  • Hawthorn House is a spacious and attractive family home that sits in a quiet private road in Bodicote village. The village location, surrounded by pretty

    countryside, but only a few miles from Banbury,

    perfectly suited the requirements of the present

    owners. They wanted their young children to

    experience the pleasure and safety of growing

    up in a close rural community, but with the wider

    world of work and leisure conveniently close by.

  • The house was in need of some care and attention and was not large enough for comfortable family living; however it

    stood on a generous plot and had huge potential, to be developed

    into a much larger home. Today, with its extension, and a largely

    open plan ground floor configuration, it is a home that welcomes

    and accommodates people with great ease.

  • The open plan area encompasses the kitchen, dining room and sitting room. It is the hub of busy daily life, and perfect for the cook, who can join in conversation with family and friends. It has been the ideal play area for young

    children, and a great entertaining space, where the whole family can gather together

    for anniversary celebrations and Christmas festivities. It is a house at its best when

    full of people.

  • The large, rear patio doors and windows allow natural light to flood into the house, creating a positive atmosphere, even on the dullest of days. The garden makes a delightful backdrop to the rooms and gives a sense of house and garden coming together

    as one harmonious whole. The present owner finds the generous utility room and shower room a great bonus, as it is where muddy

    wellington boots and dogs can be deposited and cleaned. There is a good choice of two further reception rooms. The family room has been

    used as a gym and a bedroom for the au pair, whilst the living room is somewhere to spend lazy, relaxed evenings.
