About this property

  • Lynton House is an elegant Grade II Listed house originally the home of John Early, of the well-known family who founded the town's famous blanket company ‘Early's of Witney'. The original part of the house, dating from 1797, has a very attractive façade overlooking the garden at the rear. In 1820 the substantial front of the house was added and included a handsome symmetrical 3-window range façade overlooking Woodgreen.

    The property is a perfect example of classic Georgian/Regency architecture with elegant and spacious rooms with high ceilings, cornicing, panelling and wide sash windows with working shutters. The front door has decorative fanlight set in a pedimented stone door case with Tuscan columns, opens to the hallway with a fine early 19th century staircase and flagstone flooring which continues through the house to the stained glass back door opening to the garden. The house provides a beautiful home with spacious and flexible accommodation.

    The ground floor accommodation comprises three reception rooms, a cloakroom and a kitchen/breakfast room with pantry. The dining room is a particularly attractive room with ornate plasterwork to the ceiling and two bookcases set either side of the attractive marble fireplace housing a log burning stove. The study room is a very comfortable room with panelling and cupboards with glazed fronted book shelves set either side of the marble fireplace. The kitchen with gas-fired AGA has a range of fitted cupboards, a pantry and parquet flooring. Off the kitchen is the sitting room, a charming room with a log burning stove and French doors to the rear garden.

    At first floor level, leading off the wide landing, are four double bedrooms and two bathrooms, one of which can also be used as an en suite to the main bedroom. All the bedrooms have fitted wardrobes and the bathrooms have recently been refurbished. Stairs from the landing lead to the two attic rooms.

    Adjacent to the gravelled parking area is the Folly a detached stone building with shuttered windows, fireplace and log burning stove. Next door is a timber garden shed and in the garden is an excellent studio with power and light. The property is approached via a gravelled drive (over which Lynton House has a right of way) which leads to the parking space next to the Folly. From here a gate opens to the enclosed south facing garden mainly laid to lawn with a central gravel pathway, edged with lavender, leading to the house and a paved terrace off the sitting room.

    Mains gas, electricity, water and drainage are connected to the property. Gas-fired central heating.
