A Grade II Regency Manor House - Literary gem in the Chilterns

Location

Troy is situated in the middle of farmland south of the pretty village of Ewelme, in the Chiltern Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in South Oxfordshire. The village rises up to the fine Church of England parish church of Saint Mary where Thomas Chaucer, Alice de la Pole and Jerome K Jerome are buried. It is also home to the oldest continually operating primary school in the country, opened in 1440.

Henley on Thames is 9 miles away and provides extensive amentities and leisure pursuits. Less than 3 miles west is the attractive market town of Wallingford, on the banks of the River Thames, convenient for local independent shops, restaurants, cafes and a large Waitrose. Troy's stunningly rural location, reached via hedgerow flanked lanes belies its proximity to major transport links: junction 6 on the M40 is less than 10 miles away and trains from Didcot Parkway (10 miles) take 45 mins to London Paddington. Reading (13 miles away) will provide direct connections to London's Crossrail once it is completed. Ewelme has also recently been given access to high speed broadband, one of the first rural parishes in Oxfordshire to benefit. London is just 45 miles distant.

Troy is ideally situated for some of the best schools in the country; Independent schools in the immediate area include all those in Oxford (16 miles away), Moulsford Prep School, Cranford House, The Oratory Prep and Public School, Downe House, Radley College, Abingdon School and the European School in Abingdon, Wycombe Abbey for Girls in High Wycombe, Pangbourne College, Bradfield College, Wellington College and Eton College.

Leisure facilities are within easy reach, including racing at Newbury, rowing at Henley Royal Regatta, beautiful walking and riding on the many bridleways and footpaths near the property as well as in and around the Icknield Way and the Chiltern Hills.
