      Built in 1892 to a design of HW Moore, this is an impressive and beautifully presented detached Victorian house which has been completely refurbished by the present owners. The generously proportioned, flexible accommodation is arranged mainly over three floors, together with a large basement and also a substantial attic. Many features have been carefully restored, such as sash windows, fireplaces and a striking stained glass window on the main landing. A feeling of light and space is enhanced by high ceilings and large windows throughout. A welcoming entrance hall opens to the principle reception rooms, which include a stunning drawing room with folding double doors opening to the dining room (creating a 40ft reception room). A contemporary Italian kitchen with under floor heating has doors directly onto the sheltered terrace and garden beyond. On the first floor, there are four bedrooms, three of which are en-suite. The second floor, with its additional private entrance and stairway, is currently arranged as a separate flat and provides three bedrooms, one en-suite, a further bathroom, sitting room and kitchen/breakfast room, but could easily be incorporated into the main house to offer additional accommodation.


      Outside
      To the front, the extensive gravelled area provides ample parking for numerous cars, with gated side access on one side of the property to the rear garden. The garden, thought to be one of the largest in North Oxford, faces in a westerly direction and is beautifully secluded. It enjoys a large terrace, bordered by Wisteria and Magnolia, leading to steps down to a hardwood decking area with provision to accommodate a hot tub or pool if desired. Further steps lead to the mature, walled garden which is laid to lawn and interspersed with trees and shrubs.

      At the end of the garden, there is a large studio measuring 36 ft x 13ft, with three sets of double doors opening out to the garden.
