The AreaBoars Hill

Boars Hill is a highly sought-after hamlet sat in an elevated position overlooking the city of Oxford, and it’s dreaming spires below. There is a wonderful rural feel, yet the many attractions of Oxford’s cultural and leisure amenities are only three miles away. Ideally located for traveling across the country, the A34, M40 and M4 are all within easy reach, as is London. The dramatic countryside of both the Cotswolds and the Berkshire Downs are both close at hand with numerous leisure activities available including walking, golf, horse racing, polo to name a few. Oxfordshire is also lucky enough to be home to no less than 72 independent schools, offering a broad mix of schooling to suit all children.

Birch Copse, Boars HillAbout this home

Birch Copse is a modern master piece, built in a traditional Georgian style with an attention to detail unseen in almost all newly built houses. The craftsmanship is clear to see throughout with hand crafted wooden box frame sash windows, deep skirting boards, oversized doors, natural stone floors and exquisitely sourced marble fire places.

There is a wonderful mix of modern and traditional materials throughout and an obvious commitment to quality and architectural integrity. The Kitchen is sensational, complete with an open fireplace, far reaching views from the bay window and French doors leading to the south facing terrace which overlooks the gardens beyond. The grand reception rooms all have high ceilings and the large sash windows soak the rooms with an abundance of natural light.

The six bedrooms within the house are all ensuite, with beautifully curated bathrooms, all individual with a bespoke mix of marble and stone and fitted with Lefroy Brooks sanitary ware throughout. There is a versatility to the bedrooms on the second floor, which could also make ideal an ideal space for a billiards/games room or a cinema room.

Birch Copse sits in a tranquil and rural position within 15 acres of grounds which include formal gardens and paddock land. There is a large 3 bay garage complete with staff flat above and a tennis court. Birch Copse really is the best of both worlds, a modern home which takes inspiration from a golden era of architecture, and built with high levels of integrity and attention to detail.
