Full description


Location - Heythrop is a highly desirable and tranquil model village, which was the former home of the famous Heythrop Hunt and point to point. Situated on the outskirts of Chipping Norton which is a very attractive, well-known and thriving Market Town, serving a wide rural area of the Oxfordshire Cotswolds. It offers an extensive range of shops including High Street names, boutiques, bookshops and antique shops and other facilities such as two Doctors Surgeries and a New Hospital, a Theatre, Swimming Pool and Leisure Centre, Golf Course, and excellent Primary and Secondary Schools. It is conveniently situated, being within easy travelling distance of Banbury (14 miles with M40 link), Oxford (25 miles) and Stratford-upon-Avon (24 miles). Main line train services to London (Paddington) are available from Charlbury and Kingham Stations which are both within just over 5 miles (all distances are approximate).

Directions - Leaving Chipping Norton take the A361 Banbury Road. At the roundabout turn right onto the A44, and thereafter turn left, signposted Heythrop. Continue into the village, and the Lodge will be found directly ahead, adjacent to the church.

The Property - The Lodge is a handsome detached stone built residence, constructed in 1879 by order of Colonel Albert Brassey, son of the railway, engineering, and building materials magnate, Thomas Brassey, and extended some years ago by the current owners, to provide a versatile family home, which now requires refurbishment, thus offering a new owner the opportunity to have a stylish and unique home in this idyllic Oxfordshire model village on the outskirts of Chipping Norton.
