Edge of the village setting
This handsome period house sits on the edge of the village with excellent southerly views over the adjoining countryside. The main part of the house is believed to date from the Georgian period, with later Victorian alterations. As such the property is beautifully proportioned with high ceilings and large sash windows which flood the rooms with light. The accommodation is well-balanced and ideal for modern family living. The drawing room and dining room are perfect for formal entertaining and have a lovely outlook over the gardens. The kitchen/breakfast room is equipped with a 4-oven Aga with electric companion to one side and a huge island unit. Beyond is a good sized utility room and separate boot room. There is a useful cellar with good ceiling heights and natural light. It is currently used as a gym.
There are four bedrooms and three bathrooms on the first floor. The master suite is particularly impressive, with an ensuite dressing room and a large bathroom. There are two further bedrooms on the second floor with a box room between which would make a further bathroom.
Oaksey Court is not Listed.
This property has 5.2 acres of land.
Oaksey Court has a discreet entrance from the village with wooden electric gates opening onto a large graveled parking area to the front of the house. Adjoining this is a range of period outbuildings comprising a workshop, cartshed, tack room and two stables with potential for conversion to alternative uses subject to planning. There is a separate garage with a loft store over.
The gardens and grounds are delightful. Lying mainly to the south of the house, they have been beautifully planted and maintained. There is a raised pond in the shape of a quatrefoil, set in a paved surround with mixed herbaceous borders, and a further pond on the west side of house, overlooked from the drawing room. Beyond are wide lawns and a paved sitting out area. A hard tennis court is discreetly situated to the east. Wrapping around two sides of the garden is a useful paddock, ideal for ponies, with a separate vehicular access to the road.
