GENERAL AND SITUATION
A wonderful opportunity to acquire a superb property with first rate equestrian facilities, a beautiful character home and two flats, all situated in a very sought after location. In the agent's opinion the property would suit most equestrian disciplines. There is outriding along country roads and the nearest bridleway is approximately 100 yards away. The area is well serviced for those with an equestrian interest. The property falls within the Old Berks Country. Although the property is tucked away in a lovely rural location the village of Childrey has a local pub, garage and local school. The town of Wantage is approximately 5 miles distant where you will find a wide range of retail outlets, health services, schooling, banking facilities, along with leisure and recreational venues. Didcot Parkway is approximately 11 miles with a mainline train station into Paddington. The larger administrative centres of Oxford and Swindon are within easy reach. In the agent's opinion properties of this type, in this area, very rarely come to the market and an early onsite inspection is highly recommended to fully appreciate and avoid disappointment.
From Wantage take the B450. At the Childrey Dip turn right towards Childrey. Continue through Childrey, remaining on the B4001, the property will be found on your right hand side after approximately one mile.
