Tastefully refurbished period property


'Somerton is an attractive village set in popular and rural north Oxfordshire, in the heart of the Cherwell Valley, between Oxford and Banbury, with countryside walks


The Old Inn is an impressive family residence occupying a good size, elevated plot within this popular North Oxfordshire village.
Having been sympathetically renovated throughout by its current owners, the property is now a tasteful blend of both period and contemporary features and materials with all the modern day conveniences you might expect including, under floor heating, CAT 6 wiring, Bang & Olufsen integrated entertainment cabling and satellite TV and radio distribution systems in all bedrooms and reception rooms.
A generous reception hall provides access to all ground floor accommodation; stairs to the far left ascend to the first floor and steps to the right lead into a comfortable sitting room where a Charnwood muiltifuel burning stove rests on a glass hearth and a full length window offers a view over the gardens.
The double length drawing room has a fireplace at either end with a second Charnwood mulitifuel burning stove on a stone hearth and two sets of French doors which open on to the gardens.
The hub of the house is undoubtedly the wonderful kitchen/breakfast room that has double bi-fold doors that open onto the gardens and paved seating area, Bassano brushed limestone flooring and a Cotteswood bespoke black American walnut kitchen. A double electric Aga sits centrally below a bespoke stainless steel Westin cooker hood with a simple geometric Fired Earth tile which compliments the rich flooring. A single piece of corian tops a large central island with fitted appliances below which include double Fisher & Paykel DishDrawer, a Neff multi oven and Caple stainless steel wine cooler. A double larder cupboard provides ample storage for dry goods and there is also space for an American style fridge/freezer.
Steps up from the kitchen lead into a triple aspect formal dining room which is also laid with brushed limestone flooring with a bespoke Paladin cast iron radiator preferred to under floor heating. An oak staircase descends from here into the boiler room/utility room which has direct access to the front of the property.
To the first floor and accessed from the gallery landing is the master suite with dressing area and contemporary en suite wet room with double vanity cabinet. The vaulted bedroom has exposed 'A' frame timbers and features a single door opening onto stone steps which lead to the garden.
The property boasts four further bedrooms, two of which are located on the first floor and are served by a central shower room fitted with a double Limestone shower tray and tiling. Two further vaulted bedrooms are located on the second floor of the property and have access to a shower room with double shower tray and Fired Earth tiling.
Approached over a gated gravel driveway, a pedestrian gate opens onto a paved pathway which extends into a deep seating area accessible from the kitchen. Front and rear borders have been planted with a variety of plants and shrubs including tranquillity & burgundy iceberg roses, alliums & tulips to provide year round interest. Young yew hedging will develop to clearly define the parking and garden areas whilst evergreen oak trees denote the boundaries. There is a section of formal lawn as well as a stream lined with water loving plants which gently meanders along Water Street and collects in a pretty shallow pool.
An area of gated hard standing has been created to store garden machinery as well as providing access to the oil tank.
