Staddlestone House is a wonderfully spacious classically converted barn in one of the most popular parts of Oxfordshire. The house is built of deep red brick and flint with timber framing with some wonderfully impressive beams in the high vaulted ceilings.
The property is well-suited to large scale entertaining, with spacious reception rooms and also to family living with very large bedrooms. It has a reception hall, drawing room, dining room, garden room, music area, kitchen/breakfast room and cellar. It has two bedroom suites – a master suite with private balcony and a guest suite, and five further bedrooms, with a possible eighth bedroom/cinema room. It also has an annexe with two bedrooms, study, games room, kitchen sitting room and a sauna/wet room. Outside there is also a 6 bay garage block, workshop, and a gym.
The house is approached from a small country lane and the grounds are impressive. The formal gardens are studded with silver birch, and the lawns are protected by a high brick wall as well as mature yew hedging. These continue down towards a childrens’ play area which includes an obstacle course. The outdoor swimming pool is adjacent to the annexe behind which there is also a small orchard.
To the north of the house is a well-maintained tennis court beside a pretty garden pond. Planning permission has also been granted to build a small one-bedroom cottage in the gardens to the house of the house, where a grain store once stood.
The property sits just one mile outside the charming village of Nettlebed and six miles from Henley. It sits five miles from Junction 5 of the M40 and there is a mainline rail service from Didcot Parkway (13 miles) which goes to London Paddington in 45 minutes. Local schools are excellent and Radley and Wycombe Abbey. There is racing at Newbury and rowing at Henley and there is lovely walking and riding in the local area.
The asking price is £3m. For further information please telephone Knight Frank on 01491 844 900.
