Milcombe is a small yet thriving village located just south of the market town of Banbury. Facilities in the village include The Horse & Groom public house, Parish church, village hall and local store, as well as a number of clubs and groups. The neighbouring village of Bloxham offers further shops, public houses/ restaurants as well as primary, secondary and sixth form schools, post office, doctors surgery and a regular bus service. Soho Farmhouse is located about 7 miles away. Nearby independent schools include Bloxham, Tudor Hall, Sibford and Carrdus.
Farnell Fields was originally a row of three cottages set on the edge of the village in a quiet location backing onto fields on three sides. The property is Grade II Listed dating from the 17th century and has been sympathetically updated over recent years with quality materials to create an appealing home. The house retains much of its original charm and features including solid oak/elm floor boards, inglenook fireplaces and exposed beams. Quality bathrooms have also been fitted in recent years. There is a store attached to the house with potential for alternative uses (for example home office) subject to the necessary consents.
A useful utility/boot room with fitted cupboards leads through to the kitchen/breakfast room with oil-fired Aga set in an inglenook with bread oven to one side. From here stairs rise to bedroom 1. A door from the kitchen/breakfast room leads to the dining room with cloakroom off and stairs to bedroom 2. From the dining room there is access to the study and sitting room and stairs rise from the sitting room to the master bedroom suite. A further staircase leads to the second floor where there are two additional bedrooms. The majority of rooms are dual aspect overlooking the front and rear gardens.
Grounds and garden
There is ample off-road parking adjacent to the double garage. From here a pathway leads to the south-facing front garden with entertaining terrace, lawn and stream bounded by a stone wall and views over adjacent fields. The rear garden can be accessed from either side of the house and comprises a larger area of lawn, covered seating area, herbaceous borders and mature trees.
