About

Our Oxford home is available to rent while we take time out for a sabbatical. While we're ideally looking for tenants who would like to live here for a minimum of 6 months, we are flexible and potentially open to enquiries for shorter time periods. We are located in the Headington area of Oxford; walking distance to Brookes University, Churchill and Nuffield Orthapaedic Hospitals and Oxford University Old Road site. Other Oxford University Colleges and Departments are a short bus ride/cycle ride away, as is the John Radcliffe Hospital. We love where we live as it is situated in a green oasis yet within the city. Our quiet road has houses on one side only, so the front windows overlook gardens, a nature reserve and a golf course. Very friendly and community-minded area (neighbours actually speak to eachother! Also, there are opportunities to join in with local events and activities if desired). We have a variety of lovely local walks accessible right from the front door. There are also some great running routes and cycle tracks nearby - for example, the extensive Shotover Country Park is a ten-minute walk away. The house has two large bedrooms and one smaller one, with two living rooms downstairs (rear living room has french window access to small back garden, which has secure bike storage). There are two desks; we currently use one of the bedrooms as an office (alternatively one of the downstairs living rooms could be used for this if desired). Gas central heating throughout, plus a wood-burning stove in the front living room. We have a large garden over the road, beyond the rainbow fence visible in one of the photos (you can see the top third of the garden in the photo - second segment is woodland, last third a rare habitat bordering the local golf course). We have a Little Free Library next to our fence, which is well used by neighbours of all ages for swapping and sharing books. Suitable for a couple or a family. We have rented our house out twice before to visiting families, and it has worked really well.
