Built approximately two and half years ago, this individual characterful property is located on the outskirts of Stanton St John, in an exclusive rural location with just three bespoke properties. Built as a barn style house, this home offers a great deal of charm and space and is flooded with natural light. With floor to ceiling windows, vaulted ceilings and wood burning stove complemented by a solid oak mantle. The current owners have tastefully redecorated the property and added features such as New England style shutters. Upon entering you are presented with a double height reception with minstrel’s gallery that flows through into an open plan kitchen living space with double French doors leading to the rear garden. The kitchen is beautifully fitted with a range of base and wall units in contrasting shades with Corian work surfaces. Integrated appliances include double ovens, combination oven and pizza oven, dishwasher, full height fridge and full height freezer. In addition to the expansive open plan first floor accommodation there is a formal drawing room with double glass doors. The drawing room has the flexibility that it can be closed off. The separate utility room is to the side with access into the garden. To complete the downstairs accommodation there is a study/bedroom 5 and a large cloakroom.
On the first floor there are four stylish bedrooms, the main bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe has a beautifully fitted ensuite bathroom with double width tiled enclosed rainfall shower with separate shower hose, tiled bath and dual Duravit vanity unit finished off with contrasting tiled flooring. There is an ensuite guest bedroom and two further bedrooms and family bathroom again with luxury fittings. An air source pump provides underfloor heating on both floors. The loft with light and power would be ideal for conversion, subject to the relevant permission.
Stanton St. John is one of the area's most sought after villages being ideally located within a five mile radius of Oxford High Street and within only a two mile radius of Headington roundabout into the city and M40, making it very popular with commuters into Oxford, London and the medical fraternity to name a few. The history of Stanton St. John is closely linked to New College, one of Oxford University's oldest colleges. It has a vibrant village community with many local clubs and organisations and the ancient church of St John the Baptist. There is a community shop, active village hall, nursery school, playgroup and children's playground, as well as a cricket pitch and two pleasant public houses. Nearby there is Beckley Primary School and gives easy access with a collection point to many of Oxford's highly regarded independent schools.
The property is set in an exclusive courtyard of three individual properties all built over two years ago. When entering the courtyard the property is directly in front of you. To the front there are pretty planted beds enclosed by a picket fence. The property benefits from a double car port opposite. The main garden lies to the rear of the house which has been landscaped by the current owners to include lawn, Indian stone paved terraces and colourful planted borders. Of great attraction are the stunning countryside views overlooking Sydlings Copse. There is a double function, cedar summerhouse/office.
