Tucked away down a private and quiet farm track shared by three other properties in an exclusive development, this converted detached barn is set in an idyllic semi rural location in 1.19 acres of gardens and grounds including a range of useful outbuildings and countrywide views.

Constructed of local ironstone beneath a tiled roof, with wooden double glazed windows and single storey addition to the rear elevation, the property was originally a cattle barn serving the farmhouse and was converted in 2000. Now it provides well balanced accommodation arranged over two floors with character features including exposed ceiling beams, stonework and latched internal doors.

The entrance hall provides access to all ground floor accommodation and stairs to the first floor. The sitting room features an impressive inglenook fireplace with log burner and doors to a family room which overlooks the gardens. The study also overlooks the rear elevation. The kitchen is fitted with a range of wooden fronted base and eye level units incorporating an Aga and fitted appliances including a dishwasher and fridge. The adjacent utility room gives direct access to the rear and houses the oil fired boiler serving domestic heating and hot water via radiators.

On the first floor, there are four bedrooms. The principal bedroom features a range of built-in wardrobes and an en-suite shower room. The second bedroom also benefits from an en-suite bathroom. The remaining two bedrooms are served by a family bathroom.


A gated gravelled driveway leads along one side of the property to a detached triple garage and workshop. Constructed of stone beneath a tiled roof, the garage has three separate up and over doors. There is power and light connected and an inspection pit and boarded loft with staircase access. The mature gardens are principally laid to lawn with a large paved terrace adjacent to the property overlooking the gardens and rural views. The lawns are complimented by well stocked flowering borders, shrubs and a variety of mature trees. There is a greenhouse on concrete footings with dwarf walls attached to a single storey stone outbuilding, currently used for storage and offering scope to convert into ancillary accommodation or an office.

The garden features an attractive man made pond, surrounded by trees and is home to a variety of wildlife. Beyond the pond is an orchard with countryside beyond. In all, 1.19 acres.


Set in undulating countryside in a rural location between the villages of Chacombe and Middleton Cheney on the borders of south Northamptonshire and north Oxfordshire. The property benefits from an Oxfordshire postcode but the council tax from West Northamptonshire council. The majority of the village of Chacombe was designated as a conservation area in 1986. The village offers facilities to include a local public house with restaurant and primary school. More comprehensive facilities can be found in nearby Banbury to include the Castle Quay Shopping Centre and the Spiceball Park Leisure Centre.

Nearby are prep schools which include Carrdus (Overthorpe), St John's Priory (Banbury) and Winchester House (Brackley). Public schools include Stowe, Tudor Hall and Bloxham. There is a useful bus service, which stops at the end of the drive, which feeds all of the Oxford schools.

Excellent connections to the M40 (J11 - Banbury) about three miles away and an improved rail service from Banbury to London Marylebone (peak time from 53 minutes).

Local leisure and sporting activities in the area include Cherwell Edge Golf Course (under a mile from the property), horse racing at Towcester, motor racing at Silverstone, indoor sports complex at Banbury, and theatres at Stratford-upon-Avon, Milton Keynes and Oxford.
