Behind a secure, entry-coded gate, is this impressive 17th-century house. It isn’t just us that find it impressive – it’s a Grade II Star-Listed building, standing proud in the heart of Oxford City Centre. But don’t be fooled by its long 400-year history that’s ever-present through the rich tapestry and classic furniture, this home is packed with mod-cons. With Vispring elite mattresses, rainfall showers, surround sound, designer fittings, and so much more, this home is as luxurious as can be. The finishes of natural stone bathrooms and bespoke woodwork are certainly grand, but what you’ll love most is how these touches make you feel. Let yourself be inspired by the style and elegance, pulling you to work on something creative in your study. On sunny days, prepare your specialty in the kitted-out kitchen to be enjoyed alfresco in the delightful, shared garden, washed down with a crisp glass of wine. Or if cooking isn’t on the cards on your getaway, let a private chef wow you with gourmet meals. When it comes to exploring the city, you’re within walking distance of all the sights and attractions. Spend a morning walking through the cobblestone streets, strolling along the whimsical canal, before taking in a dose of culture at a museum. And of course, every day is best finished off in a traditional cosy pub.
