Dormon’s Barn is situated down a long gravelled driveway, on the edge of the small and sought-after village of Binfield Heath and surrounded by some of South Oxfordshire’s prettiest countryside. The village has a local shop and a thriving community with an annual Flower and Dog Show, which is held in the adjacent fields, and various village societies and clubs. Henley-in-Thames is 2.6 miles distant and provides comprehensive shopping, leisure and recreational facilities including riverside pubs and restaurants, a Waitrose, independent delicatessens and cafés. Reading (3.6 miles) has more extensive amenities and a mainline service to London, Paddington (from 29 mins) with Crossrail allowing direct access to the City, Canary Wharf, the West End and Heathrow from 2019. Henley railway station and nearby Shiplake station also give mainline access via Twyford. The area is well served for schools, including Shiplake College, Reading Blue Coat, The Oratory and Queen Anne's in Caversham. The M4 is about 8 miles away and connects to the M40, M3 and M25 motorway network. The adjacent countryside offers miles of extensive walking and riding and there are superb footpaths and bridleways direct from Dormon’s Barn.
From the spacious reception room, glazed doors lead to the large kitchen/breakfast room. This is a lovely bright double aspect room with a high vaulted ceiling and double doors leading to the swimming pool courtyard. There is an Oak floor, a range of cream wall and floor cabinets, fridge/freezer, a range cooker and space for a farmhouse kitchen table and sofas. There are lovely views across the fields. The drawing room again has a vaulted ceiling and windows and doors to both sides, flooding the room with light. Doors lead to the courtyard and pool. There is a wood burning stove to one end and a spiral staircase leads to the mezzanine study situated in the old hay loft. There is a family/TV room with doors leading to the garden and there is a large utility and boot room. The integral double garage has potential to create extra accommodation, subject to the usual consents. The bedrooms are all off a main corridor and overlook either the gardens or the pool courtyard. The master bedroom has a fine view across the fields. There are fitted wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom with shower and bath. There are three further bedrooms and a well-fitted family bathroom. The attached annexe comprises a sitting room with kitchenette, a shower room and a bedroom. This has a separate access from the courtyard or from the bedroom corridor and could easily be incorporated in to the main house, giving a total of 6 bedrooms if required.
From the lane, a five bar gate with entry phone system leads to the long drive, parking area and double garage. A further five bar gate leads to the main paddock area and round to the field shelter. Beyond this, there is a woodland area with Horse Chestnut and Beech trees and a Cherry and Apple orchard. The gardens are charming and are full of cottage garden plants, mature trees and shrubs. There is a kitchen garden and a secure run for a Hen house. On the other side of the house is the central courtyard with the swimming pool and sun terrace. This is a fine space for entertaining and has been the subject of many family barbecues and parties. There are two brick outbuildings, one housing the pool equipment. The whole amounts to about 1.4 acres. *Agent’s note: the current owner rents a further 4.5 acre pony paddock which adjoins Dorman’s Barn land which may be available to rent. Please also note that since the photographs were taken, a superb new private driveway has been added.
