Within Headington yet nestled in a woodland setting, Douglas Downes Close is accessed via a private drive off Quarry Road. An attractive family house currently used as six bedrooms but could be more with accommodation of approximately 4500 sqft plus garage, which is flexible and versatile in its use.
There is an immediate sense of space when entering the grand entrance hall with its sweeping staircase and galleried landing. On the ground floor is a light triple-aspect sitting room, family room and a large open-plan kitchen/dining room and conservatory suited to modern living. There is also a utility and cloakroom. On the first floor are five bedrooms including the master bedroom and guest bedroom, both with en-suite shower rooms and a family bathroom. There is a large “bonus room” on the second floor which could be used as either a sixth bedroom, games room or office space. The lower ground floor extends to 1500 sqft with a large hall, gymnasium, bedroom and an open-plan living room/library/office. This space could be used for independent living, if required or as an extended office. Outside there is off-street forecourt parking for several vehicles and access to an integral double garage. To the rear are delightful, well-stocked terraced gardens with areas for entertaining and relaxation.
