A beautifully presented detached house set on a generous plot of around 0.8 of an acre. The house was built in the late 90's to an exacting standard and offers fabulous family friendly accommodation on a generous scale.

New House is a beautifully presented family home providing about 4000 sq. ft. (excluding garage) of well laid out and practical accommodation. The ground floor provides a welcoming entrance hall with wooden flooring and part-galleried ceiling from which all the main reception rooms are accessible. There is a fabulous family kitchen which has been refitted in recent times and enjoys an aspect over the rear garden. There are three further reception rooms on the ground floor in addition to a 28ft conservatory, utility room and cloakroom. The sitting room has a fireplace and wooden flooring with a double aspect and the other reception rooms also benefit from either tiled or timber flooring. The conservatory provides an extremely useful addition reception room providing a further link between the sitting room and playroom/dining room, both of which have French doors leading from the conservatory.
The first floor provides equally impressive accommodation with a large principal bedroom suite with stylishly refitted ensuite and walk-in dressing room. There is a guest bedroom suite with a further stylishly fitted ensuite and dressing area together with three other double bedrooms with a further refitted family bathroom.
There is a double integral garage with plentiful block paved driveway and car hard standing for several cars.

New House sits in approximately 0.85 acre gardens. These are beautifully maintained with more formal gardens surrounding the house which are mainly laid to lawn with mature planted borders, trees, and hedging. A further area of garden is located to the rear and backs onto farmland. This garden is currently lawned and is separated from the main garden by hedging and a gate but could easily be incorporated to enlarge the size of the rear garden. The house enjoys a southerly aspect to the rear and there is an extensive paved terrace adjacent to the house which enjoys a high degree of privacy.

New House is situated in an excellent position on the outskirts of the village of Sutton Courtenay with views to the rear over farmland. Sutton Courtenay is a highly regarded village located midway between the market towns of Abingdon and Didcot. The location provides excellent access to many day-to-day amenities with supermarkets being available in both Abingdon and Didcot, the greater range of shopping, dining, and theatres and museums available in Oxford which can be reached either by train or by road. The nearby Didcot Parkway rail station provides mainline access to London Paddington in approximately 45 minutes and also provides a commuter line to Oxford. The nearby A34 connects northbound to the M40 and southbound to the M4. There is an excellent range of schools in the local area, with the nearby town of Abingdon providing private schooling to cater for all ages including The Manor Preparatory School, Abingdon School, and the school of St Helen and St Katharine.
There are many delightful walks around the village and along the River Thames which runs along its northern outskirts. The Hanson path has recently been upgraded and provides a very pleasant walk into Abingdon town centre.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
