A Big House

Vast Georgian village house in Oxfordshire for sale for £4.25 million

 

A Grade II* listed, mid-18th century village house in Adderbury, Oxfordshire has just gone on sale for £4.25 million ($5.74 million, €4.79 million or درهم21.10 million) after fifty years in the same family.

 

Providing a total of 11,290 square foot of accommodation and including 5 reception rooms, a 38-foot long kitchen, 4 cellar rooms, 10 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms, Cross Hill House is built of Horton stone and has a Welsh slate roof. It is described as being of “the mid-Georgian style” and as “a big house” by Country Life’s Penny Churchill.

 

Formerly owned by Lieutenant-Colonel Henry Everard Du Cane Norris (1869 – 1960), Lord Lieutenant of Oxfordshire in 1939 and a significant freehold property owner in Hackney, London until the 1930s, the house comes with 5.98 acres of formal and informal gardens, 2 Victorian walled gardens and 3 large garages.

 

Cross Hill House – which is 3 miles from Banbury and 18 miles from Oxford – is listed by Damian Gray of Knight Frank LLP.

  • It seems quite expensive given it only has 5 acres but I do like the features. Obviously needs some updating also - so maybe £4.25 million is a bit excessive.

  • Well ---- You all know what I think given your previous idiotic comments about me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This place is not MAGA and it needs a wrecking ball!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why do English people continually cling to "historic" and not embrace MODERNITY!!!!!!!!!!!!! The kitchen doesn't even have an American fridge!!!!!!!! How can they ask AU $ 7 m for this dump without such things?????? Insanity reigns!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • It has bucket loads of charm but can you imagine what it would cost to maintain? So many vast rooms and acres of roofing!
