Pretend you're an Oxford don for the weekend at this spectacular garden-level Victorian home in the heart of the world-famous university city. This apartment is steeped in history and has some gorgeous original features, including spectacular bay windows in the living room, an ornate stone fireplace and buffed wooden floors. But the styling is undoubtedly modern here, with an almost Scandinavian touch. We love the muted colours - creams, eggshell and dove grey - with the odd pop of colour in the bedrooms (check out the super-soft orange bedding) and geometric print furnishings in the living room. We can imagine a spectacular dinner party held at the industrial-style dining table, with its wooden top and steel legs, before retiring in the living room to admire the black and white Jackson Pollack-style artwork over a glass of wine. This home is in Summertown, Oxford's most bohemian neighbourhood, and well-known for its organic wine bars, buzzy restaurants and independent shops. The city's main sights - the university, cathedral and punting on the river - are all a 10-minute walk away.

About Oxford

Nicknamed the ‘City of Dreaming Spires’ by poet Matthew Arnold due to its thirty-eight honey-coloured colleges, Oxford is awash with tradition, culture and its prestigious University. Whether you’re streaming down the beautiful River Cherwell on a canal boat, discovering the city’s medieval roots or dipping in and out of designer shops, the world-famous edifices gloriously consume just about every crack, crevice and cobbled avenue.
