An impressive detached home in a peaceful rural position

Moreton House is an impressive family home with a converted barn, four stables and tennis court, set in 9 acres in a peaceful rural location. The main house offers six bedrooms and five reception rooms with plenty of natural light, high-quality fittings and clean, neutral d├ęcor throughout. In addition, there is a garden machinery shed and a further shed. Downstairs the main ground floor reception rooms offer highly flexible living. The semi open-plan kitchen leads onto sitting area and the dining room. The sitting area with its glass roof and French doors leads out onto the sizeable rear terrace. The kitchen itself has fitted units in white, a breakfast bar and an Aga, as well as integrated appliances. The triple aspect drawing room at the rear has an open fireplace, tiled flooring and two sets of French doors opening onto the terrace and the rear garden. At the front is a comfortable sitting room with charming exposed timber beams and an original stone-built fireplace with a log burner. There is a further family room (currently being used as an office) and a delightful library area. Upstairs includes an extensive principal bedroom with built-in wardrobes and an ensuite shower room. In addition, there are five, well-presented double bedrooms, a desk space, family bathroom and an additional shower room.

This property has 9.12 acres of land.


At the front of the property, five-bar wooden gates provide two entrances, onto the gravel driveway and pathway leading to the entrance. There is plenty of parking space in front of the detached double garage, as well as front garden with an area of lawn, beds of lavender and border hedgerows. At the rear, the garden includes a terrace for al fresco dining and an expansive, level lawn which extends to approximately 200ft and is dotted and bordered with various trees, shrubs and hedgerows. At the end of the lawn there is a Barn/party room with its own terrace, and beyond that, a hard tennis court. There are also two timber-framed stables blocks and open fields and fenced paddocks, which are ideal for sheep and horses.


The house is on the edge of the village, a lovely 700 yard walk from the landmark Thames-side pubs, the Maybush and the Rose Revived. The village of Northmoor is an attractive, vibrant and rural parish lying between the rivers Thames and Windrush. Northmoor has a 13th century parish church dedicated to St Denys, a village hall which doubles as a community meeting place and Christmas pantomime venue, and The Ferryman Inn at nearby Bablock Hythe. The village is set amongst fields, mostly given to raising cattle and sheep, in a part of the Upper Thames valley which has been designated an Environmentally Sensitive Conservation Area. Walkers and cyclists have many bridleways and footpaths. The village is on the Oxfordshire cycle path and public footpaths connect with the Thames Path (a 15-minute walk away) and Northmoor Lock. The nearby villages of Standlake and Stanton Harcourt provide local amenities including general store, pubs, primary school. Further afield Oxford, Abingdon and Witney provide more extensive leisure, retail and cultural facilities. Mainline railway services to London Paddington can be taken from Didcot Parkway or nearby Hanborough or to London Marylebone from Oxford Parkway. The nearest motorway/main road connections can be made via the M40 Junction 8A or 9 via the A34, Oxford ring road. There is an unrivalled selection of independent schools for girls and boys at all levels in the area including The Dragon School, Summerfields, Radley, St. Edward's, Abingdon, Chandlings Manor, Cokethorpe (very local), Oxford High, Cothill, St. Helens and St. Katherine's, Headington and St. Hughes to name a few. Leisure activities in the area include golf at nearby Frilford Heath (5.5 miles) and sailing at Farmoor. There is a cricket club in nearby Standlake and the Lincoln Park Leisure Centre, which has two indoor swimming pools with spas and saunas. The village is also conveniently located for well-known Estelle Manor, located just outside Eynsham.


(OX29 5SY) From Oxford, head west on the A420 at the Kingston Bagpuize Roundabout, take the third exit onto the A415 towards Witney. Cross the river at the Maybush and Rose Revived pubs and turn immediate right onto Moreton Lane, and you will find the property on the left after about 700 yards.
