About this property

  • Grey Roofs is a charming 17th century, Grade II listed property nestled in the popular village of Bloxham.

    A detached house constructed of local Hornton stone, under tiled roof, with private courtyard parking.

    There are an extent of period features throughout the property including inglenook and fireplace, cast iron radiators, original beams, mullion windows, characterful window seats, window shutters, and original oak doors.

    This house has been in the same family ownership for nearly 50 years and is now in need of modernisation and improvement.

    The downstairs of the property compromises of an entrance hall with pantry, utility room and downstairs shower room. The kitchen is of good size, with traditional AGA and plenty of storage. The sitting room is spacious with inglenook and gas fire. There is a separate dining room, study/ office and also a cellar. Although in need of modernisation, there is such great potential to bring this house back to a wonderful family home.

    The accommodation laid out on the first floor is accessed by two characterful staircases. The principal bedroom is of good size, with two walk in cupboards and dual aspect windows. There are three further bedrooms, all of equally impressive size with plenty of space, inbuilt storage cupboards and wardrobes and good light and one has a shower and sink inbuilt to the room. The family bathroom is in need of updating but is a very generous size.

    There is secondary accommodation via an interconnecting annex on the first floor which is made up of a sitting room, kitchen, one bedroom and a bathroom. This annex has a separate entrance to the front of the property but could easily be incorporated back into the main house.

    There are extensive attics which are fully boarded and are accessed by wooden stairs. The end room in the attic has a window overlooking the side of the property.

    Grey Roofs offers a very surprising and impressive garden set in approximately 0.65acres. There is such a wide variety throughout this generous plot including a pretty front garden with path leading to the front door, a well garden with working well and courtyard, covered walk way, swimming pool with outdoor changing cubicles, lawns, ponds, stone archways, seating areas, flower beds, mature trees and shrubs. It is completely enclosed by a beautiful stone wall, making it a magical, private haven. There are also a selection of outbuildings, including a workshop, gardeners W/C, outer storage cupboards, a green house, an open summerhouse and two garages. Both garages have power and the larger of the two which has a staircase and a boarded upper storey has great potential to convert into versatile, secondary accommodation (subject to relevant planning.)

    The entrance to the property is gated, providing great privacy. This leads to paved, private parking to the front of the property. There is also ample off street parking.

It is so unusual to have a plot like this in the middle of a village. I think this is such an exciting opportunity to transform a period property in to something very special.
