Within the ring road there 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:
"The house has a very calm, peaceful, sunny vibe around it. It is South facing and backs onto the beautiful countryside and woodland of Shotover Park, and feels very private because it is not directly overlooked at the front or the back.
Number 18 is a typical 1930's house...it has three good bedrooms (two large and one smaller) with the original doors, picture rails and skirting boards, and the hallway/living/dining areas are very open, light and spacious. I carried out some renovations about six years ago, updating the bathroom to a simple clean white suite... (which was previously avocado), and adding new kitchen work-surfaces to the vintage Moben kitchen.
More recently, I have had the beautiful wooden floors sanded and varnished, and the internal walls and woodwork decorated in calming greys and whites to bring light and space to the house. I have also added fresh white wooden tape blinds throughout the house, and chrome door handles to give a more modern feel. If you love gardening, then this is the house for you...it has a lovely long garden with lots of wildlife to observe.
Grovelands is a lovely quiet road within easy reach of The CS Lewis Nature Reserve, Shotover, Oxford (number 9 bus) and London by coach. It is a wonderful friendly neighbourhood, full of community spirit... and the local pub The Ampleforth, has jazz evenings and even a visiting chip van! It's all round a great place to live."
