About this property

  • Ferry House is a substantial house (c. 7,500 sq ft) built of brick and ashlar stone under a tiled roof. The original dwelling is believed to date from about 1920 although there have been significant extensions over the years.

    Fronting on to the Wallingford Road and the Listed Shillingford Bridge, Ferry House has extensive gardens and an impressive and large ornamental pond to the rear.

    Sadly, the property has fallen in to disrepair in recent years and now requires extensive refurbishment or replacement subject to the appropriate consents. The fields and amenity land are situated to the rear and include numerous fish ponds and a steel framed building (formerly used for fish breeding). There is a separate vehicular right of way to the land.

    Tenure:
    Freehold

    Agents Note
    Ferry House is now in poor structural condition and so strict conditions will be in place for viewings.

    Prospective purchasers should be aware that the property is within a flood plain and that a public footpath, the Thames Path, runs through the property along the side of the Thames.
