Barter’s Hill forms part of the Lower Court Estate and offers significant potential for conversion (subject to planning consent). Barter’s Hill is a charming farmstead positioned down a long driveway off Greenend Road. The buildings were originally a working dairy farm forming part of the wider estate, but are now used by the current tenant for farming purposes. The farmstead also contains two semi-detached cottages which both have two rooms on the ground floor and three rooms on the first floor. Although unoccupied, both cottages have been kept water tight and have working services, albeit these have not been utilised in recent years. .

To the west of the cottages is a large, E-shaped range of traditional farm buildings that were formerly the dairy and cattle accommodation. These buildings face south, across the Evenlode Valley and present a fantastic opportunity for conversion into a spectacular residential property, subject to necessary planning consent. In addition there is a single portal frame hay barn.

Surrounding the farm lies about 130 acres of arable land and grass leys gently falling south from the lane on the northern boundary towards the River Evenlode. The buildings and part of the land are subject to a Farm Business Tenancy until September 2020.
Further details are available from the vendors’ agent.

The Lower Court Estate sits on the north side of the Evenlode Valley, four miles south of Chipping Norton, in beautiful rolling North Oxfordshire countryside. The Estate lies south of Greenend, one of five “Ends”, which are hamlets that originally grew up around farmsteads surrounding Chadlington village.

Chadlington is a delightful Cotswolds village hosting a coffee shop, butchers, groceries store, sports club, primary school and public house. There are a wider range of amenities, including supermarkets and a secondary school, at the nearby town of Chipping Norton. Chadlington is
within easy reach of the popular Soho Farmhouse and Daylesford Organic Farm, which offer sustainable organic produce in a beautiful setting.

The train station at Charlbury (4 miles away) serves Oxford in 18 minutes, as well as London Paddington in 1 hour and 16 minutes. The Chipping
Norton to Oxford Road (A44) is within 4.5 miles and provides easy access to Oxford and the M40.

At Oxford there are some renowned schools including the Dragon, Summerfields, The High School, St Edwards, Headington and Magdalen College School to name but a few. Radley, Tudor Hall, Bloxham, Cokethorpe and Kitebrook are also nearby.
