This is a much loved family house with accommodation laid out over four floors currently configured with the lower ground floor being a self-contained flat having its own independent entrance. The house was enlarged early in its life to give more lateral space, which is rare for the area. The lay-out can be seen from the floor plans. The principal rooms have lovely proportions synonymous with the period; the ground floor reception rooms enjoy floor to ceiling sash windows with their original shutters, picture rails and cornicing and marble fire surrounds. The kitchen has a double aspect with French doors which lead onto a stone balcony which has steps down to the rear walled gardens. The entrance porch has two double doors with fan light above and stone flag flooring, the main hall has an impressive stair case off and a lovely arched side window giving light to the stairs and landings. Ground floor ceiling heights are about 10.5 feet. The bedrooms on the upper floors are all generous and well served by relatively modern, white bath/shower rooms as well as a first floor laundry. There is gas fired central heating, with two boilers, one in the laundry and the other in the flat. The flat works well as a self-contained unit but could be re-incorporated into the main house.
Park Town is located in the heart of the North Oxford Victorian Conservation Area. Although built in the mid 1850's it is the only road in the area Georgian in style. Approached from the Banbury Road it is a 'no through road' beautifully laid-out with a mix of detached and semi-detached villas and northern and southern 'crescents' which surround a beautiful communal garden with a 'terrace' at its eastern end. No. 35 is one of only eight of the semi-detached villas, which enjoy off-street parking and good size gardens almost furthest away from the relatively busier Banbury Road. Park Town is roughly equidistant between the City centre and Summertown, in the most popular and prestigious residential suburb. There is a regular bus service on the Banbury Road to the city centre and the historic University. Summertown has a good range of shops including many of the major supermarkets and banks together with numerous restaurants/coffee shops, and an array of independent outlets. One of the main draws to the location is the Oxford schooling the closest being the Dragon, which is only a few hundred meters from the house, other schools include Summerfields, Magdalen College School, Oxford High School, St Edwards, the Cherwell School and St Philip and St James Primary. Charming North Parade, with its popular pubs and restaurants is a short walk from the house, as is the University Park.
The front garden provides ample off-street parking, the gravel area is surrounded by well stocked boarders and there is access to the rear garden via a side bike store. To the rear steps descend from the balcony to a paved terrace, beyond this the garden is laid to lawn and walled, there is a further raised terrace at the end of the garden, the garden has a depth of about 95 feet.
