For a couple of reasons, The White House 1930s art deco property in Oxford, Oxfordshire, spotted by Clive Kelly, puts us in mind of the deco place we featured yesterday.
Vastly different designs, but like the one yesterday in Frinton, this one has a stunning period exterior, renovated to a very high standard, coupled with an interior that you’ll love or hate. One that has undergone some serious investment though, without question. The agent says the house has been ‘sympathetically improved and extended’ by the present owners who have sourced high quality materials and fittings throughout. Good work on the extension, you can only guess the join. Very much in keeping with the original build.
As we mentioned, the inside is luxurious, perhaps a little too much for some. But once again, you really should look past the fittings and decor and look at an impressive structure. Enter into a large reception hall with polished chequer board, black and white marble flooring, which leads to an kitchen/breakfast room, which in turn leads to the dining room and utility room. Step down to the dual-aspect family room with plantation shutters and wood burner, opening to the adjoining decking area and rear garden. There’s also a sitting room with wood burner, along with a games room.
Head upstairs and you’ll find a large master bedroom with en-suite and balcony, a guest bedroom with en-suite overlooking the garden, two further bedrooms (one with balcony) and a family bathroom, with further steps taking you up a level and to two double bedrooms and a bathroom, finished off with a south west facing roof terrace which has views towards Oxford itself.
Outside space includes remote opening ‘sunburst’ gates, a block paved driveway, a double garage and significant gardens. The house sits on a plot covering around a third of an acre.
If you want to be the next owner, the price is £1,650,000.
