Just been trying to find out more about this place, but really can’t much beyond agent’s details for this three-bedroom Oxford Preservation Trust-built house in Oxford, Oxfordshire. If you know more, add a comment below.
The agent describes this as an ‘obsessive renovation of an Oxford Preservation Trust-built Scandinavian influenced house’. Judging by the internal features, we would guess it was originally built in the 1960s, but we really are guessing.
The inside looks to be the selling point here, although the front elevations of others we have seen online suggests the outside isn’t too bad either, with just the rear elevation pictured on the listing. Fair to say that the outside is fairly unassuming though, nothing like the inside. That’s a gem and a credit to the people doing the renovation. Clean, bright, open and with fixtures consistent with the midcentury feel of the surrounding. Certainly no museum though, this is the kind of clean design that will appeal to a wide range of potential buyers.
Regarding layout, an entrance porch leads into an inner hallway off with refitted cloak room. The hall opens into a wide dining area overlooking the rear garden, which in turn leads to the living room with full-height vaulted ceiling overhead, exposed timber stairs and windows to three sides. There is also a door to a terrace, a wood burner in the fireplace and the original parquet oak floor. The kitchen is also on this floor, with hand-made bespoke stainless steel units and shelves plus utility room and a door to the side leading into a small paved courtyard. Bedroom three finishes off the ground floor space.
Head upstairs via that impressive feature stairway and you’ll find the main bedroom (18 feet in length), a smaller second bedroom and bathroom. Outside is a rear garden, a paved courtyard, a ‘sun trap’ terrace, a double garage with power and light and a drive.
If that appeals, the guide price is £495,000.
