Handsome Woodstock manor house for sale

Woodstock Manor House occupies a prime position overlooking Blenheim Palace’s beautiful parkland.

Grade II listed, Woodstock Manor House is a gorgeous Georgian property which Lady Randolph Churchill, once famously remarked, offered ‘the finest view in England.’

Believed to date from the early eighteenth century, but with origins as a dwelling as far back as the mid- 1600s, the three-storeyed Woodstock Manor House retains much of its original character. The house comprises a grand hall, four reception rooms, 8 bedroom suites, kitchen, cellars and outbuildings, including a coach house and stable block that have planning consent to be converted into a residential cottage and further ancillary accommodation.

Woodstock Manor House is surrounded by mature walled gardens including a partially walled vegetable garden, which has the potential, subject to consent, to accommodate a tennis court. The property incorporates a private turning forecourt and ample space for parking. In all the gardens comprise 3.5 acres and there is also consent to extend the rear of the house to create an indoor swimming pool.

The manor house is situated on the edge of the chic and thriving market town of Woodstock, which offers a good range of shops and restaurants, all within a few minutes walking distance of the property.
