A handsome stone house with share of indoor pool and tennis court in this most sought after village location


The property lies in a peaceful setting within the popular village of Combe, which is a very pretty village with a thriving, friendly community. It provides a parish church, public house overlooking the village green and it is also home to the Combe Reading Room and a renowned primary school. The market towns of Charlbury and Woodstock provide an excellent range of shops and amenities and there is also good access to Oxford and Witney. The railway station in Long Hanborough provides services to Oxford and London, Paddington, in about 1 hour and 10 minutes, and there is also a small station at Combe Halt. Junction 9 of the M40 is approximately 13 miles away.


Newcote is part of a small, select development that was built in 1987 by the well respected Oxfordshire builders, Benfield & Loxley. The 5 modern houses and an existing period property all share and benefit from an indoor pool and tennis court.
Built in natural stone with dressed stone lintels over oak windows, Newcote, which now requires some updating, offers excellent family accommodation over two floors. A recessed porch opens on to the entrance hall with a galleried landing and double doors leading to the sitting room. The sitting room is triple aspect with an open fireplace with a stone mantel and surround. On the west end of the house is a conservatory also with French doors to the garden.

The kitchen has a breakfast bar and there is a double oven, hob and fridge. Off the kitchen is a utility/boot room giving access to the double garage, front and rear gardens and the second stair case which leads to a bedroom and bathroom. This room could be ideal for an au pair or teenager.
The master bedroom is over the sitting room and has en suite dressing room and bathroom.

Combe Gate is approached via an automated gated entrance. To the side of the drive are the tennis court and indoor swimming pool (15m x 4m) which has a separate sauna, changing room, WC and shower. French doors from the pool house open on to a terrace over looking the tennis court.
The gardens for Newcote extend to about 178' x 70' (54m x 21m) and are part walled with a good degree of privacy. There is a lawn, terrace and deep mature borders.

Service Charge
The 6 dwellings currently each contribute £600 per quarter towards the running and maintenance of the swimming pool and tennis court.
