Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Oriel House is an impressive Grade II listed, Victorian Gothic Revival style property of architectural interest and great character. Built in 1866 and situated in one of Witney's most sought after locations overlooking Church Green, it features a semi-circular oriel window with an angel carved in corbel over the entrance from which the house takes its name. Now in need of refurbishment, the house offers a wonderful opportunity to create a highly desirable, elegant home in a prime location in the heart of this historic market town.

The accommodation is arranged on two floors with a sizeable attic above having access from the landing. There would be the potential for providing further accommodation by converting the attic area, subject to planning consent. The property has many original features including high ceilings with decorative plaster mouldings, Victorian wood shutters and stunning, well-proportioned principal rooms on the ground floor. The main accommodation is configured in a traditional way and a large conservatory has been added.
To the rear of the house there is a good sized, enclosed garden which is west facing and 100ft in length.

The main accommodation can be seen on the floor plan.

Church Green is arguably the most attractive location within this appealing market town, famed for its historic wool trade and blanket making. The Green is surrounded by mainly period properties which over-look it, the Market Square and shopping area is to the northern end and the magnificent 13th century church of St Mary the Virgin is to the south, together with Henry Box School, which was founded in 1660.

Witney is a vibrant market town with excellent amenities and a thriving local community with confirmed origins dating back to at least AD 969. The town is home to 27,000 residents and is the largest town in West Oxfordshire. Within Witney itself there is a wide range of independent shops restaurants and boutiques, as well as a number of more notable larger stores including Waitrose, Marks and Spencers and Waterstones to name but a few. The recently added Marriotts Walk provides the community with an impressive cinema, entertainment and retail complex.
Witney also benefits from fantastic local educational facilities including the aforementioned Henry Box School, Cokethorpe and St Hughs, but also benefits from access to the other excellent Oxfordshire schools including The Dragon School, St Edwards, and MCS. There are good transport links to nearby Oxford with regular bus routes operating 24 hours a day, as well as excellent rail links to London via either Hanborough Station which takes you into Paddington, or the newly opened Oxford Parkway which takes youinto Marylebone.
