Light and spacious family home in a desirable Oxfordshire village.
With C17th origins, Churchfield was added to during the Victorian era and again in more recent times. It is situated at the end of a private lane, set back behind high stone walls and wrought iron gates. The large square hallway, with its stone flagged floor, is situated in the heart of the house with all main rooms leading directly off. The kitchen/breakfast room has a delightful glazed garden room' extension with French doors opening to the terrace. A 2-door Aga adds to the welcoming atmosphere of this room and there is also a full size Rangemaster cooker with five gas burners and a warming plate.
The living room has a step down to the garden end making a natural division to this huge room. Its size offers complete versatility of use and, as presently used, makes an ideal family space to relax in. Five heritage skylights flood this room with natural light. The drawing room has an open fireplace with an attractive Carrara marble surround. The dining room is situated between the kitchen and drawing room and features an
unusual square bay window. There is also a study, utility room, cloakroom and wine store.
The oak staircase rises from the hall with its two quarter turns, arriving at a large galleried landing. Wide steps rise to an upper landing with a bank of wardrobes and storage cupboards. The principal bedroom has fitted wardrobes and a large en suite bathroom with freestanding roll top bath and separate shower. The guest bedroom has an en suite shower room. There are four further double bedrooms (three with built in wardrobes) and a family bathroom.
The present owners have installed new double-glazed windows throughout the house.
There is a deep grass verge at the approach to the property, bordered by mature shrubs. The front gravelled drive provides ample parking for a number of cars with a double garage beyond. Raised sleeper beds border the drive, planted with mature laurel hedging and four tall cypress trees.
The walled rear garden is mostly laid to lawn with terraces surrounding the house. Rose beds border the kitchen terrace with lovely views to the C12th church, just beyond the wall. A designated children's activity area has rubber chippings creating a safe space for play. There is also a traditional Victorian-style National Trust greenhouse.
