This is an extremely rare chance to acquire a charming mid-terrace period cottage in need of complete refurbishment. Retaining original features such as quarry tiled floor in the kitchen, cast iron fireplaces in the main bedrooms, and a staircase with finely detailed balustrade, it offers the potential to create a stunning home.
An entrance porch opens into the hallway, and then to a light and well-proportioned sitting room. From there, a door leads through to a rear hallway giving access to the kitchen and the downstairs bathroom. At the end of the hallway is the back door, opening on to the delightful East-facing rear garden, (5.9m wide x 12.5m long) which contains a charming and useful outbuilding and a beautiful apple tree which in season delivers a heavy crop of bright red fruits.
Upstairs are three good-sized bedrooms, two of which retain the original cast-iron fire surrounds, all benefitting from large windows that flood the rooms with light.
The property requires complete renovation throughout, and prospective applicants are advised that this will be a significant undertaking. However, offering as it does the potential to remodel and extend to create additional living space, this house is a truly exceptional opportunity not to be missed. Early viewing is recommended.Poplar Road is a pleasant no-through-road just moments from the amenities of central Botley at Westway Place, which include a bank, post office, library, supermarkets and convenience stores, florist, dry cleaner, newsagent, doctors' surgery, dentist, optician, and vet. It is ideally located for convenient access to the rail station and city centre, and the Botley Interchange of the Oxford ring road, which gives immediate access to the A34, A420 and the wider road and motorway network, is also close by. Botley is well-served by a number of excellent primary schools, with Botley Primary School only a short 250m walk away, and the highly-rated Matthew Arnold secondary school is also close by. Local residents may also use the facilities of the Oxford Brookes University sports centre.
