The small and select village of Overthorpe lies on the outskirts of Banbury, situated on the hillside overlooking the Cherwell Valley. Overthorpe lies south west of the larger settlement of Middleton Cheney, on a minor road off the A422. The conservation area of the village covers the historic part of Overthorpe with buildings arranged irregularly along one street linked by stone walls and hedges. More comprehensive facilities can be found in nearby Banbury, to include the Castle Quay Shopping Centre, Gateway Retail Park and the Spiceball Leisure Centre. There is also a mainline railway station in Banbury with services to London Marylebone in under an hour as well as the M40 which provides access to both London and Birmingham via Jct 11.
The garden is situated to the rear of the property and access from the conservatory leads to a pathway and patio area with steps up to the main garden, which is predominately lawned and has deep filled perennial flower and shrub borders. The gardens offer an array of colour throughout the seasons and there are also established trees and a garden store. The garden has a good degree of privacy with established gardens surrounding.
