Property description

SITUATION & LOCATION
Blewbury is a beautiful and popular village at the foot of the Berkshire Downs and The Ridgeway, Britain’s oldest road. It is three miles south of Didcot where there is a mainline railway station connecting to London Paddington in approximately 45 minutes. The village has a shop, garage, post office, church and two public houses, both of which have restaurants. There is also a sports ground, two playgrounds, tennis courts, bowling green and cricket ground with pavilion. On the east side of the village there is an iron age fort site, Blewburton, and there are many excellent walks in the locality. Road communications are also excellent with the nearby A34 connecting northbound to the M40 and southbound to the M4. Schooling in the area is also very good with the nearby town of Abingdon having the Manor Preparatory School, Abingdon School for Boys and the school of St Helen and St Katharine's for Girls. The A34 provides access to the excellent Oxford schools including The Dragon, Magdalen, St Edwards, and Oxford High.

DESCRIPTION
Penny Chase was originally built in 1954 for the famous steeplechase jockey and author Dick Francis. The present owners purchased the property in 1995 and have remodelled, modernised, and extended the accommodation. A short gravel driveway leads off the road to a large, gravelled parking area with space for numerous vehicles. The property is finished in cream painted rendered elevations with tiled roofs and is currently arranged as three separate living spaces.

The main house provides five bedrooms (three ensuite), a 31-foot open plan reception room, well-fitted kitchen/breakfast room and also has the benefit of a 40-foot indoor heated swimming pool. In addition, there is a separate apartment which provides two bedrooms, an open plan living/kitchen/dining room and has its own area of garden with picket fencing and decking. The apartment has indoor access to the pool and to the main house.

There is a separate annexe to the right-hand side of the property which provides three bedrooms (one ensuite) a sitting room and a family room which leads into a kitchen/breakfast room.

OUTSIDE
The property sits in a total plot of approximately 8.25 acres which is currently divided into a formal garden which sits to the rear of the residential accommodation with the remainder of the land situated to the north and is currently laid out as four paddocks with two field shelters. There are also two loose boxes adjoining the rear of the buildings. There is also easy access to Blewbury Riding Centre from the property through a gate at the end of the garden.
