The Bridge is a spacious and impressive canalside home, converted from a former public house, in Southamm Road, Napton. It is set in 1.25 acres of grounds in a picturesque location alongside the Oxford canal. It is located on the edge of Napton on the Hill, a delightful village which provides a range of local amenities. The house has been extensively renovated by the present owners so there is nothing to do except personalise the space, and develop the land and outbuildings to suit your needs.
Electric gates open into the spacious grounds. To the left side is an extensive car parking area for approximately 25 cars. The present owner is currently submitting plans for a detached triple garage. The house is to the right, with a low maintenance paved and gravelled terrace along the frontage. The terrace then wraps around the right side of the house, where a narrow terrace looks out over a low wall to the canal towpath and the winding hole almost opposite.
The welcoming entrance hallway with its galleried landing is currently used as a sitting room with study and living areas. The hub of the house, however, is the huge open plan living room which is divided into kitchen, breakfast and seating areas and enjoys lovely views over the canal, and provides access to the garden through glazed patio doors. A further huge drawing room creates a fantastic entertaining space. There is a double bedroom with en suite shower room on the ground floor which would be ideal for a dependant relative.
Upstairs on the first floor there is a master bedroom with en suite shower room, two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. There are two more bedrooms on the second floor with slightly restricted head height.
To the rear of the house is a private garden area, comprising a formal seating area, and a lawn. This is enclosed on three sides and fenced on the fourth, providing fabulous views across the canalside paddock and on towards to countryside. To the left of this garden area is a self-contained outbuilding which could be used as an annexe or home office. Planning permission is being submitted to convert this into a holiday let.
