Revealed - Boris Johnson’s choice of agent to let his country house

Prime Minister Boris Johnson is to let his Oxfordshire cottage out – and predictably, he’s chosen an upmarket letting agent.

Strutt & Parker has been reported to be letting the property, which is a 3,100 square foot cottage with four bedrooms, a heated swimming pool, tennis court and uninterrupted countryside views.

The description places the property as “a lovely Grade II-listed 4-bed family cottage” with “lovely walks and pubs nearby”.


Perhaps controversially, he’s allowing pets although it’s not clear whether he’s using the new model tenancy agreement promoted by the government back in February, which advocates landlords accepting pets in most circumstances.

The minimum tenancy is for 12 months, and the rent is £4,250 pcm. 

Johnson and ex-wife Marina Wheeler bought the house for £690,000 in 2003; the Mail describes its interior as consisting of white walls and mahogany flooring.

The 3,100 sq ft property also has an annexe, which is described by Strutt as a garden room. Converted from a barn, the self-contained building has a small kitchen and features exposed brick and a fireplace. 

The Mail’s story contains some images of the property – you can see the article here.
