Description

Waterperry is a charming small village situated 9 miles to the East of Oxford, on the banks of the river Thame. The village is famed for Waterperry Gardens, based at the 17th century Waterperry House and has many attractive period properties. Local amenities including shops, public houses, post office and primary and secondary schools are available in Wheatley. A wider range of amenities and many well regarded private schools can be found within Oxford. The historic market town of Thame is 8 miles away.

Manor Farmhouse dates back to the mid 1800’s, with the main stone built elevation having 12 pane sash windows and a six panel door beneath a stone canopy. There are two separate wings to the rear of the property, the larger of which has been extended to create a separate two bedroom cottage. This part of the property is in good order and provides a rental income but could easily be re-incorporated within the main house. It currently has a courtyard with parking and a separate area of garden.

The farmhouse itself is currently arranged as two apartments (the summary of accommodation does not reflect this). It is in need of significant updating, but there is the opportunity to live in the attached cottage whilst the work is undertaken.

The property is approached over a shared driveway, which leads to a private driveway, the parking and the stable block and paddock beyond. The rear of the farmhouse is accessed via a covered pedestrian gateway set within a low stone wall. To the front are mature and private gardens, which loop around to the stable block to one side (currently a pottery studio) and the paddock. In all about 0.75 acres.
