Sandhills is located on the southern perimeter of Headington, Oxford. The Thornhill Park and Ride is opposite with A40 and M40 easily accessible, making Sandhills a convenient commute to London. Within the ring road are five hospitals and many educational institutions, including John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford Brookes University, Windmill Primary, St Andrews and Headington Girls School, making this location popular amongst medics and academics. There are a good selection of local shops within a short drive, including Waitrose, Asda, Co-Op and Tesco.
In the owners words:
“With easy access to Oxford and London, purchasing 45a Merewood Ave. was a natural choice. It’s unusual to find a two-bed property with such a nice character. Being on the first and second floors you get lots of light and really feel the benefit of living in a proper house in the friendly Sandhills neighbourhood. The location is ideal - close to Thornhill, which acts as a park and ride for central Oxford but also has round-the-clock direct connections to the heart of London, which makes the journey easily commutable. The proximity to the Oxford hospitals, A40, M40 and ring road is superb and it’s also been great to have the direct bus service to the international airports at Heathrow and Gatwick which has opened up adventures even further afield.
The place has also proved popular with a range of lodgers over the years, thanks to the off-street parking and the way the bedrooms are set apart. The living space is light and airy with big windows, and you get lovely views of the stars from the skylights in the master bedroom upstairs. We’ve taken great pride in renovating the bathroom and kitchen since being here and the private garden is another great space for entertaining friends and family – planted with fragrant flowers and shrubs, low maintenance, and perfect for barbecues in the summer.
Living here you really appreciate the access to green space. Across the way is Risinghurst park which hosts a summer fete and fireworks display. Also within walking distance is the CS Lewis Nature Reserve and Shotover Country Park. In the other direction you can head into the countryside and across towards Forest Hill and Stanton St John. Barton Leisure Centre is just around the corner and within easy reach in Headington are an array of shops and the park at Bury Knowle where you can find beautiful wooden sculptures, tennis courts and a library. I’ve been part of the local cricket club since moving here and learnt to play ‘Aunt Sally’ in the beer garden at the Mason’s Arms which also holds the title of CAMRA City Pub of the year! We’ve loved living here and are sure this will also be a wonderful home for whoever lives here next."
