A characterful Grade II listed house set in substantial gardens in a sought after village location

Location

Sutton Courtenay is a pretty and historic village set on the south bank of the River Thames, with many of the houses dating back to the 16th century. The village has a vibrant community and offers a number of amenities including the Sutton Courtenay C of E Primary School, the church of All Saints, a post office, general store and four public houses, including the popular pub-restaurant The Fish. The green is a focal point of the village, with many fine period houses such as the Grade II* listed Manor House, The Abbey and the Norman Hall.

The village is well placed for communications. The A34 provides dual-carriageway access to both the M40 and the M4. Didcot Parkway station is approximately 3 miles away and operates a 40 minute intercity service to London Paddington. The nearby towns of Abingdon and Didcot cater for day-to-day shopping requirements. Oxford offers extensive shopping facilities and other recreations, including theatre, cinemas and a very good range of restaurants.

Abingdon and Oxford provide an array of well regarded schools, such as Cothill House and Chandlings Manor, Abingdon Prep, St Hugh's School, The School of St. Helen and St Katharine, Our Lady's Convent Senior School, Abingdon School, Headington School, Oxford High School, The Dragon and Radley College.

Description

Dating from the early 16th century with later additions, Courtyard House is a most attractive Grade II listed property with timber framing. Originally thought to have been a double-ended hall house, it is now a delightful family home with substantial gardens and has been much improved by the current owners during their tenure.

Leading immediately off the entrance hall are the principal reception rooms of Courtyard House. The drawing room has an open fireplace, central chamfered beam and a dual aspect, providing a view of the formal pond situated in the courtyard. Adjacent to the drawing room is a small library/studio with tiled floor, exposed beams and door leading directly to the central courtyard. At the north-eastern end of the house is the dining room with exposed beams and access to the kitchen beyond. The spacious kitchen/breakfast room is located at the centre of the house and has fitted units, exposed beams and a large inglenook fireplace. An interconnecting hallway leads to a utility room, shower room and study. Set at the far end of the house is the south-east facing garden room. This is a contemporary addition to the property, with a log-burning stove and exposed timbers that reflect the older parts of the house. Double French doors open onto a paved seating area beneath a vine covered pergola.

On the first floor there are 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The master bedroom suite is particularly attractive with an adjoining dressing room and views of the courtyard.

Outside:
The property is approached via wrought iron gates that open onto a secluded courtyard with a formal pond that provides a central focal point for many of the rooms at Courtyard House. A gravel turning area provides parking for several cars and there is also a double garage with adjoining workshop.

The gardens to the rear of the property are predominantly laid to lawn with mixed borders and a variety of mature shrubs and trees. There is an abundance of established roses, all of old varieties, and a summer house that provides a sheltered vantage point from which to enjoy the gardens. Set behind a high hedge and separated from the main garden is the kitchen garden.

Services:
Mains electricity, gas, water and drainage are connected. Gas-fired central heating.

Square Footage: 2,990 sq ft
Acreage: 0.4 Acres
