7 Bedroom Detached House, Friars Lane, Lower Brailes, Banbury, Oxfordshire, OX15 5HU

Tenure Type: Freehold

Property Description

A Grade II Listed country residence with parts dating back to the 14th Century which has been sympathetically restored to a high standard. Located on the edge of Lower Brailes with a separate three bedroom coach house and views over countryside, sitting at the end of a no-through lane.

The property was home to William Bishop and the Bishop Family from 1535. The building remained faithful to its Catholic origins and continued to serve the community. In the early days of Queen Elizabeth I a secret mass centre was established to protect the Priests from persecution.

It dates from the 14th Century and through time, has been expanded in four phases offering modern living amongst its age and charm with privacy and space. Restored over a period of ten years the property now provides well-proportioned accommodation with a wealth of period features including open fireplaces, exposed timbers, sash windows, leaded lights, English elm and oak staircases. The more recent installations are of the highest quality fixtures and fittings including a bespoke handmade oak kitchen, bathroom and shower fittings. Incorporated features include oak panelling, English oak and elm floorboards, restored and new internal doors. The property has also undergone re-wiring and an overhaul of the plumbing and central heating system including wet under floor heating (except the Dining room which has retained original flagstone flooring), lime plastering and redecoration throughout.

The Coach House is a well-appointed three bedroom modern detached property with open plan Kitchen/Living room enjoying views through a

glazed gable end. To complement the bedrooms, there are three bath/shower rooms, a utility room and an integral triple carport.

Lower Brailes is located within the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with an excellent network of footpaths. The property is set down at the end of a no through lane, adjacent to open countryside. Lower and Upper Brailes offer Public Houses, an hotel, a village shop, butcher, a fine Parish church, garage, a Post Office, newsagent and bakery with more comprehensive shopping facilities in Shipston-on-Stour, Moreton-in-Marsh, Banbury and Oxford. The well-known 'Daylesford Organic Farm Shop' is located approximately 10 miles away and the new Soho Farmhouse members' club is nearby in Great Tew, some 12 miles away.

The area is well served by schools. Locally, there is a Primary school at Tysoe. Independent schools include Tudor Hall, Kitebrook, Bloxham, Sibford, Kingham Hill, The Croft and Winchester House. Further afield are Stowe, Rugby, Kings High School and Warwick Boys.

A long gravelled driveway leads up behind the property into the grounds, towards the Coach House. The gardens and grounds total approximately 1.2 acres and are predominately laid to lawn with a large south facing terrace, pond, double garage and parking.
