Woodbridge House is a very handsome and spacious property that has been beautifully maintained by the current owners, affording a warm and welcoming family home. The house benefits from being situated in the highly desirable location of Old Boars Hill, within a green belt area approximately four miles south west of Oxford's city centre.

The house is believed to have been built in 1910 with later additions; with a versatile floor plan of over 5059 sq ft which affords a number of reception rooms, ideal for both formal and relaxed entertaining. The flexible living space also includes a detached home office/studio. This features a living space, kitchenette and shower room, ideally suited to guest/ancillary accommodation or as a gym. Outside there is garaging and a workshop, outbuildings and an open-sided store, all providing additional scope and storage.

The house is beautifully presented, with a sympathetic mixture of traditional and contemporary styles with clean lines, classic décor and a soothing neutral palette; giving a light and airy feel which enhances the spacious living area.

The ground floor accommodation is entered via an impressive reception hall with a useful study/cloakroom. A formal dining room at the front of the house has an attached loggia for outdoor entertaining. The separate kitchen/family room is beautifully appointed with a large central island, appliances including an AGA and a wealth of storage. The kitchen leads to a rear lobby and a utility room and further cloakroom. Adjoining the family room is a fabulous 32ft drawing room with three sets of French doors opening to the rear garden. The adjoining study has a triple aspect with sets of French doors at either end which would make a lovely family snug/morning room. To the first floor there are five good-size bedrooms (including the master suite), a family bathroom, adjoining a bedroom, and further en suite shower rooms to two of the bedrooms. Of particular note is the luxurious principal suite, which has a large dressing area which could equally be used as a private sitting room and an en-suite bathroom with both bath and shower facilities. The principal bedroom has French doors opening to a large wraparound balcony.


The property is set within a generous plot of about 1.82 acres, which wraps around the entire house and is bordered by mature trees providing a secluded and leafy backdrop. The gardens have a flowing, natural feel, surrounded by protected countryside which is best viewed from the elevated terrace to the rear of the house and from the first-floor balcony. The terrace extends into a private seating/dining area tucked into the L-shape of the property adding to the feeling of privacy and seclusion. In addition to the manicured lawns there is a separate paddock with a stable and a tennis court. To the front of the house there is a large gravel driveway with garaging and ample parking. A separate driveway provides access to the ancillary accommodation.


Located less than three miles South-west of Oxford, Boars Hill is an extremely well-regarded residential area with a significant number of sizeable detached houses in wooded gardens. Close by are a number of public houses, restaurants and there are footpaths and bridleways into Bagley Wood and woodland owned by the Oxford Preservation Trust with stunning views over Oxford's dreaming spires. There is easy access to the Oxford Ring Road, the A34, A420 and subsequent links to the M4 and M40. Also within easy reach are three train stations at Oxford, Oxford Parkway and Didcot Parkway. The house is ideally placed for a number of very highly regarded schools in Oxford and Abingdon; notably Dragon, Chandlings, Summerfields, St Hughes, Magdalen, St Edwards, Abingdon and Radley.
