5 Bedroom Detached House Under Offer
Lower Heyford is a delightful village. Nestling in a valley with the River Cherwell parallel to the Oxford canal, farmland surrounds the village and the local scenery is wonderful. There is a good local school, a lovely old pub, local store, and access to all points of the compass is exceptional with the M40 and A34 close by and the Cherwell Valley railway line Heyford station within the village. For those looking for a rural existence combined with nearby access to all amenities, there are few better villages in North Oxfordshire.
Cherwell house is a deliciously discreet, roomy and relaxed house extending to over 5,000 sq ft. From the moment the front gates open, and you meander down the driveway, your impression is that this house is designed for an easy, unflustered existence. Everything within the plot is cleverly constructed with purpose. The bedrooms are well proportioned. All the living spaces flow beautifully. Even the basement provides really significant recreation space ideally separate from the rest of the living space (eg the current drum practice room). And then there is the plot itself. Elevated well above the canal to the rear, upon which it has mooring rights over its 200 ft frontage, it enjoys a wonderful, peaceful view across the waterway and beyond over fields as the house sits on the edge of the village. But despite the seclusion it's still barely a five minute walk from a good pub plus a station that takes you to London, and a fifteen minute drive takes you to Bicester with all the amenities and accessibility that entails. Hence it is easy to see why the vendors have lived here for over 20 years. It is only a change of lifestyle approaching retirement that is promoting a move.
