Bedrooms: 3
With Port Meadow on the doorstep and Summertown in easy reach this is a very charming property that retains much of its original character with fireplaces, original doors, and stripped wooden floors. On the ground floor there are two reception rooms located at the front and the rear of the house, and a kitchen/breakfast room that leads to the garden. There is an under stairs cupboard that provides useful storage but could also be converted into a downstairs WC. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms and a nice single bedroom that fits a single bed. There is also a family bathroom. There are gardens at both the front and the rear of the house, the front garden is mature with varied planting that provides some privacy for the front room of the house. There is a broad side passage with a shed, that leads to the rear garden which is mainly laid to lawn with a secluded spot for a table and chairs to enjoy the afternoon and evening sun.

The village of Wolvercote sits on the edge of Port Meadow which is one of the largest open spaces in the north of the city (136.9 ha) and enjoys the benefit of one of only two designated wild bathing waters in the country. Wolvercote is a thriving community on the edge of Oxford with excellent accessibility to the city. There are three public houses, a community village shop and an excellent primary school. There is a community allotment on Port Meadow, a weekly farmers market and a regular bus service into the city. It is also possible to walk across Port Meadow or along the towpath into the centre of Oxford. With the River Thames flowing through the heart of the meadow the flood plains are home to many species of wildfowl, cattle and horses. The grazing rights of the Freemen (and from the 16th Century the Commoners of Wolvercote) protected the meadow from development.
