A beautiful Grade II Listed country house, with a 2 bed cottage and home office/games room, in a wonderful rural location close to Oxford.
Springhill House is a much loved and well presented historic house in a stunning rural location, yet very convenient for Oxford and Woodstock. The house dates from the early 17th century and is listed Grade II. The spacious family accommodation is spread over three floors and enjoys many features synonymous with the period, including some stone mullioned windows, roof and ceiling beams, leaded lights, flagstone floors and a large inglenook fireplace.
The house is surrounded by rolling farmland and an ancient woodland, over which the house enjoys lovely far reaching views. A magical property in a unique setting.
The house enjoys a right of way down the long drive (just over half a mile) from the village. To the front of the house there is plenty of parking, with access to both the front and back doors. Immediately to the rear is a charming and large paved terrace, ideal for outdoor dining. The main gardens include mature flower beds, extensive lawns with a number of trees, including an orchard. There is a kitchen garden and several useful sheds. There is also a landscaped mound, from which the views are even more spectacular.
To the north of the house, and a particular feature, is a large games room or home office together with a very appealing two bedroomed cottage, ideal for two generational living.

"I want a house at the end of a long driveway with a lovely rural feel but within easy reach of Oxford" is a regular request from aspiring buyers. They're like hens teeth is often the agents reply. Well here you have it! I love the approach through the fields of sheep and, when at the house, the amazing views across the countryside and across to the Oxford spires.Charles Elsmore-WickensProperty agent
