The kitchen is equipped with mostly Miele appliances, a quartz worktop and the added benefits of a Quooker tap and overhead sound system. There is also a good sized storage cupboard and cloakroom by the entrance. Further into the apartment both the spacious principal bedroom and second bedroom/study have bespoke built in wardrobes by Hammond with interior lighting. The bathroom
has a fitted corner bath with a shower over the bath, the water feeding the shower is from the mains giving it high pressure. There is access to a large boarded loft space above the apartment, with fitted racks and lighting.
The block of apartments is well maintained, the roof was insulated 7 years ago and has extra facilities including a communal ground floor cloakroom with sink and outside bike rack and bin storage.

The west facing communal garden has been thoughtfully landscape creating seating areas under a pagoda or under the shade of a weeping ash tree. An automatic watering system has been installed to water the border plants. There is designated off street parking to the front of the property.

Central North Oxford is the most prestigious and popular residential area within this historic city. Located in the North Oxford Victorian Conservation Area, which is flanked to the west by Port Meadow and to the east by the University Parks. North Oxford is desirable for many reasons, not least because of the proximity to an array of schools, including The Dragon, Summerfields, Oxford High, Magdalen College School and St Edwards to name a few.

The property is close to Summertown with its excellent range of local stores, restaurants, cafés and everyday amenities. The property offers excellent access to Oxford city centre with its extensive shopping, commercial and educational facilities. Communication links are excellent with a railway station in the city centre, Oxford Parkway to the north, and easy access to the M40 (Jct 8) and London Heathrow.

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.
