3 Bedroom House (Now Sold)
Old Bix Road, Bix, RG9
A rare opportunity to purchase a house that has only been sold twice since it was built nearly a hundred years ago. The Pightle is set in landscaped gardens of approximately half an acre and looks over unspoilt and far-reaching rural views across the Stonor Valley.
The house has been previously granted planning permission for 4 bedrooms, extending its size to 2000ft2 (expired).
Built in 1920 in the Arts and Crafts style, it has been the focus of many well known artists, poets, writers and sportsmen. Access to the house is off the Old Bix Road, a quiet single-track lane. Outbuildings include a brick-built garage and large shed and there is parking for several cars.
The garden is laid to lawn, has three vegetable plots, established hedging, herbaceous borders and a well. Mature oak and cedar trees enhance the house's privacy and historic significance. The pond, a garden feature, was once the watering place for cattle belonging to the Roman Villa in the adjoining field.
Inside, the reception room with open fire and beamed ceiling provides the focus to the house, with kitchen, utility area, larder and dining room leading off.
Accommodation consists of three double bedrooms, two bathrooms and WC. One bedroom has an open fire. All rooms in the house have windows on double or triple aspects and give vantage to unspoilt rural views in every direction.
Charming features in the rooms include authentic inset Delft tiles and original fittings, doors and alcoves, timber floors and leaded windows.
