounted units with contrasting work surfaces over. There is space and plumbing within the kitchen for usual white goods such as the washing machine and fridge / freezer.

The bright bathroom has been refitted with a modern white suite and comprises: bath with electric shower above, an attractive oblong wash hand basin set into a white vanity unit and a W.C. There is a range of white tiling to all splash areas.
A set of stairs rise to the first floor landing which gives access to the two bedrooms and a storage cupboard. Both bedrooms are well proportioned and large enough to house a double bed.
