Stanford Park Farm, South Oxfordshire

A real Oxfordshire gem, enormous diverse development potential, dilapidated condition – a Grade II Listed Georgian farm with 240 acres

Ring fenced level pasture, gardens and woodland together with a number of period farm buildings exposing obvious potential for diversity into separate dwellings as well as the opportunity for re-building and re-forming an intelligently laid out farm; together with a truly enchanting c.5000 sq. ft. Georgian farmhouse.

A success story…

Marketing found its foothold in a more cautious market in early autumn 2013 at a conservative guide price of £2.2m; after over 100 viewings, demand culminating from multiple bidders took the eventual selling price upward of circa 35% in excess of the guide, completing at £3m later that autumn.

Today the farm is both operational and diversified, once again operating as a fully functioning working farm with huge amount of rejuvenation in the form of state of the art farm buildings; the former working buildings and farmhouse currently being sympathetically restored and re-developed but with a modern day purpose; a bold but fine investment.

"I would just like to say a huge thank you to the Lettings Team at Douglas and Simmons. When I needed to rent a property at very short notice they found a lovely house almost immediately and I was able to move in within two weeks. When the inevitable teething problems crept in, they were always on hand to resolve them, even coming round to the property to check everything was ok. I’ve always found each of them to be friendly, approachable, efficient and very competent and I would have absolutely no hesitation in thoroughly recommending them to anybody thinking of renting in the area."
