Rare opportunity in rural position.
About 13.74 acres (5.56 hectares).
The barn at Upper Whitley represents a rare opportunity to build a modern home in a delightfully rural yet accessible location.
Planning has been granted for a spacious four bedroom house, see planning permission reference CP15/V2009/PAR – Vale of White Horse District Council. The proposed dwelling extends to just over 3,723 sq.ft. over two floors and comprises a sympathetic build with extensive glazing to take advantage of the views, a natural slate roof and timber cladding that will fade to a natural finish over time.
The property has a number of further traditional and more modern farm buildings, including a brick traditional farm building adjacent to the proposed conversion. The more modern buildings provide an extensive footprint of stabling and livestock buildings.
To the front of the property is a useful paddock which runs away from the
proposed house and provides views over Farmoor Reservoir, well known for
its sailing, fishing and birdlife. A further feature of the property is Whitley
Brake, a delightful covert which has a variety of deciduous trees in particular
a mature stand of Ash as well as a rookery and an abundance of wildlife.
About 100.21 acres (40.56 hectares)
Lot 2 comprises an attractive block of permanent pasture and a deciduous
woodland known locally as Fox Covert.
According to the Soil Survey of England and Wales the soils are of the Denchworth series consisting of a clayey soil with similar fine loamy over clayey soils and some slowly permeable calcareous clayey soils. The land is classified as Grade 3 in the main with some Grade 4.
