Outstanding Oxfordshire country house

The Baulk in Goring Heath was originally built as a folly. Today it is a fine Grade II listed country house sitting in the most glorious position with breathtaking views over South Oxfordshire and West Berkshire. Constructed of attractive brick and flint, the house is believed to date back to around
1870, with some later additions.

The house has ample space for formal entertaining as well as family living with a number of reception rooms providing extensive and flexible accommodation. Many period features have been retained, adding to the character of the property including beautiful exposed beam work, charming internal windows and open fireplaces.

There are seven further bedrooms along with a family bathroom, shower room, and en-suite to the master. A large eat-in kitchen has a 4-door Aga.

To the side of the house is a timber barn with space for parking two cars as well as a workshop, cloakroom and kitchen to the ground floor with stairs leading to a large studio which would also serve well as an office, games room or ancillary accommodation.

The heated swimming pool has a pool house and the gardens extend to 2.7 acres.
