Enchanting Listed Farmhouse with land.
Dating back to the 1700's, Rockley Farm House presents an exciting opportunity to breathe new life into what has been a well loved family home for 65 years. This lovely Grade II listed farmhouse now awaits a nurturing hand to implement the requirements of present day family living.
Original features such as an Inglenook fireplace, bread ovens, red and black chequerboard flooring, parquet and original stone flagged floors are a delight, as is the staircase with its graceful mahogany curving handrail.
The old tack room presents an interesting opportunity with its double height ceiling open to the eaves, big old fireplace and bread oven and stone flagged floor.
Presently there are five bedrooms on the first floor and two bathrooms with a further two charming attic rooms on the second floor.
The gardens are enchanting and form a series of secluded spaces and terraces interlinked with cobbled paths. Flowerbeds are abundant and overflowing with interesting planting. The rear gardens enjoy a south westerly aspect, with the front garden enjoying morning light through the mature Copper Beech trees.
There is an enclosed vegetable garden with a greenhouse, an orchard with ancient apple trees and a stable yard with a run of old stone and wood stables with original internal wood structures intact.
Double wooden gates are situated at the end of a gravel drive allowing easy access for horseboxes and machinery. There is a double car port with store between and a number of further outbuildings, both stone and wood. Beyond the stable yard lie two small and one larger paddock, bounded by mature trees and hedging. The two further large paddocks are tucked away to the east side of the property with a footpath through.

This really is a rare gem. A classic old farm house in need of modernisation so close to Oxford. I can't decide if the best thing is the approach past the duck pond, the exciting opportunity the house offers or the amount of land it has.Charles Elsmore-Wickens
