Stile Road, Headington

Guide price

Bedrooms: 3
A comfortable semi-detached family home in the heart of Headington, this three-bedroom house dates from the Edwardian era and retains many period details such as feature fireplaces in each of the reception rooms, picture rails and cornices and magnificent timber floorboards throughout. However it also presents an exciting opportunity to update and refurbish in a more contemporary style, according to taste.

On entering the property the hallway leads to each of the downstairs rooms which include, to the front, a sitting room with fine original fireplace and large bay window, and then at the heart of the house a cosy living room also with feature fireplace and connecting glazed door leading through to the kitchen.

The kitchen has been stylishly extended, and now incorporates a dining area with paired glazed doors opening on to the garden. The vaulted ceiling incorporates large skylights that bring to this comfortable family space a light and airy feel, on even the gloomiest day. There is also a downstairs cloakroom off the main hallway.

Upstairs there are three good-sized bedrooms, the main bedroom retaining an original feature fireplace, and the family bathroom. The generous roof space also offers the potential for a loft conversion, and the vendors have retained an architect to develop plans for several alternative schemes that deliver one or more additional bedrooms and a further bathroom.

The south-west facing garden, approximately 19m x 6m, is laid mainly to lawn, but with flower and vegetable beds, and mature apple tree. There is also a useful timber shed/workshop.

Headington is one of the most sought-after districts of Oxford, with a number of outstanding schools, a bustling high street offering a range of shops and restaurants, as well as numerous parks and open spaces (Bury Knowle Park is less than 200m from the property), including a golf course. At its heart is the university hospital complex, which includes the John Radcliffe Infirmary, Churchill and Nuffield Hospitals, and the main campus of Oxford Brookes University is also close by. There are excellent transport links into the city centre and being on the Eastern edge of the city with ready access to the ring road, Headington is also ideally located for those needing convenient links to the M40 and wider road network.
