Property description

DESCRIPTION Originally built in the 1960's the existing house now requires substantial renovation or replacement but offers an exciting opportunity to create a superb family home. Lying in an elevated rural position with far reaching views of 'Oxford's dreaming Spires' and set in 2.6 acres, the property is well placed for Oxford with its superb amenities and a wide range of schools including nearby Chandlings Manor, Radley, Cothill and the well reputed Abingdon and Oxford schools.

The existing accommodation is over 2 floors and comprises 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen, cloakroom and 2 reception rooms. It is well set back from the road and approached over a drive to the side of the house and garage. Plans have been drawn up for a proposed single storey extension to the property which falls within the limit of permitted development. (see link below to VOWH District Council website for further information).

The proposed replacement dwelling of 4,456 sq ft, would comprise 5 first floor bedrooms, 2 with en suite facilities; of particular note is the master suite with balcony situated at the rear of the house to take advantage of the views. The property would also benefits from a superb open plan ground floor with an abundance of natural light.

The house enjoys mature gardens with a number of fine mature trees and private paddock land to the rear of the garden from which there are delightful views over open fields to Oxford's dreaming spires beyond. There is also a share of a substantial woodland. In all about 2.6 acres.
