This is a charming Arts and Crafts style property, dating from the 1880s. It has an interesting history as it started life as an alcohol-free public house for workmen. Established by the New British Workmen movement, whose aim was to promote a religious lifestyle and the 3Rs.
Now a very comfortable home, the property is in excellent decorative order, including an eclectic mix of character features with a contemporary twist. It is offered to the market with no onward chain.
Accommodation is arranged over two floors, the ground floor featuring a large open plan kitchen/reception room. At the heart of this is a modern Aga, providing super cooking facilities as well as a cosy feel. There is also a lobby area and cloakroom with w.c. The first floor has two double bedrooms, one with fitted wardrobes and a stylish bathroom with separate shower. There is also access to a sizeable boarded loft space.
Outside there is an area of walled garden to the front comprising flower and shrub beds.
The centre of Oxford is only a couple of miles away and there is easy access to a wide range of local amenities, shops, leisure facilities and cultural attractions. Old Headington has good access to London with regular services via The Oxford Tube. The property is also conveniently located near to the John Radcliffe Hospital. There is a range of excellent educational facilities in the area including the Windmill Primary School and well-regarded Headington School.
