Guide price

Bedrooms: 6
Situated within a popular residential area with excellent access to the city centre and good schools is this substantial character home of more than 3200 sq ft, with accommodation arranged over three floors. Despite its central setting, the property feels quiet and removed from city life, with generous gardens to the front and rear.

The semi-detached property was built circa 1899 and has retained a wealth of character features, including period fireplaces, solid wood floors and doors and stained glass windows, which are beautifully complemented by more modern additions such as a partially-glazed sun room and a lovely kitchen to the rear with a vaulted ceiling and exposed timber trusses, also fitted with underfloor heating.

The accommodation is well laid out and offers four generous reception rooms, arranged around a welcoming entrance hall, including an office/snug, open plan formal sitting room with two fireplaces, a sun room and a kitchen/dining room to the rear which opens onto the garden. There is also built-in storage and a useful cloakroom with w.c. On the first floor there are three large double bedrooms and a family bath/shower room, with a similar layout repeated on the floor above but incorporating a smaller single room which would be ideal as a study or dressing room. There is a good amount of storage and a further cloakroom with w.c.


The property has a paved driveway to the front and benefits from off-road parking, with additional parking available on Chalfont Road (permit required). There are attractive trees and shrubs to the front providing a feeling of privacy while most of the garden is situated to the rear, including a good size lawn, mature trees at the rear boundary with a summerhouse and a patio area adjoining the house for outdoor entertaining.


Oxford, 'the City of Dreaming Spires' is world renowned for its university and architectural beauty and has been home to royalty and scholars for over 800 years.
