Looking for pastures new?
Anyone wanting to embrace rural life and all its advantages should take a look at a historic farmhouse that is new to the market.
The Cross House in Gagingwell ,near Chipping Norton, is a three-storey early 18th-century Grade II listed property overlooking farmland.
Originally two cottages, it comes with two garages and parking for up to six cars.
Inside there are a host of period features. For example, the dining room retains its original fireplace and there are exposed beams along with oak parquet flooring.
The sitting room includes a fireplace with a wood burner and an unusual porthole window while the kitchen has modern facilities such as a central island with breakfast bar, along with a range-style cooker.
There is also a conservatory with a flagstone floor and double doors opening on to a terrace.
On the first floor, there are two double bedrooms which both have exposed beams, while the bathroom has a shower and roll-top bath.
On the second floor, in both double bedrooms, the A-frame roof timbers are exposed and one of the bedrooms is en-suite.
The grounds include lawns and a sun terrace while behind the property is open pasture land. The Cross House is on the market for £750,000. For more information, or to arrange a viewing, contact agents Cridland & Co on 01869 343600 or visit cridlands.co.uk
