    About this property

    • A rare opportunity to acquire a 0.6 acre plot with planning for a new circa 1,664.1 sq ft modern home. A perfect opportunity to create a “Grand Design” in the heart of this desirable village.

      Situated in a conservation area and on the edge of this popular Oxfordshire village, adjacent to open countryside, Benjamin House dates back to the c. 19th century and is a single story dwelling with later 1960's additions. The property enjoys a south west facing garden and a historic orchard, in the total of 0.6 of an acre.

      Planning permission, ref P23/S3829/HH has been recently granted to create stunning single story home, with modern open planning living at the heart of its design. The finished exterior includes a Cotswold Stone finish, with three large roof lanterns providing an abundance of natural light. Further permission could be sought for a lower ground floor, approximately 965.95 sq ft. Permission would need to be granted for lightwells, if obtained and built both floors would be 2,630.05 sq ft.

      Upon entering the new design, a light and spacious entrance hall will welcome you. The open plan kitchen / dining / sitting room, offers space for a study area as well. It's position at the rear of the house offers views out to the garden. Off the kitchen there is a separate utility room.

      The principal bedroom enjoys a pair of walk-in wardrobes and an en suite shower room. To one side of the house, the design provides two further double bedrooms that will have access to a “Jack and Jill” en suite shower room. Completing the accommodation there will be a cloakroom off the hall.
      There is the opportunity for further development with a lower floor underneath the purposed extension. Further planning would need to be acquired for lightwells to any subterranean accommodation.

      Outside, at the front there is driveway parking for a number of vehicles. The delightful south west facing rear garden and orchard amount to approximately 0.6 of an acre. In the garden there is a swimming pool and a Shepherds Hut, complete with its own shower room, currently it is used as a bedroom but could also be an ideal home office. The orchard is open to the garden and has a number of appletree's and its own access via a gate to one corner. A pedestrian gate at the end of the garden provides access on to the footpath, ideal for a leisurely walk (0.2 miles) to the village pub The Red Lion and the surrounding countryside.
