Property for Sale / Posted 8 months ago
A substantial village house set in a 0.4 acre plot that has been superbly restored to create a magnificent family home convenient for Oxford & London.
A truly exceptional period house restored to an exemplary standard and now offering superbly proportioned and truly light accommodation in a desirable village location. The distinctive “broken plan” arrangement creates a wonderful feeling of space throughout the three reception rooms and fine kitchen at the heart of this home. Beautiful stone flooring flows throughout this area as well as in the hall, utility room and downstairs cloakroom. The kitchen is particularly worthy of mention with high quality bespoke cabinetry, stone working surfaces, butler’s sink and gas fired AGA. A separate, more formal drawing room has fitted bookcasing and comfortably accommodates a grand piano to one end with a gas fired ‘wood burner’ set into an inglenook fireplace opposite. A separate, enclosed helical staircase ascends to the first floor.
Both the principal reception rooms are beamed and the sitting room features a fine open fireplace.
There are four bedrooms on the first floor with those at either end of the house being equally suited to being used as the master. The sumptuously appointed family bathroom has a large walk-in shower in addition to a freestanding bath and is complemented by a further shower room and separate night cloakroom. The fifth bedroom on the top floor is approached via an impressive double height stairwell and would make a good, generous study.
The house is set in grounds of around 2/5 of an acre with a gravel drive providing parking for several vehicles on the approach to a detached double garage. The main area of garden is to the rear and enjoys a sunny, southerly aspect as well as a high degree of privacy. The Vendor’s sole agent wholeheartedly recommends early viewing to avoid disappointment!
