DESCRIPTION Dating from the mid/late 18th century, South Elms is a most attractive Grade II Listed house with much charm and character throughout. The main part of the house was originally a school in conjunction with the adjoining house, The Elms, which is mentioned in Pevsner's 'The Buildings of Oxfordshire'.
Arranged over two floors, the flexible accommodation has many period features throughout. Of particular note is the drawing room. Believed to originally have been the school's main hall, it is a particularly elegant and spacious room with fireplace, high ceilings and deep sash windows with seats. The remainder of the ground floor comprises a small entrance hall with attractive stained glass window, utility room and a fitted kitchen with Aga, which enjoys an outlook over the courtyard garden. From the kitchen, providing an attractive dining area opening to the courtyard garden, the conservatory links the house to a ground floor en-suite bedroom which forms what is known as the chapel. Providing a charming self-contained area, the bedroom enjoys a fireplace with wood burning stove, vaulted ceiling and attractive stone mullioned gothic style windows. At first floor level are two double bedrooms and the family bathroom.
The property is approached through a door opening to the courtyard garden which leads to the front door and provides a sheltered and secluded area.
DIRECTIONS From the market place in the centre of Bampton take the right hand turn towards Witney. South Elms will be found on the right hand side just after the left hand turn to Church View and before the turning into New Road on the right.
