A gateway to a real rural idyll
A rural setting, a roaring open fire and food slow-cooked in an Aga — an idyllic scenario for those hankering after a taste of the the country life.
And all this possible with two family homes in village locations available to let now.
Heath Farm House, pictured top, near Milton-under-Wychwood lies in a favoured edge of village situation, with beautiful views over the Evenlode Valley.
Believed to have been built in the late 19th century, the former farmhouse is well laid out with accommodation over two floors.
The kitchen has recently been fitted with bespoke units as well as the Aga and there is a separate laundry room.
The gardens, of approximately one third of an acre, lie mainly on the eastern and southern sides and are principally laid to lawn.
There is a paved terrace and plenty of parking space.
Bishops Farm House, pictured above, in Drayton is part Elizabethan, part Georgian and retains many period features, although has been sympathetically modernised.
The accommodation consists of a drawing room, sitting room, breakfast/kitchen, study and dining room while there are five bedrooms.
It has a large garden, orchard and barn which could be used as a home office while there are three garages and a drive with a parking area.
Located just three miles from Abingdon, it is convenient for the A34, the European School and Didcot Parkway train station.
Heath Farm House is available to let at £2,750 a month, while Bishops Farm is available at £2,900 a month.
