Just imagine rolling out onto your choice of either south facing rear garden or your south facing roof terrace with a cup of tea (or a nice glass of something) and taking in the glorious vistas of Port Meadow and the very Dreaming Spires of Oxford beyond, the river Thames glistening in the evening sun...
Well, imagine no longer! This three storey, four Bedroom home in Rowlands Close, in the amazing village of Wolvercote, offers just that - and not to mention well laid out, spacious accommodation including good sized Bedrooms, a large first floor Living Room, and a family oriented Kitchen Diner on the ground floor, spilling out onto the garden through sliding patio doors, with a gate from the garden straight onto Port Meadow itself. Come and find yourself right at home, and bag yourself such a rarely available gem of a property with the sort of staggering views that, in Oxford, normally money can't buy...
The front door into this three storey late 1960's home opens into an Entrance Hallway with room to kick off shoes and hang up coats. On the right hand side there is not just a ground floor WC, but a full Shower Room, ideal to serve the ground floor Double Bedroom at the front of the property. Stairs lead from the Hallway to the first floor, but first head to the rear of the property to the Kitchen/Diner and Day Room, fitted with a range of cupboard units and worktops, benefiting from a separate Utility Room, and with those sliding patio doors opening to the well tended South Facing Rear Garden - and again, I can't help but mention, just stand there and enjoy those startling views beyond.
On the first floor, the stairs lead into the large Living Room, which benefits from wood-burning stove and, without labouring the point, those stunning south facing views across Port Meadow and to the city of Oxford beyond. Double sliding patio doors open onto a good sized roof terrace which benefits from an electric awning that can provide some welcome shade on those particularly sunny summer's days. There is a Study located off the Living Room - in all fairness, a perfectly decent Bedroom 5, if desired. A door leads from Living Room to the stairs up to the second floor.
On the second floor, there are three Bedrooms, the larger two benefiting from built in wardrobe space, as well as a Family Bathroom which offers bath with shower over, wc and wash basin.
Outside the property there is driveway parking to the front for two vehicles, gated side access to the rear garden, and then that south facing rear garden, planted and landscaped yet really quite low maintenance, a superb space for enjoying the outdoors, soaking up those beautiful views, accessing the meadow directly... and of course brilliant for dining outside or entertaining guests, as is the first floor terrace accessed from the main Living Room.
Wolvercote is a village - or indeed, two villages, Upper and Lower Wolvercote - located inside the Oxford ring road, with local facilities which between the two of them include primary school and churches, children's play area, nature reserve, three pubs... or four, to be honest, if we include the very nearby Trout which is technically in Godstow, not Wolvercote (although let's face it, most of us just call it The Trout at Wolvercote!), access onto (and into) the River Thames for paddleboarding, kayaking or indeed swimming, as designated a safe swimming place... and with walks down-river to Jericho or the City Centre, upriver into beautiful Countryside, reaching Eynsham and beyond, and also being walking distance of Summertown and the local Oxford Parkway railway station at Water Eaton, offering direct fast trains to London Marylebone. As well as having the much sought after Wolvercote Primary School in neighbouring Wolvercote St Peter (Upper Wolvercote), the property falls into the catchment for The Cherwell School (as we fondly remember it being called around here, now being 'The Cherwell Academy'), which has recently retained its 'Outstanding' Ofsted rating. Being located within North Oxford, it is also very close to a number of excellent independent schools.
