A deceptively spacious former farmhouse, located in a prime village location with views across farmland to the rear. The property, which dates back to c. 1750 and is constructed of local ironstone beneath a tiled roof, has recently been sympathetically renovated and extended, to create a delightful and substantial family home. The property now provides a stylish balance between original period features and contemporary living, with open fireplaces, flagstone floors and exposed ceiling timbers sitting alongside high quality modern additions, such as oak flooring, underfloor heating, wi-fi network, central vacuum and heat recovery systems and home automation.

The kitchen/family room forms the hub of the house with a range of base and eye level fitted units including a central island, granite work surfaces, slate floor and an electric Aga (with separate attached companion oven and hob). One wall of the kitchen area is fully-glazed, affording wonderful views of the garden and farmland beyond. Woodburning stoves feature in the family room and dining room, a room which also features an original flagstone floor and double doors which open on to the rear garden. The study, which is privately situated, has slate flooring, and could be combined with the back hall and the bedroom above it, to provide separate "annexe" style accommodation. Upstairs, there are five generously proportioned and attractive bedrooms. The dual aspect master bedroom features a dressing room and en-suite shower room. There are two further en-suite facilities. All rooms are fitted with attractive oak-boarded doors.

Situation

Shenington is situated 5 miles to the west of Banbury, on the edge of the Cotswold escarpment. The village is dominated by a beautiful green surrounded by dark golden Hornton stone houses. Within the village there is an excellent primary school, a 12th Century Church and The Bell, a charming country pub, and an extensive range of walks, footpaths and bridleways are on your doorstep. A more comprehensive range of facilities can be found 10 minutes away in the nearby market town of Banbury, which also provides excellent train links (including London Marylebone in an hour and Oxford in 20 minutes)) as well as access to the M40 motorway (via Jct 11).

Outside

The property is set behind stone walled boundaries with a tarmacadam driveway providing parking for several vehicles and access to a detached double garage with electric up and over doors. There is a pretty and secluded courtyard garden and a rear garden which is principally laid to lawn and complemented by well stocked flowering borders. There is a separate vegetable patch accessed via a wooden gate with raised beds and gravel pathways. The garden enjoys glorious views across hilly countryside beyond and has a gated pedestrian access (via the neighbouring property) for oil delivery.
