Full description

1/3 acre plot with the most immaculate, high-tech and high spec house we have seen in a long while, on a private lane next to fields. From "magic eye" central electronic control to 4 bedrooms, full under-floor heating to electronically-gated driveway and a double garage, it's quite wonderful.

A must-view in every sense of the words! Modernity in every sense, but with a great deal of style and massive thought evident in every aspect of the design.

Bladon is an ancient village which has gradually grown over the years not least due to its links to Blenheim Palace, the related sawmills and farmland. Many of the properties are stone-built and dating back several hundred years, ensuring the village has much charm and feels unspoilt. The village itself contains a good pub, an eleventh century church (where many of the Spencer-Churchill family are buried, most famously Winston Churchill) and a tea room, and a wider range of amenities are available within a few miles in Woodstock and Long Hanborough. The school catchments are excellent, road and rail access also very good (Long Hanborough station goes to Paddington), and the village is surrounded by delightful farmland.

West View is a remarkable house. Originally a "standard" bungalow, what you see today bears no resemblance to what came before. Rarely does anyone create such a stand-out, high-tech home this stylish and comfortable. From the wide bi-fold doors opening onto the garden and terrace on two sides, to the centrally-controlled electronic systems, this is a house for those who want to be pampered! This includes a TV in the bathroom wall that has a heated screen to stop it steaming up... The location is also ideal, quiet and discreet down an idyllic lane, but with immediately adjacent road and rail access points to everything.

Entering the house the first impression is "wow". Beautiful polished tiles that run the entire way through the house stretch away ahead of you, and light seems to come from everywhere. Ahead the glazed double doors are oak and they open into the most wonderful living space. At 28 ft by 20 with a vaulted ceiling this room is palatial, and with glazing everywhere it benefits from the most delightful natural light. Bi-fold doors to the rear and right really ensure the garden and terrace are a part of everyday living. The space naturally acts as three different areas. To the rear the wide space allows for the most generous of seating. On the left in the wall is a small infra-red receiver point, and this is connected to every system in the house. Hence heating, lighting, your chosen TV and the inset speakers (which are connected throughout the house) can all be controlled via one remote! This system is rare in a house at this price range, and for ease of use there is nothing better. Adjacent to this area the vendors have easily placed a large table with eight chairs but there is room for more. And next to this the kitchen island includes a sink with "kettle" tap, and also in this long unit is a dishwasher. Behind it the whole wall is fitted with a vast range of storage units. In the centre the stainless steel fittings include a coffee machine, oven and steamer, plus microwave. And as if this wasn't comprehensive enough, through the side door is a fully equipped utility room which houses both the pressurised hot water system and the connections for the audio/ visual systems.

At the other end of the house there are four bedrooms. All operate admirably as doubles, but in particular the master includes both a huge range of storage units and also a large shower. Across the hall two further bedrooms are both light, airy and well proportioned. The fourth, at over 8 feet square, would be an ideal study or a great guest/ child's space. Serving all four is a wonderful bathroom with both a shower and bath - not to mention the TV - and there's also a cloak room.

Outside is equally thoughtfully presented. The front driveway is securely enclosed by remote-controlled timber electric gates, leading into an area with more than enough room for five or six cars. There is a pretty lawn in front of the house, and to the rear of the driveway an open car barn is both large and stylish, built of timber with rooms for two large vehicles. Behind this the terrace wraps round three sides of the house providing various lovely seating areas. But beyond this the real treat is the lawn. With an apple tree to one side and a dead straight run of lawn it is so attractive and peaceful. The whole is enclosed by secure fencing and there is also a hedge to the left. It all adds up to a wonderful garden space that is attractive, roomy and completely private.
