DESCRIPTION A handsome Georgian farmhouse believed to date back to c.1750, located along a quiet no-through lane in a small village setting. The property is Grade II Listed with character accommodation arranged over three floors, set in grounds of 0.36 acre (0.14ha) with formal gardens, an orchard, and 32ft swimming pool. Numerous period features remain such as inglenook fireplaces, stone floors, attractive fenestration and exposed beams. The property is very well presented with an entrance lobby and reception hall, formal drawing room with French doors leading to a secluded seating area, cosy sitting room that opens into a large, light and sociable kitchen, with cast iron range and french doors opening onto kitchen garden, dining/family room with a utility and separate wet room serving the swimming pool. To the first floor is an en suite bedroom, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom. On the second floor are two more bedrooms and a shower room. The property is approached through wooden gates onto a gravel driveway and a central path walks through the lawned established orchard to the front door. Gated side access leads to a storage garage and across the rear of the house is a wide patio terrace and south facing lawned gardens beyond. The swimming pool is heated and the entire garden is enclosed by fencing with a range of mature trees.

SITUATION The small village of Fencott is located on the northern edge of Otmoor, an historic area of moorland and part of a RSPB Wetlands Nature Reserve. There is an excellent primary school in the village of Charlton-on-Otmoor (about 1 mile) and the picturesque, thatched Nut Tree Inn at Murcott (about 1 mile) which is a renowned Michelin starred restaurant/public house. There is excellent access to the A34/M40. Train services locally to Oxford and Bicester and to London (Paddington or Marylebone in under an hour) all from Islip or Oxford Parkway Station. Nearby Islip village also has a community shop and doctors' surgery.

DIRECTIONS From Oxford take the A34 in a northerly direction towards the M40, taking the first exit slip road about 3 miles north of the city, signposted Islip and Bletchingdon. At the T-junction turn left and continue into the centre of Islip and turn left opposite the Red Lion public house into Middle Street (signposted Charlton-on-Otmoor and Merton). Continue for about 3 miles before taking the third turning on the right (signposted Charlton-on-Otmoor, Fencott and Murcott). Continue through Charlton-on-Otmoor , passing the village school on your left and continue into Fencott. As the road bears sharply right, continue straight ahead into Black Bull Lane. The property will be found on the right hand side.
