Fyfield Road is situated in the heart of the much favoured residential area of Norham Manor in Central North Oxford and the North Oxford Victorian Conservation area. It is a quiet, prestigious side road with little through-traffic and the added charm of a gentle chime from Lady Margaret Hall’s church bells at the far end of Fyfield Road by University Parks.
The property is a handsome double fronted detached family home built over three floors. The house offers a wealth of period detail with cornicing, fireplaces, deep sash windows and original wooden floors. The principle reception rooms are superbly proportioned. To the ground floor there are three main reception rooms and study with two conservatories to the rear overlooking the garden. The kitchen / breakfast room with double cream Aga has a door to the garden and there are two utility rooms and a cloakroom.
