Situated on arguably the most sought after road in Jericho, this charming mid-terraced house has a good sized garden and garage.

59 Observatory Street is a well proportioned house. The large, open plan dining/sitting room has a gas fire, built in alcove cupboards and shelving and French doors opening onto the rear garden. The kitchen, which looks onto the garden, has base and wall mounted units, integrated hob and Insinkerator food waste disposal unit within the sink. On the first floor are the two bedrooms, each with built in wardrobes, and family bathroom. At lower ground floor level there is a further large, tanked and carpeted room. There is potential to extend into the good sized loft area, subject to gaining the necessary consents.

To the rear of the house is a beautiful garden which is larger than some on the street, and has been fully designed and landscaped with an array of perennial shrubs and plants arranged to provide various different areas and privacy. There is also a useful garden shed.

Beyond the garden is a garage with remote controlled roller shutter door that opens onto the quiet Adelaide Street, and pedestrian access from the garage into the garden.

Observatory Street is a pretty road with classic brick properties on one side and an assorted array of painted house colours on the other. The quiet street is fantastically located for the range of boutique shops, restaurants and bars of Walton Street at its western end, accessed off the Woodstock Road at its eastern end, thus providing good access to central Oxford.

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.
