Beautiful family home arranged over three floors with stunning features positioned in an elevated c. half acre plot on a discrete yet accessible side road on the edge of the city. Upon entering the property, you are greeted by an incredible expansive galleried reception hall with large glass windows allowing wonderful levels of natural light to stream into the ground and first floors that overlook the front garden. The previous owners had carried out extensive works to the property and substantial remodelling on the garden with great attention paid to materials and joinery throughout. As well as practical features such as a well laid out Cotteswood kitchen/breakfast room, ground floor self-contained accommodation with private access and double good-sized aspect sitting room with separate dining room the property further benefits from features such as an impressively sized master suite and ample storage. A spiral staircase turns up to the second floor to reveal a tranquil reading room with lovely views. The property was named 'Belvedere', this is defined as 'a building, or architectural feature of a building, designed and situated to look out upon a pleasing scene' which relates to the top floor reading room.

To the rear of the property is a patio area and large landscaped rear garden whilst to the front is ample off street parking for several vehicles and in out driveway with an attached double garage.

Ideally located for Oxford City and local well regarded schools including Chandlings, The Manor, St Helen and St Katherine, Magdalen College School, Radley College, Cothill, Our Lady's Abingdon and Abingdon School. This popular area is well served by an array of facilities including a shopping centre, doctors surgery, Oxford Brookes Harcourt Hill Sports Centre (gym, squash, swimming etc at discounted rates) and dental surgeries, library and bank, as well as the Waitrose store on Botley Road. By using the public footpath / bridleway at the top of Harcourt Hill easy access is available to the beautiful country walks to (amongst others) Boars Hill, Wootton, Cumnor, the 'secret' Chilswell Valley and Jarn Mound.
