An elegant and well proportioned four storey house in a pleasant and leafy North Oxford side road.

Built to a design by the renowned architect H W Moore in 1891 and with later remodelling the property has light and spacious rooms throughout. The house is approached by a driveway for several cars with a porch at the side of the house leading into a welcoming entrance hall with a staircase leading to both the lower and upper floors. To the front is a sunny drawing room with a bay window that reaches from floor to ceiling and at the rear a spacious and well equipped kitchen/dining room overlooking the rear garden. The lower ground floor, which is also light and well proportioned comprises a bedroom/study, laundry room boiler room and WC. On the first floor there are two spacious bedrooms a shower room and separate WC, and the top floor is arranged as three bedrooms and a bathroom. The house sits well within its grounds, set back from the pavement and with a mature and well stocked rear garden bounded by wall. There is a lawn with herbaceous borders to either side and some mature trees that provide good shelter and privacy. At the bottom of the garden there is a summerhouse and a potting shed with a paved area surrounding.

The property is situated in the heart of the North Oxford Conservation Area, arguably the most sought after area of the historic centre flanked by the River Cherwell and University Parks to the east, and the River Thames and Port Meadow to the west. The property is in proximity to the popular Oxford schools, and the local centre of Summertown provides a good range of everyday shops, doctors' and dentists' surgeries, gyms, library and an eclectic mix of cafes and restaurants. The local public houses and restaurants of Jericho are nearby as is the more local and reputable “The Anchor” gastro pub on the corner of Polstead and Hayfield Road. Access to the city centre is via the Woodstock Road upon which there is a regular and frequent bus service.
