Situated within easy walking distance of the popular town of Bampton, Oak House is a fabulous 4-bedroom family home built in the 1980's in the traditional Cotswold stone style. Internally the beautifully presented house is arranged over two floors with Oak lintels and ceiling beams throughout. The front door opens onto a light and welcoming entrance hall with an adjacent cloakroom. On the right, part-glazed double doors lead into an elegant drawing room with its impressive oak ceiling beams and central stone fireplace and hearth. Across the hall is the well appointed fitted kitchen/breakfast room with integrated double oven and hob. From here wooden doors open onto a small private courtyard to the front. The more formal dining area to the rear opens out to the large terrace area and beautiful gardens beyond.

Stairs lead up to the light and airy split-level first floor landing where four well-proportioned bedrooms can be found. The master bedroom is particularly impressive with its vaulted ceiling, oak beams, fitted wardrobes, contemporary en-suite shower room and window overlooking the garden. There are two further good size double bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room plus a single bedroom which is currently being used as a study and a family bathroom with tongue and groove panelling.

A particular feature of the property is the delightful and part-walled mature garden which is principally laid to lawn and surrounded by mature trees, shrubs and well-stocked herbaceous planting. A large private terraced area close to the house provides the perfect setting for al-fresco entertaining. There is a summer house and tucked away at the far end is a garden shed.

Outside to the front is a gravelled parking area plus a large garage and a car port for two cars. Stone steps lead up beside the garage to a separate annexe comprising a large open-plan kitchen/dining/sitting room, a double bedroom with en-suite shower room and a separate bathroom.
