Wightwick was originally built in 1928 and more recently extended to provide a substantial family house providing well-proportioned and versatile accommodation, and a Victorian gothic style "tower annexe". The ground floor leads from an entrance hall into two separate reception rooms with bay windows that look out onto the gardens. There is a kitchen/breakfast room, cloakroom, and utility room, and a downstairs bathroom with a separate spiral staircase ascending into the tower which provides access to three good sized bedrooms and links with the main body of the house. The first floor comprises five bedrooms and a family bathroom. The top floor is accessed via the spiral staircase where there are two linked bedrooms. The grounds are private and a particularly attractive feature of the property. There is a hard standing area to the front with garage and steps leading down to the front patio/courtyard garden. The gardens are laid out on two sides and to the rear. To one side is an extensive paved patio area with large area of lawn, trees, hedging, flowers and shrubs surrounding. The other side is a paved area. Both patio areas lead to the gardens to the rear which are laid to lawn, interspersed with numerous trees, flowers and shrubs. There are steps at the end of the lawn leading to a number of ponds laid out on three levels, beyond which is a further area of garden which is wooded with a wooden summerhouse in a small paddock.

The property lies within the favoured residential area of Boars Hill, which is situated some four miles south west of Oxford city centre, and three miles from Abingdon centre. The private schools of Abingdon and Oxford are all within the local vicinity, with good access also to the European School in Culham. The nearby A34 provides easy access to the M40 and M4. Didcot main line station, providing fast Intercity train service to London Paddington, is approximately thirteen miles south via the A34, with a journey time to London of about forty five minutes.
