WITH January heralding the new year, you may think it is time for a change — and if that extends to property, this considerable slice of real estate could shake things up nicely.
If you’re hankering after a property you can put your own stamp on, Oakfield House, in Station Road, Wootton Bridge, could be for you.
Oakfield House is a grand Edwardian property, set in approximately nine acres of land. Before you’ve even set foot inside, the outside is mesmerising — classic combination of red brick with black and white accents.
This property, however, is in need of substantial work and repairs but due to its size and location, it presents a great opportunity for the right buyer. 
Whether it’s kept as six to seven bedsits and apartments in its current configuration, or sub-divided to form two or three homes or apartments, there are indeed several options. Alternatively, a single majestic home could be the order of the day
It has a host of original features, including high ceilings, ornate coving, original doors and flooring,  feature fireplaces, plus box bay and large windows that fill the rooms with natural light.
Within the main property, there are several kitchen areas and bathrooms that served the bedsits. There are three floors to the property with the second floor accessed by its own staircase from the first floor and leading to a large bedroom and bathroom.
Without prescribing titles to rooms that may not be relevant, as it stands there are six bedrooms on the first floor as well as three lounges, two kitchens and bathroom facilities. On the ground floor, within the main property, there is a large entrance hall, two generous lounges, two shower rooms, a bedroom and a store room.
The furnished wing of the property on the ground floor consists of a huge bedroom, beautiful lounge with a stunning fireplace, conservatory with a mosaic floor, second bedroom with recessed bookshelves, bathroom, bright kitchen, dining room and store room. 
There is also a workshop store, which connects to a covered courtyard.
