The Property
Offered for sale on the open market for the first time since it's construction back in 1964 this architect designed detached house in an area of outstanding natural beauty enjoys a commanding elevated position set in good size grounds of approximately two thirds of an acre with the principal reception rooms facing south west. The Grange was designed by Gerald Banks (whose notable previous works include the dining hall at St Anne's College in Oxford) and has only ever previously been sold privately.

The elegant proportions of the principal reception areas are complemented by African hardwood block flooring and an open fire place in the Drawing Room. The upstairs accommodation is approached by two staircases, making this house particularly suitable for those seeking guest or staff accommodation. A balustraded terrace links the side of the house with a swimming pool and patio area. The property is approached via a sweeping drive and continues to the rear of the property where there is a parking courtyard and garage block containing three garages (with electric doors) and a further car port. Although maintained to a high standard this most comfortable family home could be significantly modernised to create an outstanding country house within a Conservation area.
Directions
From our Charlbury office proceed into Sheep Street continuing into Hixet Wood and at the Fiveways junction carry straight on into the Woodstock Road. Continue up the hill where the property will be found on the left hand side shortly before the 30mph sign.
