West Bar Street, Banbury, Oxfordshire, OX16


5 Bedroom Town House Sold

With some remaining narrow cobbled streets, a church built in 1797 and a market square still in use twice a week, Banbury retains a wealth of historic features and West Bar is no exception. Built c. 1870, as one of the executive homes of its day, 'Pevsner's Oxfordshire' called the terrace of houses a 'most important Later Victorian development' which was destined to be occupied by one of the wealthy middle classes of Victorian England.

This beautiful Gothic building, listed on a map from 1880 as 'Clarence House', retains many of its period features and presents a grand and proud facade. The labour of love that the house has benefitted from has to be seen to be believed. Our client refused to use anything but lime plaster as it's the original and correct material for the house, carefully matched the correct cornicing, introduced new windows with the correct sashes; carried out an entire rewire and re-plumb of all four floors and also recently repointed the entire house. And that's a very slim guide. This house is the outcome of what can happen when you consummately marry together modern living and period design, keeping the best of both.

As you enter through the substantial front door, you are greeted by a light, airy and large hallway. Not many hallways exude space and style, but this one does! Slender balustrades and spindles provide a framework that is elegant and continues across all floors.

First, head downstairs to the ground floor as this is where we imagine most families will spend their time. There is handy access from this level to both the front and the rear of the property. The first door heads into a spacious reception room that offers an answer to every need, with windows overlooking the front garden pulling in great light Playroom? Informal lounge? Study? Plenty of choice. At the rear of the hall, the kitchen/diner is absolutely stunning. Fully fitted with the top of the range from Bulthaup, this kitchen has every required mod con and more, including a teppanyaki hot plate, induction hob and steam oven. Most appliances are Gaggenau, the best of the best, and even the dishwasher is Miele. Split into two by the lengthy peninsula, the room works exceptionally well, with an obvious (and large) kitchen space from which the chef can speak to those at the breakfast table. It really is the ideal family kitchen.
