Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Cowleaze Farmhouse offers a purchaser the potential to renovate and create a stunning family home, with outbuildings and land which have outstanding views of the Uffington White Horse, close to the desirable Downland villages of Woolstone and Uffington.

The main house offers a wealth of space and opportunity.  The front door leads into an entrance hall which gives access to two reception rooms at the front of the house.  Both reception rooms lead to the rear of the house where there is a large utility room, 2 rear lobbies and the kitchen which is fitted with a range of units, an island unit and an Alpha range which provides central heating and a means of cooking.  To the side of the property is an extension which leads to a lower ground floor room, which has its own access to outside, together with a cloakroom.  Above the lower ground floor is a mid-level room, also accessed from the kitchen which could be used as a dining room, family room or perhaps a home office.

Stairs from the hall lead to the first floor where there are two large bedrooms at the front of the property, both with ensuite bathrooms.  To the rear are two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.  Stairs from the landing lead up to the second floor where there are two further bedrooms and a small bathroom.

Adjoining the property are a number of outbuildings which have the potential to be included within the living space of the main house, or separated to potentially create an annexe.  This property offers a great deal of flexibility and opportunity to create a stunning family home.

To the front right hand side of the property is a driveway which leads to a gravelled parking area.  The gardens are mature and lay predominantly to the front of the property, with a gate providing access to an adjoining paddock and further outbuildings.

Cowleaze Farmhouse is freehold and is connected to mains water (via a private supply) and electric. There is oil fired central heating as well as private drainage. The paddock will be subject to an overage clause in the event planning is secured for any additional dwellings.

The Farmhouse is within Cowleaze Farm, a small cluster of barns with two other dwellings, and sits in the foothills of the historic White Horse Hill and the Ridgeway close to the popular villages of Woolstone (1.4 miles) and Uffington (1.7 miles) in the Vale of the White Horse, just north of the Berkshire Downs.

Uffington has a number of historical connections with the Thomas Hughes Museum named after the author who was born in Uffington Vicarage and, the Poet Laureate, Sir John Betjeman,  having  also lived in the village. It boasts a majestic church regarded as the Cathedral of the Vale, a well-equipped village store with Post Office, a popular primary school and pre-school, together with a lovely traditional public house, village hall, community sports ground and a host of community organisations.

The area has good road links to Oxford (15 miles) and Swindon (11 miles) via the A420, with more local facilities and secondary schools available in the nearby market towns of Faringdon (6 miles) and Wantage (8 miles). Major rail links to London and the west are available from Swindon, Didcot and Oxford. The village is well positioned for a number of excellent independent schools such as St Hugh’s and Pinewood Prep schools, as well as Abingdon School, Radley College, Our Ladies and St Helens & St Katharine’s, all of which are in and around Abingdon (15 miles).
