A magnificent period town house in the centre of Witney for renovation with substantial accommodation over four floors, rear garden, garage and parking. This building was converted to commercial use in 1983 and most recently has served as office accommodation by F M Green Financial Advisors. In 2010 planning permission was granted to restore the building to its original residential configuration and once completed this will be a stunning property. The accommodation will comprise four large bedrooms, one bathroom, two shower rooms, two sitting rooms, a sizeable open plan kitchen/breakfast room with utility room and cloakroom beyond. The property has a garden to the rear which in turn leads to a garage with associated parking. It is possible that this garage may be rebuilt as part of the renovation programme from No. 39. Full and up-to-date details are available at the agent's office for inspection or can be viewed online at the WODC website through application number 10/0891/P/FP. An incredible opportunity to acquire a substantial period property in need of total modernisation.
Witney is a small country town steeped in history, but with good modern amenities and a bustling community life. The Leisure centre caters for a variety of sports and there are excellent schools, including a number of church schools. The Woolgate centre and other smaller shops have been supplemented by a new central shopping precinct with major names such as Marks & Spencer, Debenhams and in addition a multi-screen cinema. Public transport is available from outlying villages and from Witney to Oxford and on to London.
Entry via: Half glazed front door with glazed fan light over to:

Sitting Room A spacious room with arched display recess to either side of chimney breast. Window to front. Understairs storage cupboard. Ornate central dog-leg staircase with square cut balustrade and stripped banister over rising to first floor.
Second Sitting Room Further arched recess display areas to either side of chimney breast. The planning approval allows for the removal of the side passage way wall considerably increasing the space available in this room.
Rear Office This section of the building is of single storey only and in the approved plans this would become a glorious open plan kitchen/breakfast/family room with atrium glazed sky lights.
Utility Room This can either be incorporated into the kitchen or left as a separate utility subject to a minor planning variation.
Cloakroom Low flush WC. Wash hand basin and window to rear.
First Floor Landing Dog-leg stairs from the ground floor and rising to second floor. Large storage cupboard with approval to convert this area into an ensuite to bedroom one.
Cloakroom This area has approval to be widened slightly to provide enough space for a family bathroom but currently has a toilet and wash basin with window to rear.
Bedroom One A generous room with two large sash windows to front with views over Church Green. Open cast iron fireplace with tiled returns and white painted fireplace with mantle over. Useful wardrobe recess to either side of chimney breast.
