A unique Regency townhouse in an elegant street in a prime city centre location


St John Street is an elegant residential street tucked away off Beaumont Street in central Oxford. All the city centre amenities are within walking distance, including the railway station, Oxford colleges, theatres, restaurants, shops and the Ashmolean Museum.

There is also good access to all the popular central and North Oxford schools.


This striking Regency townhouse was renovated and extended in 2002 and has since undergone further improvements, and provides a unique and stylish home in this city centre location. Behind the Regency façade, the interior has been carefully designed, incorporating maximum natural light to provide contemporary living, with careful attention to retain the period features typical of this era, including cornicing, fireplaces, sash windows with shutters and high ceilings.

The centrepiece of the property is the lower ground floor, which is believed to have been part of the original crypt under Beaumont Palace, the former 20th royal palace located in Beaumont Street. This space now provides a large, attractive living area with open plan sitting/dining room and natural light provided by a part glazed roof. There is also a large laundry room and a wet room.

On the ground floor, leading off the reception hall, double doors open to the study/sitting room, an elegant room with fireplace and shutters to the windows. The welcoming kitchen/breakfast room, with fiited units and integrated appliances, opens to the courtyard garden and is ideal for entertaining and family gatherings.

On the first floor are two double bedrooms and a refitted bathroom. On the second floor is a further double bedroom with stairs leading up to a dressing room, and there is also a family bathroom. The lower ground floor links to the two further bedrooms and a bathroom. Arranged over three floors and separate to the main house with an independent entrance, it provides the flexibility to be used as a self contained annexe or as guest or family accommodation.

Outside, the walled west facing courtyard garden, with a side access to the adjoining lane lies to the rear of the property, providing a secluded setting.

Square Footage: 3036 sq ft


From Beaumont Street in the city centre, turn into St John Street. The property will be found after a short distance on the left hand side, just before Beaumont Buildings.
