About this property

  • Situated in a conservation area at the heart of the village, Little Barn is tucked away on a private no through lane. Believed to have origins dating to the 17th century, the property is constructed of stone, (some believed to have quite possibly been reclaimed from Eynsham Abbey), beneath a pitched tile roof.

    Converted and extended in the 1970s, today it offers comfortable and versatile accommodation.

    The sitting room, with a feature exposed stone wall and wood-burning stove, also has sliding doors to the terrace. The ‘piano' room could be used as snug, play room or study depending on needs. The kitchen is open plan to dining area which has sliding doors to the south facing terrace and opens to the snug. Also on the ground floor is a downstairs WC and laundry room.

    The first floor has a bright, open landing area which leads to the bedrooms. The principal bedroom with ensuite bathroom also has a walk-in dressing room. There are three further bedrooms (one currently used as dressing/home office) and a family bathroom.

    The gardens are arguably one of the most delightful features of the property and a haven to wildlife. Enlosed and well established, there is a terrace area, lawns and flower borders, a feature pond, herb garden and a summerhouse. There is off street parking to the side of the property and a double garage, which has current planning to convert to single bedroom annexe (21/01885/HHD). In need of some cosmetic updating, Little Barn is ideal for families, professionals, downsizers or second home owners.

This property is such a gem, tucked away on a private lane, great potential, planning to convert the garage to annex, and, in a sought after village with amenities!

Local information

  • Eynsham is an historic village lying about 7 miles west of Oxford. In the Middle Ages, there was a substantial Abbey which was founded in 1005 by King Aethelred.
  • In 1538 the Abbey was dissolved by Henry VIII. The remains stood for 100 years or so, but eventually stones from the Abbey were reused to build many other houses in Eynsham.
  • The popular thriving village offers a good range of local amenities including primary and secondary schools, shops, doctors surgery, chemists, library and post office.
  • Further shopping, cultural, and sporting facilities, together with other schools can be found in Oxford and Witney. Regular bus services operate to both Oxford and Witney.
