Victorian house with approved planning for a contemporary extension and wonderful views across farmland


Overdale occupies a wonderful position on the edge of Northend Common. Northend stands high in the Chiltern hills in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty above the Stonor Valley where there is an abundance of walks and wildlife. It is a sought after village and there is excellent access via Christmas Common to J5 or J6 of the M40 to head north to Oxford or to High Wycombe and London. The local market towns of Henley-on-Thames and Watlington have excellent day to day facilities, with Oxford, Marlow, High Wycombe and Reading providing excellent schooling, recreational and educational facilities. The Oxford Tube bus link operates from J6 at Lewknor every 24 hours between London and Oxford, and the best regional main line train services are either from Princes Risborough, High Wycombe or Henley-on-Thames.

Excellent schooling in the area includes the Wycombe Abbey School for Girls, the Royal Grammar School at High Wycombe, St Pirans at Maidenhead, Sir William Borlase's Grammar School in Marlow, Rupert House Preparatory School in Henley, as well as all the Oxford schools including The Dragon, Headington School for Girls, Cothill House Preparatory School and Summerfields School.


The house benefits from well-planned accommodation arranged over two floors and taking full advantage of the lovely views over the large gardens and countryside beyond. Overdale, with its tremendous planning permission (Ref: 14/06258/FUL), presents a wonderful opportunity for those who want to create something really special, to demolish the south-west part of the main dwelling house, the garage, shared entrance porch and removal of the tennis court, and to construct a contemporary 2-storey rear extension with new garden wall, new detached garage and workshop and with alterations to the landscaping to create an enhanced courtyard and associated external and internal alterations. Richard Parr Associates have produced an excellent scheme to make the very best of the views and combine the traditional Victorian house with a stunning modern extension, increasing the square footage to accommodation that, when finished, will provide about 4090sq ft (including garage and workshop plot). As it stands Overdale is a lovely home.

Gardens and Grounds
The property is approached from a track off the village road and across part of the common. Currently there is a large double garage with storage to the rear along with an adjacent summerhouse. The main house sits very well on its plot to make the very best of the views and, whilst there are established gardens and grounds of approximately 2 acres, there is obviously great opportunity to change these under the new planning permission.

Square Footage: 2,185 sq ft
Acreage: 2 Acres


From Henley-on-Thames proceed north along the Fairmile (A4120) towards Oxford. At the top of the Fairmile fork right up the Stonor valley (B480) signposted Assendon and Stonor. Proceed to the village of Stonor, and fork right after the entrance to Stonor Park, signposted Turville Heath and Northend. Proceed through the lime avenue at Turville Heath and up onto North End Common, following the road across the common and uphill bearing left out of the village. The entrance to Overdale will be found after a few hundred yards on the left-hand side, clearly marked. Turn left across the common and the house will be found in front of you.
