Description

Foxglove Farm commands an edge of village position surrounded by open countryside and uninterrupted views.
Built in 1954 of a stone construction under a pitched tiled roof, it has been almost doubled in size by the current owners creating comfortable family accommodation in an enviable position. Most significantly, the house enjoys a tremendous feeling of space and privacy created by ample gardens and grounds, and glorious views across the Evenlode Valley.
Whilst extensively modernised and extended by the current owners, there is further scope for the incoming purchaser to stamp their own identity with potential to create a more open plan kitchen/ breakfast room in the dining room and play room, as the house has been designed with this in mind.
Elegant drawing room with open fire and doors opening out to the south facing terrace and enclosed gardens.
Spiral wine cellar with concealed door.
Principal bedroom with built in wardrobes and double doors leading to a generous en-suite bathroom. Guest bedroom with en-suite bathroom. Three further bedrooms and family bathroom.

OUTSIDE

Useful range of outbuildings including a two bay car port, workshop and two stables.
Implemented planning permission for a workshop/ studio.
The house sits centrally within mature landscaped gardens which are predominantly laid to lawn with various trees, hedges and borders interspersed with box topiary. A stone terrace runs along the eastern and southern elevations. Vegetable garden with raised beds.
To the north and west of the property there is paddock grazing, orchard and tree plantations of about 8 acres.
In all about 9.3 acres.

This is a rare opportunity to purchase a superbly positioned house with space and privacy, in one of the most sought after addresses in the Cotswolds.

Directions

From Banbury take the A361 to Chipping Norton. Take the Burford Road out of the town, which is on the left as you reach the end of the High Street. Follow this road for approximately 3 miles, until you see a left turn signposted to Chadlington. Take this left turn and continue along the Chipping Norton Road for about half a mile, until you come to the bottom of a long hill just before you reach the village of Chadlington. At this point the driveway (concrete) to Foxglove Farm is to be found on the right. Follow the drive through a copse, over a bridge and Foxglove Farm is the first house on the right.
