Full description

Blenheim Farm House and Barns offers an opportunity to own a spacious character home or a property with attached self-contained annexeand a part converted detached coachhouse with separate services situated in c.2 acres of gardens with off road parking. The property is offered with immediate vacant possession.

Once the centre of Wychwood forest, the thriving town of Charlbury is now a much sought after location for those searching for a setting that is not only extremely beautiful but also wonderfully convenient. The town is nestled in the Evenlode valley, on the edge of the Cotswolds, and benefits from a superb array of shops and amenities, a mainline station with fast services to Oxford and London as well as excellent road links. It is a fabulous location that would be terribly hard to better.

Blenheim Farm House and Blenheim Farm Barns is a stunning period property that occupies an enviable position on the edge of town, a spot that allows one to truly enjoy the very best of both worlds. The original cottage is believed to date back to between the late 17th and early 18th century, and to this day retains a huge amount of character and charm. In later years it was linked to the adjacent barn and a beautiful oak-framed garden room was added, transforming the house into a light, bright and exceptionally spacious family home. The décor is described as something of a blank canvass, with period features such as exposed stone and beams melding beautifully with a neutral colour pallet and contemporary fixtures and fitting, and solar panelling has been added to a section of the house to make it more economical to run.

The accommodation is wonderfully flexible, and the current owner says that as there are two kitchens and a number of reception rooms, it would be terribly easy to create a self-contained annex wing for teenagers, elderly relatives or visiting friends, should one so desire. The property also benefits from a two-storey coach house, which again has the potential to be used for anything from self-contained accommodation to a home office or studio.

This beautiful home sits within just under two acres of sprawling grounds, which the current owner describes as truly magical. There is a pretty courtyard adjacent to the main house, which is the ideal spot for al fresco dining, beyond which is a more formal section of the garden. An archway then leads to an expanse of lawn through which a stream gently meanders, and at the very end of the garden there is a quite substantial paddock. A mature border of hedging and trees borders the entire space, and so both the house and grounds have a wonderful feeling of peace and tranquillity.

This is quite simply a stunning property that sits in a superb location. It has been a much-loved family home for many years, but it is now ready for the next chapter in its life.
