Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Originally dating from the 17th century, the house was remodelled during the Georgian period and retains classic features from this elegant architectural era. The house is set in a wonderful private location within half an hour of Oxford and close to Soho Farmhouse set in fine gardens and grounds.

The house has recently undergone an extensive renovation project with huge attention to detail to restore the original features to bring it back to its former glory and create a stunning home. The layout of Adderbury House is ideal for family living and entertaining. The house can be separated on the ground floor into two distinct areas to suit both needs. The panelled reception hall provides an impressive entrance to the house with two wings leading off. Occupying the west wing are the formal entertaining rooms which include the dining room and the drawing room/ballroom with adjoining bar and cloakroom providing a perfect space for entertaining on a grand scale. The East wing provides the everyday living space with study, sitting room with two sets of French doors to the garden and the kitchen/breakfast room, beyond which are the boot room, utility room and the media/family room. The kitchen, which has direct access to the formal garden, has been beautifully fitted with Sub Zero, Wolf and Gaggenau appliances. The laundry room, store and further cloakroom are arranged off a glass link opening onto a courtyard garden. Occupying the first, second and third floors, are eight bedroom suites seven of which have separate dressing rooms and bathrooms (all with underfloor heating). Accessed via a separate gated entrance at the rear of the house, the two cottages are arranged off a courtyard and provide ideal staff accommodation.


Located just half an hour north of Oxford and within 15 and within easy reach of Oxford schools, Adderbury is a particularly sought after village noted for the many honey-coloured limestone cottages and houses in the older parts of the village. The nearby market town of Banbury offers retail, sporting and leisure facilities. Local education includes a primary school in the village and the Warriner Comprehensive in Bloxham. Prep schools are St Johns Priory (Banbury) and Carrdus (Overthorpe), Winchester House (Brackley). Senior independent schools; Bloxham (3 miles), Tudor Hall, Stowe School, Sibford, Warwick and the highly regarded Oxford schools including St Edward's, Summer Fields, Magdalene College School, Dragon School to name a few. There are two private bus services, one for Warwick School and another for Oxford schools. Access to the M40 motorway can be gained at Ardley (Jct 10) and from Banbury (Jct 11).
