A notable and historical gem.
Late 17th century Grade II listed detached house (Date stone 1695).
Stone construction under a pitched Welsh grey slate covered roof.
Wealth of period features including open fireplaces, exposed timbers, window seats, leaded lights, deep window boards, shutters.
The house is in need of moderate modernisation and, given the size of the plot, offers tremendous scope to extend the house and/or redesign the conservatory, subject to the relevant consents.
Versatile accommodation provided by a separate music room in the garage building opposite. This is currently used as a reception room, but would be ideal for working from home or studio. There is potential to incorporate the adjoining garage to create a separate annexe, subject to the relevant consents.
Extensive level partly walled gardens lie to the east and south interspersed with various shrubs and trees. As a result, whilst the house is positioned in the heart of the village, when you close the gates it feels so much more private. The rear elevation faces south with several doors opening out onto the south facing terrace that runs the length of the house, ideal for summer entertaining. Covered well.
Beyond there is a delightful, partly walled, inner facing garden with outdoor heated swimming pool.
There is an additional access point onto the village lane on the southern boundary.
Key attributes are:-
- Easy access to Soho Farmhouse, mainline railway station and M40 at Banbury, together with excellent local schooling at Great Tew, Hook Norton and beyond.
- Versatile accommodation.
- Scope to extend, improve or to just put your own stamp on.
- Extensive gardens.
- Swimming pool.
- Delightful character and period features.
- This is very much village living yet with plenty of space and privacy.
- In all about 0.9 acre.
