A charming and vibrant Georgian Town House which the Vendor believes dates back to the 1700s when the property was believed to have been originally inhabited by the employees of The Oxford University Press. Once used as a three bedroom property but now offered as a two bedroom home, the accommodation on the ground floor comprises; an enchanting and cosy sitting room with exposed original floor boards, character fireplace and original sash windows. From this delightful sitting room there are stairs rising to the first floor as well as steps down to the basement (which offers scope for refurbishment) and where there is still the original kitchen range. Moving from this front reception room towards the rear of the property there is a welcoming kitchen with a large bespoke window and brick fireplace. Steps then go down to an inner hall which provides a utility area and houses the 9 year old gas boiler. The family bathroom is at the rear of this attractive home and both the bathroom and kitchen benefit from stylish Spanish tiling. On the first floor there is a double bedroom with original fireplace plus a second comfortable sitting room which offers double aspect original sash windows, original wood and brick work and original fireplace. Stairs then lead to a second floor where there is a further double bedroom, original fireplace and alcove shelving. To the exterior of the property there is an easily maintained rear garden which is paved and provides a wonderful microclimate in which a variety of plants thrive. The front of the property boasts iron railings originally from Lucys Ironworks and one of the few railings in the area to escape the WWII reclamation.
The property is situated in a superb location in Jericho within walking distance of Port Meadow and offers easy access to the day to day shopping facilities of Walton Street including restaurants, bars and a cinema and also to the more comprehensive facilities of Oxford City Centre, University Departments and a range of schools for all ages. There are rail services to London Paddington in approximately one hour from Oxford mainline station and from the coach station at Gloucester Green there are frequent buses to London Victoria, Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted airports.
From the Central North Oxford office of James C. Penny, proceed South on Walton Street in the direction of the City Centre and the property will be found a little way along the road on the right hand side just past the Co-Operative Food Store.
