An excellent detached family house with flexible accommodation in a picturesque village location


Berrick Salome is a delightful and peaceful south Oxfordshire village with a strong community spirit. Within the village is The Chequers Public House and the Grade II* listed St Helen's Church. Various sporting activities and social events are organised in conjunction with the neighbouring villages of Berrick Prior, Roke and Rokemarsh and the surrounding countryside offers many fine walks and cycle routes.

The nearby village of Benson is some two miles away and has a supermarket, chemist and primary school. Approximately seven miles from Balnagowan is the pretty market town of Wallingford, which provides more comprehensive facilities including regular markets, The Corn Exchange Theatre and Cinema and a range of shops. Junction 7 of the M40 is seven miles away and there are mainline rail services from Haddenham and Thame Parkway to London Marylebone and Didcot Parkway to London Paddington.

Abingdon and Oxford provide an array of well regarded state and private schools, such as St Laurence C of E Primary School in Warborough and Wallingford School (both rated 'Good' by Ofsted at their last inspection) Cothill House and Chandlings Manor, Abingdon Prep, The School of St Helen and St Katharine, Abingdon School, Headington School, Oxford High School, The Dragon and Radley College.


Built in about 1975 with later additions, Balnagowan is an impressive detached family house set in attractive gardens. Of particular merit is the light and spacious sitting room which is double aspect and has doors to the garden and conservatory, which provides a sheltered vantage point from which to enjoy views of the gardens during cooler months. Also on the ground floor is a dining room and well appointed kitchen/breakfast room. A door from the kitchen leads out to an interconnecting utility area that provides access to the study and garaging beyond.

On the first floor there are four bedrooms, a bathroom and separate shower room. The master bedroom has fitted wardrobes and glazed door that opens onto a lovely balcony with views of the garden and paddocks beyond.

To the front of the property is a gravelled parking area which opens on to carport, double garage and a large third garage with workshop area. Subject to the appropriate consents, this area may lend itself to additional accommodation and even a self-contained annexe.

The property sits in about half an acre of gardens. The west-facing rear garden has lovely views of the neighbouring paddocks and is predominantly laid to lawn, interspersed with mature shrubs and trees including willow, ash and cherry. A meandering brook traversed by a small bridge runs to the south-west of the property and provides an additional point of interest in the garden.

Note: Superfast broadband due.
