The origins of this individual property are from an old farm building which is why the distinctive timber cladding to the south side of the property was made part of the listing. The cottage is divided into two halves with a central adjoining corridor with the north side having spacious dining room with bedroom above and the south side having a stylish fitted kitchen with a whole range of integrated appliances and a living room at a slightly lower level with twin French doors leading onto the side garden. The second first floor incorporates two bedrooms and two bathrooms, one en suite to the rear bedroom which also enjoys particularly attractive south facing views over orchards and surrounding gardens.
The property has propane gas fired central heating, an additional ground floor shower room, attractive gardens and will be of instant appeal to those looking for a character home in the Cotswolds and a rural escape from a busy life.
The Old Bakery itself forms part of the street scene of Paxford village where there is a drive through archway over which hangs the original Hovis sign leading into a central courtyard shared by four other properties with each party owning their own share of the courtyard but each property also having rights of access for turning facilities over each others' land.
The village is located midway between Blockley and the cosmopolitan Cotswold cafe society of Chipping Campden where there are a wide range of shops and amenities, good quality restaurants and hostelries. Rail links to London Paddington are available in Moreton in Marsh.

The Old Bakery was developed over a period of years with two pairs of semi detached properties on the other side of the village green where there is a subterranean propane gas tank which serves those four properties and the five properties within The Old bakery. The gas is replenished by the service providers and the system operates in a similar way to mains gas service.
