Beautiful garden

Darville House is an elegant Grade II listed village house with good sized family accommodation spread over three floors. The layout can be seen from the floor plan, suffice to say the ground floor living and entertaining space is particularly generous with a wonderful main double reception room. The house was originally an Inn and has many features synonymous with its age, which is understood to be early 18th century. There is planning consent to enlarge the ground floor with a Garden room/orangery overlooking the garden, increasing the size and style of what is already in place.

The gardens are a particular feature, beautifully laid out, stocked and south facing over open farmland. There is a heated outdoor swimming pool and a double garage with EV charging. In all about 1 acre.


Lower Heyford is a pretty village situated in the popular Cherwell valley, between Oxford and Banbury. With narrow boat hire on the Oxford canal there is also a waterfront café, a parish church, country pub and small shop.

A wider range of services and amenities can be found in the nearby towns of Woodstock and Deddington. There are lovely walks including along the Canal towpath and river.

Communication is very good with a mainline station in the village with services to Oxford, Birmingham, Banbury and London Paddington. The Bicester stations provide more regular services to London and Birmingham. Bus services run to Oxford and Bicester and the M40 (J9 and J10) is within convenient reach.

With primary and secondary schools in Upper Heyford and popular primary school in nearby Steeple Aston the property is also well located for schools. The Oxford schools are within reach with Bloxham, Tudor Hall and Bruern Abbey schools being more local.
