Merton is a conveniently located village lying to the north east of Oxford, and to the south of the bustling market town of Bicester and Bicester village. Both the A34 and M40 are within easy reach, and commuters can reach London in under an hour from Islip, Bicester North or Bicester town railway stations.

Merton is one of the several towns of Otmoor - an area of outstanding natural beauty and the property is an excellent base to explore this area. The village itself has many interesting character properties and a spendid church. The village is served by the very popular Charlton on Otmoor primary school, while local amenities including a shop and post office can be found in nearby Ambrosden.


Grayling house is one of the original houses within this village dating back to 1880, and has been sympathetically restored and extended by the current owners to create a spacious and versatile family home. The design, fixtures and fittings chosen are stylish and of high quality throughout, creating bright, open space which perfectly combines modern style wih period features.

Externally, the property is approached through an iron gate leading to private driveway and parking - opening onto gardens to the side and rear of the property. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn, with fruit trees and hedges to enclose.

At the far rear of the property lies a useful detatched annexe which features bathroom and fitted kitchen. Ideal for older children, dependents, an au pair, home office or to act as guest accomodation or study.
