The Coach House is a unique detached country residence in need of some updating, converted from the former coaching house that served the prestigious Victorian Rectory, on the edge of the village of Oakford. The attractive stone property now offers a good sized four bedroom family home with many character features in a beautiful and tranquil setting. Situated off a private drive and set within over 5 acres of large gardens and paddocks, including a small wooded copse, vegetable and fruit gardens. A useful range of outbuildings which include a large workshop, double garage with store beyond and useful one bedroom accommodation (which could be upgraded subject to planning permission). Stable block with three stalls/hay store and tack room. Within the grounds are a bank of solar panels installed by the current owner. The panels currently produce an income in the region of £1,500 per annum.
