A striking and delightful detached family home, previously occupied circa 1904 by an eminent Professor whilst at Oxford University. The house offers a tremendous amount of original character and is set in delightful formal gardens, orchard, kitchen garden and woodland of just under 10 acres in total. On the ground floor there are three reception rooms including an elegant 31ft sitting room with triple French doors to the rear, there is a formal dining room and a study with a working fireplace. The kitchen/breakfast room has pine cabinets, woodburner and an adjacent utility room and to the side is a second wc and hallway/boot room. On the first floor there are five bedrooms and a large bathroom. Externally there are a vast array of outbuildings including a triple garage block with workshop and storeroom together with a separate single garage and carport.
We would advise a full walk through of the garden and woodland as these form a major attraction, there are formal gardens around the house with a large lawn, terrace, vegetable garden and orchard. The large area of woodland is managed to provide logs for the Biomass central heating boiler and indoor stoves.
Situated on the edge of the village of Kennington between the village and Boars Hill, there are everyday amenities within the village including a supermarket, surgery, primary school and public house. The local area features Bagley Wood an ancient woodland owned by St Johns College Oxford. Lying approximately 4.5 miles south west of Oxford and its mainline railway station to London. The property is also very well positioned for further communications to London and the national motorway network. The Thames side market town of Abingdon is just 5 miles away with popular independent schools of Abingdon School and St Helen?s and St Katharine?s.
