One of the standout features of the property has to be the spacious refitted Open Plan Kitchen/Breakfast Room with its contemporary fitted kitchen and breakfast bar with French doors onto the rear garden with its excellent communication with the outdoor space making it ideal for when friends come around for drinks and a barbeque and ensures this space really comes into its own in the summertime.

Upstairs the high standard of finish continues with three bedrooms, two double bedrooms on the first floor together with a wonderfully well appointed refitted Bathroom and at the second floor a further attic bedroom or home office depending on how you prefer to use it.
Outside there is a pleasant private rear garden that benefits from not being overlooked and is laid to a graveled patio accessed from the kitchen and extends to a mulched lawn (that could be easily laid to turf or you could install artificial grass) and a useful timber shed for storage.

So, what particularly attracted you to the property when you bought it?
I like Victorian houses and this one stood out to me due to its peaceful cul-de-sac location.
How long have owned the property?
Since June 2021.
Briefly, can you tell me some of the things you love about living here?
a. When I bought the property it offered me the opportunity to design an interior that was to the quality I wanted whilst also making it more comfortable and usable with such things as the recently installed double glazed sash windows on the front, and there are double glazed units at the back, and easy to maintain floors to the ground floor with large format travertine floor tiles.
b. It is such a convenient location, as a working person everything is nearby; the train station, Herbies, my mechanic. Best Zushi restaurant in Oxfordshire. Dentist and Doctors in South Bar. Bannatynes for a swim and a sauna etc.
c. Great neighbours on both sides. Sue next door, Daniel and Alexander across the road. Everyone looks out for each other here.
d. I didn’t cut any corners on refurbishing the house as I wanted it to be comfortable for me, so some of the things I had done here were I had the timber floors insulated, newly plastered walls and installed sympathetic period style plaster ceiling cornices, the kitchen was totally refitted with designer granite stone worktops, new units and finished with top of the range appliances and I also really went to town on the Bathroom and made it as luxurious I could.
Why are you moving?
I’m off on a bit of an adventure and plan to move to Portugal.
What will you miss the most?
I grew up in the area, went to school in Bloxham, so it’s a very big part of my life. So, there is going to be an awful lot I will miss here.
