This is one of our Country Houses
Originally dating from the 1760s, the property has been thoughtfully and sympathetically updated to a very high standard by the current owners, who have lived in the property for the last 20 years. An extensive programme of works has recently been undertaken to enhance and highlight the wealth of period features and create the feeling of open plan living in a traditional period setting. The well-balanced accommodation is arranged over three floors. The ground floor offers a country kitchen with original oak beams, along with four receptions rooms which enable the owner to enjoy the different seasons and access to the cellar. The sitting and dining rooms provide a lovely degree of character and warmth with open fire and wood burner respectively, whilst the addition of an orangery, running along the width of the house, uniquely enhances the feeling of open plan living in a period setting. The lovely views down the length of the garden convey a connection with the outside, particularly in the Spring and Summer months.
Upstairs, the bedrooms offer a wonderful balance of space and charm, with an ensuite to the master, a family bathroom and a further bathroom on the second floor. New bespoke windows were installed in 2012, modelled on the local vernacular style and fitted with conservation window glass.
Outside, the spacious annexe has been built on the site of an old stone barn. By re-using the stone from the original structure, the owners have created a characterful self-contained annexe, which now offers guest accommodation, a separate space for working from home, or the potential for generating an income stream.
Kings Sutton is a pretty village located south east of Banbury off the A4260. It benefits from having a main line railway station running a service which includes commuter trains reaching London Marylebone in one hour. There is easy access to the M40 motorway junctions 10 (south to London) and 11 (north to Birmingham and the Midlands).
The village has a beautiful 13th Century Church and excellent facilities, including the village Post Office, shop, and an award winning gastro pub, as well as its own local primary school. It is conveniently situated within easy reach of a number of excellent private and state schools.
The established gardens to the property give a wonderful degree of privacy, with different seating areas positioned around the garden. Predominantly lawn, the garden borders are well stocked with an array of perennial flowers and shrubs giving interest and colour throughout the seasons along with a pond and further seating. There is a good size entertaining terrace to the rear of the property with the gardens’ boundaries made up of stone wall and established hedges and trees. A range of smaller outbuildings were rebuilt by the current owners to create a charming summerhouse and a workshop. Both have water and electric supply.
Beyond the summerhouse the garden is divided into a small orchard area on the right with a pear, a plum and apple trees, whilst on the left, bounded by espalier apple and peach trees, the garden is divided into four raised vegetable beds and a further raised bed containing soft fruit bushes and raspberry canes.
