Handsome period house in popular village location.
Old Wells is a striking detached, period property set within the popular village of Bloxham with an enclosed garden and barn / garage. Thought to date from 1778 and originally a Yeoman's cottage, the house retains a wealth of period features, including a flagstone floor, exposed beams throughout, and inglenook fireplace and exposed stonework.
The south facing drawing room and sitting room both benefit from sash bay windows and views onto the garden. The drawing room features a flagstone floor and inglenook fireplace with wood burner. The flexible ground floor accommodation continues with a dining / breakfast room and a kitchen which looks onto the garden. The well fitted kitchen with Cimstone onyx work surface and double sink, has access directly into the rear garden. The property also benefits from a downstairs shower room.
The four double bedrooms and fifth single bedroom are split over two floors, along with a generous landing, bathroom and separate WC on the first floor. Two of the spacious south facing bedrooms benefit from sash bay windows. There is also a cellar, which can be accessed internally and externally.
The split level, enclosed garden wraps around three sides of the house and is set behind a stone wall. It provides flexible areas with various lawn areas and plenty of space for entertaining. There is a vegetable / fruit garden and various specimen trees and plants, including silver birch, an apple tree, wisteria and a vine. There is a stone barn with wooden doors, used as a garage with a storage area above, with potential for alternative uses, subject to planning.
The flexible accommodation and village charm make this period property a rare find. Its proximity to good schooling, amenities and a variety of transportation links further enhance its appeal.

I think Old Wells has a lovely feel to it - from the wealth of period features and good ceiling height to the tucked away spot within this popular village. It's a must see in my mind.Sophie Gannon
