About

The house is in a wonderful location, only a five-minute bus ride or ten-minute cycle ride from the historic city centre and university, and within a few minutes' walk of the Thames nature park and National Trail. A supermarket (Tesco) is around the corner, and a superstore (Sainsburys) a short bike- or car-ride away. Beautiful Hinksey Park, with a playground, outdoor swimming pool, splash pad, fishing lake, a weekly farmers' market and tennis courts is also nearby. The house is within easy access to the ring road for trips to the Cotswolds, Chilterns or London, and has excellent bus connections to all parts of Oxford and to nearby towns. The house is a bright, elegantly finished terrace with 3 bedrooms, living room, dining room, large kitchen, 2 bathrooms (one including a bath, one a shower), an enclosed garden with fruit trees, berries, flowers, shed and bike shed, and off-street parking for two cars. It is recently renovated, with hand-scraped hardwood floors, bespoke kitchen, and many unique features, including a piano made by J.R.R. Tolkien's grandfather. The house includes all amenities, incl. induction stove, fan oven, microwave, washing machine, dryer, dishwasher, etc. There is fibre-optic high-speed internet with unlimited usage. The property is double-glazed throughout, with gas central heating. The bedrooms are a master bedroom (large double); a second large bedroom that can be made up as a double, a large single, or a bright and spacious study or family room; and a children's bedroom with bunk beds, which can also be used as a single bedroom. The house is in the catchment area of Cherwell and St Gregory the Great secondary schools, and of New Hinksey Primary School, with good connections to the European School in Culham and schools in Abingdon and Radley.
