Full description

A handsome 5 bedroom period property, Listed Grade II*, set in secluded and mature gardens, including a separate pool house, in the heart of this pretty and popular village.

Lime Tree House has origins dating back to around 1200 and was originally a Tithe Barn before being remodeled to a house in around 1580, the country’s first barn conversion? The house has been added to and changed over the centuries with a significant rebuild in the mid Victorian Period after the Fire of Harwell, which gives the property its distinctive three gabled front façade with deep sash windows to the ground floor.  

Lime Tree House now offers beautifully proportioned family accommodation with high ceilings to the principle reception rooms, and a mixture of period features with some lovely exposed timbers and an impressive fireplace to the drawing room, a wonderful flagstone floor to the hall and a 17th century Dovecote in the gable above bedroom 3.  All this is blended with later features from the Victorian period with large shuttered Sash windows to the front elevation and an elegant Victorian staircase.  

The present owners have been at Lime Tree House since the 1970’s and have added to and altered the property over the years.  A large sunny family room has been created at the rear of the house and a detached double garage has been added to the side of the property.  In addition a substantial brick pool house was built to the end of the garden with a heated in ground pool and sauna.
