A wonderful and unique character property being a meticulous re-creation of a timber framed thatched house that remarkably was only built just 50 years ago. As a consequence, Witta’s Ham Cottage offers a rare blend of reclaimed period features including some exposed timbers, latch doors and an inglenook fireplace without the complications of upkeep associated with a period house, as well as the natural advantages, in terms of running costs and ease of maintenance of a modern home.
The well-balanced accommodation was thoughtfully extended by the present owners around 10 years ago to create an impressive custom fitted country kitchen/family room with bifold doors opening to the gardens and a generous principal bedroom suite with a shower room and walk-in wardrobe. The flexible ground floor accommodation also includes a large sitting room with inglenook fireplace, a snug style family room or formal dining room, conservatory, study and utility room. Upstairs are four double bedrooms, two of which have the advantage of an en-suite.
Witta’s Ham Cottage is set in a particularly private mature garden with the advantage of a large outbuilding comprising garage, home office and store. The house stands back from the High Street in a central location in the heart of Long Wittenham.
Long Wittenham is a pretty and popular Thameside village situated between Abingdon and Didcot, both approximately 3 miles away. Facilities within the village include a thriving pub (The Plough) and busy pub restaurant (The Vine). Other facilities include village primary school and pretty church. There are some lovely walks through the village alongside the river or towards Little Wittenham and Wittenham Clumps. A wide choice of local shopping is available at the historic market towns of Abingdon and Wallingford or alternatively at Didcot with its recently enlarged shopping centre, multiplex cinema and Didcot Parkway which offers fast access to London Paddington in 40 mins.
The village offers good road links from either Didcot or Abingdon to the A34 and on to both the M4 and M40 motorways.
