Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Highwood House is an elegant detached family home in an enviable position over looking a paddock in front and enclosed gardens behind.

Built of stone under a Cotswold stone roof, the house has been sympathetically extended and improved over recent years. The house is not listed and there has been no expense spared with regards the finest sash windows throughout the house providing light and spacious entertaining areas. The EPC rating of B is testament to the quality of workmanship throughout the house during the current owners tenure. The main reception rooms are well-proportioned with plenty of period features including the bay window in the dining room and the log burner in the welcoming reception hall. Towards the back of the house there is a large kitchen/ breakfast room with multiple wall and base units under granite worktops plus french doors leading out to a large sun terrace in the garden.

The overall accommodation is incredibly versatile and dynamic with four bedrooms and two bathrooms on the first floor and the fifth bedroom with en suite bathroom on the ground floor which is ideal for a dependant relative, however, has recently been used as an additional home office for home schooling. There is also a mezzanine in one bedroom which is currently used as a play area.

To the front of the house, there is parking for several cars and a double garage. To the rear, a large enclosed garden flanked by herbaceous borders and mature trees. Whilst mostly laid to lawn, the garden is studded with a mixture of shrubs.

Situated on a no-through lane with only two properties beyond, Highwood House enjoys a magical position within a thriving village. Buckland is a desirable and picturesque village approximately 14 miles south west of Oxford. Amenities include the parish church, The Lamb public house and restaurant, and the primary school. The market towns of Faringdon, Abingdon, Witney and Wantage are handy for everyday requirements, and Buckland is well located for the wide range of schools in the area, including Buckland primary school and nearby St Hughs.

Communication is good, with intercity trains from Didcot (London/Paddington), and both the A40/M40 and M4 motorways are conveniently accessible via the A34, and there is a local bus service into Oxford from the A420. For those wishing to enjoy the immediate surroundings, there are glorious countryside walks to enjoy from the doorstep.
