    About this property

    • Located in an elevated position, Overdowns is a handsome property sitting centrally on its plot of just over 1 acre. With origins dating to the 1920's the property retains many classic arts and crafts architectural features and having evolved over the years has been more recently extended by the current owner.

      Reception rooms lead off from a most impressive central hall with panelling and imperial style staircase. The drawing and sitting rooms, with feature bay windows and working fireplaces, are connected by the garden room, itself with doors and steps to the terrace. Remodelled in in 2012, the contemporary kitchen with integrated Neff appliances opens out to the splendid conservatory at the rear of the property, which was added in 2000. The conservatory, with wood burning stove, has stairs rising to the first floor and opens to the garden. There is an internal lobby leading to rear door and downstairs shower room.

      On the first floor are five bedrooms, two of which enjoy pretty views over the gardens and to countryside beyond. There is also a family bathroom and separate WC.

      The property is approached up a private, block paving drive to the entrance and a single garage at the side of the property. Like many of the properties on Boars Hill, the established gardens have some specimen trees and copse areas. There is a terraced lawn to the front of the house and an orchard area. To the rear there is another terrace area ideal for entertaining.

      Offering a wonderful opportunity for incoming owners, Overdowns is perfect for those needing access to the city of Oxford, Abingdon and beyond.
