From Banbury take the A423 Southam Road and after approximately 2 1/2 miles take the right hand turning signposted for Great Bourton and Cropredy. Travel through Great Bourton and the gated entrance to the field will be found on the right hand side before the bridge on the edge of Cropredy is reached.
The property lies between the villages of Great Bourton and Cropredy. Great Bourton is located approximately 4 miles to the north of Banbury with easy access to the M40 motorway. Within the village there is a public house, park/play area with football pitch and a church.
Cropredy lies approximately 1/2 a mile distant. This is a popular and thriving village with good facilities including a Parish Church, Methodist Chapel, two public houses, doctor's surgery, shop, tea room and a primary school.
The site comprises three smallholding enclosures of pasture enclosed by stock proof hedgerows and fences. Of historical ridge and furrow the whole extends to just under 2 acres.
Inside the gated entrance, to the left, there is a brick former sheep shed/hay store/stable.
As one enters the site there is a large gravelled driveway and hardstanding for turning and parking. To the right of the entrance there is a newly constructed building providing staff facilities, store rooms and stabling.
Cherwell District Council (North Oxfordshire) granted Planning Permission on 16th September 2015 (Application number 15/01587/F) for "Demolition of existing toilet and shower block and construction of stable building with three stables, feed store, mare and foal stables for the breeding of foals and also including toilet/shower facilities and restroom for staff use. Change of use from agriculture to agriculture and equestrian (mixed use)".
Within the last 18 months the current owner has constructed, to a high standard, a fabulous single storey building with stabling. Built of insulated blockwork beneath a pitched slate roof the property comprises:
* Rest room
* Inner hall with double glazed door to outside, trap to roof space.
* Shower room with shower cubicle, vanity wash basin with mixer tap, WC, chrome radiator, ceramic tiled splashbacks and floor.
* Feed store/tack room.
* Stable with space for three boxes.
* uPVC double glazed windows and doors. Gas underfloor heating. BT is installed and wi-fi available.
Mains water is piped to the site and there is mains drainage. There is no mains electricity but this is provided by way of a generator. Liquid propane gas central heating.
Tenure and Possession
The land is freehold and vacant possession will be given on completion.
The attached Ordnance Survey extract is for identification purposes only and has not been updated by our provider Promap.
A public footpath runs from the northeastern to the southwestern boundaries of the field.
In the past caravan and camping usage was available. This was restricted to a maximum stay of 28 days during any one period and no more than three times per annum. A licence from The Camping and Caravan Club we believe could still be obtained and we understand that up to five caravans and ten tent pitches could be installed at any one time. If this sort of enterprise is attractive prospective buyers should make their own enquiries.
The property may be viewed by prior appointment with the selling agents Anker & Partners, telephone 01295 271414.
