Helmdon is a popular community village lying on the South Northamptonshire/North Oxfordshire borders. Amenities in the village include a highly regarded primary school, 13th century church, public house, as well as many social and sporting clubs and popular annual events. These have all contributed to it being winner of the ‘Northamptonshire Best Village competition 2016’ (also won in 2011 and 2014). More extensive amenities can be found in the nearby market towns of Brackley, Banbury and Towcester. Local schools include Magdalen College, Winchester House, Stowe School, Akeley Wood and Carrdus Preparatory School. Mainline train services to London in under an hour can be found at Milton Keynes (Euston), Bicester and Banbury (Marylebone). The A43 dual carriageway gives access to the M40 and M1 motorways.
Barnstones was constructed in the late 1980’s, and has been in the same family ownership. It provides spacious well proportioned living accommodation, with enclosed gardens and an adjacent paddock. It would now benefit from some updating, but provides a fantastic opportunity to create a very special home.
Barnstones is a sizeable detached property in a slightly elevated edge of village position.
On the ground floor the large entrance hall leads to the kitchen/breakfast room with adjacent utility room (giving access to the garage). The sitting room has a feature stone fireplace, and views to the front. The drawing room has a large bay window, and open fireplace. The adjacent conservatory opens to the garden. The rear lobby gives access to an office/study. Completing the ground floor is a dining room.
On the first floor the master bedroom is dual aspect, with an ensuite bathroom. There are three further bedrooms (one with ensuite) and a family bathroom. The second floor has two bedrooms and a storage room that has the potential to be turned into an ensuite bathroom.
Gardens and Gardens
The gardens are a real feature of the property, and are fully enclosed, with mature planting and a large lawn area. A wide terrace provides plenty of space to relax and entertain. A vegetable garden, with greenhouse, separates the gardens from the paddock, which has access provided via the adjacent track to the side of the house.
To the front of the house a large driveway provides plenty of off street parking, and to the rear there is a double garage with a store room above, that could easily be used as a home office.
