A really super, spacious family home in a sought after Oxfordshire village
This is a truly rare opportunity to own a fantastic family home in the heart of Childrey – a village that no-one ever seems to want to leave! Lawrence Close is a quiet cul-de-sac development of 13 contemporary homes. You’re a short stroll from coffee or lunch at the chic village shop, the kids can walk to the pre-school or the highly regarded village primary school, and there is endless stunning countryside right on your doorstep. The market town of Wantage is just 3 miles away and there is easy access to Oxford, the M4 and Didcot Parkway station for travel to London.
The layout of this lovely home very much lends itself to family life, with spacious rooms that flow effortlessly. There are plenty of open plan areas for family and friends to congregate, and enough room for everyone in the family to have their own private spaces too. Everyone in the family can have their own big bedroom, plus there’s a fantastic bonus room on the second floor. This is also a very energy efficient home with modern solar panels providing free hot water from April to October.
Enter through the porch into a spacious hallway from which all the downstairs rooms lead. On your left, you’ll find the sunny kitchen diner with its modern white units, contemporary tiled floors and solid wood work surfaces. You can enjoy a morning coffee at the breakfast bar or a meal with friends and family around the large farmhouse style dining table. Off the kitchen there’s a useful utility room/pantry with a separate sink and a huge storage cupboard. The back door leads from here into the pretty garden…more of which later.
Cross the hallway through glass double doors into the large double aspect sitting room, decorated in neutral tones with contemporary wooden flooring. The light in this room is really lovely and you’ll enjoy curling up in front of the Clearview log burner in winter or sitting by the open patio doors overlooking the garden in the summer. Downstairs there is also a cloakroom/WC and a peaceful study which overlooks the garden.
On the first floor you’ll find four double bedrooms and a modern family bathroom. The master suite is spacious and tranquil with its own stylish ensuite shower room and WC. The three further bedrooms on this floor are all good sized doubles and are served by the modern family bathroom.
The second floor of this home is a real show-stopper! The current owners have transformed the loft space into a stunning media/lifestyle room with its own kitchenette, a further double bedroom and bathroom with WC and shower. The views from up here over to the Ridgeway are fantastic! Currently this is used as an office and cinema room but is flexible enough to be used in a variety of different ways: as a self-contained guest suite, granny annexe, au-pair’s room or even a space for older children to give them the freedom and privacy they may crave.
Outside & Gardens
At the front of the property there’s driveway parking for multiple cars and a detached double garage with electric doors. The secluded rear garden has a patio area for entertaining and a secluded lawn providing a safe place for children to play.
The village of Childrey is probably one of the best kept secrets in this part of Oxfordshire. A quintessential English village, with stunning country views, a picturesque duck pond, beautiful Church, highly regarded primary school and fantastic deli/coffee shop, it’s no wonder many people who move here never want to leave!
Childrey offers peaceful country living and a thriving village community but is just 3 miles from Wantage with its shops and amenities including a Waitrose, Costa Coffee, restaurants, parks and leisure centre. Wantage is a thriving market town that has recently been identified by The Sunday Times as a great place to live. Childrey also offers easy access to Oxford, Swindon and Newbury, and trains to London from nearby Didcot Parkway (11 miles). It’s very welcoming village with social functions throughout the year organised by the church, school and local community. There are fabulous pubs in the neighbouring villages of Sparsholt and Letcombe Regis, both within walking distance through beautiful countryside.
The Ridgeway CE Primary School in the village has a great reputation and King Alfred’s Academy in Wantage has an Outstanding Ofsted rating. There is a joint bus service from the village to Abingdon Boys School, The School of St Helen and St Katherine, and The Manor Preparatory School. Other local independent schools nearby include Cokethorpe, Radley, Our Lady’s, St Hugh’s, Pinewood and Cranford House.
