The pretty village of Aynho is situated south east of Banbury on the B4100 in the South Northamptonshire countryside. The village is made up predominantly of period stone properties together with a limited number of more recent homes. There is a good community spirit and Aynho offers The Cartwright Hotel, the Church of St Michael and a village hall. It is conveniently situated for access to the towns of Banbury and Bicester, both of which offer a comprehensive range of facilities with primary and secondary schooling found in neighbouring villages. Access to the M40 motorway can be gained at junction 10 (Ardley), There is also an excellent mainline train service (London Marylebone & Birmingham) from both Banbury & Bicester.
Off the kitchen, stone steps lead to a private terrace which is enclosed by dry stone walling and the outbuilding. The garden is filled with shrubs and bushes, well stocked borders and a wildlife pond towards the far end. The majority of the garden is laid to lawn and extends to approx 54ft in length. The garden is surrounded by attractive stone walling plus there is a stone outbuilding with services, currently housing the freezer, washing machine and water meter. There is also an attached stone garden store.
