New Barn Farmhouse is a 2 storey detached period dwelling sited to the northerly section of the farm and adjacent to a collection of both modern and tr aditional farm buildings.
Albeit in need of refurbishment and modernisation it benefits from a very secluded location with southerly views over farmland. Of brick construction under a slate roof it was formerly two Victorian cottages before amalgamation. The ground floor accommodation comprises entrance hall, sitting room, dining room, fitted kitchen with pantry, rear hallway and toilet. To the first floor there are 3 double bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The garden lies to the immediate exterior and provides a south easterly facing aspect.
Farmyard and Buildings
Located east or south of the farmhouse the buildings provide both modern and traditional accommodation in varying degrees of repair. The more modern structures are to the south and comprise an open sided steel portal framed building measuring in excess of 2,600 sq.ft and used for agricultural storage. There is also a smaller livestock building of about 1,500 sq.ft with block walls, concrete floor and yorkshire board cladding.
A traditional L shaped brick and wooden framed and clad building lies immediately east of the house. Providing stabling and storage and extending to about 1,500 sq.ft. Whilst fit for its existing purpose the building provides scope for renovation for a variety of uses including home office, annex or other accommodation ancillary to the main dwelling (subject to planning). A small selection of non-standard constructed buildings are also located in an adjacent paddock.
An off lying portal framed barn of about 5,000 sq.ft is located more centrally within a wooded parcel of the farm called new Barn Covert. Purchasers should note that permitted development has been gained via application 15/00391/AGRIC for an extension to the existing agricultural building of some 5,000 sq.ft.

large enclosures alongside woodland parcels and some permanent pasture the property extends to about 343 acres in all. The arable land accounts for 246 acres with about 66 acres being mature, broadleaf woodland mainly located to the south of the f arm near the village. Pasture and paddocks extend to about 3 acres with a further 26 being
tracks, yard and ancilliary areas.
A canter track is located to the centre of the farm making use of a hill rising from Wantage Road heading west to a ring at the top of the hill. Constructed historically the track and ring have previously formed part of a training establishment although are now in need of some modernisation.
Providing an attractive outlook from its elevated position the land is well linked by a series of tracks leading from the Wantage Road past the farmstead and up to the Jockey Club Estates gallops to the west. A full schedule is a vailable on request.
