South Oxford townhouse in extensive landscaped grounds

The house is in the landscaped grounds of a beautifully converted 19th century hospital known as St George’s Manor. It is very peaceful and far from any busy roads – ideal for a family with a small child or a pet.
The house is a 20-minute bus or cycle ride from the city centre and the university, and within walking distance of the Oxford Science Park. It has a large kitchen with a dining table that seats 8 people, a living room, one master bedroom with en-suite shower room, one family bathroom, one single bedroom and a study with a sofa which folds down into a comfortable double futon. There is a large shared lawn in front of the house where children can play and families can enjoy the spring and summer sun. Parking spaces are provided within the grounds.
The "Manor" residents form a friendly community of like-minded people, so there are plenty of opportunities to meet new friends and neighbours.
The house is a ten-minute walk from a large supermarket and pharmacy, and from the local primary school. Located on the southern edge of Oxford, it is a perfect starting point for walks or cycle rides along the river and into the local countryside. Tenants are welcome to use the adult bikes that come with the house.

About Me
I have recently returned to freelance translation after working for 13 years at the French Institute for Demographic Studies (INED) one of Europe's leading centres for population studies, where I was responsible for the English-language versions of our academic journal Population, our monthly bulletin Population and Societies and the INED Population Studies book series published by Springer. I have lived in France for more than 30 years now, but was born and raised near Oxford, where I have my second home. My French husband and I are keen travellers and home exchangers (4 very successful exchanges in US, Singapore, UK and Iceland). Though we use our Oxford home in the summer, we would love to fill it with life by making it available during the academic year.

We stayed at this beautiful Oxford home for three months APril - July 2018. Catriona was easy to communicate with and provided everything we needed to settle in. The house was wonderful. The grounds are beautiful and make a great place with kids. The house has everything you need for a long term stay and we loved our stay, Excellent Carmen 7/9/2020 8:06:00 PM
