Lovely village house

Manor Farm house is an impressive stone built period house complemented by attractive gardens and paddock. The property has recently been sympathetically renovated with much attention to detail to create a stylish and beautiful family home with many period features throughout including fireplaces, sash windows with shutters, window seats and exposed beams. Arranged over three floors the spacious accommodation provides excellent family living and entertaining space. At ground floor level leading off the reception hall are the three principal reception rooms each with open fireplaces. In addition, there is a playroom/office. Arranged at the rear of the house with French doors opening to the garden, is the spacious and welcoming kitchen/breakfast room with utility/boot room beyond. The kitchen is fitted with an electric four oven AGA, plumbed American fridge/freezer, fitted cupboards including a larder, and a large island unit with integrated steam oven, gas hob, and sink with Quooker hot water tap. The cellar is accessed from the reception hall. There are six bedrooms and five bathrooms (3 en-suite). The principal bedroom is a particularly attractive room with fireplace and window seat. The sixth bedroom and a bathroom together with attic storage are on the second floor.

This property has 0.4 acres of land.

Outside

The property is approached via a gated and walled gravel driveway at the front of the house providing ample parking space. The gardens principally lie to the rear of the house providing a pretty setting mainly laid to lawn with well stocked borders, shrubs and trees. There is a west facing terrace from the kitchen/breakfast room. From the garden a gate gives access to the adjoining paddock with field shelter. The paddock has road access. There is a restriction on the paddock preventing residential development.

Situation

Manor Farm House lies within a Conservation Area in the heart of the attractive, rural, yet well positioned small village of Charney Bassett, which is approximately 13 miles south west of Oxford. The village comprises mostly period properties, as well as a parish church, public house, village hall, playground and playing field and an attractive village green. Communications are excellent, with access to Didcot Parkway Station, with a regular service to London Paddington in approximately 40 minutes. Junction 13 of the M4 is reached via the A34 or cross country through Lambourn. Day to day shopping and other facilities can be found in the market towns of Wantage, Faringdon, Abingdon and Witney. There is also good access to the excellent range of schools in both Oxford and Abingdon as well as St Hugh’s Preparatory School (4 miles).
