Bloxham is a popular, well-served north Oxfordshire village with an excellent community, situated between the market towns of
Banbury and Chipping Norton in attractive undulating countryside. The village has a mini supermarket, garage (with shop), hairdressers, chemist, Post Office, doctors’ surgery,
dentists, vets and there are three public houses. There are local nursery, primary and secondary schools (The Warriner) with Tudor Hall and Bloxham School closeby. Connection to the M40
Motorway at Junction 11 Banbury is about 5 miles away and a good fast train service from Banbury to London Marylebone (from 54 minutes).
Pophleys is a detached village house thought to date from the 1880s with many period features and a private walled garden. The current owners have undertaken extensive improvements
including rewiring, updating the kitchen, replacement period windows and adding a downstairs cloakroom. Attractive features include bay windows to the front and arched
windows to one side elevation.
From the flagstone hallway are two well-proportioned reception rooms, which are light, with good ceiling heights, with original
working shutters . The sitting room has a working fireplace with a Victorian marble surround. Also, from the hallway there is access to the cellar, burglar alarm and storage. To the rear is a new sunny Amdega conservatory with Fired
Earth limestone flooring with underfloor heating and access to the garden. The kitchen also has limestone flooring and a good range of kitchen cupboards, a Belfast sink, a gas Rayburn range and a Neff gas hob/electric cooker. A cloakroom / utility has been added. On the first floor there are two light double bedrooms and a single bedroom/study (all doubled glazed). To the rear is a further bedroom and a family bathroom.
The private walled lawn garden has herbaceous and flower borders. Behind iron parkland fencing, a gate opens to a graveled parking area for three cars. To the rear part of the garden is a single storey brick outbuilding with great potential.
There is the opportunity for further development to the property which could include converting the attic, tanking the cellar and converting / upgrading the rear outbuilding into a home-office or annexe subject to the necessary planning consents. The kitchen and dining room could be opened up into an open large room
