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.

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.
