Brambles was built in 1939 and is a much loved home; as can be seen from the floor plans the generous principal rooms are accessed from a central hall and galleried landing. Features include original Parquet flooring in the hall, dining room and music room. There is new oak flooring (partially heated underfloor) in the extended sitting room which has French doors leading to the terrace and garden. The sitting room has a gas fire and there is an open fire in the dining room. The kitchen is well laid out and the adjacent study/breakfast room could be a playroom. The house is double glazed, has been re-wired, and has gas fired central heating, the Worcester boiler was installed in 2009. The house is good for the home worker - there is a lovely first floor office into an oriel style bay window over-looking the drive. The large and well-appointed Summerhouse is currently used as a home office. The internal doors have beautifully made individual stained glass panels by Vital Peters, a well known Oxford artist.

Hinksey Hill is a one of the most sought after residential areas close to Oxford city centre, Brambles is located at the end of Spring Copse which is an appealing private road. The area is roughly equidistant from Oxford and Abingdon and both provide an extensive array of amenity. For day to day shopping there is a Waitrose in Abingdon and a Sainsbury's in nearby Heyford Hill (1.5 miles) there are a number of local shops in Wootton village (1.7 miles) including a Co-op, chemist and post office. Schooling is a major draw to the area and these include, Chandlings Manor, Cothill, Abingdon, Radley, St. Helens and St. Katharine's and The Manor, together with the Dragon, Oxford High School, Headington, St Edwards, Summerfields and Magdalen College School. Travel to Oxford is easy and there is a bus service from the Redbridge Park and Ride (1 mile).
Road links are good via the A34, the Oxford ring road, giving access to the M4 to the south and M40 to the north. There is a choice for the London commute by train; either from the new Oxford Parkway station to Marylebone or from Didcot Parkway to Paddington.
For sporting and leisure facilities there is the renowned Frilford Heath Golf Club, water sports on Farmoor Reservoir, both nearby, and a variety of gyms and health clubs in both Oxford and Abingdon. The area boasts an abundance of walks including woodland paths brimming with bluebells in May. The gardens at Brambles back onto, and have direct access to, historic Bagley Wood.

The gardens and grounds are a particular feature. The house is approached via a gravel drive which opens into a good sized turning circle providing ample parking. There is a lovely enclosed kitchen garden, with raised beds, a sitting out area and large green house. Adjoining the garage is a large workshop and climate controlled wine cellar. To the rear of the house there is a wide, southerly facing terrace, and gardens beyond. The formal gardens are beautifully laid-out with a central lawn surrounded by specimen trees and shrubs, there is also a productive orchard. Towards the end of the land there is a hard tennis court in very good order with a wild flower meadow beyond running up to the woodland to which there is a gate.
