    The Ridgeway Boars Hill

Please enter your starting address in the form input below.

A beautifully situated Edwardian semi-detached house dating from around 1907 in the highly desirable hamlet of Boars Hill, some 4m SW of Oxford city centre. The property enjoys an absolutely idyllic position in The Ridgeway surrounded by woodland and adjoins land owned by Oxford Preservation Trust. The house has been in the same ownership since 1976 and has been extended in that time but also offers fantastic potential for imaginative alteration and improvement, subject to consents. The large established garden lies on three sides of the property with off-road parking. The accommodation currently comprises 3 Bedrooms, Attic Room, first floor Bathroom, a Sitting Room extension overlooking the garden, separate Dining Room, Kitchen, Breakfast Area, and Utility/WC.  The property has gas central heating. 

Boars Hill is an unspoilt and largely protected area with several sites owned by the Oxford Preservation Trust.  It lies some 3-4 miles south west of Oxford with the ring road and A34 easily accessible and the world famous viewpoint of the "Dreaming Spires" within walking distance on Berkeley Road.  This very well regarded location, midway between Oxford and Abingdon, consists of some fine individual homes with beautiful open countryside and a network of trails and footpaths on the doorstep.  Local shops are available in nearby Wootton village. 

There are few opportunities to purchase a home in this particular location and within this budget, early viewing is therefore advised.   



Boars Hill can be accessed from Oxford Ring Road via Hinksey Hill and Foxcombe Road or Wotton village via Foxcombe Hill. The Ridgeway runs off Berkeley Road with Ridgeway Cottage being found after a short distance on your left. Satnav: OX1 5EX.
