Woodstock House is a stone built detached family home occupying an enviable plot with far reaching views over open countryside in the sought after Oxfordshire village of Somerton. The house was built in 2002 by the respected local builder, Pye Homes, and offers a very high standard of build, in a stunning village location. The property offers flexible and spacious accommodation.

The front door opens into a wide hallway with double doors leading through to a formal dining room with further glass doors through to the conservatory which overlooks the rear garden. The well proportioned sitting room has a pretty stone fireplace with an inset wood burner, the double aspect allows for an abundance of natural light.

There is a family/breakfast room off the kitchen with French doors leading on to a rear terrace, ideal for al fresco dining. The open plan kitchen has a island for occasional meals, wall and base units, an integrated dishwasher, twin ovens and an electric induction hob with an extractor overhead.

Leading from the kitchen there is a utility room. A large cloakroom and study complete the ground floor.

On the first floor there is a principal bedroom with a modern en-suite shower room. This bedroom is spacious, modern and has great views over the surrounding countryside. There is a large guest bedroom with an en-suite, two further double bedrooms and a single bedroom.


The front garden is primarily laid to lawn and is surrounded by mature hedging. There is a stone flagged pathway to the front door as well as parking for two vehicles at the front. To the left of the house there are formal gates leading to an enclosed parking area which in turn has access to the double garage. To the right there is a wooden gate allowing for access to the rear garden. Externally the house is in good order with modern windows and a pretty porch over the front entrance.

The main reception rooms open out onto the rear garden which has been beautifully landscaped. This area has been terraced incorporating mature borders, lawns, two gravelled seating areas, stone paving and established flowerbeds. There is a further strip of land planted with trees.


The small village of Somerton is nestled to one side of the Cherwell Valley being set amongst picturesque open countryside close by the River Cherwell and Oxford Canal. The property is well placed for access to the M40 with junction 10 being approximately 3½ miles distant whilst the market town of Bicester is approximately 7 miles to the south east providing a good range of local shops and a train service to London (Marylebone) from Bicester North and Bicester Village.
