About this property

  • The Farmhouse is positioned on the eastern edge of Bloxham Grove backing onto open countryside.

    The house is curtilage listed (Grade II) and is believed to be of early 17th century origins with later additions.

    The property is of local ironstone construction and given its architecture, has a quintessentially handsome façade.

    Classic period architecture provides well-proportioned principal rooms with generous ceiling heights and plenty of natural light.

    Period features include open fireplaces, exposed timbers, simple coving, sash and casement windows (some being arched), window seats, extensive flagstone floors (with underfloor heating) and six panel internal doors.

    Given lapsed planning permission (see planning note below) exists for a substantial extension to the main house and repositioned garage, there is potential to further improve and enhance this lovely property.

    The accommodation is laid out over three floors and a cellar and in particular the second floor lends itself well to children or teenagers.

    Hardstanding parking area to the south.

    Ample, level gardens extend to the east and a ha-ha. Wooded copse, which includes impressive Wellingtonia. Various garden stores.

    The paddock is post and rail with electric fencing throughout and sown with mixed equine grass.

I've always liked the slightly understated grandeur with its Georgian façade and all the Georgian architecture that comes with it.
