Enviable rural setting close to Oxford
Set in a wonderful rural position on the edge of Boars Hill about half a mile from Foxcombe Road, Stable Barn is one of a small cluster of dwellings comprising an original farmhouse, converted barns and outbuildings. In a green belt area, it enjoys fabulous views of open rolling Oxfordshire countryside and yet is close to the centre of Oxford.
Local amenities are found in the neighbouring village of Wootton, with more comprehensive facilities in Abingdon and the city of Oxford which offers extensive recreational and internationally renowned cultural facilities. The property enjoys easy access to a wonderful network of footpaths and bridleways. Stable Barn is also well located for an excellent range of state and independent schools for all ages in Oxford and Abingdon including: The Dragon, Chandlings, The Manor, Cothill, St Helen & St Katherine, Magdalen, Oxford High, Abingdon, Radley, Headington and St Edwards. The nearby arterial route of the A34 gives access to the M4 (J13) to the south and the M40 (J9) to the north. Regular train services run either from Didcot (London
Paddington about 45 minutes), or Oxford Parkway (London Marylebone, about 56 minutes).
Stable Barn, formerly part of Chilswell Farm, is Grade II listed and was converted in 2005. Of stone construction beneath a pitched tile roof today it combines period features with modern comforts.
