A stone-built period detached home, set in private grounds of approximately 5 acres in a hill-top position on a quiet country lane, surrounded by countryside with far reaching views across Oxfordshire yet only a few minutes from Bampton and Witney.
The property dates back 100 years and has been extended and improved in a bold contemporary style. It features a large, bright and airy family kitchen/living space with bi-folding doors opening onto the patio and gardens and with stunning views.
The entrance leads to an open hallway running through to the family living area with polished wooden flooring. The reception rooms include a large sitting room and a study, both overlooking the gardens and countryside beyond. There are 5 bedrooms, three on first-floor levels accessed via two separate staircases: a main airy bedroom with ensuite shower-room; two ground-floor bedrooms with adjacent bathroom and cloakroom: and bedrooms 4 and 5, with a Jack and Jill bathroom between them.
Through the front gate the large gravel driveway offers parking for many vehicles, and a substantial triple bay wooden carport and attached lockable shed. Around the property is a large patio leading to open gardens and a large natural well-stocked pond that attracts wildlife (herons, geese, ducks, moorhens, pheasants, deer, hares/rabbits, foxes, dragonflies, butterflies and kites). The grounds also feature an orchard and impressive private arboretum, including many rare and unusual trees from around the world (inventory available) originally planted by an Oxford University academic.
The house benefits from generous cellar and attic space. It has double-glazing and a new oil central heating boiler (2019). The property has Gigaclear high speed fibre broadband, perfect for working from home.
This house with its large site and unique trees offers a striking combination of space and privacy, ideal for comfortable family life. There is plenty of scope both for the house and within the grounds for creative ambitious improvements such as a tennis court, swimming pool, tree-houses, garden study/office, zip-wires etc, subject to planning consent as required.
