Property description

Situated on a generous plot within a leafy Central North Oxford suburb, 20 Northmoor Road is a substantial Grade II listed family home over two floors providing almost 4,000 sq. ft. of accommodation. The property was built in 1924 and awarded Grade II listed status in 2004 due to the fact that JRR Tolkien lived in the property throughout the 1930s and 40s.
Throughout the property, the rooms are well-proportioned and filled with natural light, enhanced by the high ceilings and large windows.
The property remains largely unaltered since it was built, and accommodation includes a generously sized reception hall with stairs rising to the first floor and provides access to the principal reception rooms. A 27 ft. drawing room benefits from triple aspect windows and double doors opening on to the garden. There are two further reception rooms, alongside a kitchen / breakfast room, downstairs shower room, walk-in larder, utility room and separate loo. Six good-sized bedrooms are available on the first floor, two with generously-sized en-suite bathrooms. A family bathroom with shower and roll-top bath can also be found.
Central North Oxford is the most sought-after part of the city and it is well served by the shops and restaurants of North Parade, Walton Manor and Jericho. Summertown with further amenities is around a ten minute walk away.
There are many different options for schooling including Oxford High, The Dragon and Wychwood School.
For transport links, the A40, A34 and M40 are within easy reach and the new Oxford Parkway train station is around two miles away.
