5 bedroom detached house for sale

Cowley Lodge, Preston Bissett


Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Situated in a stunning rural location, this 5 bedroom detached brick built farmhouse stands in approximately 1 acre of ground. Dating back to the early 19th century, this imposing building has been upgraded sympathetically over the years by the present owner, leaving scope for further conversions and extensions subject to current planning laws.

Consistent with a property of this age the ground floor accommodation includes a vaulted entrance hall with an attractive quarry tiled floor with stone steps leading down to a sizeable cellar. The dining room is an eloquent room with original wood flooring, ideal for entertaining, whilst the cosy living room`s main feature is the striking Inglenook fireplace. Tucked away behind this room is a double aspect study. The hall leads through to a traditional working farmhouse kitchen full of character with the Ager set into an Inglenook at one end and room for an enormous kitchen table at the other. Beyond the cloakroom and utility lies a light and spacious family room converted from the old dairy.

On the upper level the master bedroom benefits from an ensuite bathroom, the family bathroom been recently refitted. All 5 bedrooms are double rooms, most with built in wardrobes and all have breathtaking views over the countryside. Outside the farmhouse is approached via a farm track which also serves farm buildings. The house is set back from the road with garden to all sides, surrounded by farmland. There is an outbuilding attached to the house and an old detached stable block in the grounds, both of which are ripe for conversion.

Cowley Lodge is situated back from the road which services Preston Bissett and Calvert/Twyford. This is a rare opportunity to acquire an impressive former farmhouse set in an idyllic rural spot yet within a 20-30 min drive of major rail and motorway road links with train stations in nearby Aylesbury and Bicester.
