Dating back to 1883 and built to a design by renowned architects, Wilkinson & Moore, the property is arranged over 4 floors providing 1824 square feet of spacious accommodation with stripped wooden floors, fire places and sash windows. The property has been extended to provide a wonderful living space on the upper ground floor which flows from a sitting room at the front through to a well appointed kitchen breakfast room and wood frame garden room at the rear. In the lower ground floor is a basement which is in part converted and could be completed to create a useful space as office or additional bedroom. The first floor of the house is occupied by 3 bedrooms and a family bathroom, and the top floor is a wonderful main bedroom with en suite shower room, a range of integrated storage and a vaulted ceiling. The house is set within a terrace with gardens bounded by a wall to the front with anchors for securing bicycles, and at the rear is an enclosed rear garden which is mainly laid to lawn.

Southmoor Road, formerly part of the estate of St Johns College, is located within the conservation area of North Oxford. The area boasts a wealth of conveniences within easy reach hence its popularity. The city centre and Jericho are a nearby, with Jericho offering an eclectic mix of bars and restaurants. The local gastro pub, The Anchor, comes highly recommended for wining and dining and the Hayfield Deli provides a selection of Mediterranean and eastern cuisine, whilst also stocking a wide variety of organic food, basic staples and household essentials. The local schools are excellent and include St Phillip and S. James', St Aloysius, St Barnabas, the Dragon, The High, St Edwards, Lynams, Leckford Place and Wychwood School all close by. A childrens' playground and football field are seven hundred yards from the house. A few minutes away are the unique rural amenities of Port Meadow, a local Nature Reserve, the River Thames and the Oxford Canal with extensive footpaths to the north and south, and a direct cycle/pedestrian route to the train station. Summertown is a short distance and provides a good range of major supermarkets including a Marks & Spencers Food Store.
