Boars Hill is a sought after residential green belt area about 4 miles south west of the City of Oxford. In an elevated position above the Vale of the White Horse, it enjoys wonderful walks and some of the best views of the city and its spires. The neighbouring village of Wootton has a parish church, public house, two village shops and primary school, with more comprehensive facilities found in Abingdon or Oxford, which also offers extensive recreational and internationally renowned cultural facilities.

Boars Hill is also well located for an excellent range of state and independent schools for all ages. School buses for many Oxford and Abingdon schools run from the top of the lane. Other independent schools such as Cothill, Chandlings and The Manor are nearby.

The nearby arterial route of the A34 gives access to the M4 (J13) to the south and the M40 (J8) to the north. Regular train services run either from Oxford (London Paddington about 50 minutes), or Oxford Parkway (London Marylebone, about 56 minutes).


Linden House is situated in a truly enviable position, on a private, no through lane and bordered by woodland, it is set back off the lane and sits centrally on its plot in mature landscaped gardens.

Believed to date to the mid 1920's and reflecting the late Arts and Crafts period, Linden House is architecturally intriguing. Not listed, the property is constructed of rendered brick below a tiled roof and period features include a steep pitched roof with dormer windows, bay windows and panelled internal doors.
Having been enjoyed by the current owners for over twenty years, who have recently extended and improved the property, the accommodation lends itself perfectly to entertaining and family living.

The entrance hall leads to an inner hall and four separate reception rooms. The impressive formal dining and drawing rooms both have feature bay windows and fire places and overlook the gardens. There is also a family/TV room and a study with wood burner. The large kitchen breakfast room, with 4 door gas fired Aga, is open plan to a bright garden room with atrium ceiling and there is also a utility room and temperature controlled wine store. On the first floor, the principal bedroom enjoys views from a wide bay window and has a large en suite bathroom with separate shower and dressing area. There are five further bedrooms and three further bath/shower rooms.

Entered through electric wrought iron gates, a private drive leads to ample off road parking. There is a large garage detached garage which offers scope for conversion to annexe accommodation (subject to relevant consents). A further single garage is used for garden machinery and wood storage.
South facing terraces are accessed from the drawing room and west facing terraces from the garden room. The mature landscaped gardens are divided into different areas with a tennis court, orchard area, lawns and herbaceous borders. Set away from the house is the heated swimming pool which is part walled with a BBQ area and with a smart recently built pool house, with shower and kitchenette area, it is perfect for outdoor entertaining.

Agent's notes:1) adjoining, (approx 5 acres) is jointly owned with Residents in the lane and is preserved as a natural woodland for wildlife. 2) Linden Lane is private and residents contribute to upkeep. Contact selling agents for further information.
