Poundcroft House in East Hanney, near Wantage, has been refurbished to add a contemporary twist but still has many original features such as exposed beams and open fireplaces. The three-storey, white-washed house includes a kitchen/breakfast room and family room with a feature fireplace and French doors to the garden. There is also a sitting room with windows on three sides and a fireplace, a dining room with a window seat and three bathrooms. The house has five bedrooms, two of which are on the top floor and have exposed beams. Other highlights include a range cooker, wooden floors and a double garage. The grounds include lawns, a gravel driveway with timber gates at the entrance and a garden store. Sarah Williams, of agents John D Wood, said: “This is a substantial period house on the edge of a popular South Oxfordshire village. “It measures approximately 4,000sq ft and has been modernised to a very good standard to provide excellent and flexible accommodation over three floors.”
