About this property

  • The Grade II listed Tithe Barn lies to the south of Cuddesdon village in an elevated position affording beautiful views south and east over open countryside.

    Having recently undergone restoration and stabilisation works to support the roof, the Tithe Barn now offers an exceptional opportunity for prospective purchasers to create a unique, contemporary dwelling with bespoke internal and external features within an historic rural setting. Careful consideration has been given to the design of the proposed conversion which seeks to maximise use of the generous internal space, whilst respecting the existing form and features of the building.

    The proposals include provision of sheltered car parking in an open barn set apart from the main Tithe Barn, alongside bin and cycle storage. Furthermore, landscaping designs have been set out for the circa 1,200 sq m of private grassed amenity associated with the development. Full planning and listed building consent was granted in February 2019 for the conversion of this character building, which forms part
    of a wider planning permission to redevelop Manor and Dovehouse Farm. Further details of this are contained within this brochure and are available upon request.

    The boundary of the Tithe Barn and its associated amenity land, extending to 0.75 acres (0.3 ha) is indicatively illustrated within the sales plans. The Tithe barn is available for purchase in isolation or as part of the wider development. Please contact the agents for further information.

This is a truly exceptional opportunity to create a very special home in a sought after east Oxfordshire village within an hour of London.
