A very well presented barn conversion, with views, offering spacious accommodation ideal for family living.
Overthorpe is a popular village situated on the borders of South Northamptonshire and North Oxfordshire, in a Conservation Area close to both the market town of Banbury and the thriving village of Middleton Cheney. The property has excellent access to M40 motorway at Junction 11.

There is a regular rail service to London Marylebone from Banbury in approximately 1 hour. The village is well placed for local and independent schools at all levels. Preparatory schools include Carrdus (about 1 Mile) and Winchester House (Brackley). Public schools nearby include Bloxham, Stowe and Tudor Hall. Other schools include a C of E primary school and Chenderit secondary school, both in Middleton Cheney. Good connection to numerous footpaths – ideal for dog walking.

Castle Barn is approached via a tree lined driveway, leading to a group of three individually secluded properties, all private, with fabulous countryside views.

The property was converted in 1998, and has been greatly updated and improved by the current owners resulting in a well presented, flexible and spacious home, perfect for family living.

The double height vaulted entrance hall, with tiled floor and fireplace, creates an impressive first impression – ideal for entertaining. The utility room and cloakroom lead off. The drawing room has a shared woodburner (with the dining room). The dining room has a wooden floor and leads to the kitchen, which has a good range of units, an island, and a door to the garden. Completing the ground floor is a good sized library, with rear lobby leading to the garden.

On the first floor, the master bedroom suite has a vaulted ceiling with velux windows, with a dressing room and en suite bathroom. Glazed double doors open to a balcony with fabulous southerly views over the Cherwell Valley. There are three further double bedrooms (one with en suite), a family bathroom and a useful open study area.

The gardens are private with established borders and a number of fruit trees. To the south is a 12 x 30ft heated swimming pool with summer house and a large terrace – the perfect place to relax and entertain.
