This handsome Grade ll Listed property evokes a real sense of Woodstock’s past and is discreetly positioned near to the ‘Kissing Gate’ access point to the grounds of Blenheim Palace.
Internally, the property is steeped in character whilst having relevance to contemporary living with sensitive modern-day interventions. To the left-hand side of the entrance hall, a Sebastian Cox deVOL kitchen is complemented by a solid oak parquet floor with underfloor heating. It has been designed to accommodate a dining table and chairs and comes with a modern AGA and a copper sink with Perrin and Rowe unlacquered brass taps. On the opposite side of the hall, a stained-glass door opens to a restful sitting room with a Chesney’s log burner and Carrara marble shelves offering support and shade for a television. Two bedrooms occupy the first floor as well as a period-style bathroom with a rolled top bath and a honed marble sink which has been set on the window ledge of the bathroom for the purpose of maximising floor space. The second floor is arranged to contain a large double bedroom and a study/dressing room plus a well-appointed wet room with underfloor heating. Many of the rooms and connecting areas have painted wooden floorboards underfoot and form an important part of the property’s stylish colour scheme. In addition, the property has been supplied with a Nest Security Camera system and Nest Thermostats for better heating management and improved energy efficiency.
Outside, there is a driveway parking for two cars and a cleverly landscaped split-level garden laid out with lawn and herb shelves and a sheltered seating adjacent to a barbeque and fire pit. Notably, there is a covered storage section at the rear of the property complete with integrated wooden racking.
