The White House (formally registered as Bethany') is a substantial home conveniently located on the northern periphery of Oxford set in a spacious plot of approximately 0.27 acres, and offers the luxury of a self-contained, yet adjoining, one bedroom first floor flat. Across the ground floor there are up to six reception rooms to be utilised with at the property's core, a warming sitting room complete with dual aspect wood burner, perfectly connecting the flow into the dining room. There is a social' kitchen space to the rear of the building with another sitting room adjacent to this, leading through to the spacious and practical utility room. There is also a ground floor bedroom leading through to a kitchen/sitting room which if desired, could be designed to be separate from the main house to become a ground floor annexe. The property could be developed further to integrate more with the properties stunning gardens and existing brick workshop space, subject to the relevant consents. The first floor sleeping quarters currently offer 7 bedrooms, with a master bedroom including spacious dressing room and 3 bathrooms (one of which is located on the ground floor). There is easy capacity within the current bedroom layout to create fewer bedrooms and increase the number of bathrooms.

The 0.27 acre private grounds in which The White House is set are magical. The property is accessed via a gravel driveway through a gated entrance and has plenty of space to the front of the property to create garaging without sacrificing the existing parking arrangements. The garden to rear of the property is primarily a sweeping lawn in very good condition bounded by mature trees which have been meticulously cared for and attractive planting. The main garden offers a combination of terrace and garden rooms', bounded again by very attractive planting to provide atmosphere and offer the perfect private spaces for relaxation and outside dining with further formal lawned gardens beyond. The garden also houses a brick workshop which could easily be converted to a separate studio, garden room, or indeed home office. In all, a very special environment to be in.

Ground floor annexe (could be self contained) = 639 Sq Ft/59 Sq M
1 bedroom first floor flat = 374 Sq Ft/35 Sq M
