Wychwoods Estate Agents present a rare opportunity to purchase a rural, substantial 5 bedroom dwelling sitting in private grounds of approximately 1.1acres.

With accommodation in the region of 3000 square feet, this impressive family home offers spacious and flexible living all on one level and flows into the extensive well maintained garden with panoramic views beyond the hedgerow.

Whitethorn has vast potential; from renovation to extension (adding a first floor), right through to using the generous plot for an exclusive and individual, replacement house with scope for a pool or tennis court, (all subject to planning).

The well maintained garden has, among many features, a lovely pergola seating area covered with vines and an outside fire and barbeque, perfect for relaxing evenings and social gatherings.

The accommodation is spread out across one floor and comprises: entrance hall, kitchen/breakfast room with double doors onto a patio seating area, large dining room and a good sized drawing room with an open fire and views onto the garden. There is a shower room and a utility room. From the double aspect south facing drawing room there is access to the well positioned and good sized conservatory.

There are five double bedrooms, two of which have been combined offering considerable flexibility, together with a generous family bathroom.

As well as being in a secluded location, Whitethorn sits in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with open countryisde surrounding the property including the adjoining Site of Special Scientific Interest. The property is situtated in a no through road and yet is still within walking distance of the charming town of Charlbury which has a number of lovely shops and pubs.

Area Description - Charlbury is a small market town lying on the edge of the ancient Royal Hunting Forest of Wychwood. This thriving community benefits from a mainline train station, post office, shops, primary school, active organisations and societies; there is even a museum. The town is surrounded by the breath-taking estates of Cornbury Park, Ditchley Park and Blenheim.

More extensive facilities can be found a few miles away at the nearby market town of Witney and the pretty Cotswold towns of Burford & Chipping Norton. There is easy road access to Oxford, London and the north, and Paddington via rail, with both Charlbury station and Oxford Parkway being readily accessible.

The property is situated next to the Ditchely Road Quarry which is a Site of Special Scientific Interest. The quarry has been home to important geological finds as well as being a haven to wildlife.
