Of interest to owner occupiers and developers

A fire damaged Historic Lock Cottage in need of restoration, situated on a plot of approximately 0.22 acres, benefitting from outstanding rural views - Vacant


The shell of the building remains largely intact and the current owners have had a structural survey which states, 'The condition of the external walls are very good, the brickwork is sound. The internal walls and the two chimneys are in good condition, the foundations are solid.' (Please refer to legal pack for further information.)

The lock and the bridge are listed, but the cottage itself is not listed. The property has been fully residential since c. 1984 but has previously incorporated a small craft shop. Potential purchasers should make their own enquiries as to the viability of business use.

The additional land the clients have purchased to the side includes a fair distance of canal frontage and subject to agreement with the canal and river trust you could create a private mooring next to the cottage (which a lot of the cottages further down have done) and the land to the rear gives scope to extend the cottage if desired (subject to requisite consents).


Grants Lock Cottage is a well known lock keeper's cottage set alongside the Oxford Canal, overlooking the beautiful countryside of the River Cherwell Valley near Twyford Wharf and Banbury.
