Substantial family home with history.
Built in 1924 and providing almost 4,000 sq ft of accommodation, the Grade II listed house was lived in by JRR Tolkien throughout the 30s and 40s. With generously proportioned rooms, high ceilings, double glazed windows and stripped pine doors throughout, the property offers plenty of space for family living and entertaining. The large entrance hall opens directly to the triple aspect drawing room with doors opening to the garden. There are two further reception rooms, and a large shower room leading off the corridor which opens to the good sized kitchen/breakfast room with its walk-in larder. Beyond the kitchen is a rear hall, boot room, utility room and cloakroom. The first floor offers a principal bedroom and guest bedroom, both with generous en suite bathrooms with separate showers. There are a further four bedrooms, large family bathroom with cast iron roll top bath and large linen cupboards.
Outside, the house sits back from the road in a generous front garden with ample parking and garage. The large rear and side gardens, mostly walled, are private and feature mature trees.

This classic home offers an exciting opportunity to anyone looking for easy access to North Oxfords schools. The unusually large garden is a real bonus too.Charles Elsmore-Wickens
