Highfield is a substantial detached house built in 1914, following the acquisition of land by All Saints Church. It is understood that the property was built using funds from Queen Anne's Bounty.

Whilst offering scope for improvement the accommodation is both well laid out and well proportioned.

There is an inherent character with many rooms exhibiting fireplaces, picture rails and sash windows reminiscent of the age of construction. The ground floor provides four generous reception rooms, in addition to a kitchen, cloakroom and rear lobby/ utility room. There are five bedrooms to the first floor with a family bathroom and a staircase rising to the loft.


The property sits towards the front of its plot which extends to approximately half an acre. There is a vehicular access from the road on the left of the plot which leads to a driveway and a single garage. The extensive rear garden has a number of mature trees.


The Vendors are the Oxford Diocesan Board of Finance. Please note that the sale will be subject to the vendor's usual covenants and obligations. The purchaser will be required to obtain the consent of the post office and council to rename the property and may not use Rectory or Vicarage within the new name. Furthermore, the sale will be subject to covenants preventing religious and political use or nuisance, disturbing divine worship, and the plot may not be used for anything other than a single private dwelling house. The plot will be sold with an overage on future development. If development takes place under the Town and Country Planning (general permitted development) (England) Order 2015 Class or any subsequent act or change to the regulations, then this will be a trigger event for overage. This overage will be effective in perpetuity from the date of completion of the sale and will be payable on the grant of planning permission (or disposal with planning permission). The amount payable will be 50% of the increase in value resulting from that consent. That said, the vendors understand that the purchasers will want to refurbish and extend the existing dwelling or consider its replacement with a new single dwelling house, and they will allow maximum flexibility in this regard.

It should be noted that the property was nominated as a locally listed building under Oxford's Heritage Asset Register.
