Full description

Tenure: Freehold

It is rare to find houses so completely tucked away on their own and this substantial period farmhouse provides such a rural idyll.

Traditionally arranged over two floors, the ground floor comprises a welcoming reception hall with a cloakroom, providing access to a family room on one side and a dining room on the other. The dining room leads through to the sitting room and they share a double sided open fireplace. To the rear is a kitchen/breakfast room with an AGA and adjacent utility room.

To the first floor a landing with french doors to a Juliet balcony serves four bedrooms and a family bathroom. The second bedroom has french doors to a rearward facing balcony affording fine and far reaching countryside views, as does much of the accommodation.


The property is located about a mile outside the pretty hilltop village of Oving, on a no through road.

The village of Oving, situated about 5 miles north of Aylesbury, has an active social and sporting calendar and boasts the well known Black Boy Inn. The recreation ground (with tennis courts) extends to about 7.4 acres and has a new community hall.

Further facilities can be found in the nearby villages of Whitchurch and North Marston. Ramhill Farmhouse is situated within the catchment area for all three Aylesbury Grammar Schools and also the well renowned Whitchurch Combined School, rated 'outstanding' in its latest Ofsted report. The house is also conveniently located for many popular private schools including Swanbourne House School, Stowe and Berkhamsted.

Oving is convenient for the rail commuter service at Aylesbury Vale Parkway (6 miles) to Marylebone (from 60 minutes). For Euston there is a station at Leighton Buzzard (10 miles distant) with the journey from 30 minutes. The M40 is approximately 17 miles away.


Accessed by a long drive, the property occupies a generous garden plot with ample parking. The drive also provides access to the neighbouring land.

Laid to lawn with paved patio, the maturing gardens and grounds are an excellent vantage point from which to appreciate the far reaching countryside views.
