LEGALS READY. EPC Rating: E
This isnt your average traditional bungalow it has a far more youthful contemporary feel and has been modernised to a high standard.
The current owners downsized from a larger property but found the layout and space didnt work for them. So, they embarked on a comprehensive refurbishment and reconfiguration of the property whilst also undertaking a loft conversion to provide additional space comprising an En Suite Bedroom and Airing Cupboard to the first floor. They enlarged the Kitchen by incorporating the former bathroom so it became a kitchen/dining room and a former bedroom was turned into a much larger than average bathroom.
The list of works undertaken over recent years is extensive but includes: refitted kitchen and bathroom, loft conversion with new insulated roof, rewired electrics, replumbed, pressurised hot water system added, new Italian Eco electric radiator heating (programmable and thermostatically controlled), replacement PVCu double glazed windows and external doors fascias and soffits, new bathrooms, re-plastered, complete internal redecoration and new floor finishes. Externally; walls repointed, gardens landscaped, driveway re-laid and resurfaced, and a timber garden studio with storage added.

So, what particularly attracted you to the property when you bought it?
We like to take walks, and ideally we wanted a village with country and canal walks and Claydon offers both of these.
How long have owned the property?
Approaching 4 years
Briefly, can you tell me some of the things you love about living here?
a. Its a really lovely village that is peaceful, quiet and has a good community.
b. There are great countryside walks and no matter what time of year it is there are many stunning views around locally. We also like taking a stroll on a summers evening alongside the canal into Cropredy often stopping for a drink at one of their village pubs.
c. We have done a lot of work to the property and we feel it is far more balanced home now and is more compatible with modern living. It is a comfortable home to live in and the Eco electric radiator heating system we have installed makes it nice and cosy in the winter.
d. We know some villages can be a bit clicky but Claydon we have found very friendly. You can either mix or keep to yourself though, there is no pressure, its a very relaxed place to live.
e. Whilst the village doesnt have a shop it is well served by mobile services including: milkman, butcher and veg deliveries by Mumford Butchers, there is a fish and chip van on a Monday, and a charity bus service to Tesco in Banbury or it is no bother to pop to the village shop at Fenny Compton on Cropredy nearby.
