A substantial family house
Boars Hill House is a substantial and striking house of brick construction and offers extensive accommodation and leisure facilities in a private setting close to Oxford. The ground floor has a number of large reception rooms, with the principal rooms overlooking the gardens. The kitchen and breakfast room lie to the rear of the house with a number of domestic offices and staff rooms. On the upper floors, there is a good ratio of bedrooms to bathrooms which are well proportioned and enjoy views over the gardens. The master bedroom suite has a generous bedroom with two private balconies, sitting room, three dressing rooms and a study.
The swimming pool complex incorporates a salt based swimming pool, a spa bath and sauna. The pool room has retractable glass walls which open up to both the lawn and large deck area with summer house. Above the pool room is a family/ games room with wooden floor. A large balcony overlooks the garden with views both to the house and ponds. Stretching the length of the lower pond is a raised deck which forms the roof of the bowling alley. To the west of the house, beside the parking area, is a large purpose built garage block with space for 3 cars and the annexe is to the rear.
Gardens & Grounds
To the front of the house is a large lawned area with borders and flanked by large mature trees. The lawn is approached from the terrace which is to the rear of the house with steps down to the lawn. The tennis court has decking above the bowling alley which doubles up as a gallery area. The decking area beyond the swimming pool complex is built around a fish pond with a small island and a covered gazebo and a rock waterfall that flows from the upper pond down to the lower pond.
To the west of the house, is a large purpose built garage block with up and over doors and space for 3 cars. There is access from the garage to the annexe which provides a sitting room with kitchen, bathroom and two bedrooms.
