Exquisite town house with beautiful gardens.
Witney House is an impressive Grade II listed Georgian town house with Arts and Crafts later additions. Its imposing façade belies the peace and tranquillity of the interior and the delightful walled gardens beyond. The house has been sympathetically renovated and updated by the present owners and now successfully combines period features with contemporary design. Flagstone and wood floors, original window shutters, Crittel and stone mullioned windows, fireplaces, including a Trompe-l'il surround, feature and sit effortlessly with the contemporary fittings in the kitchen and bathrooms. The striking hallway sits centre stage within the house with all ground floor rooms leading off.
The kitchen/breakfast room is a welcoming room with its bespoke painted units, Silestone worktops, fully fitted out larder cupboard, island and window seats. The dining room reaches from the front of the house through French doors to the garden room and courtyard terrace beyond. The beautiful drawing room looks out through tall windows and French doors to the terraced garden and spans the width of the house. The study or snug interconnects the dining and drawing rooms with delightful views to the courtyard. There is also a useful utility room and cloakroom.
The cantilevered staircase seemingly floats to the first floor with its galleried landing. The principal bedroom suite is of particular note. A charming sitting area opens to the main bedroom with views of the garden and a bathroom with large shower and freestanding bath. There are 3 further generously sized bedrooms, all with en suite shower rooms. Stairs rise again to the second floor, where the guest bedroom suite comprises 2 bedrooms and a shower room.
Outside - A walled terrace wraps around the south facing rear of the house overlooking the formal walled garden below. Paths meander through the garden rooms, separated by mature Yew and Box hedging, interspersed with established herbaceous beds. A delightful courtyard sits to the west side opening from the garden room. The large cellar is approached via steps near the back door where there is also a shed attached to the house. There is a useful, wide gated side access from the road to the garden. A gate opens from the end of the garden to the enclosed private parking area with ample parking for 5 cars.
