Lovely family home, perfect for the Oxford and Abingdon schools, in this most sought-after location backing on to Bagley Wood.
Brambles was built in 1939 and is a much loved home; as can be seen from the floor plans the generous principal rooms are accessed from a central hall and galleried landing. Features include original Parquet flooring in the hall, dining room and music room. There is new oak flooring (partially heated underfloor) in the extended sitting room which has French doors leading to the terrace and garden. The sitting room has a gas fire and there is an open fire in the dining room. The kitchen is well laid out and the adjacent study/breakfast room could be a playroom. The house is double glazed, has been re-wired, and has gas fired central heating, the Worcester boiler was installed in 2009. The house is good for the home worker – there is a lovely first floor office into an oriel style bay window over-looking the drive. The large and well-appointed Summerhouse is currently used as a home office. The internal doors have beautifully made individual stained glass panels by Vital Peters, a well known Oxford artist.
The gardens and grounds are a particular feature. The house is approached via a gravel drive which opens into a good sized turning circle providing ample parking. There is a lovely enclosed kitchen garden, with raised beds, a sitting out area and large green house. Adjoining the garage is a large workshop and climate controlled wine cellar. To the rear of the house there is a wide, southerly facing terrace, and gardens beyond. The formal gardens are beautifully laid-out with a central lawn surrounded by specimen trees and shrubs, there is also a productive orchard. Towards the end of the land there is a hard tennis court in very good order with a wild flower meadow beyond running up to the woodland to which there is a gate.
