A wonderful family home in its own glorious private setting

Robin Wood is a stunning arts and crafts style property located in the prestigious location of Boars Hill. Set within it's own private manicured gardens, the house welcomes guests through a long gravelled driveway, with a large area for parking at the front of the property. The ground floor features a large family living room with central fireplace, exposed timber beams, as well as direct access onto a charming conservatory with lovely views over the garden. The living room also accesses the formal dining room, continuing the exposed beam theme, and original windows. The dining room flows seamlessly through to a large kitchen featuring a central island, a number of built in units, and windows overlooking the front garden and down the driveway. The ground floor also features a downstairs shower room, understairs cupboard, utility, snug sitting room, as well as a pool room, workshop and large double garage. On the first floor, there are four double bedrooms, all benefitting from lovely views over the gardens and property. The master bedroom benefits from it's own en suite bathroom. The guest bedroom features a concealed basin and the room leads onto a large walk-in linen cupboard. The other bedrooms currently share the family bathroom which completes the first floor.

This property has 0.68 acres of land.

Outside

To the front of the property, the impressive driveway is flanked by garden which is predominantly laid to lawn, but punctuated by a mixture of mature fruit trees, and established hedgerows and shrub borders. At the rear of the property, there is a large lawned area, with magnificent trees at the far boundary, a mixture of deciduous and evergreen trees providing an attractive focal point, and year round colour. There are a number of flower and shrub beds filled with a great many different types of roses and plants, providing a riot of colour and fragrance, perfect for the discerning gardener. To add a sense of fun and excitement to the outside space, there is a good sized swimming pool with an area of stone tiles around the outside for seating and relaxation.. The terrace wraps around the rear of the property.

For day to day shopping, there is a Waitrose in Abingdon, and a Sainsbury's in nearby Heyford Hill. There are a number of local shops in Wootton Village. Boars Hill is extremely well positioned for access to London, with regular services operating out of Oxford Parkway and Didcot Parkway, taking you into Marylebone or Paddington.
