Accommodation - Only 1 hour from London by train, in a most sought after rural location, stands this most delightful detached residence in its own magical walled garden, offering excellent potential for further improvement.

The property was originally a fifteenth century tithe barn before being owned in 1776 by one of the Knibb family descendants of the famous Oxfordshire clockmakers. It has also briefly been a public house, called The Mill & the Plough, before becoming the vicarage in the 1800s. The present owners purchased the property in 1978, altering the interior to create a family home which is full of character.

To the ground floor, the entrance hall, which is approached through a feature arched door, has stairs rising to the upper floor and provides access to a downstairs shower room, a study which is ideal for those who like to work from home. A formal dining room with a lovely large window overlooking the garden which is the perfect setting for dinner parties and an excellent drawing room which has two windows to the front with shutters, one of which being French doors leading to the garden, and large feature archways which make the room come to life.

From the drawing room, another archway provides access to the breakfast kitchen which has an Aga, a large walk in pantry, a window overlooking the garden and a door leading to a useful utility room which also has a door opening out to the patio area.

To the first floor, there are four double bedrooms, all full of superb character features overlooking the beautiful walled garden and there are also two well-appointed bathrooms, one en-suite.

Outside - The property is set in a beautiful magical, walled garden, being very secluded and private. There is a good-sized lawn which has many mature trees and flower borders with pleasing pathways around to a vegetable garden. To the side there is a charming patio area with built-in barbeque.

This is a very rare opportunity to own an incredibly unique property which is steeped in history so an internal viewing is essential.

EPC rating G.
