Many try, few succeed. This is a rare example of a historic Woodstock house successfully integrating charm and history with modern fittings.
Woodstock is a thriving town just to the north of Oxford which grew up as a coach stop on the road north, then around the Royal Hunting Lodge which became the site of the magnificent Blenheim Palace, home of the Dukes of Marlborough since the early 1700s. The town is now a World Heritage site, and attracts visitors from all over the globe. Central Woodstock offers an amazing diversity of cosmopolitan amenities with high quality restaurants, pubs, boutiques and antique shops all available. There is a Woodstock Under Fives Association (WUFA), which provides a lovely playgroup for children aged 3 to 5, schooling from 5 to 18 plus a regular bus service to Oxford and local market towns of Chipping Norton and Witney.
Number 92 is a gorgeous double fronted example of an 18th century house. Our client bought it in need of considerable work and has gone through the house from top to bottom, renovating and improving to ensure it works in a modern context but doesn't lose its character. It's surprisingly practical, with plenty of useable space and really good natural light. The garden is stepped to provide seating areas, storage and a lawn. There's even a parking space to the side. And the view to the rear is wonderful. Despite its position on the road, this intrudes little once you are in either the house or the garden.
An inner porch provides entrance to a large, full-width living room with an attractive oak floor. Two secondary glazed windows to the front ensure it is light and well insulated. The space provides an ample seating area at one end and dining space at the other. To the rear the double aspect dining room is an elegant room and perfectly proportioned for a large table and chairs. Across the hall the utility/ boot room is another surprisingly large space, catering for ample storage as well as washing machines etc. Finally downstairs to the rear the kitchen is extended and extremely attractive. A light tiled floor and vaulted ceiling with roof light windows ensures this room is light and positive in any weather. A range of units to three sides is topped by a traditional wooden work top. At the rear the butler sink is placed in front of a window that looks out across the Glyme valley. The cooker is a high spec item matching the quality of the rest of the kitchen. In all it matches the character of the house perfectly.
Upstairs on the first floor a spacious double bedroom provides excellent space for the largest of furnishings, with an alcove perfect for a wardrobe. Behind it the en-suite is set up with two doors, a clever feature allowing it also to be used as a general bathroom - although with two further en-suites there is little need. Fit and finish is excellent, including a large roll top type bath to one side and a shower the other, with plenty of space between. The floor is Karndean, an ideal material as it is attractive in the same way as wood but does not degrade. The overall feel is of timeless quality. In addition, from the bath there is the most wonderful view through the rear window. Two further bedrooms on this floor are light and very pleasant, with one including another en-suite shower room that is fitted to a high standard.
On the top floor, the signature room to our minds is the larger bedroom. Double aspect, with a small dormer window to the front, and including exposed roof timbers, it oozes the history of the house with a wonderful patina. But it's also a large room which any would find practical, able to house a double bed and suite of furniture with ease. Adjacent to it the last of the five bedrooms is also a double, more compact but including both storage and a lovely en-suite with traditional fittings.
To the rear the garden has been cleverly designed to provide a large terrace across the upper part around the kitchen, taking greatest advantage of the view and sunlight. Steps gently lead past some established plant borders to a lawn that is ideal for summer barbecues and securely enclosed for children or animals. There's also a large shed to the side perfect for garden furniture, mowers etc. At the front of the house the parking off street is a rare and valuable asset. Paved for ease of use it is large enough for a family car, and the fence behind also has a gate leading through to the garden.
