A truly exceptional four double bedroomed family home, in a picturesque village location, vastly improved over the years to create a superior family home with large gardens and numerous features as follows.


"We fell in love with Shenna House 16 years ago and have been incredibly happy living here. If we could pick it up and move it, we would. The kitchen in particular has been the hub of the house, the island has been our place for homework, for laughing with friends, for long cups of tea and more. The location in this friendly village with great schools nearby has been perfect for family and working life, with excellent access to road networks, stations and airports, yet beautiful countryside literally a few steps outside the front door. We are retiring now and relocating for family reasons, it is going to be hard to find a house as beautiful and versatile as Shenna House."

Hortons are delighted to offer Shenna House to the market, one of two, architecturally designed Cotswold stone constructions, set on the outskirts of the ever popular (and incredibly convenient) village of Farthinghoe. A small pretty village, with an amazing sense of community, located between the two bustling market towns of Brackley & Banbury, this village offers everything for quiet village life, and practical family life.

This house oozes classic styling, being tastefully designed throughout and enjoying superb natural lighting through all of the very well proportioned rooms. The layout is very well designed, catering for modern family requirements well, the accommodation comprises of a large entrance hallway, cloakroom, study/studio, open plan kitchen dining room, utility room, vast garden room extension, sizeable sitting room with log burning stove, four double bedrooms including one of the most impressive second bedrooms we've had the joy of selling, two ensuite shower rooms, family bathroom, double garage, large garden, views, and spacious gravelled driveway.

Whilst the house was originally built to a superior standard by local builders of high repute, the current owners have made their own improvements over the last twelve years; "We have replaced all the doors and windows with high quality double glazed, added a garden room extension, replaced all internal doors including 2 x hand made oak bifolds in the garden room, refurbished bathrooms and cloakroom, refurbished the utility room, and refreshed the kitchen including replacing the range cooker (included in sale)"

I cannot stress enough the importance of coming to view this house in person, as whilst it looks impressive in the photos and video marketing, the house absolutely lives up to expectations, and more. This doesn't finish in the house either, the gardens to the front and rear are beautifully landscaped and maintained. The rear garden especially, having had a considered approach to its layout, making the most of the sun throughout the day and having various terraces in three of the four corners.

The garden room is a superb addition to the home, and one of my favourite rooms in any house we have sold, enjoyable on the rainy days just as much as the sunny. The bedrooms are all double bedrooms, with bedrooms one and two being particularly spacious, having ample space and large shower ensuites. Included in the upgrades as mentioned before is the family bathroom, the separate shower cubicle and bathtub being again, ideal for families.

The property is approached from the road via a wooden gate, onto large gravelled driveway, that sits in front of a proper double garage. The garage having up and over doors, personnel door to the garden, and having lighting and socket points.

Farthinghoe is a rural south Northamptonshire village close to the border of north Oxfordshire. The village has a primary school, The Fox public house/restaurant, Limes Farm Shop & Cafe a repair garage, and a parish church. More specialised requirements can be found at the nearby market towns of Brackley and Banbury.

Leisure activities in the area include golf at Middleton Cheney, Whittlebury Park, and Buckingham; horse racing at Towcester; theatre at Milton Keynes, Oxford, and Stratford- upon-Avon, and motor racing at Silverstone. There is good communication with intercity train services from Bicester North to London Marylebone and access to the M40 at either J10 for the south or J11 for the north.
