Modern living and land offering a real sense of space
The Little House is a delightful, detached house of Victorian origins with later additions.
Lying just on the edge of the highly sought after village of Deddington, the property is of part Hornton stone, part render construction.
The property has recently been significantly extended and modernised with attention to the use of quality fittings particularly to the kitchen and bathrooms. There is double glazing throughout, modern lighting and stone and wooden flooring. The modern nature of this house offers generous ceiling heights, large window openings allowing natural sunlight to pour in, thereby creating a real sense of light and space.
The south facing drawing room is spacious and light with double doors out into the garden making it a fantastic place to entertain all year round in a more formal setting. The extensive kitchen/breakfast room and utility room is well equipped with honed granite worktops and island making it the hub of the house with unspoilt views looking out on to the north facing paddock. There is also a sitting room for winter evenings, a family room, a gym and a study with views of the garden making it ideal for working from home.
The principal staircase leads to the galleried landing off which lies the principal, second and third bedrooms, two with en suite bathrooms, both with white fittings and playroom (scope to create a further bathroom, subject to the relevant consents). From here there is access to the secondary landing and secondary staircase, all giving access to the other bedrooms and family bathroom. This end of the house is ideal for teenagers or guests, allowing them their own space and privacy.
The house is approached by a shingle driveway leading to the front of the property with ample parking and shielded along the southern boundary by a belt of mature trees allowing for space and privacy.
Outside, the well-established gardens are mainly laid to lawn with shrub borders and a brick pergola to the east of the property. The south elevation of the house has a wonderful paved terrace making it perfect for summer entertaining with views across the mature orchard. There is gated access from the orchard, as well as gated road access, to the timber stable block comprising two stables, feed room and open hay barn with light connected. The stables are in need of some improvement. Garden store with light connected.
Double garage with light and power connected. Loft access above can be accesses via an external staircase.
There is paddock grazing of about 3.43 acres to the north with part hedge, part post and rail fenced boundaries. Separate gates lead back to the stable block and gardens.
In all about 5.87 acres.
Whilst The Little House has Victorian origins, it has been carefully and sensitively improved and refurbished, retaining much of its period charm including exposed timbers, open fireplaces and bay windows, yet allowing the 21st century to pervade throughout.

Really not a Little House! A really lovely family home in a great semi-rural setting.Nick Rudge
