Property SummaryAn impressive property in a delightful and private rural setting just eight miles by road from the university city of Oxford and boasting large gardens, designer kitchen and three of a total of six bedrooms with en suite.
Within easy reach of amenities in village of Enysham, the house also includes a double garage with electrically-operated doors, external lighting as well as a modern security system.
The hamlet of Sutton Green lies approximately eight miles by road from Oxford and its main line station. Surrounded by farmland, the property is set in private grounds at the end of a long drive and is ideally located for those who like countryside walks. However, it is also less than three miles from the larger village of Eynsham which has a Co-op convenience store, a medical centre, a pharmacy, a sports centre, a bakery, a newsagents and off-licence, a hairdressers, a selection of decent pubs - including The Swan Hotel, The Jolly Sportsman, and the Red Lion - and the Bay Leaf Restaurant. Stanton Harcourt Primary School is also within easy reach as well as the Stanton Harcourt Village Hall, which hosts classes in ballroom dancing, Zumba, childrens ballet, bounce dance and drama as well as a regular toddler group.
Separated from Eynsham Road by a long, private lane, the stone-built property enjoys gardens to three sides, the front laid largely to lawn but planted with mature shrubs and trees and screened from the worst of the winter gales by a high conifer hedge. Separated from the road by a post-and-rail fence, the lanes ends in a shared concrete driveway leading to a double garage with twin, electrically-operated, roller-shutter doors. A flagstone path between low, ornamental hedging leads to the front door which lies within a covered porch with a pitched and slated roof above.
The grounds to the rear of the house are also laid to lawn but include a flagstone patio accessed via double doors from the dining room. A flagstone stepping stone path leads across the lawn to a separate terrace used as an al fresco dining area by the current owners and surrounded by a gravel bed shaded by mature trees and shrubs. Established climbing plants add a rustic ambiance while the garden is equipped with external lighting and an outside tap.
The main access to the property is via the front door which opens onto a reception hall with stone-tiled floor. Stairs rise from here to the upper floors, there is a sizable below-stairs storage cupboard while solid-wood doors open onto the downstairs WC, living room/diner and the kitchen.
Decorated in neutral colours and with plenty of light from the four-paned window overlooking the front garden, the living room is bright and airy but illuminated after dark by both wall- and ceiling mounted lighting. Carpeted and fitted with a TV point, the sitting room space also boasts an authentic cast-iron wood-burner with a marble hearth set in a stone fireplace with solid-wood mantle above and with an adjacent alcove for storing logs recessed into the chimney breast. Double doors from the separate dining area are bracketed by additional windows and open onto the patio, adding to the sense of space in the summer months.
The well-equipped fitted designer kitchen has four, double-paned windows overlooking the front garden. The stone-tiled, easy-to-clean floor is complemented by base and wall units in white wood above and below black, granite worktops laid out in an open U shape surrounding a kitchen island with its own storage space, power points and matching granite work top. The design incorporates, under-unit down-lighting; a double gas hob with aluminium splash screen below an extractor; a double electric oven and grill; a breakfast bar with in-built shelving and wine rack; space for a double-doored American-style fridge freezer; and a composite sink with rinser, drainer and chrome mixer tap. A separate recessed area with fittings for a wall-mounted TV is large enough for a second dining table and chairs while an external door opens onto the front garden. An internal door also opens onto a larder and another onto the separate utility room, equipped with a sink, storage and worktop as well as space and plumbing for a washer/drier.
The stairs to the first floor lead to four double bedrooms, all fitted with carpets and wall-mounted radiators with separate controls to regulate warmth in winter.
The master bedroom includes a fitted wardrobe with bi-folding doors and a fully-tiled, en-suite bathroom with a glass and chrome shower cubicle; a bath with centrally-mounted shower attachment; a wall-mounted, floating sink; some in-built shelving; and dual-flush WC with concealed cistern.
Bedroom Two includes an integral double wardrobe while Bedroom Three incorporates two separate in-built wardrobes as well as a fully-tiled en-suite with modern lateral power shower; a wall-mounted sink and heated ladder-style chrome towel rail; and a WC with dual flush and concealed cistern.
Bedroom Four also includes access to the loft space, a dormer window overlooking the rear garden and its own en-suite shower room with a fully-tiled overhead shower; a wall-mounted sink; a WC with dual flush; and a heated wall-mounted towel rail in chrome.
The house bathroom is also located on the first floor and includes a bath with fully-tiled surround; a separate, fully-tiled shower cubicle; a WC with concealed cistern; and a wall-mounted sink with washstands located either side.
The stairs to the second floor emerge in a room currently used as an office by the vendors, with a solid-wood internal door opening onto Bedroom Five currently used as a games room with overhead LED rail lights, a Velux window and handy eaves storage. Bedroom Six currently used as a reading room - is also accessed from the study and includes carpets, a Velux window overlooking the rear garden and a wall-mounted radiator with separate control valve.
