This lovely Victorian home is in North Oxford, backing onto the Oxford Canal, with a small offside mooring. The house needs a little love and attention, but has lots of potential to improve the accomodation and perhaps to add an imaginative extension to the rear. There is access to open countryside nearby, and the house is within easy reach of a wide range of amenities and eateries.
The house fronts directly onto the pavement on Hayfield Road. It has a pleasing solid appearance, with sash windows and characterful masonry details to match the other houses in the terrace. The front door opens into a welcoming hallway. Immediately to the left is a small front room which is currently used as a third bedroom. Behind this is a large living room with an attractive period-style fireplace and a window overlooking the garden. A door from the living room leads into a long single storey extension, containing a galley kitchen, and beyond this a cloakroom and a versatile garden room. Stairs rise from the hallway to the first floor. Here there are two bedrooms, one to the front and one to the rear, as well as a bathroom to the rear.
The garden is mainly laid to lawn with some shrubs and larger trees. At the bottom of the garden there is brick and concrete off-side mooring, suitable for a small craft or day boat.
