A truly remarkable opportunity – a grand, sprawling period property situated in the Oxfordshire village of Drayton, on a generous plot, offering amazing scope for redevelopment or simply a full renovation to restore its original glory.
The Old Vicarage in Drayton offers somewhere approaching 5000 square feet of property to be fully renovated or redeveloped – and we want you to be in no doubt about the scale of the work required. The accommodation is spread over three floors (plus a basement) in the main house, with a self contained flat ideal for an au-pair with external access, as well as a detached outbuilding which we have so far not been able to access. As far as the accommodation goes in its present state, there is a reception hallway that gives access into three good-sized Reception Rooms on the ground floor, one of which benefits from a grand semi-octagonal bay window overlooking the gardens. There is a Kitchen with a large Scullery, integral Garage, a Cellar accessed from the hallway and an impressive staircase leading to the first floor.
On the first floor there are four good sized Bedrooms and two Bathrooms that belong to the main house, as well as access through to a self-contained apartment that itself offers large Bedroom, Kitchen/Living Area and Bathroom, and even has its own external access to an outdoor staircase for entirely independent access.
There is a third storey to the main house, accessed by staircase from the main first floor landing, and this offers two further double Bedrooms as well as a plant room which perhaps could be utilised to potentially offer some sort of second floor bath or shower room.
The grounds are extensive (we believe somewhere around two-thirds of an acre, but unfortunately currently unable to measure due to significant overgrowth of foliage), and there is a further out-building offering Cart-Lodge style garaging with a room above accessed that we, the agent, have been unable to yet access.
The Old Vicarage in Drayton is a beautiful property which, more than most properties, must be viewed to appreciate firstly the scale of the challenge – it really is not for the faint of heart – as well as the magnificence of the property, its character and to understand what this property could one day so gloriously become. The workload is undeniable… but the scope and potential is incredible.
Viewing by appointment only.
