Property Details

Set in ground of circa 1 acre, this charming home has been extended and much improved by the current owners whilst retaining many of the original features and overall look of the house. The highlight is an oak frame extension using European oak timbers, constructed in 2016 and designed to maximise the views of the formal garden to the rear and the valley beyond. It drops down from the main house level to follow the slope of the garden and comprises two identical wings with vaulted ceilings and a sun room with a lantern window above it. One wing of the extension is given over to the kitchen/diner and the other is used as the master bedroom with en suite and walk in closet.

A spacious hallway, the property also offers a further reception room, utility room and three further bedrooms one of which also offers an en-suite, along with a family bathroom.

Outside, the extensive gardens are laid out in three main levels with the upper level covered in extensive mature shrubs and the other levels being laid out mostly to grass. The current owners had been planning major developments in the garden involving a series of water features linking the various levels but have put these plans on hold for the prospective purchasers to put their own stamp on. The gardens therefore offer wonderful opportunities for development or would suit a young family just as they are.

Shotover Country Park offers everyone a chance to enjoy a place of beauty and history right on the edge of Oxford. Covering 117 hectares on the southern slopes of Shotover Hill there are spectacular views from the top across south Oxfordshire.The park is an intimate mosaic of hidden valleys, varied landscapes and diverse habitats; a haven for wildlife and an ideal setting for peaceful enjoyment of the countryside.

Being located just beside Shotover Park, the house affords a countryside lifestyle whilst also offering very fast and convenient access through the park into Headington and the hospitals as well as to the city itself.
