About this property

  • Grade II listed house of 17th century origins with later additions.

    Ironstone construction under a tiled roof.

    Wealth of period features including open fireplaces, exposed timbers, mullion windows, leaded lights, window seats, exposed stone walling, and wooden flooring.

    The house has recently undergone sympathetic refurbishment bringing a modern feel to the house. In particular attention has been paid to the installation of quality fittings including shaker style kitchen, island unit, composite work surfaces, Rangemaster kitchen range, Fisher and Paykel dishwasher and wood burning stove. This is now very much the hub of the property.

    Improvements extend upstairs as well, with fashionable copper roll top bath and white bathroom fittings, cast iron radiators throughout, modern lighting and a new gas central heating system.

    There is useful snug/ home office tucked away at the rear with large walk in storage cupboard.

    Ample enclosed gardens lie to the side and rear, laid to lawn. Vegetable garden with raised beds, ornamental pond and two stone stores. Being enclosed they provide a wonderful private oasis with views of Bloxham church.

    Stone workshop with light and power connected adjoins the rear of the house and offers scope for conversion subject to the relevant consents.

    Crucial to village living is off road parking and a single garage.

    In all about 0.47 acres.

When I walked in I found The Old Manor had a really good feel to it, a homely kitchen/breakfast room with a welcoming wood burning fire. Having been sensitively improved by the current owners it is rare find tucked away in the village.
