Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 5
The detached property, built in the early 20th Century, provides accommodation spread over two floors and set within 0.275 acres. The well-proportioned rooms have large windows which overlook the gardens to the front and the rear. There are plenty of original features including hard wood floors and sash windows. The property could be extended further (subject to the necessary planning consents) to increase the accommodation offered by the house, without a significant impact to the garden. Outside the property has parking for a number of cars at the front and a lovely west facing walled garden to the rear, predominantly laid to lawn with a large selection of planting including fig, various apple trees and a magnolia.

As a point of historical interest, Edward Elgar, perhaps England's greatest composer, rented the house and lived there in 1913. A letter recording the fact and signed by Elgar himself will be left in the house by the owner.

The property is in this most favoured side road set in the heart of the North Oxford Victorian Conservation Area. The property is situated just over one mile north of the city centre and approximately 0.8 miles from the amenities of Summertown. The local centres of North Parade and Summertown provide a good selection of everyday shops, doctors' and dentists' surgeries, public library, major banks and a leisure centre with swimming pool. Both Oxford and Oxford Parkway stations provide mainline rail links to London Paddington. The property is conveniently positioned for the Oxford schools, University Parks and the historic centre of this University city.
