With far reaching views of open countryside, this substantial and much loved family home (built circa 1928) is on the market for the first time in over 35 years. Sitting centrally within well stocked gardens of about half an acre, the house has been tastefully extended and updated over the years to provide well proportioned and well laid-out accommodation, including an open plan kitchen, dining and sitting area flooded with natural light and overlooking the south-west facing garden and fields beyond.

In addition to 5 bedrooms and 3 reception rooms, there is a separate spacious studio flat above the double garage with its own kitchen and bathroom facilities, it provides flexible secondary accommodation. The high-speed fibre optic broadband (1000mb/sec) enables the current owners to run their consulting business from home.

Planning permission (Reference P13/V1772/HH) dated 23rd October 2013 was granted for a first floor extension to provide a new master bedroom suite with an additional en-suite bathroom.

The lure of the countryside combined with the close proximity of Oxford city centre, transport links and renowned local schools has long made Boars Hill a desirable community, rich in history, and with plenty of beautiful walks which have inspired many famous poets.


Boars Hill is a sought after residential area, famous for its wooded rural setting, just 4 miles from the centre of the city of Oxford, with its wide range of schools, services and cultural amenities.

Boars Hill is well served by communications with excellent access to the A34 and national motorway network. Within easy reach are the regional centres of Newbury and Swindon.
Communications by rail are excellent with fast trains from either Oxford and Didcot Parkway to London Paddington, taking about 50 and 40 minutes respectively or from the new Oxford Parkway station to London Marylebone.

Sporting and leisure facilities include the Nuffield Health Gym in Oxford, golf at Frilford Heath and water sports at Farmoor Reservoir. Surrounding picturesque country side includes the Chiltern Hills providing inspiring scenery and wonderful walking. There is horse livery available on Boars Hill with bridleways across the neighbouring open countryside.
