About this property

  • Holton Place is a fascinating Grade II listed property, originally part of a bigger country house, the 18th century dower house to Holton Hall and was subsequently divided into three residences.

    Tucked away in the village, with views over the gardens to the front and a glorious outlook beyond, it could suit as a comfortable family home or, alternatively, as a weekend retreat from the hurly burly of everyday life.

    The elegance of the drawing room is enhanced by the high ceiling, and it has an open fireplace and a striking leaded bay window. The welcoming, kitchen/dining room, formerly the ballroom, also has a high ceiling and, with large windows on two sides overlooking the gardens, it is ideal for entertaining and family gatherings.

    There is also a separate sitting room and a snug for those wanting some peace and quiet. The practical layout of the bedrooms and bathrooms on the first floor, particularly with two separate staircases, will appeal to families of all ages, and there is an additional downstairs bathroom, cloakroom and utility room.

    The mature, parkland style grounds are an appealing feature. The gardens of Holton Place lie either side of the sweeping driveway leading to the front of the house, and they are laid to lawn and interspersed with an interesting variety of trees and shrubs.

    An attractively laid out courtyard garden to the rear has been landscaped and incorporates paved terraces and raised beds, and is ideal as a fruit and vegetable or herb garden. Planning permission was granted in 2018 for a triple bay garage.

Fancy a taste of country living? - lying close to nearby walks and with great access to Oxford, Holton Place has such a welcoming feel, and will appeal as a home or as a cosy weekend retreat.
