Property description

Description Built in 1874 by local builder, James Walter to a design by the architect Frederick Codd, 4 Canterbury Road is an attractive and substantial detached house enjoying a south facing walled garden situated in the North Oxford Conservation area. The property offers elegant and flexible accommodation arranged over four floors with many retained period features typical of its era including spacious rooms with high ceilings, cornicing, fireplaces, sash and broad bay windows.

The ground floor offers an attractive reception hall accessed from a tiled entrance porch, a beautiful bay windowed drawing room, a library/sitting room, cloakroom and a study with French doors opening to steps down to the garden. Arranged over the first and second floors are seven/eight bedrooms, and three shower rooms (one en-suite). The lower ground floor offers a kitchen, dining room, utility room, store room, wet room and a large family room with bay window. There is a side entrance with access to the garden and the front of the house.

To the exterior is parking for several cars to the front which leads to side access to a south facing garden mainly laid to lawn edged with mature shrubs. In addition there is a garage with vehicular access from Winchester Road and a pedestrian access directly into the garden.

Situation Canterbury Road is one of the most sought-after side roads in Central North Oxford; it runs between the Banbury and Woodstock Roads. It is roughly equidistant between the City centre and Summertown, in the most popular and prestigious residential area of the historic city.
