We are delighted to offer the rare opportunity to acquire a single building plot in the thriving and conveniently located Oxfordshire village of Southmoor.
The plot is a parcel of land left over from a development carried out by the highly respected retirement specialists, Blue Cedar Homes which was completed last year. The extent of the land is showed edged in red on the OS plan within these sales particulars, strictly for identification purposes only. It will enjoy direct vehicular access onto Bellamy Close, a publicly adopted highway.
The planning consent is for a detached 2 bedroom, 2 storey property the accommodation of which can be summarised as follows:
Ground Floor - open plan living room with dining area and kitchen, cloakroom, stairs to first floor landing, bedroom 1 with en-suite shower room, bedroom 2 and family bathroom.
Outside there will be a car parking drive suitable for 1 vehicle and front lawns. To the rear will be a private garden area.
The location of the plot may be seen during normal daylight hours without any specific appointment. It would be appreciated if you could let us know if you intend to visit and you walk the plot entirely at your own risk.
Southmoor is a popular village lying just south of the A420 between Oxford and Swindon, with a very good bus service between the two and giving easy access to the A34 and M4 and M40 motorways. Mainline railway services are available from Oxford (c. 10 miles) and Didcot Parkway (c. 13 miles) and airport buses run from the Oxford terminal.
Southmoor has a public house, the Waggon and Horses, and a village hall, and a small variety of shops. John Blandy VC Primary School teaches children from the ages of five to 12 and also has a nursery class. There is a thriving tennis club; cricket club; drama group; village newspaper and many other activities and events.
