Close to Summertown and enjoying easy access to the city centre the house, built in 1914, underwent a comprehensive program of modernisation in 2008 and now provides thoughtfully arranged and well-appointed accommodation throughout. The kitchen/dining room is a wonderfully light room with working fireplace. The solid walnut kitchen is equipped with Miele appliances, stainless steel and granite worktops, underfloor heating and a water softener which supplies the entire house. To the rear is a sitting room, with door leading to the garden. On the first floor there are three bedrooms, the largest of which enjoys the view from the bay window over the playing field, a bathroom/utility room and a modern and well equipped shower room.

The bedrooms all enjoy a range of integrated storage and most rooms are equipped with RJ45 sockets or TV aerials. The roof space has been converted into a principal bedroom en suite with walk-in wardrobe and under eave storage. Outside the front of the house is a driveway for a car with an additional space on Pheobe Court. The walled rear garden can be accessed from the front via a side passage and is mainly laid to lawn with a range of mature shrubs and trees positioned to provide privacy and shelter. There is planning permission to build a two storey home office at the bottom of the garden (planning ref: 18/00001/FUL)

Bainton Road borders St John's College playing field and so enjoys a pleasant outlook. At the northern end the road joins with the Woodstock Road and at the other Frenchay Road and Hayfield Road providing a direct route on foot or bicycle into the city off the main drag. Port Meadow and the towpath are in easy reach as is Summertown with a Marks & Spencer's Food as well as a multitude of cafes, restaurants, retail and leisure facilities. Bainton Road also benefits from excellent access to Oxford city and Oxford Parkway Station for access into London Marylebone. Many are drawn to North Oxford for the wealth of excellent schools including The Dragon, St Edwards School, Summerfields and Lynams School. The house itself is in the catchment of Phil and Jim's Primary school (St Phillips and St James') and Cherwell Secondary school.
