Woodside House sits back from the main road in an enviable rural position near Edge Hill on the edge of the Cotswolds. The nearby village of Kineton offers a selection of shops, pubs, restaurants and services with the market towns of Banbury and Shipston-on-Stour providing a wider variety of facilities. The National Trust owned Upton House and Gardens is located just a mile away and Soho Farmhouse is 15 miles to the south. There is an excellent range of State and Private schools in the area including Shipston-on-Stour Secondary School, two Grammar Schools in Stratford-upon-Avon as well as Private Preparatory Schools which include St Johns Priory in Banbury, The Croft in Stratford-upon-Avon, and Kitebrook House in Moreton-in-Marsh). Secondary Private Education is available at the nearby Tudor Hall, Bloxham and Sibford Schools.

Woodside House was originally a pair of traditionally constructed semi-detached cottages set well back from the road believed to date from the 1940’s, being part of The Upton Estate. The current owners have undertaken some renovation and improvement works over recent years, including replacing the roof, altering the internal layout to form a single property, installing a new bathroom, installing a new boiler and redeveloping the gardens and grounds.

The property still offers great potential for further improvement, particularly in the remaining cottage, and the internal layout could either be reconfigured further to create a more free flowing single dwelling, or equally be separated to create an annexe or similar.

The property, being formerly two semi-detached cottages, has several entrances. In the re-developed part of the house, the kitchen/dining room is a good size with adjacent boot room, walk-in larder and cloakroom. A sitting room is adjacent. The former second cottage has a sitting room, back kitchen with utility room, bathroom and further reception room. Stairs from the re-developed part lead to a family bathroom, with large walk in shower, and space ready for a bath. There are also two bedrooms.

In the part requiring further improvement there are three bedrooms. The bedrooms here could be knocked through to create a further corridor to integrate the whole house into one property on both ground and first floor.

Given the size of the plot there is potential to extend the existing accommodation (subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents).

The property is surrounded by attractive gardens and benefits from fine views on all aspects, which make it a real feature. The gardens to the front are mainly laid to grass. Situated below the house is a former kitchen garden, with ornate glasshouse, which served Sunrising House, now offers great potential. This area also benefits from a separate vehicular road access.

The grounds, which benefit from a secondary access, have potential for alternative equestrian, commercial, smallholding or amenity purposes subject to obtaining the necessary planning permissions. Plans have also been drawn up and a planning assessment completed to create a courtyard of holiday lets.
