The four bedroom detached Oxford makes a strong first impression as a substantial, traditional family home, with bay windows, covered porch and classically styled front and garage doors. Even so, you’ll still be impressed by the proportions of the interior, with ample space for everyone, both upstairs and down.
Upstairs features three double bedrooms and a generous single, with an en-suite to the master bedroom. You’ll also find plenty of built in storage off the central landing, as well as family bathroom.
Downstairs, the integral garage takes nothing away from the space on offer, with a large separate lounge and a spacious open plan kitchen / diner stretching across the back of the house. Every detail has been carefully considered here, from the designer fitted kitchen to the quality of the integrated appliances, with a wall of glass letting the light flood in through the double width patio doors. There’s even space for a utility room and downstairs cloaks plus, once again, plenty of built in storage to keep your home clutter free.
Square, solid and substantial, the Oxford is as impressive to live in as it is to look at.
