About this property

  • Ivy House is a charming and attractive Georgian family house, situated on Woodgreen, one of the most sought after locations in Witney. This landmark house enjoys views across to the church and the green.

    This impressive Grade II listed house is understood to date from c.1800 and is believed to have belonged to members of the Early family who founded the town's famous blanket company 'Early's of Witney'. With a handsome front façade of dressed ashlar stone and symmetrical sash windows, this striking house is a perfect example of classic Georgian architecture.

    Ivy House retains many original features, including sash windows with working shutters, cornicing and exposed wooden floors.

    The house provides a beautiful home with spacious and flexible accommodation arranged over three floors. The ground floor accommodation comprises three reception rooms, a cloakroom and a kitchen/breakfast room. The sitting room and study occupy the two rooms at the front both looking out onto the church. The dining room and kitchen run across the back of the house, providing a large bright dayroom with views onto the secluded leafy garden. This large open living space works well for family life and entertaining friends. The kitchen comprises freestanding beech units with an extractor hood plus a gas fired range cooker and dishwasher that could be available by separate negotiation.

    On the first floor are three double bedrooms and a spacious family bathroom with two further double bedrooms on the upper floor. An additional attic room is accessed through a door in one of the top bedrooms.

    The property is set back behind the original listed wrought iron railings and a front garden laid to lawn. The front garden bursts into bloom in the summer with established lavender border and an array of hollyhocks. To the side is a single garage and off street parking. To the rear of the house lies a leafy walled garden, laid to lawn and bordered with mature trees and shrubs. The Cotswold stone gravel terrace with its deep flower border is perfect for alfresco dining. The garden can also be accessed via a gate at the side.

    Woodgreen is placed at the top of Witney town. The current owners of Ivy House said “..it's just like living on a village green, but with the added bonus of all the amenities of a thriving town. The neighbours are very friendly, and the young children's play area on the green makes it easy to meet up with other young families.”
