    About this property

    • In an unrivalled and quiet location on the corner of Park Street and Rectory Lane, No 17 is a historic Grade II listed, late Georgian townhouse with breathtaking views of Blenheim; the palace, park, lake and island. Sympathetically renovated by local artesans, retaining and restoring period features, it benefits from impressive ceiling heights and plentiful sash windows, this is a bright and elegant living space over four floors, extending to more than 3500 sq ft. Constructed of limestone with a slate roof, this property has a well known history, having once been a guest house and featured in films.

      The vast sitting room, with 8'6” ceiling height, four floor to ceiling windows and an open fire leads to the generous dining room with notable bay window, formerly a chocolate shop. The kitchen, with range gas oven, overlooks the walled courtyard garden. There is a cloakroom and rear hall with internal door opening to the garden.

      On the first floor are three double bedrooms, all en suite, there is also a sunny sitting/library area overlooking the garden with park views. The top floor incorporates the principal bedroom suite including dressing room with wall to wall wardrobes, luxury bathroom with brass bath and fittings and uninterrupted, amazing views of Blenheim Palace. The 5th bedroom, currently used as a study, has idyllic views of Old Woodstock and beyond.

      The lower ground floor, with natural light, original stone floor and period range, was previously a self-contained apartment with its own access from the courtyard. It is currently used as an art and design studio with useful utility room. There is scope for alternative uses, such as games room, gym, cinema or wine cellar.

      Outside, the private courtyard is south facing so enjoys sun all day and benefits from a beautiful view of the church bell tower. There is a double side gate to Rectory Lane and a useful large outbuilding with mains electricity. Residents on-street parking.

      Luxury fittings and finishing thought.
