Elegant Edwardian family house in one of South Oxfordshire's best villages.

Little Barton is an imposing attached family house dating from the Edwardian era, and therefore boasts handsome period features and elegantly proportioned rooms offering exceptional ceiling heights. The dining room and drawing rooms both exceed 22 ft in length and overlook the wonderful gardens. The large and spectacular conservatory, which is over 18 ft in length, and is accessed from both the kitchen and drawing room, is an ideal place to relax all year round, as it is filled with natural light and provides direct access to the terrace and then onto the garden. The general layout of the ground floor is ideally suited for those who enjoy entertaining. The attractive kitchen/breakfast room is light and airy with a number of fitted units and a central island and range cooker. The kitchen leads to a delightful sitting room with bespoke backlit shelving and cupboard unit, and a woodburning stove. To the side of the kitchen is a good sized utility room. The house is painted throughout in light, restful tones which also serves to highlight some of the period features which include leaded windows, handsome wooden panelling in the dining room and delightful feature windows and open fireplaces. Of partcular note is the large and very striking Arts & Crafts Inglenook fireplace in the drawing room, complete with feature windows at the back, through which the interior of the adjacent conservatory can be seen. The large bay window also features a delightful window seat through which attractive garden views can be enjoyed.

To the first floor the large principal bedroom overlooks the garden and has a delightful bay window and fitted wardrobes. There are three further bedrooms, all of which are doubles and have fitted wardrobes, whilst two of them benefit from en suite facilities. In addition there is a family bathroom with separate shower.

This property has 0.73 acres of land.

Outside

The beautiful gardens are a particular feature of Little Barton. There is a very large lawned area, bordered by a large number of magnificent and mature specimen trees as well as several very colourful flower borders planted with a wide variety of plants and shrubs. A large terrace to the front makes an ideal place to dine or relax in the warmer months, whilst a set of steps leads down onto the lawn. The other side of the house has a large gravelled area for parking and would accommodate a number of vehicles. The house also benefits from a double garage. There is a first floor area above the garage, which is currently used for storage and could be converted to an annexe, subject to to the usual consents.
