Built in 1916 as housing for English Railway workers, this modern townhouse now sits in a beautiful location near the river. Opposite the somewhat iconic Osney Power Station – the first powerplant in Oxford – it's also within walking distance of some of the finest bars and restaurants. The house is modern after a renovation in 2017, where the addition of skylights also brightens the home. The garden is a nice bonus here, where garden furniture and a barbecue occupy the deck in the backyard.
