This versatile smallholding amounting to approximately 8.8acres (3.5ha) has a number of potential uses having areas of attractive woodland, pasture and useful range of outbuildings. Some of the woodland is used for camping at present but areas could also be cleared to provide further grassland. There is river frontage along the northern boundary to the Shill Brook which is a tributary to the Thames. Communications are excellent with the A420 3 miles south leading to Oxford and the Midlands to the north and Swindon and the M4 to the south. Witney and the M40 are about 5 miles north west.
A charming Scandanavian style timber chalet providing spacious accommodation, including 3 bedrooms, 1 with en suite, kitchen/dining room, sitting room and family bathroom.
This would also make an ideal project for re-development with a large dwelling of traditional construction (subject to planning consent).
The total area amounts to approximately 8.8 acres (3.5ha) of which roughly 2.75 acres (1.1ha) is grassland and 4 acres (1.6ha) is semi-mature woodland. The trees are mainly deciduous and are interspersed with attractive grass areas which are used for temporary camping at present. The existing Yurts and log cabins in the woods are not included in the sale but could be available by separate negotiation if required. The remaining area of approximately 2.05 acres (0.8ha) is occupied by the house and garden and the farm buildings.
There are several attractive lakes and ponds around the land which are stocked with coarse fish. There is also full river frontage along the northern boundary to the Shill Brook which is a tributary to the Thames which lies about 2 miles down stream.
