An exquisite detached stone period house conveniently located for Oxford and London


Cripps Barn is idyllically located in the conservation area of the very attractive ancient village of Beckley. The village has a well regarded thriving primary school, an attractive Medieval church, a public house, village hall and sports field (with a tennis court).
Situated a few miles outside Oxford, on the edge of Otmoor and its bird reserve, within an area of great landscape value, the village offers fast and easy access to the comprehensive amenities of Headington, Summertown and North Oxford.
It is also extremely well located with respect to road travel via the A40/M40 to London and the north, and to the south via the A34. Equally, rail travel is easily accessible with a mainline local station at Islip (3 miles) to Oxford and London Marylebone.


Cripps Barn is a fascinating individual period stone house. Skilfully and thoughtfully extended and modernised over the years, it offers exceptionally well presented versatile accommodation which has modern amenities combined with great charm and character. Features include vaulted ceilings, oak and stone flagged flooring, bespoke oak doors, beamed fireplaces (one with wood burning stove), modern bathrooms and bespoke fitted kitchen with Aga.

A floor plan is provided within these particulars, detailing the approximate size, layout and orientation of the accommodation. The photographs give some indication of the presentation and appeal of the property internally.

Externally, the property enjoys great privacy and is not overlooked. It is built of attractive stone elevations under a tiled roof and is set in a slightly elevated position, side on to the road.
The property has a wide gravelled recess providing parking for two cars with a gate leading to the completely enclosed level garden area immediately outside the house which is attractively landscaped with terraced areas, lawn, hedging and topiary. A stepped pathway leads to a further area of elevated garden, again very private, which offers far reaching views across the village and Otmoor. This area is laid to lawn with hedging and has a garden shed. Between the two areas, there is an inclined area of garden which is essentially left natural and uncultivated, with ground cover and trees.

Mains water and electricity connected. Private drainage. Oil central heating.

Square Footage: 2,077 sq ft
