5 Bedroom Barn Conversion For Sale
Souldern is also one of the few villages in the area served by high speed fibre-optic broadband, making working from home truly viable. Banbury, Brackley and Bicester are all within easy distance with a good range of shopping and leisure facilities, and there are shops in many of the nearby villages. Bicester also offers the unrivalled facility of Bicester Village as well as a 45-minute rail service to London Marylebone. The M40 motorway at junction 10 is about three miles away and access to both Northampton and Milton Keynes is also straightforward. There are many reasons to live here. But as much as any, its access to beautiful Oxfordshire countryside on the doorstep, community spirit and tranquillity make Souldern the sort of place that people rarely want to leave.
Foxhill Barn is the brain child of our ever so slightly eccentric, classic car nut client! The challenges that converting this barn presented scared off every other possible buyer - and even after purchasing it, anyone else would have given up when facing such insanities as quotes of over £200,000 just for bringing in mains water! But with determination bordering on obsession, the remains of the 18th century barn have been transformed into an uber-modern house with the most incredibly light West-facing open-plan living space with its West wall ALL glass. It has the air of a holiday home about it, with the high ceilings in the main living area accentuating the already large space still further. And then there's the outside. Unsurprisingly there's massive amounts of hard standing and shelter for cars behind double gates. Include this with the gardens and decking wrapping around the house and the overall plot is around an acre.
