Listed Georgian Manor House. Beautifully presented and much loved family home, perfectly situated for Oxford and London.
The Manor House has been refurbished and decorated to a very high standard, whilst retaining the charm and warm character of this lovely home. The main body of the house is Georgian and believed to be late 18th century with subsequent 19th and 20th century additions and alterations. Parts date from the 15th century.
The wonderful timber framed Old Hall is the oldest
part and evidence of this era is also apparent on the east side of the house where there are some beautiful original stone mullioned windows, one of which is in the drawing room.
The main Georgian front wing, along with the Old Hall wrap around a secluded open-air central courtyard. There are a number of open fireplaces throughout and some elegant Georgian floor to ceiling sash windows.
There is particularly fine cornicing in the reception hall and other interesting examples of cornicing and paneling in the drawing room, sitting room and dining room.
The room proportions are all ideal for entertaining and for very comfortable modern family living. The large, high ceilinged kitchen is at the heart of the house and opens onto the courtyard. The views to the south are far reaching and glorious.
The house sits in about 2 acres of beautiful gardens with lawns, mature trees and herbaceous borders. A parterre and outdoor dining loggia are particular features. There is also a paddock of about 3 acres located to the south.
Services: The property is connected to mains water, mains electricity and mains drainage. The heating is oil fired with some additional electric night storage heating on the top floor and in the Old Hall.
Right of way: There is a right of way, in favour of The Manor, over the old drive, west of the house with direct access onto the main road either side of the original lodge cottages.

A country house in the heart of a village. I love the view from the front door across the lawn and to the fields beyond. This and the short walk to the village pub. Best of both worlds!Charles Elsmore-Wickens
