Description

Oakley House is a striking Grade II Listed house which probably dates back to the mid 1800’s and has been lived in by the same family for the past 40 years. The house provides very comfortable family accommodation and still possesses many original characteristics and features including open fireplaces. At the front of the house are the three main receptions rooms which consist of a large dining room, drawing room and sitting room. All of which have been updated and beautifully enhanced by our clients. These rooms also make the most of the original sash windows and high ceilings. Additionally on this floor is a large central hallway which gives access to the first floor, a study, sitting room and an eat in family kitchen.
On the first floor there is a large master bedroom suite which benefits from its own dressing room and bathroom. Additionally on this floor are a further four double bedrooms
and a family bathroom. The extensive internal area continues on the lower ground floor which is currently used as storage but could easily be incorporated into the main house to maximum the living area and internal sqft.

The house is complemented by delightful gardens and grounds of approx 1.3 acres which is primarily laid to lawn but offers huge scope to further landscape. The entire garden really maximises the position of the house and gives far reaching views over the valley and beyond

Square Footage: 6,000 sq ft
