Extended and modernised in the last 10 years this fabulous property sits in just over an acre of its own grounds to the rear of a Jacobean manor house.
An enormous amount of care and attention has gone into highlighting the period features of the property whilst matching this splendour in the newly developed sections.
This Grade II listed property also benefits from a good sized cellar with ample head height which could potentially make a good cinema room or wine cellar for example.
A winding gravel driveway leads from the main road. Approaching the property there is a real sense of seclusion. Ample parking is found here. The grounds consist of a long stretch of garden of over 100 metres in length which contains a long pond, a dovecote, mature trees and terraced walkways. To the West of the house is a large, square, walled rose garden. The garage is en bloc, close by.
Internally, the property has very generous living space - a kitchen with space for dining, a dining room, a drawing room with magnificent fire place and views over the pond and garden and a large study with vaulted ceiling. The ground floor also has an entrance hall, a rear hall, a utility room, cloakroom and a guest suite. Over the study is the main bedroom with a walk in wardrobe and a large bathroom. To the entrance hall, a stunning staircase leads to further bedrooms and bathrooms. First left is a family bathroom, from which large loft spaces can be accessed, a smaller double bedroom is next to this and through a Narnia door is another impressive bedroom with an en suite shower room and a walk in wardrobe.
Beautiful fireplaces, oak panelling, stone walls and beams compliment the age of the original house. The new has been done in keeping. A rare and special property.
Situated within a short walk to a Post Office/ convenience store, 3 local public houses, a doctors’ surgery, a church, a park and a village hall, this property is found moments away from plenty of amenities.
There are some popular public houses within walking distance and Soho Farmhouse is just a 25 minute drive away.
Shipton Under Wychwood is a delightful village in rolling hills of the Evenlode Valley, caught between the market towns of Chipping Norton and Burford. Nearby Witney is a 15 minute
drive, whilst Oxford and Cheltenham provide the main shopping and cultural centres of the area.
There are excellent road links to Burford (A40 to Cheltenham and Oxford), Chipping Norton and Stow-On-The-Wold to name but a few. Charlbury, 6 miles away, has a mainline station with regular trains to Oxford (20 mins) and London Paddington (80 mins). All distances and times are approximate.
