House for sale in Oxfordshire 'will make countryside dream come true'

House for sale in Oxfordshire 'will make countryside dream come true'

Homeowners looking to move to the countryside could follow in the footsteps of one couple by looking at a house for sale in Oxfordshire.

Nigel and Gemma Harris are selling their three-acre, five-bedroom property in the village of Hethe in order to be able to grow their fresh produce business, but admitted that the house has helped them live out their rural dream.

Speaking to the Telegraph, the couple said that they started out with a modest farm shop where they just intended to sell some jam and eggs, but soon started selling potatoes, carrots and greens and now want to get a goat and pigs.

"Everybody wants a slice of the good life now, with chooks in the back garden and a veg patch," Ms Harris said.

Commenting on the £1.4 million house for sale, she added: "It is rustic. People love coming in, they have a lot of fun and chit chat."

Strutt & Parker recently claimed that farmland could be a good investment as prices are expected to increase over the next few years.ADNFCR-1222-ID-800015143-ADNFCR
