Under the skin of the letting market

Here we share news and views on both the local letting market in & around Oxfordshire and all planned and recent legislation.


City Retreat for Quality of Life


An historic home that’s blissfully quiet with hardly any passing traffic; friendly neighbours in an interesting cultural enclave; a lovely garden to retreat to and a practical garage too. This profile sounds more like a sleepy village than the absolute centre of historic Oxford.

But this Georgian home in iconic St John Street, with stone-faced houses dating back to 1820, would provide the most wonderful opportunity to experience this haven of a family home within minutes’ walk of the bustle of the city. A perfect introduction to renting in style in Oxford.

8/8/12 UPDATE: THIS HOUSE HAS JUST LET TO A GREAT TENANT 

You would be in good company too. Previous residents of this famous street have included such luminaries as the writer and academic JRR Tolkien, crime writer P.D. James, art historian Iain Pears, landscape painter William Turner of Oxfordshire and musician Thom Yorke of Radiohead.

 

Arranged over 5 floors in the townhouse style, this home has 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 reception rooms plus a superb kitchen breakfast room and utility room. The 4th bedroom is set up as a large study. There’s a basement room ideal for a playroom and the mature garden provides privacy. As well as a garage you can get a permit for on-street parking for a further car.

 

Within a few minutes walk you could be strolling along for curtain up at the Oxford Playhouse; afternoon tea at The Randolph; an exhibition at The Ashmolean or a drink at Tolkien’s ‘Inklings’ haunt, the Eagle & Child in St Giles. A few more minutes’ walk and you’ll be on platform one for the train to London too.

This amazing property to rent in Oxford is available for a flexible start date between now and September at £3,500 pcm through our Central Oxford office. Call 01865 297999 to speak to Letting Department Manager Louise Humphreys or Manager Sandra Rose to arrange a viewing. Alternatively email central@finderskeepers.co.uk.
