Old Station House, designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel, is wonderfully evocative of the golden age of rail travel and is situated at the charming Culham Station opposite the grade 2 listed ticket office.
Four-square in design, mellow red brick under a slate roof with large paned sash windows, this typically Victorian Station Master’s House is both charming and characterful.
Tall ceilings, square rooms, detailed cornicing, picture rails, large four-pane sash windows, panelled wooden doors and polished quarry tiled floors all feature.
Both reception rooms are situated at the front of the house with the sitting room having been opened up from what was originally two rooms. Both fireplaces and doors are in place offering the opportunity to recreate two rooms creating greater flexibility for family living.
The kitchen/breakfast room lies at the rear of the house with east, south and northerly aspects. French doors open onto an east facing decking. A further door opens to a small traditional conservatory, which in turn opens to a paved terrace. Part painted wooden units sit beneath solid wooden worktops. The kitchen also features a walk-in pantry with a marble cold slab and Sandyford Classic Range cooker. A good sized utility room lies just off the kitchen.
Stairs rise to a galleried landing where there are four bedrooms, three with original cast iron fireplaces, a bathroom with shower over the bath and vanity unit, a separate toilet and an airing cupboard.
Approached through a white picket gate, the front garden is bordered by well stocked flower beds with bulbs, lavender, roses and quince and fig trees. The rear garden is mostly laid to lawn with a mature walnut tree and apple, pear and cherry trees. There is a large vegetable garden, a summerhouse and two terraces.
The double garage, with an inspection pit, is at the front of the property with an electric car charging point.
From Abingdon, travel east taking the A415 towards Dorchester- on-Thames . Continue for approximately three miles taking the third turning left, signposted Culham No 1 site onto Station Road. After 190 yds bear right towards Culham station. Old Station House is the second house on the right.
