DESCRIPTION

New Farm House is a handsome stone built double fronted property dating back to the early 1800's. This Grade II listed house has retained much period charm with original features including fabulous stone flagged flooring, deep recessed windows and timber latch doors, and also benefits from a charming wood fuelled double oven Esse in the kitchen. The main house offers in excess of 3000 sq ft of accommodation set over 3 floors as well as a useful cellar room. In addition, there is a self-contained one-bedroom annexe set above the adjacent detached triple carport/garage. The annexe currently generates a healthy rental income.

To the ground floor of the Farm House there is an impressive stone flagged hallway running centrally through the house with doors at each end leading to the front and back gardens, respectively. From the hallway doors open onto generously proportioned living accommodation which comprises a sitting room with working open fireplace, dining/family room with woodburning stove, a spacious study, a kitchen/ breakfast room and to the side, a boot room with separate WC and adjoining covered wood store and mower shed.

To the first floor there is a spacious principal en suite bedroom with double aspect windows and pleasant views over farmland. There are a further three good sized double bedrooms and a traditional family bathroom with claw foot roll top bath. Stairs rise and turn from the landing to the third floor where there are two additional bedrooms served by a third bathroom.

The detached annexe, which was converted in 2000, sits above the triple carport/garage to the side of the house and has a bright open plan kitchen/ living space with door leading to the double bedroom with en suite shower room.

The house would benefit from some refurbishment with potential for improvement subject to the necessary consents but this lovely property offers a unique and rare opportunity to enhance a fabulous characterful home in a pleasant semi-rural setting yet just a few miles away from the city of Oxford.

OUTSIDE

The property is approached via a driveway which leads through the farmyard to the rear of the house around to the carport/garage. The owner of the property has a right of access over this drive. There is a lovely garden to the front of the property enclosed by a stone wall with central lawn fringed with mature shrub, flower borders and tree. The lawn extends round to the side of the house to a particularly attractive, private and well screen area of the garden where there is gated access to the house and annexe.
