A four plus two bed, six bathroom detached home a short walk from Wychwood Barns.
The owners purchased the original property—a two-bed, one-bath bungalow—in 2013. Five years later, they gutted the place, added another two floors, and lived in it for several years. Now they have bought another fixer-upper and want to sell it.
The facade is a combination of wood veneer, metal cladding and some bricks from the original bungalow. The front porch with glass railings overlooks the landscaped terrace.
The entrance gives way to a small mud room and open concept living area. There is wide plank oak throughout the house.
Here is a reverse view of the living room. A wood burning fireplace was added during renovations. To the right is the door leading to the powder room and storage cupboard.
This is the dining room, between the living room and the kitchen.
The kitchen has an island that seats four people with skylights above. The countertops are Caesarstone quartz, and there’s a built-in coffee maker next to the fridge.
A closer look reveals a six-burner gas stove with a pot-filling spigot and an under-counter wine and drinks fridge. To the left of the oven, there is a tool cabinet that hides the microwave and toaster.
The kitchen also has a small breakfast nook with a bench that doubles as storage trunk.
Beyond the kitchen is a back mudroom which leads to the backyard and garage.
The second floor landing is quite spacious for this open concept hangout.
This is the first bedroom. It overlooks the neighborhood and has its own en suite bathroom and walk-in closet.
The en suite bathroom features a double vanity and funky herringbone tiled bathtub.
The second bedroom overlooks the backyard and also has an en suite and walk-in bathroom.
This is the second bathroom, with porcelain tiles surrounding the bath.
The master bedroom is on the third floor. It had vaulted ceilings and a balcony with glass railings.
The bedroom also has a walk-through wardrobe which leads to an en suite bathroom.
The master bathroom features herringbone flooring, double vanity, soaking tub and double walk-in shower.
This room shares a wall with the master bedroom. Currently used as an office but can be used as a fourth bedroom.
There is a recreation room in the basement.
There are two bedrooms in the basement. This one, currently occupied by a family au pair, has an ensuite bathroom.
Here’s the bathroom.
The room down the hall is set up as a gym. It leads to the second underground bedroom.
The cabinet holds Murphy’s bed—and, yes, it’s included in the sale of the house.
In the back, there is a small patio with a glass railing and a gas grill.
The terrace leads to an outdoor dining area and lounge with a gas fireplace.
The owners chose astroturf, gravel, and rocks for their low-maintenance backyard.
This is the garage, which can be accessed from a small driveway and backyard. There is a second parking lot facing a small road.
