Property description

An individual and architect designed six bedroom brick built property, offering over 3,600 sq ft of accommodation arranged over three floors, with a triple garage on a generous plot. Spacious and extraordinarily light, this property has something for every generation and is a fantastic family home.

The Fairlawns is an impressive family home approached via a gated entrance, the driveway is block paved with lawn to both sides, offering parking for a large number of vehicles.

There is a large kitchen/breakfast room to the front which enjoys views over not just the long driveway, but the open farmland beyond. A study and open plan sitting room and family room that takes in views of the extensive rear gardens, feel light and spacious and are complemented by a double sided wood-burner, vaulted ceilings and a floor to ceiling window.

The dining area with double doors is also open plan to the main living areas and lends itself to well to large family gatherings, an over-sized Christmas tree in this room would be a talking point for all! A useful utility room and cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation.

To the first floor the master bedroom with en suite and fitted wardrobes is a wow with it's double aspect, enjoying views over the gardens at the rear and also far reaching views over farmland to the front. Three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom are on this floor.

A galleried landing with vaulted ceiling floods the house with natural light, taking you to the third floor. Two large double bedrooms and a shower room offer the flexibility for teenagers to have their own space, or guests alike. Careful thought was given to the layout on this floor, with multi generational living in mind.

To the outside the garden is mainly laid to lawn, with a variety of mature fruit trees and shrubs, a large patio is perfect for alfresco dining and enjoying sun late in to the evening. There is plenty of room to kick a football, gather with family and friends and still space for the keen Gardner to grow vegetables and have a greenhouse.

There is a triple sized garage, perfect for those that have luxury or vintage vehicles. Solar panels are fitted on the garage which provide the vendors with enough electricity to cover not only their needs, but also to supply an annual income.

Blackthorn is situated close to the Oxfordshire/Buckinghamshire borders, offers an impressive selection of properties, many of which are period houses, barn conversions and cottages. The village social committee organises various events at the village hall throughout the year including Quiz nights, summer bbq, Christmas Carols and other ad-hoc fun-gatherings for the community.

Blackthorn is approximately 3 miles from Bicester and the designer retail outlet at Bicester village. Aylesbury, Thame and Oxford are also within easy reach for a comprehensive range of shopping, recreational and cultural facilities.

By road, the property is convenient for the M40, A41, A43 (leading to the M1) and A34. Bicester has two railway stations.
