The property is approached down a shared tree lined driveway and is one of four beautifully converted historic brick buildings dating back to the beginning of the 20th Century. This conversion was undertaken by Rectory Homes and, with considerable additions to the specification by the current owner, this stunning property now presents as a unique and stylish family home built to the highest specification with the latest building and insulation technology. On the ground floor there is a most impressive vaulted open plan kitchen/dining and living space with a feature Meijifocus wood burning stove and bi-folding doors leading out onto a courtyard. A fabulous glass link walkway joins this part of the house to the entrance hall, family room, drawing room, as well as a double bedroom and the principal bedroom suite on the ground floor. Stairs lead up to first floor level where there are three further bedrooms, one with en suite shower room, and a family bathroom.

Saxon Barn lies in a quiet location near to the village of Shillingford and just to the north of the market town of Wallingford. The property enjoys wonderful views over the surrounding farmland and open countryside and the esteemed Brightwell Vineyard is just across the road, a short distance away. Wallingford itself lies on the banks of the River Thames and is well served with an excellent range of day-to-day facilities from banks, pubs, restaurants and shops as well as a large Waitrose supermarket. The town has an active community with a huge array of recreational pursuits from rowing to theatre. Wallingford has good transport links to the larger centres of Oxford and Henley and there are fast rail services from Didcot and Reading into London Paddington. The area is well served with first-rate schooling, both state and independent, and lies in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with exceptional walking and riding.

From the shared driveway electric gates open onto a paved courtyard which provides secure parking and access to the triple car port. From here the property can be entered via a stunning glass walkway where a secluded walled garden planted with lavender creates a beautiful backdrop. The main entrance to the house is accessed separately with double five bar gates opening onto a sweeping, gravel driveway with central planting and parking for a number of cars. Beyond this another five bar gate leads through to the attractive rear garden which boasts an array of specimen trees and views over the paddock beyond.
