33 Oakthorpe Road is a fantastic example of how to sympathetically blend old and new, cleverly setting off its classic Victorian architecture with a contemporary interior design. Having been taken right back to its original brickwork and lovingly restored by the current owner, the property is a fully renovated, extended family home measuring around 2,200 sq feet, situated in one of Summertown’s sought after side streets. The renovation includes double glazed wooden sash windows, rewiring, replastering, new plumbing and central heating, with radiators to all rooms other than where the property enjoys underfloor heating: the rear Kitchen/Family Room and both Bathrooms.
The property offers a great sense of light and space, in particular featuring a bold and modern rear extension that provides a superb Kitchen-Family Room, with bi-fold doors opening onto the south facing garden. Also of particular note is the Loft Conversion, providing a full head-height double bedroom with bi-fold doors opening on to a south-facing balcony. This bedroom also benefits from an en-suite bathroom with separate shower and an adjacent walk-in wardrobe.
Aside from the Kitchen-Family Room and the Loft Conversion Bedroom, there is plenty more to commend about this property. The front door opens into a welcoming Entrance Hall with original wooden flooring that runs throughout much of the house. The large front Reception Room benefits from a feature gas fireplace and bay window. There is a dry-lined Basement accessed through a door from the hallway, which could offer a variety of uses, having TV point, plug sockets, radiator and down-lighting. There is also a WC and a separate Utility Room.
On the first floor there are three double Bedrooms. The largest of these, to the front of the property, spans the full width of the house and includes the bay window and period fireplace. The Family Bathroom features a suite including bath, wash basin, wc and bidet.
Outside the property there is off street parking to the front, and a gate leads to a side passage connecting to the rear garden. The rear garden is south facing and provides both lawn and patio, a range of planted beds and borders and is enclosed by fencing. The rear garden measures approx. 25 metres.
Summertown is a highly regarded and much sought after North Oxford suburb, with its own a thriving high street and a number of side streets boasting a variety of independent and mainstream shops, cafes, bars and restaurants, as well as other facilities and services including doctors, dentists, library, theatre and leisure centre. It is home to a range of businesses, and is fantastic for accessing the historic city centre as well as the nearby Oxford Parkway railway station for direct fast trains to London. Summertown has a well attended Farmers Market every Sunday.
Notably, there are a number of leading independent schools in the vicinity, including the Dragon School, St Edwards, Summerfields, Wychwoods and Oxford High School, as well as there being some excellent local state schools including Phil and Jim’s, St. Aloysius, Cutteslowe and Wolvercote Primary Schools, and The Cherwell Academy – consistently one of the top state secondary schools in the UK.
