Fabulous period property backing on to meadows and close to Hinksey Park

DESCRIPTION Located a 'stones throw' from Hinksey Park and backing on to open meadows is this delightful period family home in this sought after neighbourhood. Over the years the property has been extended, but subject to the usual consents could be extended further to create a stunning home more conducive to modern day living. The property retains much of its character and comprises a kitchen/breakfast room to the front and an extended living/dining leading on to the west facing rear courtyard garden with direct access to the meadows. There is also a cloakroom which is currently used as a utility room, but could easily be re-instated. The first floor offers two double bedrooms with stairs rising to the second floor where there are two smaller bedrooms and family bathroom.
Outside there is a wonderful west facing courtyard garden ideal for enjoying a glass of wine watching the sun set over the meadows.

LOCATION Marlborough Road is one of Grandpont's sought after side roads and is less than a mile from Oxford City Centre. Hinksey Park with its open air swimming pool and other leisure facilities is a short walk to the South, and the River Thames and tow path is a short walk North. The train station and bus station with regular services to London and the airports are within walking/cycling distance. Tesco Express is a short walk and there is a choice of local pubs and restaurants. The local primary school is St. Ebbes CE Primary School on Whitehouse Road, along with South Oxford Adventure Playground (SOAP). Grandpont is also within the catchment areas of both Cheney and Cherwell Secondary Schools.

DIRECTIONS From Folly Bridge head south along Abingdon Road and the second turning on the right into Whitehouse Road. At the cross roads, turn left into Marlborough Road. The property will be found towards the end on the right.
