Case Studies

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.
