This historic village home with part thatched roof is absolutely dreamy, and the contemporary interior…wow. Just wow.... Dating back to the possible 1600's this cobblers forge and cottage has all the charm you would expect of a Grade II listed, part  thatched cottage.

Before you even approach the home you know you’re in for a treat. Oakley Cottage stands proudly in the centre of the village high street with the stunning and historic village church offering the most captivating of views from the cottage.

Once inside the spacious lounge  you could be stepping into the pages of an interior magazine or even an history book. The beams in the living room and throughout the house  we believe are orginal and steeped in history. But there’s no banging your head here, or remembering to ‘duck’ as the ceilings are loftily high and the rooms wonderfully airy. If you like your toes nice and toasty, fear not as you’ll find a log burner inside an original inglenook fireplace the "Perfect" place to watch movies on a cold winters day or a place to relax after a brisk walk around Elington village . 

The large  kitchen is an absolute dream, it’s been carefully chosen by a prevoius owner to fit in with the village cottage kitchen feel. The kitchen is large enough for an island or small table and would be the perfect spot to enjoy a cup of coffee and catch up with friends. The inglenook oven & cooker surround is a reminder of good  old farmhouse  cooking bygone days and there is plenty of space for  appliances and a plethora of storage. From here, there is a door to the bathroom and externally to the rear courtyard garden. 

 While the  sitting room is spacious and bright with its inglenook  fireplace.,the dining room makes the perfect entertaining space, with its exposed beams , stone flooring and space for the largest of tables it is the picture-book backdrop for dinner parties, family meals or informal chit- chat's. With a door way leading to the summer room its hard to imagine this was once a cobblers forge while you're sat there relaxing over -looking the garden while drinking coffee. 

Upstairs, you’ll find two exceedingly typical cottage bedrooms, Views over the local church and latch pine doors They both share the same sense of history and style, and glorious views, of course! The landing space offers a nook which would work perfectly as an home office space and a possible seating area too. The first floor landing space also benefits from a first floor cloakroom. 

The four piece  family bathroom offers a large corner bath for soaking away those aches and pains of the day, a WC, hand wash basin and a separate shower cubicle which once the doors is locked and the candles are lit it offers you your little slice of heaven,his is the perfect haven for relaxation, close the door and forget about the bustling chaos of the day. 

The rear courtyard garden is intimate but offers ample space for those drinks with friends, those summer BBQ's or just sitting down and relaxing on those summer evenings. 

On a practical level, there’s access within 2 mins to the A14 linking you within a short drive to major cities and towns and Grafham Water Country Park for an amble or fun day out is less than five minutes away. 

If your looking for that perfect retreat for your family and love  the histroric vibe set in the perfect location that would suit an entire family's needs then this property delivers in spades and a viewing is highly recommended
