  • Detached House

Mahana is a magnificent opportunity to create a spectacular family home in a peaceful location tucked away towards to the end of Lincombe Lane - one of Boars Hill's most desirable roads. Planning has been granted for a substantial home, circa 11,000 sq. ft. with full leisure complex including both indoor and outdoor pools. The property has been designed with the outdoors in mind and they certainly make the most of this exceptional location.

The site is currently occupied by a 1960s detached property and full planning has been granted (P12/V2699/HH, P10/V2237 and P10/VO516). Although the planning was awarded a number of years ago, the footings have been put in place to ensure the project can continue at your own pace. Mahana is an opportunity to build your own home without having the often challenging task of going through the planning process yourselves - it's all ready to go.

The property has been cleverly designed to allow open plan living whilst also providing five individual reception rooms. A double-height fully glazed hallway, with views across the west facing lawn, allows seamless transition between these spaces. All of the principal reception rooms have floor to ceiling windows making the most of both the views and also the natural light. The family room and main living room also have sliding doors opening on the main raised terrace. The kitchen has been brilliantly designed with fully retractable sliding doors on all exterior walls opening on to a central courtyard seamlessly bringing the outside in. This offers potential for an un-rivalled entertaining space. The kitchen flows directly into a formal dining area which is to the front of the ground floor.

The lower ground floor has been designed to allow for a full leisure suite with gymnasium, indoor swimming pool, sauna and steam room. The synergy between the inside and the outdoors continues with full sliding doors allowing direct access from the leisure suite to the outdoor pool and Jacuzzi.

The master suite has the potential to be spectacular with en-suite bathroom, dressing room and sliding doors onto the west facing terrace and balcony with superb countryside views. A private roof-top terrace is also accessible. The current owners designed a glass dual aspect fireplace separating apart the master bathroom from the dressing area. The fire was to be set at a height in line with the top of the bath and so when lit in the evening it would provide ambience, light and warmth to both rooms. There are four further large bedrooms, all with en-suites, perfect for a growing family. Three of these bedrooms also have direct access on to private terraces making the most of the stunning views.

Mahana sits in a plot of around one acre, with sweeping 'horseshoe' drive to the front. There is a triple garage with laundry room and cloakroom alongside two further bedrooms and a bathroom, ideal for staff or visitors. The site is incredibly private and the no-through road creates a peaceful location. A central dual-level terrace allows access to the west facing rear garden.

Mahana sits in a commanding position on Lincombe Lane, a no-through road. Boars Hill is well known within Oxfordshire as a quiet, safe and private area and is highly recommended for families as an excellent base within easy reach of the world-famous city of Oxford. Surrounded by scenic walks including those through neighbouring woodlands, Mahana is perfectly situated to enjoy the best of countryside living. Oxford is around four miles away and offers two mainline stations with direct trains to both London Paddington and London Marylebone as well as high-end shopping in the newly opened Westgate, home to prestigious global brands and rooftop bars and restaurants. The nearby village of Sunningwell has a well-regarded public house, The Flowing Well, and Abingdon-on-Thames is around four miles away and offers multiple supermarkets and other amenities for your day-to-day needs.
