Bedrooms: 5
An exceptional stone-built detached house in a rural idyll with excellent access to Oxford and London.

Situated in a peaceful location just off the main street, Stone Crest is a substantial and versatile house set back from the road in an elevated position. The accommodation is spacious with a wealth of natural light from the mature and private southerly facing garden at the rear.

Entering a lobby area through a large oak front door, the ground floor then flows well from a welcoming entrance hall. The kitchen has been stylishly renovated with modern units and fittings over which is a quartz worktop. There is a breakfast bar area with windows on two sides, and a utility room, also finished beautifully. At the rear is a dining room and a sitting room with a fireplace leading out to a very large garden room that has underfloor heating for the colder months and electric blinds for the summer.

Off the entrance hall there is also a study, WC and two staircases, one of which leads to a fantastic bedroom over the garage. The first floor of the main house has a main bedroom with an en suite shower room including double basins, three more spacious bedrooms, two with walk-in wardrobes, one with a basin, and a family bathroom with bath and a walk-in shower. Off the bright landing there is also access to a boarded full-headroom loft/attic for storage. As downstairs all the upstairs doors and window frames are made of solid oak. There is full fibre optic 900 meg broadband installed.

Outside at the front of the house is a driveway able to accommodate six cars, a couple of outbuildings, and a beautifully equipped double garage. The garage is heated, has double solid oak doors - and another door giving access to the rear of the house, a fully tiled floor and full plumbing. It was designed for conversion to be a separate flat if necessary.

On the left side of the house, passing under a very productive pear tree, there is side access to the rear garden. The south facing garden is a wonderful oasis, bordered by mature trees on either side and an enviable outlook over a meadow. There is a patio area at the rear of the house and a large lawn. An insulated outbuilding with power and light at the bottom of the garden has two windows and is useable as a garden playroom or home office.
