Birch Tree House is a four bedroom detached home accessed by a private road in the highly regarded village of Worminghall. Offering versatile and spacious accommodation arranged over two floors, the current owners have upgraded and extended the property to provide a modern family home including Schuco bi-fold doors leading to the garden providing great entertaining space. The highly specified, contemporary open-plan kitchen/diner is at the heart of this lovely home with Neff appliances, Silestone worktops and Fired Earth tiles with underfloor heating. The living room, with an outlook on to the private, enclosed garden, features a library / music area, a parquet floor and an inviting multi-fuel stove ideal for those wintery months. On the first floor there are four well-proportioned bedrooms, a family bathroom and ensuite to the master bedroom. The loft space is boarded and shelved providing generous storage space. Externally there is a large workshop (with power) that could serve multiple uses and the courtyard garden features an apple tree along with off street parking for two vehicles. The overall setting is peaceful and offers a fine balance of rural living with all the benefits of local amenities and transport links to Oxford, Thame and Bicester in close proximity.

Worminghall is a highly sought after village which is in the catchment for the Aylesbury grammar schools and Wheatley Park Secondary School (subject to the usual acceptance). The local primary school, served by a school bus, is in the neighbouring village of Ickford, and is in the top 0.1% of schools in England. Ickford pupils also transfer to Lord William's School in Thame for secondary education. Worminghall benefits from a grade ll listed Norman church, an active village community and the popular Clifden Arms, whose play area is shortly to be refurbished. The village is circa 8 miles from Oxford with all its shopping and leisure amenities along with the universities and hospitals. The market town of Thame is around 10 minutes drive offering a wide range of shops and amenities, Bicester's amenities, including the popular Bicester Village are approximately 11 miles away. Haddenham & Thame Parkway station is 15 minutes drive enabling access to London Marylebone within an hour. Worminghall is located 3 miles from the Junction of the M40 providing access to London and the Midlands.
In the owner’s words:
“Birch Tree House has been a fantastic home for our growing family. We have the best of both worlds - with the ability to live a town and country lifestyle. We were drawn to the peace and tranquillity of the countryside and all that a small village can offer, yet within 20 minutes we can be on a train to London, enjoying the culture and bustle of Oxford or the shopping at Bicester Village.
There are many lovely walks from the house, whether exploring the neighbouring airfield or Bernwood Forest, or a short stroll across the fields to the shops in Ickford or Waterperry. The village pub which is now owned by a small group of villagers offers good, traditional pub food.
We have significantly renovated our home over the last 8 years and it provides flexible, modern family living, where the living accommodation flows easily giving us all space to do our own thing. We both work partly from home - the best place to work is from the dining table looking out at the garden for inspiration! We particularly love the ability to open up the bi-fold doors in the summer and enjoy indoor/outdoor living. We will really miss this aspect of our home.
We have found the garden to be the perfect size - we have two children and, with busy lives, the garden is easy to maintain, not overlooked, enjoys the morning and late afternoon sunshine and provides a safe and secure place to play, entertain or relax. The birch tree, from which our home takes its name, along with the other mature shrubs and trees, is a haven for wildlife and we enjoy looking out for the woodpecker, jay and a myriad of other garden birds. The courtyard garden is a real sun trap with an apple tree and workshop and we think that this space presents a real opportunity for the next owners of the house to create an even better courtyard space.
This has been a great family home, we have been very fortunate to have great neighbours and friends and we shall miss Birch Tree House!”
