A well presented three bedroom Victorian-period home situated on the south side of this sought-after street in Sunnymead - or 'Soapsud Island' - near Summertown, providing excellent access to a wide range of shops, cafes, restaurants and other amenities, as well as being within easy reach of a number of local schools, including the Cherwell School (now Cherwell Academy) and the new Swan School. As well as this, Oxford Parkway is just 2 miles away for frequent direct trains to London Marylebone.
The front door opens into an entrance hallway with stairs to the first floor. The Living Room and Dining Room have been knocked through to form an open living space that nevertheless feels like two distinct areas, with Living Room to the front benefiting from a feature fireplace and bay window with double glazed wooden sash windows, and a Dining Room benefiting from built-in cupboards as well as cupboard under the stairs. There is a modern and attractive Kitchen at the rear with a range of integrated appliances including cooker, hob and dishwasher, with an external door to the patio and rear garden.
On the first floor are two good sized bedrooms, both of which feature ornamental original fireplaces. The Bathroom has been modernised and offers an attractive and stylish white suite including bath with shower over, wc with hidden cistern and hand wash basin. There is a large cupboard for laundry and linen that once housed the hot water cylinder prior to upgrading of the central heating system and the installation of the modern combination boiler.
Stairs lead to the loft conversion second floor, which provides a further double bedroom with built in storage (accessing eaves storage), Juliet Balcony overlooking the south facing garden, and an en-suite shower room including shower cubicle, wash basin and wc.
Outside the property there is a small front garden enclosed by wall and fence, and to the rear a long south facing garden, featuring lawn and patio, with a range of planted beds and borders, and trees including Plum, Apple and Magnolia. The garden is enclosed by fencing.
The property is located in Harpes Road, part of the Sunnymead area of North Oxford, also once known as 'Soap-Sud Island' after the laundry-based cottage-industries that flourished in the area. Summertown as a conurbation is just one street to the south, and its range of shops, cafes, bars, restaurants and other facilities (library, doctors, leisure centre, theatre... et cetera) is a few minutes walk. The city centre is easily accessed by frequent buses along the nearby Banbury Road, as is the Oxford Parkway mainline railway station, around 2 miles in the other direction. The local Cutteslowe Primary School has a Good Ofsted rating, and the catchment High School is the well regarded Cherwell School, now the Cherwell Academy. There are also a number of leading Independent Schools within easy reach.
