  • Bedrooms: 4
A proud and handsome detached house, standing in two acres, located in a rural location in the Vale of White Horse enjoying fine views over the Ridgeway and the White Horse itself.

Dating from about 1957 with later additions, this welcoming family residence offers warm and comfortable accommodation with a high level of quality and tasteful fittings throughout. Designed and orientated to take maximum advantage of natural sunlight one can't help notice the feeling of light and space throughout the house. The living accommodation of around 3500 sq ft is complemented and balanced by glorious manicured gardens, including a hard tennis court, which adjoin open countryside. The property has been in the same ownership for 35 years and only the desire to downsize brings it to the market.

The ground floor comprises: entrance hall with oak staircase off; cloakroom/wc; sitting room with splay bay window; drawing room with stone fireplace and Stovax woodburner; Amdega conservatory; dining room with large stone mullioned bay window; study; farmhouse style social kitchen with gas Aga; larder; utility room and further wc.

First floor: spacious landing; two substantial bedroom suites with exceptional en-suite bath/shower/dressing room facilities; two further double bedrooms; family bathroom.

Outside, the property is entered via electric gates with a sweeping gravelled drive providing generous parking. The exceptional gardens need to be seen to be fully appreciated. Keen gardeners will admire the areas of lawn, mature trees, fine selection of shrubs, fruit trees, ornamental pond, paved and gravelled areas. A fenced hard tennis court completes the picture. There is a double garage with two office/work rooms over, and a separate outbuilding housing two workshop rooms and single garage.
