Tucked away on a secluded no-through road this distinctive property offers discerning homebuyers the opportunity to acquire a spacious family home that is conveniently located for the schools and amenities of central Headington, while yet only a short walk from the open spaces of Shotover Park.
Although of modern construction, numerous decorative elements in the external brickwork contribute to a sense of tradition and craftsmanship. Inside, the house has a light-filled, elegant and contemporary feel throughout, with tiled and engineered hardwood floors, and a range of stylish fixtures and fittings. Entering the spacious entrance hall one immediately feels the sense of quiet calm that characterizes the property. On the right is a lovely dual-aspect sitting room with log-burner and sliding doors opening on to the terrace; to the left is the study, and the downstairs cloakroom. To the rear of the property is the kitchen with breakfast bar, and adjoining dining room, both of which benefit from underfloor heating. Adjacent to the kitchen is the utility room with a ‘stable’ door leading out to the garden.
From the hallway an impressive staircase leads to the upstairs rooms, which comprise six bedrooms all with ample storage, and the family bathroom. Two of the bedrooms have en suite shower rooms, including the impressive master bedroom suite with its feature ‘porthole’ windows, that also boasts a separate dressing room. A second ‘paddle’ staircase leads from the upper corridor to an attic playroom/storage area.
Outside there is parking for several vehicles on the gravelled forecourt. The integral garage/workshop can also accommodate one vehicle. Access to the rear of the house is gained through iron gates via a vaulted walkway, which leads to the delightful and well-tended rear garden and terrace.
Headington is one of the most sought-after districts of Oxford, with a number of outstanding schools, a bustling high street offering a range of shops and restaurants, as well as numerous parks, a golf course and the nearby Shotover Park itself with close to 300 acres of woodland and open spaces. At the heart of Headington is the university hospital complex, which includes the John Radcliffe Infirmary, Churchill and Nuffield Hospitals; the main campus of Oxford Brookes University is also close by. There are excellent transport links into the city centre and being on the Eastern edge of the city with ready access to the ring road, Headington is also ideally located for those needing convenient links to the M40 and wider road network.
