Paradise Street is a small side street running behind the castle mound linking St Thomas Street and Castle Street. Located in the heart of the City, it is conveniently located for the railway and bus stations.
These attractive buildings are situated in the Central (University and City) Conservation Area on the south side of the street at its eastern end adjacent to the Jolly Farmer and close to the Westgate Shopping Centre and car park. To the rear of the site are Critchley's offices.
Mentioned in Pevsner's Authoritative Work "Buildings of England", Greyfriars in Paradise Street are historic freehold properties currently owned by Cherwell College, a Tutorial College founded in 1972.
The Master's Lodgings is the administrative centre of the college. Dating from the late 17th century and Listed Grade II*, it is a beautiful three storey building with basement and many original features including windows, panelling, a most impressive staircase and attractive reception rooms with fireplaces. Built in 1700 and Listed Grade II, Cloisters, provides a number of rooms for teaching, tutorials, seminars, a science laboratory and offices. The properties are separated by a central open courtyard with a fountain providing a secluded setting hidden by a linking wall. Whilst currently used as a college, the property would suit conversion back into residential use (as originally designed and built) and make a delightful well-proportioned elegant home within secure gardens/courtyard setting, subject to planning consent.
