Through a wooden gate and over a gravel driveway lies this handsome family home. Set in an elevated position with superb views across the surrounding countryside, Park Farm House is believed to date back some 250 years with a later Victorian addition. A substantially built house, typical of the period, Park Farm House has a warm and inviting feel, with generously proportioned rooms – ideally suited for a family and those who enjoy entertaining. There are a number of attractive features including the recently fitted and beautifully crafted, traditional sash windows which fill the house with light and frame the stunning elevated views beyond. Another highlight are the attractive fireplaces throughout with a contrast between ornate fireplaces and an inglenook fireplace with log burning stove in the sitting room. The sitting room is in the older part of the house and has a cosy feel, complete with rustic exposed beams and a window seat. There is a choice of well proportioned reception rooms and the four bedroom, three bathroom layout makes for comfortable family living. At its heart, Park Farm House is an exceptional village house, with a well-appointed kitchen, useful conservatory/boot room with Belfast sink and a large separate laundry room.
Outside, there is a large, raised terrace which enjoys views over the garden and is perfect for those who enjoy outside dining and entertaining. Steps lead down to the lawn which is framed by a redbrick wall and well stocked flower beds. A gate opens through to a further garden with orchard, greenhouse and potting shed.
Situated in picturesque, Oxfordshire countryside are The Sibfords – the collective name given to the villages of Sibford Gower, Sibford Ferris and the hamlet of Burdrop. The three are contiguous and sit on either side of the Sib Valley with thriving communities supporting a shop with post office, village hall, church, popular village pub, doctors surgery and two schools; The Sibford Gower Endowed Primary School and Sibford school. Bloxham School and Tudor Hall, both popular independent schools are also within striking distance as well as The Warriner School, a co-educational comprehensive. Surrounded by rolling countryside, The Sibfords are an idyllic spot for lovers of the outdoors with inexhaustible walks.
If that wasn’t enough, another attraction is the proximity to Soho Farmhouse which is a short drive away, merely adding to the appeal of this superb area.
Eight miles to the south and perched on the highest point in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds is the market town of Chipping Norton. Renowned for its antique shops and diverse shopping, including a regular market – Chipping Norton retains a robust living, working market town atmosphere. There is a good choice of places to eat, a number of supermarkets and top quality entertainment at the wonderful Theatre, famous for its pantomime and visiting performers.
The Sibfords are equidistant between the popular towns of Shipston-on-Stour and Banbury both of which have a variety of shops, an array of dining options and pubs.
With the town of Banbury within striking distance, The Sibfords are well-connected to fast rail-links to both London and Birmingham and is well positioned for the M40.
