An elegant town house on the western side of this highly desired side road of Walton Manor.

Built in 1886 to a handsome design with origins of Italianate architecture the property retains much of its original charm with original fireplaces, floor boards, sash windows and magnificent high ceilings. To the front is a bay window over the first three floors as well as another bay window on the northern face of the house which affords a charming recess and a wealth of natural light through the hall and landing areas.

The accommodation is arranged over four floors and provides a great deal of versatility. The entrance hall is located on the upper ground floor and leads to a drawing room and kitchen/breakfast room and out onto a veranda looking out over the rear garden. The lower ground floor has two rooms as well as a bathroom and a boiler room, and a door leading out to the side passage. The first floor provides two wonderful bedrooms one of which has an en suite shower room. There is also a WC on the half landing.

The top floor is as well proportioned as the rest of the house with high ceilings and fireplaces in both bedrooms. The back room looks west and has a wonderful view towards Wytham Woods. There is also a family bathroom on this floor. The house is set on the western side of the road and so enjoys the preferred aspect in the rear garden which is bounded by a wall to three sides with mature trees and borders that provide privacy and shelter.

Warnborough Road is located in Walton Manor and was originally owned by St John's College, Oxford and houses in the road were first leased by the college between 1877 and 1896. At the southern end of the road is Leckford Road and at the northern end Farndon Road, two roads that lead west off Woodstock Road, which is parallel to Warnborough Road, as such there is minimal traffic flow. It is in a conservation area flanked to the west by Port Meadow and the University Park to the east. Central North Oxford, as it is known, is the most sought after area within the historic city. Oxford is extremely well served and the house is close to the shops and restaurants of North parade and Walton Street. The city is famed for its schooling, the house is within the catchment area for the popular primary school St Philip and St James and close to the Dragon, Oxford High, Leckford Place, St. Edwards and Magdalen College School to name a few. Summertown, to the north, gives a good range of shops including many of the major supermarkets.
