A superb family home in the heart of a popular village
Located in the heart of the picturesque Oxfordshire village of Standlake lies this attractive family home. Horcutt Farmhouse has a warm and inviting feel, with generously proportioned rooms - ideally suited for a family and those who enjoy entertaining. The house is bursting with charm with a number of features including original flagstones, parquet and tiled floors, attractive fireplaces and large windows which allow not only for an abundance of natural light but in turn, views of the garden on one side, and the pretty High Street to the other. There is a choice of well-proportioned, versatile reception rooms and the four bedroom, two bathroom layout makes for comfortable family living. The well-appointed kitchen is very much the heart of the home and has an AGA and a number of wall and floor units with ample space for a table to the centre.
Outside, there is a terrace that is perfect for those who enjoy outside dining, overlooking the garden. The garden is simply beautiful, and has been designed, constructed and maintained by the current owners to a standard which is second to none. It is mostly laid to lawn and interspersed with a variety of well stocked beds which are full of colour and cleverly planted to provide colour throughout much of the year.
To the front of the house is an enclosed garden with gravel path leading to the front door. Much like the garden to the rear, this garden is simply beautiful and includes roses which sit behind an ornate metal fence. There is a useful garage as well as a driveway providing parking.
Situated in attractive, Oxfordshire countryside, Standlake has a charming rural feel, with a wonderful sense of community supporting a village pub - The Black Horse - a Church of England Primary School, Post Office and Stores and numerous other small businesses.
There is a recreation ground on Rack End which is the home of the Lower Windrush Tennis Club, with three hard courts, Village Hall and children's playground.
For those who are keen on sport, there are facilities including numerous lakes, many of which are well stocked with fish and popular amongst anglers; with others being used for aquatic sports such as windsurfing. Oxford Downs Cricket Club have a ground in Standlake and are members of the Cherwell Cricket League.
If that wasn’t enough, there are a number of societies, clubs and organisations based in the village which include a Youth Club and a Garden Club to name just two.
Witney and Oxford are only a short drive away and the village is well positioned for the M40 and A34 providing easy access to London and Birmingham. For those needing the train, Oxford and Didcot Parkway have mainline rail services to London.
The area has an excellent choice of both state and private schools in Oxford, Witney and Abingdon with a number having school buses going through the village.
