An imposing Victorian property commanding far-reaching views on all sides, Sandhill House is laid out to wonderful park-like grounds with abundantly planted herbaceous borders and manicured lawns which sweep down to its own tree-lined ornamental lake. The house comprises five double bedrooms, one en-suite, a substantial dining hall and two large reception rooms ideal for entertaining, as well as two grand offices, a large family bathroom with a modern shower and Jacuzzi and its original wine cellar. The property benefits from a double garage with automatic doors and additional off-road parking for 4-5 cars, and also includes a fully-insulated and heated studio/annexe with a large sauna and bathroom which could easily be adapted to be used as a gym or converted to a home-office or residential accommodation. The 1.5 acre property provides the rare opportunity to experience life in an elegant country residence with its beautifully preserved high ceilings, original doors and fittings, ornate plaster covings, several original fireplaces. But it has also been carefully modernised by its present owners, who have upgraded the oil-based heating system and the electrics, installed double or secondary glazing and re-roofed and insulated most of the property; the house also benefits from a new shared log/pellet burner. A large utility room with its modern fittings and under-floor heating contrast well with the period charm of the rest of the house. Thirty minutes to London by rail from Milton Keynes (14 miles), when the east-west line opens, central Oxford will be only some 20 minutes away from the new Winslow station (3 miles from the house).
