Parklands Manor is a rare new development located in the charming Oxfordshire village of Besselsleigh. This exclusive new modern country estate is home to just 44 one and two-bedroom apartments, and three, four and five-bedroom houses. Set on the site of a former 140-year-old Victorian manor house and school – and surrounded by circa.

23.5 acres of private parkland – Parklands Manor mixes the thoughtful restoration and conversation of a historic property with sensitively designed new homes – all of which are in keeping with its bucolic setting.

All properties are designed to Millgate’s uncompromising standards and offer a peerless level of specification and attention to detail, with classic yet contemporary design and high-quality finishes.

Plot 39 at Parklands Manor is a stylish two-bedroom apartment set in the former Victorian-era manor house, furnished by Alexander James Interiors. With a brief to create an interior that complemented the heritage architecture of the manor house while also building upon the local area, the interior design studio created an interior concept that is rich in country style and décor.

A host of bespoke-designed pieces feature throughout – including curtains, seating and headboards - Alexander James has created a show apartment as unique as the building in which it sits. A soft, neutral colour palette acts as the ideal base for splashes of colour including coral and blush pink, while rich materials and textures such as velvet, fringing and stud detailing marry luxury with the more homely feel desired by prospective buyers.
