An imposing 17th Century period house, situated in this sought after village just to the North East of Oxford, providing substantial accommodation arranged over three floors, various barns and outbuildings and a separate self contained cottage which is currently used for holiday lets. There is an option to remove the cottage from the title if preferred.
The property, built of stone with a later brick addition, has been well maintained and offers a wealth of character features including high ceilings, wood panelling and inglenook fireplaces. The principle reception rooms are all of an exceptional size including the hall with inglenook fireplace, dining room and drawing room with access to the conservatory. There is also a well fitted kitchen breakfast room, tack room, laundry room, cloakroom and scullery with flag stone floor on the ground floor. Upstairs, on the first floor there are five bedrooms to include a spacious master bedroom suite with dressing room and en-suite and a further family bathroom. Three further bedrooms, a bathroom and an attic room can be found on the second floor.
Outside there is a separate two bedroom cottage which has its own private enclosed garden. The current owners let the cottage as holiday accommodation throughout the year and would be happy to assist any purchaser considering the same. There are also further period outbuildings which could be converted, subject to the necessary planning consents.
The beautiful gardens and grounds extend to approximately 2.68 acres and feature a large sun terrace with swimming pool, extensive lawns and mature trees and shrubs. There is also a paddock which adjoins the main garden and limited additional fencing would create a totally enclosed area of c. 1 acre. The potential exists to purchase additional land very close by in the village. The gardens are screened by trees offering seclusion and privacy and to the rear of the garden there are lovely views over far reaching countryside and Otmoor. There is ample off street parking for several vehicles to the side of the property.
The property was the residence of the famous artist William Logsdail who lived here from 1922-1944 and a blue historical plaque can be found on the front of the house.
This is a very unusual property offering flexible accommodation in an idyllic location. Please don't hesitate to call us to discuss how it could work for you.
