The Rectory is a delightful detached house located on an expansive corner plot in this well placed village which lies at the foot of the Chilterns and on the edge of the Vale of Oxford. The village boasts a number of shops in addition to a 17th century town hall, all of which are in walking distance. The M40 is located 3 miles away - far enough to not be heard but close enough to be convenient.


Whilst offering scope for improvement, the accommodation is both well proportioned and well laid out. There is also an inherent character with many rooms exhibiting fireplaces and leaded windows. The ground floor provides 3 impressive reception rooms in addition to a kitchen with separate breakfast area. There are five bedrooms to the first floor with as family bathroom and separate WC. One of these bedrooms could provide en-suite a dressing facilities to make a master bedroom suite.


The property sits well in its plot and is approached over a gravelled driveway providing hard standing for several vehicles. There is also a single size garage with additional parking located at the end of the garden and accessed from Spring Lane. The gardens are established with a number of mature trees to the boundaries and a large expanse of southerly facing garden to the rear of the house.


Planning permission has been passed on the adjacent plot a 5 bedroom detached house and this land is also available for offers in excess of £300,000. Offers are invited for the Rectory on its own or alternatively offers will be considered for both parts as a whole.

The vendors are The Oxford Diocesan Board of Finance. Please note that the sale will be subject to the vendor's usual covenants and obligations. The purchaser will be required to obtain the consent of the post office and district council to rename the property and may not use rectory or vicarage within the new property name. Furthermore the sale will be subject to covenants preventing religious and political use or nuisance, disturbing divine worship and the plot may not be used for anything other than as a single private dwelling house with a general prohibition on further development. That said the vendors understand that a purchaser will probably want to refurbish and possibly extend the existing dwelling and will allow maximum flexibility in this regard.
