It has been reported that Prime Minister Boris Johnson is to rent out his cottage in Oxfordshire for a cool £4,250 a month.

Boris Johnson and his ex-wife Marina Wheeler bought the cottage in 2003 for £690,000.

Described as a “lovely Grade II listed 4 bed family home”, the property is located in North Weston, in close proximity to the town of Thame and it offers lovely walks with uninterrupted countryside views.

The 3,100 square foot cottage is let on an unfurnished basis and has a minimalist decor of white walls and mahogany flooring.

It benefits from a heated swimming pool, tennis court and maintained gardens.

A separate annex, described as a garden room, can also be found there. Converted from a barn, the self-contained building has a small kitchen and features exposed brick and a fireplace.

The £1.2m property is listed with local estate agents Strutt & Parker, and is available to rent for a minimum term of 12 months.

Pet-friendly policy

Prospective tenants with pets are welcome to apply as according to the property listing, they will be considered for the tenancy. It is not clear though if Boris Johnson is using the new model tenancy agreement promoted by the government back in February, which encourages landlords to allow pets in their rental properties in most circumstances.
