An enviable setting
Lowick is a substantial, well presented five double bedroom detached house built in 1995 of stone with a slate roof, located towards the end of Lincombe Lane, up a gravel driveway and in 1.3 acres of lawns, shrubs and trees. Barely 4 miles from Oxford this private lane is possibly the nicest and most peaceful on Boars Hill. There is a real sense of community here; but seclusion and privacy too.
Residents collectively own the lane as well as 4 acres of mixed woodland as an open wildlife sanctuary.
The property itself has considerable charm and faces due south overlooking the garden. It is exceptionally light and spacious with over 5,500 square feet of floor space. You have to see inside the get the sense of space and feeling of a proper family home. The house is double glazed with gas fired central heating.
Key features include the open plan kitchen with an Aga and natural travertine floor, and two adjoining reception rooms, which lend themselves to entertaining. There is a large entrance hallway, a wonderful drawing room with an open fireplace and double doors to the garden, as well as a garden room and dining area: all the rooms are well proportioned. The house has been cleverly designed to make the best use of the views of the garden and natural light. Upstairs are five large double bedrooms plus three bath/shower rooms, all fitted with white suites.
A strikingly flexible part of the property is a self-contained ground floor annexe - as spacious and light as the main property itself, which can be used as part of the main house, or as currently rented out.. Equally it could be used as alternative accommodation for friends, relatives or as a granny annexe.
Outside is room to park and turn half a dozen cars, and a large double garage with a big studio room above which has plenty of uses.
