APARTMENT C. An ingeniously designed split level one bedroom apartment with an excellent feeling of light and space in this newly renovated Edwardian property in Central North Oxford.


A very stylish first floor split level one bedroom apartment with its own balcony. The apartment is both light and airy and has been finished to an excellent standard with a contemporary kitchen and bathroom.

Mount House was designed by architect Frank Mountain and built in 1912. His architectural flair is evident in Mount House, the design of which incorporates distinctive battered stone buttresses combined with roughcast and hard-timbering.

The House has been superbly renovated and extended by developer MPM Properties to produce six luxurious apartments, each with a unique character, spacious rooms and a sense of grandeur associated with living in this part of Summertown.

Existing fireplaces, high ceilings and sash windows in many rooms are complemented by excellent attention to detail and the use of high quality materials throughout. All apartments feature Porcelanosa-designed kitchens, gas fired central heating and Porcelanosa bathroom fittings and tiles. The ground floor apartments have private gardens, with a separate residents' garden for the remaining apartments. The picture is completed by a video entry system for the upper floors and secure cycle storage at the rear. Each apartment will have an understated elegance which is synonymous with living in this leafy, prestigious location; a location in which you will immediately feel at home.

Northmoor Road nestles in the heart of Summertown Conservation Area, which lies between the City Centre, the Oxford Canal, the River Cherwell and Belbroughton Road. The historic area was acquired by St John's College in the 16th Century and developed mainly in the Victorian and Edwardian eras, with many of Oxfordshire's finest houses located there.

Oxford's iconic 'Dreaming Spires' are to the south: the world-famous skyline of beautiful and historic buildings which draws visitors from all around the globe. More locally, Summertown has a wide range of shops catering for everyday needs, while Walton Street and North Parade offer stylish retailers and restaurants and the independent Phoenix Picturehouse. For commuters, Oxford's two stations are both close, offering services to London in approximately an hour.

The city is well known for its excellent schools, many of which are in Summertown, including The Dragon, Oxford High School, St Edwards, Wychwood School and The Cherwell School. Oxford is a city alive with world-class culture, heritage and academic life and is a wonderful, vibrant place to live.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
