A substantial and west facing Edwardian house requiring some updating, offering spacious accommodation and quietly situated in a prestigious side-road.
SITUATION AND LOCATION
Charlbury Road is situated in the heart of the
much-favoured residential area of central North Oxford and the North Oxford Victorian Conservation area. It is a prestigious side road with little through-traffic.
The University Parks and the River Cherwell are within a few minutes walk away and the city centre is approximately one mile. Within a 15-minute walk is the local centre of Summertown with a good range of shops including Marks and Spencers and the Oxfordshire Nuffield health and racquets club. Charlbury Road is very well positioned for Oxford’s excellent range of schools with the Dragon, Oxford
High School and its preparatory school Greycoats, all within easy walking distance. Other highly regarded schools, including St Edwards, Magdalen, Headington Girls School, Lynams, The Squirrel and New College, are also within easy reach. Regular bus routes on the Banbury Road connect with the city centre and the Oxford train station (London
Paddington approximately 60 minutes) and the Oxford Parkway(London Marylebone approximately 60 minutes). The A34 and M40 are readily accessible.
No 14 is a substantial detached Edwardian house built in 1906 and designed by J R Symm. The house is typical of its era and retains many of its period features including elegant and spacious rooms with high ceilings, cornicing and large bay windows. The property is set back from the road in a wide plot with a gravelled parking and side access to the rear garden and scope (subject to planning and conservation area consent) for further extension of the property. The rear garden, largely enclosed by the original brick wall, faces west and includes areas of lawn interspersed by mature shrubs and flowering borders.
