Greenways is a substantial and attractive Victorian family house with bags of character. At over 3,750 sq ft of accommodation, this 5/6 bedroom house is awash with glorious Victorian features. Highlights include the beautiful tiled floors in the hallway, with stained glass windows either side of the imposing front door. The proportions throughout are excellent with high ceilings and masses of natural light owing to the large sash windows. There is period cabinetry throughout, numerous original fireplaces and the most impressive original range oven in the kitchen, which is not currently used. Whilst there is an unspoilt character, the current owners have brought the property into the 21st century with light and modern interiors which are sympathetic to the original period. A guest bedroom and en suite bathroom were added to the second floor in 2016 and there is additional planning consent to enlarge the master bedroom and kitchen. Planning consent was granted in June 2020, planning reference: P20/S1485/HH with South Oxfordshire District Council. There is ample parking at the front of the property with a garden laid mostly to lawn at the rear and a large and attractive terrace which is accessed via the garden room and ideal for entertaining
Long Wittenham is one of South Oxfordshire’s most highly regarded and sought after villages. An attractive village with many period and thatched properties, there is a real sense of community. This is very much a village which retains the best qualities of traditional village life. Perched on the banks of the River Thames, the Plough pub is within walking distance from Greenways and there is also an excellent Indian restaurant, The Vine & Spice located on the High Street. Commuting to London or Oxford couldn’t be easier. Long Wittenham is exceptionally well placed, with Didcot Parkway Station less than 4 miles away and trains to London Paddington from 37 minutes. A cycle path runs directly from Long Wittenham to Didcot. Long Wittenham is equidistant from the two Thameside market towns of Abingdon and Wallingford, with their desirable settings and attractive architecture – both offer market town living at its finest. Oxford itself is less than 10miles away. Bordered by the rolling Chilterns on one side and the magnificent Berkshire Downs on the other, the surrounding countryside is idyllic with inexhaustible options for lovers of the outdoors, with the highlight being the neighbouring Wittenham Clumps. There is a wide and excellent choice of both state and private schools, including a Primary School within Long Wittenham.
