Lovely fully furnished 1 bedroom short let in Oxford with all utilities included and weekly linen change. Fully equipped for a short or long stay.

This is a well-furnished, light and sunny one-bedroom apartment in the popular Grandpont area of Oxford. It is within easy walking distance of Oxford city centre and offers very attractive accommodation for one person or a couple. The apartment is on two levels on the first and second floors of a two-storey Victorian terrace house and is completely self-contained. It consists of a good-sized double bedroom, bathroom and kitchen on the first floor, and a bright and comfortable living room on the top floor. It is located just south of Oxford city centre across the River Thames, a short walk or bus ride to the city centre. It is in an excellent position, next to a popular park which benefits from a lovely outdoor pool, tennis courts and lake and overlooking beautiful water meadows, all ideal for the summer.

The sitting room is a beautiful light room at the top of the house. 2 velux windows offer charming rooftop views to the front, and large windows to the back offer beautiful views over the water meadows which lie behind the apartment. The room is decorated in neutral whites and creams with attractive original artwork, enhanced by subtle ceiling lights. It is very comfortably furnished with a sofa and armchair, small tables and TV/DVD.

The bedroom is a light room at the front of the house. It is furnished with a double bed, large mirrored wardrobe with drawers beneath, bedside tables on either side and a chair. It also has lovely pieces of original art on the walls.

The kitchen is of a good size and very smart and modern, with maple wood units and cupboards and attractive tiling. It is fully equipped with all appliances, including a dishwasher, and contains a pine dining table and chairs for guests' dining.

The bathroom is also quite spacious and well-presented, with corner bath and overhead shower, and constant hot water.

All the living areas are beautifully carpeted and there is central heating throughout.

Broadband wifi connection.

The Oxfordshire region

The apartment is .75km south of the city centre in a popular residential street running parallel to the main Abingdon Road. The 15-minute walk to the city centre takes the visitor across the River Thames and up the beautiful street of St Aldate's, past the Town Hall and Christ Church College. There are also frequent buses along the Abingdon Road.

This area has excellent transport links. The Abingdon Road adjoins the Oxford ring road and the A34, with easy access to the M40. The apartment is therefore an excellent choice for visitors looking for access to South Oxfordshire's business and science parks, such as the Oxford Science Park, Milton Park, Culham Science Park, Abingdon, Didcot and Harwell.

South Oxford

Within a few minutes walk is Hinksey heated outdoor lido/pool. A great outdoor centre for children and adults with tennis courts, childrens play area and a beautiful lake and picnic lawn.

The area, Grandpont, consists mainly of Victorian terraced houses like this one, and is very popular with young professional families. The adjacent Abingdon Road runs parallel to the River Thames, with lovely views of the college sports grounds and boathouses all along one side and delightful riverside walks. Punts and rowing boats can be hired at Folly Bridge, five minutes away. Hinksey Park, with an excellent outdoor swimming pool, tennis courts and a lake is one minute away at the end of Marlborough Road, and the water meadows which lie behind the apartment are also lovely for walking in.

Grandpont has plenty of essential shops for the self-catering visitor, such as small supermarkets, newsagents and a chemist, and a number of pubs. All the facilities of the city centre are very close.

5/5

"Thanksgiving Vacation"

I rented this property because it had a big enough kitchen to cook a full 6 course Thanksgiving dinner for my son and 4 of his friends. Everything worked out just fine.The neighborhood was very friendly. It was extremely clean and functional. The upstairs living room was very spacious and comfortable. The bedroom was very comfortable also. Maybe a little far from the city center but the walk was very nice and especially the walk along the river Thames. Just an excellent very comfortable place.

"A very pleasant accomodation in flat with a view."

Comfortable and functional. Excellent location. For someone who wished to combine holiday with work an additional small desk might be iseful
