The British prime minister is tapping into the surging demand for leafier rural homes outside major cities.
A country bolthole owned by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is now available to rent.
Sequestered among the open countryside on the outskirts of the Oxfordshire town of Thame—roughly 13 miles east of Oxford. The upscale farmhouse emerged on the rental market on Sunday with estate agency Strutt & Parker for the reasonably modest sum of £4,250 (US$5,841) per month.
Property records identify Alexander Boris Johnson, which is the prime minister’s given name, as the owner of the home, and estimate the property’s value at £1.2 million.
That’s roughly twice the £640,000 the home was bought for in 2003, listing records with Zoopla show.
Dubbed The Old Farm House, the historic four-bedroom family home is fitted with a swimming pool, a tennis court and a separate annex. It can be used as an office, according to the listing.
“The Old Farm House is a unique property on today’s lettings market,” Alice Prothero, director of Strutt & Parker Banbury, said in a statement. “Its availability is rare because demand for country houses to rent has never been so high, leading to a widespread shortage of good quality stock. The Old Farm House has already been popular with interested parties in the two days it’s been on the market—it ticks lots of boxes for families.”
Demand for country homes has skyrocketed amid the coronavirus pandemic, as people look to escape from crowded locales and to areas where greater square footage and access to the outdoors is more readily available.
“With the next few summer months spreading out in front of us, never has a period property with tennis court and swimming pool been so attractive for those wanting to ‘try before they buy’ in this beautiful part of Oxfordshire,” Ms. Prothero said.
