Wychwood is a family house and a much loved one at that, having been in the same ownership for over forty years. Constructed in the 1950's the house has whitewashed elevations and stands almost centrally within a large mature garden, which offers excellent privacy and space to extend (subject to the necessary consents). The well planned accommodation has a traditional layout and the house has been improved with the benefit of double glazing and gas fired central heating. The addition of a large conservatory at the rear has created a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the lovely gardens and the myriad of birdlife that is attracted to the varied planting and specimen trees. Offered in very good order as it stands, the house also offers outstanding potential for further extension if required.
Set on a no through lane, Wychwood occupies one of the best locations on Britford Lane, a peaceful residential area that is highly sought after by the local population, prized for its ease of access to the City yet enjoying a countryside setting. A long drive, flanked by mature hedging , provides a secluded and attractive entrance to the house. From the front door the entrance hall leads to the good size Sitting Room at the rear of the house, a pleasant reception space which in turn opens to the Conservatory which has fitted blinds. A second reception room at the front provides a spacious Dining Room. The Kitchen is well fitted with a range of units, including useful pull-out breakfast bar and is equipped with built-in Miele twin ovens and hob, dishwasher and pull out fridge. There is a large Utility Room offering more appliance and storage space, and an adjoining laundry room including a water softener. There is also a ground floor shower room.
On the first floor landing there is access to the boarded loft. There are three good size bedrooms, all with built in storage and a fourth bedroom room, currently used as a Study, along with a family bathroom with white suite.
The entrance drive offers ample parking space and leads to the detached garage to the side of the house. The front garden is well tended, with clipped hedging and deep borders planted with a myriad of shrubs that provide colour and interest throughout the seasons.
The large rear garden is level and secluded, spacious lawns interspersed by a variety of trees including a majestic Willow and Walnut, which offer height and maturity to the plot, which is very well maintained and cared for. Colourful shrub beds combine with herbaceous planting and productive vegetable beds to create a gardeners paradise, including a greenhouse, fruit cage and shed.
At pavioured terrace at the back of the house, with rose covered trellis, planted with dianthus at their feet, forms a wonderfully scented place to entertain or dine, or indeed just relax and enjoy the lovely south west facing plot and listen to the bird song.
