    About this property

    • The house is a grand Grade II Listed building, built in 1722 for John Wilmot, 2nd Earl of Rochester. First built in the Baroque style, the house was altered and enlarged in the Georgian era, retaining features of both classic architectural styles. It has recently been renovated, with great attention to restore and retain the original features. This included the fitting of a state of the art kitchen with Sub Zero, Wolf and Gaggenau appliances and the addition of underfloor heating in each bedroom suite. The ground floor of the house can easily be separated into two distinct areas, making it ideal for entertainment and family living.

      The wood panelled reception hall makes for an impressive entrance, providing access to the east and west wings. Formal rooms in the West wing, including the dining room, and ball room with adjoining bar, provide opportunity for entertaining on a grand scale. The East wing serves as an everyday living space, home to the kitchen, utility room, boot room, study and sitting room, with two sets of French doors opening onto the large garden. Below this, the cellar features a large wine cellar and plant room. A fine staircase raises from the Reception Hall to the upper floors, where there are eight impressive bedroom suites, all but one of which have adjoining bathrooms and dressing rooms.

      Accessible through a separate gated courtyard are two cottages associated with the house. The first cottage has three bedrooms and three bathrooms, a study, sitting room and kitchen. The second has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, a hall, reception room, kitchen, utility and boot room.

      The park and gardens of Adderbury House were originally designed by Lancelot Brown in 1768.
