About this property

  • Sydenham House is an impressive Grade II listed former farmhouse of 17th Century origins accessed through wrought iron gates. The current owners have carried out an extensive and sympathetic restoration programme introducing modern living amongst the period charm. The attention to detail and care taken is impressive. There are a wealth of period features including an inglenook fireplace, mullioned and leaded light windows, flagstone floors, exposed timbers, wooden flooring, windows seats, working interior shutters and solid oak doors.

    As is often the way with these older farmhouses, you have a choice of entering the house through a formal front door into the dining hall, or a more informal route through a lovely stable door into the kitchen/ breakfast room which is very much the hub of the house with a four oven, mains gas, Aga and modern fitted units. From here there is a door to the snug, perfect for winter evenings, a further door to the impressive drawing room, with outside stable door to the sun terrace, beyond is the dining hall. There is a cellar accessed via the drawing room.

    There are dual staircases leading to the generous bedroom accommodation, on the first and second floors, plus a dressing room (possible further bedroom).

    An adjoining stable block has been recently converted to an annex with a kitchen, sitting room/bedroom and wet room ideal for working from home, a gym, multi-generational living or guest accommodation for family and friends.

    Private parking for six cars, planning permission exists for a car port.

    Partly walled gardens offering a delightful sun trap and space for entertaining. Garden store.

    Distinct advantages include spacious accommodation; in good order; period features; private, central village position; annex; private and enclosed gardens.

I love the privacy this house offers particularly the spacious feel and abundance of light. It is conveniently tucked away with direct access to Adderbury Lakes.
