SITUATION AND LOCATION
103 Banbury is a fine example of the work of the Architect H W Moore who was responsible, with his uncle William Wilkinson, for the design and construction of much of North Oxford. This most attractive apartment, on the ground floor of the house, retains many original rooms with fine proportions and high ceilings and stands in mature and beautifully kept gardens on the west side of Banbury Road between St Margaret's Road and Rawlinson Road in the North Oxford Conservation area.
The University Parks and the River Cherwell are within close walking distance. 103 Banbury Road is very well positioned for North Parade and the City centre is close by. The local suburb of Summertown, with a good range of shops and amenities, including Marks and Spencers and The Oxfordshire Health and Racquets Club is approximately one mile. Oxford's excellent range of schools with the Dragon, Oxford High School, Wychwood and Greycoats are all within a 5 minute walk. Other highly regarded schools including Magdalen, Headington Girls School, New College School, Lynehams and St Edwards are also within easy reach. The Banbury Road is well served by a number of regular bus routes, which connect to the centre, the city centre train station (London Paddington approximately 60 minutes) and Oxford parkway for London Marylebone (approximately 58 minutes) and the John Radcliff Hospital. The A34 and M40 are readily accessible.
103 Banbury Road is a fine example of a substantial, late Victorian family house built of red brick under a tile roof with stone mullioned bay windows, gables and a turret. The house was converted and extended in 1986 into 8 luxury apartments. Flats 1 and 2 have been combined to encompass the majority of the ground floor of the house. They offer unusually spacious and flexible accommodation, arranged in 2 wings, which can function either independently or together. A floor plan is included within the brochure.
The main entrance gives access to a well proportioned Hall, with large arch opening onto the splendid Drawing Room with its high ceilings, traditional cornices, oak floor and an early Victorian white marble fireplace adapted for gas. In addition a full height, west facing, bay window overlooks the private terrace and garden beyond.
Off the Hall there is a Cloakroom and to the front of the property are two exceptionally handsome Bedrooms and a Family Bathroom. The Master Bedroom has a large bay window, facing east, and a range of built in wardrobes. Bedroom 2 has a matching bay window and a further built in double wardrobe.
Leading from the Hall is the Kitchen with a glazed door and side light open onto the terrace which runs the full width of the apartment. Leading past the Utility Room one enters the second wing of the apartment, into the Dining Room with south facing windows, folding doors to hallway and steps leading up to a galleried landing fitted with ample bookshelves, off which is Bedroom 3 with windows facing west overlooking the gardens. This double bedroom has an en suite shower room with tiled shower cubicle, WC and wash hand basin.
Steps lead down from the Dining Room to a spacious Sitting/ Family Room with further fitted bookshelves and glazed door leading onto a further private terrace which links to the communal garden, main terrace and access to the front of the house.
The side front door leads into a Hall with folding doors to the Dining Room, door to 2nd Family Bathroom and further door to Inner Hallway with deep storage cupboard. Off the Inner Hallway doors lead to the Study with window to side and Bedroom 4 with windows to front.
To the front of the property there is a handsome Entrance Porch and Communal Hall approached via a communal parking area where the flat has two allocated parking spaces.
To the rear of the property there is a private, terraced garden consisting of several carefully planted compartments with raised beds and two patios. The garden is stocked with a choice range of bulbs, flowering plants, shrubs and climbers with many mature and interesting plants.
The communal garden is located directly behind the private garden and consists of a large central lawn surrounded by well kept borders. This garden is similarly stocked with an unusual range of good plants.
