A modern link detached house, extended in recent years and now providing spacious accommodation but offering scope for some further improvements. The house is situated at the very end of a small cul-de-sac within easy reach of the many facilities offered by this popular village and backing on to open farm land.

King Sutton is about five miles South East of Banbury but offers a good range of local facilities including a Primary school of high repute with Secondary schooling available at the popular Chenderit School in Middleton Cheney. In addition there is a Co-operative convenience store, post office, church and chapel as well as a halt on the Banbury to Bicester (Marylebone) for the Oxford rail line. Junctions on the M40 will be found both at Banbury to the North of Ardley about six miles South.

From the entrance a hall a doorway gives access to the FORMER GARAGE which has been floored and partitioned to create two useful rooms. The up and over door has been retained and it is thought this could be turned back in to a garage if required.

OUTSIDE: The property stands back from the end of the cul-de-sac behind a lawned front garden with concrete driveway affording parking. A gated sideway leads to the rear where there will be found a small garden, backing on to the fields. In addition, the property also owns a small semicircular area of ground on the other side of the cul-de-sac head presently disused and planted with conifers.

Directions: From Banbury travel South on the A4260 Oxford Road and after about two miles, immediately before Twyford, turn left where signed to Kings Sutton. Continue to the village and then turn left in to Sandringham Road. Continue in to Hampton Drive then right in to Balmoral Way. At the T junction turn left on Blenheim Rise and Kensington Close will be found on the right.

This is an extract of a letter from Ageas Insurance Ltd dated 26 April 2016 that should be read by any interested party prior to arranging to view the house:

'Unfortunately despite two sets of ground investigations we have not found evidence
indicating an obvious cause of subsidence damage (downward movement of the ground beneath the foundations). We have been able to rule out shrinkage of clay soil by the action of nearby tree roots and washing away of fine soil by leaking drains.

As a result of this the only possible cause of ongoing subsidence damage would be due of inherently weak sub soil beneath the foundations but the only way to be sure of this is to monitor the damage for 6 months. This should allow us to decide if there is any ongoing downward movement due to weak soil which in turn would allow us to accept a valid subsidence claim subject to an excess of £1000.00.

Equally if the monitoring shows no ongoing movement then we would advise the likely cause of the current damage to your property to either be historic settlement of the extensions onto their foundations, or movement due to the foundations being too shallow to support the structures on a long-term basis. Neither of these causes would be covered but at least if this was the case then the sale of the property could proceed unhindered, though without any definite confirmation of the cause of the damage or reassurance regarding any future progression of this damage.

If we monitor and confirm the cause to be subsidence then this would need to be explained to any future potential purchaser so that they understand the procedure and timescales for dealing with the repairs. They would also need to be advised that any buyer should apply to Ageas Insurance Ltd for cover in their own name as they may struggle to insure elsewhere with subsidence recorded.
