About this property

  • Rectory Farm is a most attractive and charming period farmhouse, listed Grade II, which has in recent years been attractively modernised and extended to create a lovely family home in a fantastic edge of village setting with views surrounded by its own land.

    Dating from the early 18th century with later additions, the farmhouse is built of limestone under a tiled roof and offers versatile accommodation, predominantly over two floors, with additional recently upgraded accommodation to the attic rooms. On the ground floor there is a good size drawing room, cosy second sitting room/snug and a practical interconnecting kitchen/dining/family room with a very useful laundry/ boot room off and a cellar.

    On the first floor there are four good sized bedrooms and a family bathroom with shower and the attic rooms have been arranged as another good bedroom and very generous second family bathroom with separate shower. The majority of the rooms enjoy a lovely outlook across the property's gardens and grounds and the countryside beyond. Adjacent to the house is a period stone outbuilding comprising garaging and stores and this has planning permission and listed building consent to provide ancillary accommodation. A long private driveway leads from the road to the house and passing between the house and the stone barn, the drive leads to the former farmyard with barns and stabling.

    Gardens and Grounds
    The main garden areas lie to the east, south and west of the house with panoramic views. The gardens are predominantly laid to lawn with mature trees and hedging.

    A site plan is provided showing the extent and location of the agricultural land which is enclosed by post and rail fencing and is essentially pastureland.

    Rectory Farm is perfect for those looking for a comfortable well proportioned family house with modern conveniences and character and enjoying a rural village location, yet within easy reach of Oxford and London.
