The house is situated in one of Oxford's prime residential side roads close to the city centre, University departments and the University Park. It is within walking distance to a number of schools including the Dragon, Wychwood and Christ Church Cathedral School.

The house has extensive accommodation over four floors with considerable period detail including leaded light windows, moulded ceilings to a number of the reception rooms and a fine stair case with stained glass windows incorporating scenes and characters from the works of William Shakespeare.
The principal reception rooms face south overlooking the garden. The house was built in 1866 for Henry Hammons, a bookseller in Oxford at the time, by the architect and builder Charles Buckeridge. It was later enlarged to incorporate a new dining room and staircase wing in 1895. The lower ground floor provides the utility room/boiler room and a further reception room with a secure door through to what could be a self-contained flat with separate access. This has two bedrooms, sitting room, kitchen, WC and shower room.
The garden lies to the south of the house and is mainly laid to lawn, bounded by a number of fine mature trees including a magnificent Copper Beech. It is approached from either side of the house or from the conservatory. At the side of the house is off street parking for two cars accessed by electric gates.
