The Dower HouseAbout this home

The Dower House is a superb four bedroom family home situated in a rural position with far reaching open countryside views, yet the beautiful Thames side town of Wallingford is less than one mile away.

The main reception rooms within the house are all wonderfully light, with large windows taking in the views of the surrounding farmland. The open plan kitchen is a particular highlight and connects to the dining room, which includes a log burner and has large bi fold doors that lead to the south facing terrace. The sitting room and office are both beautiful rooms and feature attractive open fireplaces. The family room sits in the centre of the house and makes for a cosy get away. The house is ideally suited for country living with a good-sized boot room and a separate utility room.

An oak framed barn has been built in the last year and includes parking bays for three cars, a gym and a self-contained annexe above. The gardens are mostly laid to lawn and there is an attractive centrally located pagoda, which is ideal for soaking up the sun at all times of the day.

Agent’s Note;

Planning consent is in place for a two storey extension to the main house which would include a new master bedroom suite and formal reception room below, making a total of five bedrooms. Planning reference number: PO8/WO432, South Oxfordshire District Council.

Please note, the fit out of the accommodation above the barn is ongoing and yet to be completed.

The AreaWallingford

Situated on the banks of the River Thames, Wallingford – with its desirable setting and attractive architecture – offers market town living at its finest. Bordered by the rolling Chilterns on one side and the magnificent Berkshire Downs on the other, it’s an idyllic spot with inexhaustible options for lovers of the outdoors. With its large open market square and famous castle ruins, this bustling market town is suffused in history. But what you might not know is that contemporary Wallingford is home to a fresh and energetic vibe, stoked by some great independent shopping, a sparkling array of dining options and a thriving café culture. If that wasn’t enough, Wallingford’s outstanding schools, great leisure facilities and abundant footpaths, mean the town is fast becoming South Oxfordshire’s most sought after small town.

With both Oxford and Reading within striking distance, Wallingford is well-connected to some of London’s fastest rail-links and is well positioned for both the M4 and M40.

There is a wide selection of excellent schools in the area including both state and private. Moulsford Prep and Cranford House are both close by, and Oxford and Abingdon both offer a good choice of private secondary schools.
