A FINE, GRADE II LISTED FARMHOUSE IN A WONDERFUL RURAL LOCATION

This beautiful farmhouse, dating from c.1700, is located at the end of a village lane in extensive grounds of 4.33 acres with private lake. It has a number of extremely useful outbuildings, including an annexe, office, two double garages and a 365 sq ft barn that may offer scope for further conversion (STPP), set around a large gravelled courtyard and flagstone terrace.

The tastefully presented accommodation features a traditional farmhouse kitchen, and retains many period details including fireplaces and exposed beams. There are two principal reception rooms with the kitchen at the heart of the house forming a great family hub. The well balanced accommodation continues on the first floor with five double bedrooms and two bathrooms. A sizeable attic space, accessed via an original fixed staircase, could offer potential for further bedrooms and bathroom facilities.

The grounds extend to approximately 4.33 acres and are made up of formal gardens, paddock, an orchard and private lake with a stone bridge leading to an island. They are a wonderful amenity and a real haven for birds and wildlife. What could be better than sitting on your very own island enjoying a book or trying to catch a glimpse of a kingfisher hovering over the lake?

Merton is remarkably well placed for access to both road and rail links with junction 9 of the M40 approximately 7 miles away, and railway stations at Islip (4.1 miles), Bicester (4.7 miles) and Oxford Parkway (7.6 miles) serving London Marylebone, Birmingham Snowshill and Oxford. The cultural and commercial centre of Oxford has a wide range of shops, amenities and entertainment, as well as its' world renowned University and excellent independent schools including Oxford High, St Edwards, Magdalen and The Dragon.
