A unique opportunity to purchase an individual home in a delightful semi-rural location with huge potential for extension and alteration, subject to the necessary consents. The property is one of a pair on the very edge of Northmoor, previously part of the Park Farm Estate, standing in a large plot of around 0.2 of an acre and set back from the road behind its long garden extending to all three sides of the property.  The property has previous planning history (now expired) for a two storey extension and the plans are available for inspection.  In our opinion the property has vast extension potential and offers a blank canvas to those seeking an opportunity to create a family-sized home with plot to match in a delightful setting surrounded by open farmland.  The property currently offers comfortable 3 Bedroom accommodation, oil fired central heating, ample off-road parking, a substantial workshop and is within walking distance of the River Thames via a network of footpaths.  The pretty rural hamlet of Northmoor boasts a community-owned pub, church, village hall whilst neighbouring Standlake has a primary school, pub, post office/village store.                    

SITUATION
Northmoor is a pretty and secluded semi-rural small village between the Rivers Thames and Windrush and close to the village of Standlake. Whilst being very much in the country it lies just 10 miles south-west of Oxford and some 7 miles south-east of the popular Market Town that is Witney. The village is set amongst fields (mostly given to raising cattle and sheep) in a part of the Upper Thames valley which has been designated an Environmentally Sensitive Conservation Area. Walkers and cyclists have many bridleways and footpaths. The village is on the Oxfordshire cycle path and public footpaths connect with the Thames path and Northmoor Lock. Northmoor also boasts a community run village pub, modern village hall, children's play area and parish church. Nearby Standlake (1 mile) has a post office/general store, two village pubs and a primary school while the popular village of Eynsham (6 miles) has excellent facilities, the highly-regarded Bartholomew Secondary School and regular daily bus services to Oxford. In Northmoor you get to enjoy an idyllic rural lifestyle without the isolation.

DIRECTIONS
The property is situated on the Standlake Road being the western edge of Northmoor. For Satnav follow OX29 5AZ. The pair of Cottages are set back from the road and West Cottage is on the right as you look from the road.
