The adjacent bathroom has a bath with mixer taps, heated towel rail hand basin and low flush WC, extract fan and electric shaving point. Ceramic tiled surrounds. The property benefits from electric heating and sealed unit double glazing.
As the name implies, Parklands comprises of approximately 23 acres of parkland surrounding the impressive redbrick Victorian mansion Oaken Holt (now a residential care home and famous as the location of the hit 1990s BBC sitcom "waiting for God"). It is approached via a sweeping tree-lined drive that leads to an area of residents' parking that is available on a first-come, first serve basis. There are views towards far more reservoir from the elevated gardens and there is a bus stop at the foot of the drive served by frequent buses to Oxford and Witney.
 

Situation Located in the Royal County of Berkshire until the local government boundary changes of 1974, Farmoor lies approximately 3 ½ miles west of the dreaming spires of Oxford. The village has a shop (that specializes in the sale of foodstuffs for the South African diaspora). It is perhaps most famous for the reservoir built in the late '60s and extended in the 1970s that features a number of wetland nature areas, trout fishing as well as a thriving sailing club. There is a countryside walk around the perimeter of the reservoir. There is also a Woman's Institute, photography group and indoor bowls club. Further information is available online http://www.farmoor.org/ 

Tenure The property benefits from the remainder of a 99 year lease granted 1st November 1985 with a peppercorn ground rent. We have been advised that an extension of 90 years could be purchased for a premium of £8,150 plus costs (estimated to be £1,392). The seller advises us that there are monthly outgoings of £98.68 and an annual maintenance charge of £190.
