DESCRIPTION A well proportioned detached house dating back to c.1933 and situated in a secluded and magical c. third of an acre with a maze of pathways, dry stone walls, mature trees, extensive planting, a small pond favoured by the newts for which Shotover is an SSSI, a hill as tall as the house giving views clear across Oxford to Boars Hill and the Ridgeway, and at the top of that a 'hobbit house' built into the landscape. The property extends to c. 2356 sq ft and comprises, entrance hall, three reception rooms, kitchen/breakfast room, cloakroom, four first floor bedrooms, one with an ensuite shower room, family bathroom and a top floor master bedroom with ensuite bathroom. The property is approached via a block paved driveway leading to ample parking, secluded and established gardens and a garage/workshop. There is also the benefit of a games room/store on the first floor of the garage. The property is offered with the benefit of no onward chain. 

LOCATION At the eastern edge of Oxford, a couple of miles from the dreaming spires, but even closer to Oxford Brookes and the Nuffield, Churchill and JR hospitals, lies Old Road (signifying the old road to London) and Shotover Hill (where stagecoach passengers had to dismount and risk the highwaymen because with laden carriages, the hill was too much for the horses). There, marked by one of the old 'dogger' boulders (which legend has it were thrown at each other by the giants living either side of the hill - hence 'Shot over') lies Petergate. Petergate is a haven for a wide range of birdlife, with wrens nesting at the front, red kites nesting at the back (in a tree in Alexander Fleming's old garden, just behind) and countless others in between.
 

DIRECTIONS From The Plain, proceed along St Clements Street. Turn right into Morrell Avenue and continue to the top. Continue over in Warneford Lane and at the traffic lights at The Slade continue over into Old Road. Continue over the bridge and then first left and immediately right. Petergate will be found at the end on the left hand.
