About Adderbury House
Adderbury House is a stately Grade II listed building built in 1722 for John Wilmot, 2nd Earl of Rochester. Initially built in the Baroque style, the house was altered and enlarged in the Georgian era, retaining features of both classic architectural styles.
Recently renovated with meticulous care to restore its original features, the house boasts a state-of-the-art kitchen with Sub Zero, Wolf, and Gaggenau appliances, as well as underfloor heating in each bedroom suite.
The ground floor can easily be separated into two distinct areas, providing versatile spaces for entertainment and family living.
The wood-panelled reception hall provides a striking entrance to the east and west wings. Formal rooms in the West Wing, including the dining room and ballroom with adjoining bar, provide an opportunity for entertaining on a grand scale.
Meanwhile, the East wing makes for a comfortable living space, featuring the kitchen, utility room, boot room, study, and sitting room, with French doors opening onto the expansive garden. Below this lies a sizable wine cellar and plant room.
An elegant staircase ascends from the Reception Hall to the upper floors, housing eight impressive bedroom suites, most with adjoining bathrooms and dressing rooms.
Adderbury House is set in a private location with beautiful gardens adjacent to extensive parkland. The park and gardens were originally designed by Lancelot Brown in 1768.
There are two cottages associated with the house, accessible through a separate gated courtyard, provide additional living space, with the first cottage boasting three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a study, sitting room, and kitchen, and the second featuring two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a reception room, kitchen, utility, and boot room.
The nearby village of Adderbury, situated under 4 miles from the market town of Banbury, enjoys two local pubs on The Green, a tennis and squash club, a library and stunning walking trails around the Adderbury Lakes.
Adderbury has a mainline railway station to London Marylebone, and the house is conveniently accessible to the M40 via Junction 10 for easy reach of Oxford (73 miles) and excellent independent schools, including nearby Bloxham School and Tudor Hall School.
