Surrounded by glorious countryside is this attractive character home, with detached ancillary accommodation currently used as a bed and breakfast but providing excellent scope for other uses, or to continue as an income generator. The area is renowned for its countryside attracting many domestic and international tourists, while central Oxford is just 20 minutes' drive away and there is the added addition of being conveniently close to the A40 and M40 road communications. This presents an exciting opportunity as a business, if desired, with scope for expansion.

The main house is over 2000 sq ft and is believed to have been originally built in the 1600s, with later additions and extensions adding to the already generous footprint of the home. Internally it is very well presented with country-style, traditional interiors and a neutral colour scheme that provides a blank canvas for personalisation, though is ready for immediate occupation. A highlight of the accommodation is certainly the generous triple aspect sitting room with its open fire and brick fireplace, providing a cosy space to unwind in the winter or a great room for entertaining year-round. The family bath/shower room has a spa-like feel with its claw-footed 'slipper' style bath tub and separate shower enclosure, while the en suite bathroom to the principal bedroom is equally modern and luxurious and also provides both bath and shower facilities. Most sought-after of all is the lovely farmhouse kitchen complete with AGA, which is a wonderfully welcoming room with French windows opening to the garden providing a great space for family meals, either inside or adjacent to the house in the garden. With its traditional range cooker, parquet solid wood floors and attractive cabinetry, the kitchen has a charming country feel and has space for both a dining table and a family sitting area.

Throughout the house, the accommodation is very spacious and has a bright and airy feel. The main house accommodation comprises an entrance hallway with storage cupboard, 22ft triple aspect sitting room, the open plan kitchen/dining/family room with adjoining utility room and a cloakroom with w.c. Upstairs on the first floor there is a principal bedroom with en suite bath/shower room, a further en suite guest bedroom, two additional double bedrooms and the family bath/shower room.


The property is set back from the road behind an area of mature woodland in a quiet and secluded location surrounded by attractive countryside. The grounds of approximately 3.72 acres provide excellent scope for the smallholder or potential for landscaping or expanding the bed and breakfast business, if desired. A delightful first impression is provided by the sweeping tree-lined driveway, which leads to the front of the house to an area of street parking on a gravel driveway and additional covered parking within a detached double garage. The gardens are mostly laid to expansive lawns with a number of well-established specimen trees providing shade.
