  • Bedrooms: 5
Planning permission approved to remodel the existing house as well as replacment Passive House.

Detached house of 2,517 sq ft with a front extension that can be made into a self-contained annex, a double garage and a generous south west facing garden located in a peaceful cul-de-sac with provision for visitor parking, close to Lynams School (Dragon pre-prep) and Field House Montessori School, as well as excellent secondary schools. A short distance to Summertown.

The ground floor of the house provides a large living room/dining room that faces onto the garden, a kitchen, WC and cloakroom and further room that could be adapted for a variety of uses, built as a library and currently unheated. Upstairs there is a large main bedroom with large en suite, two more double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The ground floor extension to the front was built as a self-contained annex though currently integrated into the house; it could easily be restored to be an annex again.

Outside to the front is a driveway with a double garage. Side access leads to the wonderful west facing rear garden that measures approximately 120 feet in length with a summerhouse at the end. The garden was once a tennis court and the wire perimeter fence remains in place though the hard surface has been removed and replaced with topsoil (video available showing the work done).

The house is in full working order but in need of modernization. The size of the garden and the plot means there is excellent potential to extend and planning permission has been granted to demolish the existing house and replace with a PassivHaus - 20/01370/FUL.

Planning permission also approved for the existing dwelling to be remodelled 21/00793/FUL
