Full description

DESCRIPTION Fyfield Road is situated in the heart of the much favoured residential area of Norham Manor in Central North Oxford and the North Oxford Victorian Conservation area. It is a quiet, prestigious side road with little through-traffic and the added charm of a gentle chime from Lady Margaret Hall's church bells at the far end of Fyfield Road by University Parks.
The property is a handsome double fronted detached family home built over three floors. The house offers a wealth of period detail with cornicing, fireplaces, deep sash windows and original wooden floors. The principle reception rooms are superbly proportioned. To the ground floor there are three main reception rooms and study with two conservatories to the rear overlooking the garden. The kitchen / breakfast room with double cream Aga has a door to the garden and there are two utility rooms and a cloakroom.
The first floor offers a Master bedroom with en suite bathroom / dressing room and two further double bedrooms and bathroom. The second floor has three double bedrooms, one with an en suite bathroom and a further bathroom and kitchenette.
Of particular note is the detached garage with studio above (currently used as a gym) which sits behind the house and is accessed from Norham Road. There is a walled rear garden which is principally laid to lawn with well stocked flower and shrub borders.
 

SITUATION Situated in Fyfield Road providing immediate access to all the day to day shopping facilities of North Parade and only a short distance away both Summertown and Walton Street offering supermarkets, bars, restaurants, a cinema and a doctors surgery. Slightly further afield, although still within walking distance are the more comprehensive amenities of Oxford City Centre. The Woodstock and Banbury roads join directly to the Oxford ring road connecting to the A40 and M40 to London. The Oxford rail station has regular services directly to London Paddington.
The University Parks and the River Cherwell are within a few minutes' walk and the city centre is approximately one mile. There is also good access to all the day to day shopping facilities of Summertown including Marks & Spencer, bars and restaurants and the popular Virgin Oxfordshire Health and Racquets Club. Fyfield Road is very well positioned for Oxford's excellent range of schools with the Dragon, Oxford High School, St Edwards, Magdalen, Headington Girls School, Lynams, Wychwood and Cherwell School all within easy reach. The Woodstock and Banbury roads join directly to the Oxford ring road connecting to the A40 and M40 to London. The Oxford rail station has regular services directly to London Paddington (approx. 60 mins).
