An elegant Victorian semi-detached family home with an abundance of character and charm. The property, which was built in 1896, is arranged over four floors and has been restored and re-designed with exemplary care and attention to detail by the present owners.
During the period of extensive renovation, the owners were careful to retain many of the period details such as sash windows, cornicing, original doors and floorboards. The sympathetic refurbishment has also successfully added to the character of the property enhancing the sense of space and light to the well proportioned rooms. The property also benefits from a pleasant, east facing garden with two side entrances, a double detached garage and additional parking at the front and rear. The current owners are in the process of securing planning permission to replace the garage with a two floor annex.
The property which is set back from the road has accommodation that is arranged as two reception rooms, four to five bedrooms, a large kitchen, a utility room, two walk in pantries and three bathrooms. Outside there is a workshop and a detached double garage accessed from Thorncliffe Road via a driveway with space for two additional cars.
The house is situated north of the city centre and a few minutes' walk from the Summertown shops. Summertown has range of independent shops, a large Marks and Spencer Food Hall, several restaurants and coffee bars, artisan bakers, a public library and a soon to be opened branch of Daunt Books.
The house is within the catchment area of the Cherwell Secondary School (Ofsted rated outstanding) and close to highly regarded primaries (including St Philip and St James, St Aloysius, and Oxford High Preparatory School) and pre-school nurseries. Nearby are several excellent independent schools including St Edward's and the Dragon School. It is a few minutes' walk from the Oxford Canal and a stone's throw from Port Meadow. The property is five minutes' drive from the A40, the A44 and the ring road that connects to the M40 to London and Birmingham. Oxford Parkway train station is conveniently located nearby.
