Chilswell Road, Grandpont, Oxford

Guide price

Bedrooms: 3
This beautifully restored 19th century terraced house lies in the heart of the much sought-after Grandpont area of Oxford. Cleverly remodelled by the present owner it combines period charm with contemporary style and now offers the best of both.

The original front door, glazed with leaded lights, leads into the hall. On the left is the comfortable sitting room, with open fireplace and large bay window. The centre of the house has been re-designed to create a delightful light-filled open-plan space illuminated by a magnificent skylight at the top of the stairs. The hallway gives on to the dining room, again with feature fireplace, original built-in cupboards and paired glazed doors opening on to an area of decking at the rear of the house. The bright and airy kitchen has been extended to incorporate a breakfast/dining space with glazed doors that open on to an area of decking and steps down to the secluded rear garden. An under-stair cloakroom completes the downstairs accommodation.

Upstairs, the elegant and well-proportioned master bedroom benefits from ample built-in storage, and two large West-facing windows that flood the space with light. Beautifully restored floor boards add to the stylish and contemporary feel. There are two further bedrooms and a family bathroom, all centred around the double-height landing with skylight that floods the centre of the house with sunlight throughout the day.

To the rear of the house, the mature and private garden is a haven of calm, with well-established fruit trees including apple and fig, and a wrap-around decking area that enables the occupants to find the perfect space in shade or sunshine, throughout the day, all year round. In addition there is a timber bike store and also a storage shed for lawnmower and other garden equipment.

Grand Pont is the perfect location for families, with excellent Nursery and Primary schools close by, and Hinksey Park, with its open-air heated swimming pool, boating lake and tennis courts and scuba diving centre, is also just 400m distant, as well as the open spaces of Dean's Ham Meadow and the South Oxford Adventure Playground. Residents can also enjoy the riverside walks into town, or the Sustrans cycle track runs through Grandpont, along and over the river.

There are a number of excellent pubs nearby, and the city centre is easily reached either on foot or by the regular bus services along Abingdon road. The Oxford ring road giving access to the wider road network, is only a couple of minutes drive away.

This is a not-to-be-missed opportunity to acquire an exceptional home in one of Oxford's most popular residential areas. Early viewing is strongly advised.
