Approached through wooden gates over a large, sweeping gravel driveway is this magnificent house of over 5,000 sq ft. Located in the centre of Chipping Norton, Rock Hill House is incredibly attractive, dating back to the 17th Century with later additions and sits in a private 0.9 acre plot. The accommodation throughout is generous and the numerous reception rooms allow great flexibility as to how they could be used. Highlights include the impressive 30 ft orangery (currently used as a dining room) with attractive sash windows which fill the room with light and frame the beautiful garden beyond. The well-appointed kitchen/breakfast room was fitted in recent years and has a useful utility/boot room and cloakroom beyond. The well-proportioned reception rooms include a drawing room, sitting room, family room, games room/children’s playroom, orangery/dining room and study. An attractive staircase leads to the first floor where all five bedrooms have ensuite bath/shower rooms making for comfortable family living. Everything at Rock Hill House is about scale and the gardens are no different, being mostly laid to lawn and planted with established flower beds and a variety of trees. A metal gate leads through to a vegetable garden and orchard as well as a private courtyard to the rear of the property with hot tub and separate terrace, perfectly suited for those who enjoy outside dining and entertaining.
Occupying the highest point of Oxfordshire, Chipping Norton is a bustling market town located around 18 miles northwest of Oxford in the Cotswold Hills. Like many Cotswold towns, Chipping Norton is incredibly pretty, many of the original houses around the market place were rebuilt in the 18th century with fashionable Georgian frontages. The town’s wealth grew through the local wool trade and today is renowned for its antique shops and diverse shopping, including a regular market. Chipping Norton retains a robust living, working market town atmosphere, there is a good choice of places to eat, supermarkets and top-quality entertainment at the wonderful theatre, famous for its pantomime and visiting performers. If that wasn’t enough, another attraction is the proximity to Soho Farmhouse, Daylesford and some of north Cotswold's most renowned pubs - all a short drive away, merely adding to the appeal of this superb area. For more comprehensive shopping and recreational needs, Oxford, Cheltenham and Stratford-upon-Avon are within striking distance as are a number of popular schools. The area is well-connected to some of London’s fastest rail-links with Kingham station only 5 miles away and good access to the A34 and M40.
