Location

Langford is an attractive rural village situated between the market towns of Burford and Lechlade on the border of Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire. The village, which is recorded in the Doomsday Book 1086, is comprised mainly of Cotswold stone properties surrounded by open farmland.

The village hosts a public house (The Bell Inn) and primary school whilst Filkins, 1.5 miles distant, supports a church, village hall, open air swimming pool, post office and an award winning pub (The Five Alls). A more comprehensive range of facilities can be found in nearby Burford, Lechlade and Witney and the regional centres of Oxford, Swindon and Cheltenham.

The village is also well placed for access to the M4 (Junction 15) and the M40 (Junction 8) and there are regular train services to London Paddington from both Charlbury and Swindon. Local recreational amenities include boating on the River Thames, sailing at the Cotswold Water Park, golf at Burford, polo at Cirencester Park and theatres at both Cheltenham and Oxford.

Description

Believed to date from the mid to late 17th century Dunford House is a handsome Grade II listed village house built from uncoursed limestone rubble under a stone slate roof. Situated in the centre of the village, overlooking the war memorial, the flexible family accommodation is arranged over two floors with additional gable-lit attic space.

On the ground floor are 3 principal reception rooms. To the left of the entrance hall is the charming sitting room with window seats, shutters and wood burning stove. A door leads through to the triple aspect drawing room, with views over the garden, and a further window seat and wood burning stove.

Turning right from the entrance hall leads to an additional spacious reception room currently used as a dining room. From here a step leads to the secondary staircase, utility room, cloakroom and kitchen/breakfast room which houses a four oven Aga.

From the entrance hall a panelled staircase leads to the first floor with four double bedrooms, one single bedroom, two bathrooms, a shower room and WC.

A further staircase leads to two attic rooms and additional storage area. The property would benefit from updating throughout.

Dunford House Barn, which was converted in 1984, offers comfortable accommodation over two floors ideal for a dependent relative or as a source of income from holiday or long term lets.

Accommodation on the ground floor comprises entrance hall with stone floor, a light and airy sitting room with exposed stonework and wood burning stove, cloakroom, utility room and kitchen/breakfast room with Aga and internal access to the garage.

On the first floor the master bedroom is served by an en suite bathroom and dressing area (currently used as a study). There are two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Outside the property benefits from mature walled gardens which enjoy a westerly aspect and comprise a patio to the rear of the main house and a lawn leading to an orchard area and vegetable garden. The driveway, entered through double gates, leads to the carport and turning area.

Square Footage: 3,617 sq ft
