Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

Grade l listed manor house available on a 10 year lease sitting in 13 acres of formal gardens.


Cornbury is a beautiful stone built Cotswold country house and is steeped in history. The original Tudor house was improved in the 1630's with the addition of the Southern facade by Nicholas Stone for the Earl of Danby, internally centred on a great hall. In the 1660's the then incumbent Earl of Clarendon employed Hugh May to create a new facade, also in the Classical style, at right angles to Stone's facade.
The current internal layout was set out in the 1960's and subsequently decorated by the renowned interior designer, John Fowler.
The ground floor of Cornbury House consists of four formal reception rooms, each with its own style and all with the grandeur befitting the architecture of the house. Along with the impressive dining room there is an atmospheric library, several studies and a modern family kitchen. On the first floor all the principal bedroom suites have open aspects over the surrounding gardens and parkland.
In addition to these rooms there are service rooms on the ground floor, a further six bedrooms on the first, large cellars and a second floor with attic rooms. A three bedroom Nursery Cottage adjoins the service wing. The house sits within formal gardens that lie predominantly to the west of the house. These include a swimming pool, formal gardens and total around 13 acres.
The setting of Cornbury can compete with the noblest houses in the Cotswolds. It is surrounded by the Deer Park, with aspects towards Charlbury andWychwood Forest.
