One of only eight individual properties along The Ride, this attractive stone built four bedroom detached single storey dwelling is set on a generous plot approaching half an acre in an exclusive location with sylvan scenes to both the front and rear. Stunning backdrop with ample gardens, driveway parking, detached double garage and oil fired central heating combine to present a wonderful opportunity in an exquisite setting.
The property is constructed using traditional methods with mostly reconstituted stone elevations under a tiled roof. The front elevation has used traditional stone with stone mullion effect quoins and window surrounds and the double garage is of similar construction with natural timber cladding under a tiled roof. Internally the property has been maintained since the date of construction, however, a future owner would be likely to undertake a programme of updating. The kitchen, cloakroom and bathroom fittings are mostly original together with the timber double glazed windows. A uPVC double glazed conservatory has been added to the rear of the sitting room which is on the south facing side of the property. Externally the property is approached over a gravelled driveway providing parking for several vehicles with vehicle width access to one side and a large paved patio across the rear of the property. The bungalow and gardens sit within a plot of approximately 0.27 acres, the remainder of the 0.44 acres extends into a woodland area. It appears that each of the properties within The Ride own a parcel of the land which collectively form the woodland. Each parcel beyond the private gardens has no boundary treatment and there appears to be an unwritten common agreement that the neighbours can use the woodland as a whole. The plot size is large, but its shape brings all of the properties relatively close to each other, each enjoying their own long gardens.
The Ride is a cul de sac road which originally would have formed the old A338 leading to the A420 to Oxford. This was replaced some time prior to The Ride being constructed and has left a relatively quiet and secluded location surrounded by woodland. The closest village facilities would be found in Marcham, Appleton or Wootton approximately three to four miles away. Oxford is approximately 10 minutes by car and this is a relatively popular location for access to the City. It is semi-rural and enjoyment of the woodland is quite a rare feature. The regular bus services into Oxford, Swindon and Wantage on both the A420 and the A338 are an attraction as may be the proximity to Frilford Heath Golf club a few hundred yards along the A338.
School provision is excellent with a range of popular state and independent schools within striking distance, including: Abingdon Preparatory School, the preparatory schools of St Hugh's, Chandlings, The Manor and Cothill, and senior independent schools of Abingdon, St Helen & St Katherine, Cokethorpe and Radley plus the central Oxford schools.
Leave Wantage on the A338 and continue through East Hanney and Frilford. Take the first turning on the left just after Oxford Instruments and the property will be found on the left. Sat Nav Ref: OX13 5QF.
