Farthinghoe is a conservation village located

market towns of Banbury and Brackley.

facilities including a good public house with
restaurant, a 12th century church, primary
school and Limes Farm shop and Tearoom
(www.limesfarm.com).

More village facilities are available in nearby
Middleton Cheney. Banbury and Brackley (with
a Waitrose) have more specialist requirements,
with more comprehensive facilities further afield
in Milton Keynes and Oxford.

There are close communication links within easy
reach, Banbury Train station within 6 miles and
the M40 within 5 miles.

A large gravelled driveway providing ample
parking, and access to the double garage with
electric doors. To the one end of the garage is a
spacious workshop with light and power. There
are wrought iron gates opening on to the large,
attractive garden, with a gravelled pathway to
one side, leading up to the house.

The gardens are a special feature of the property
and are predominately laid to lawn. They are
beautifully secluded with herbaceous borders
with many plants and shrubs, and there is
an entertaining terrace along the front of the
property.

The stone walled garden provides the property
with privacy and has a variety of mature trees,
herbaceous borders and a vegetable garden,
including apple trees.

The gardens are very much in keeping with the
attractive village, surrounded in local stone and
radiating English charm.
