The Stablings is located in the small hamlet of Swalcliffe Lea, amidst stunning rolling countryside. The market town of Banbury is about 5 miles to the east and offers an excellent
range of shopping and leisure facilities. There are train services to London (Marylebone
around 55 mins). The nearby villages of Sibford Ferris and Sibford Gower, provide further
amenities including a village shop and publichouse. Swalcliffe lies within the catchment area for the Warriner Secondary School at Bloxham. Local schools include Primary at Sibford Gower, a preparatory school St. John's Priory (Banbury), The Croft (Stratford) and private schools at Sibford (mixed co-ed), Bloxham (co-ed) and Tudor Hall (girls).
The Stablings is a charming home, in a small courtyard setting of five other properties. It was converted in 1987. The current owner has greatly improved, extended and updated the property to provide light and comfortable living accommodation, which is ideal as a weekend retreat, a first time rural purchase or perhaps a downsize.
The kitchen/breakfast room has a slate floor and bespoke wooden units, exposed stone walls
and window seat. A doorway opens to a split level dining area leading to a fabulous sitting/garden room with vaulted ceiling, with doors to the garden. On the first floor the master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom, with countryside views. There are two further bedrooms and a family shower room.
The garden is to the front of the property, comprising a small lawned area with established
planting, and an adjacent gravelled parking area.
