The roof has recently been rethatched and the exterior is impeccable for its age.
“Charming”, “Idyllic” and “Quiet” are the descriptive words used in the listing write-up, as you might expect.

Cute little Priory Cottage is for sale in the Oxfordshire village of Berrick Salome for £1,250,000 (1.9 million US dollars). Pricey, yes, but this place has been extensively renovated with careful attention to the historic character.

 This lovely abode is a Grade II listed historic property dating back to the mid or late 17th century.

Old meets new in the spectacular kitchen. Not as charm-filled as my personal taste demands, but beautiful nonetheless.

The dark exposed beams bring that wonderful weighted period look into an otherwise, light and bright decor.

Actually, it’s all too perfect.

I own a 17th Century thatched roof cottage in the village of Berrick Salome”, says no one that I’ve ever known.

But in a world where lottery dreams do occasionally come true, we can be hopelessly optimistic!
