Property description

Tenure: Freehold

A substantial five bedroom Listed Grade II* period property, set in a spacious secluded garden which has been well maintained and includes a separate pool house, in the heart of this pretty and sought after village of Harwell. Lime Tree House has origins dating back to around 1200 and was originally a tithe barn before being remodelled to a house in around 1580 and is one of the country’s first barn conversions. The house has been added to and changed over the centuries with significant rebuild in the Regency period, which gave the property its distinctive three gabled front façade with deep sash windows to the ground floor.  

The present owners have undertaken some stunning renovations which have been done sympathetically to ensure it works with the house's history. The property also benefits from a detached double garage to the side of the plot.  In addition there is a substantial red brick pool house with sliding glass doors situated at the rear of the house which allows you to overlook the delightful gardens whilst in the pool area.  Lime Tree House now offers beautifully proportioned family accommodation with high ceilings to the principal reception rooms, and a mixture of period features with some lovely exposed timbers and an impressive fireplace to the sitting room, a wonderful flagstone floor to the hall and a 17th century dovecote in the gable above bedroom three.  All this is blended with later features from the Regency period with large shuttered sash windows to the front elevation and an elegant Regency staircase.
