Abingdon-on-Thames Town Centre c.0.5 miles, Didcot Parkway Station 7.8 miles (London Paddington from 38 minutes), Oxford 7 miles, Culham station 3.4 miles
Set in one of Abingdon-on-Thames' most exclusive locations, close to Albert Park, Spring Court offers rare opportunity to acquire this exquisite Victorian townhouse, located in a discreet position on the edge of the Albert Park Conservation Area, within walking distance to the town centre. The property is thought to originally have been constructed as a railway hotel, later divided into substantial properties when the railway was instead, positioned in nearby Didcot. Arranged over four floors, and with nearly 3,000 square feet of accommodation, Spring Court lends itself to 21st Century family living whilst retaining its numerous original, period features, including sash windows, ornate fireplaces, and exposed timber flooring in a number of rooms, creating that rare ambience one would expect of such a house.
The lower ground floor of the property offers a galley style kitchen opening to dining area which itself leads to a family room/play area. This is an ideal space in which to create an open plan kitchen/diner so many purchasers look for. On the ground floor are two wonderfully grand reception rooms with high ceilings, an open fire place in the sitting room and a large, bay window to the front. A small area off of the sitting room could be used as a study. The main front door and entrance hall lead into the sitting room.
Upstairs, on the first floor, is the 6.2m x 4m master bedroom complete with a feature sash window allowing for ample natural light to bathe the room, together with en suite bathroom. There is a further bedroom and an office on this floor, as well as a family bathroom and separate shower. The second floor has two/three further bedrooms and a bathroom.
The property has the rare advantage of ample off street parking, which is secure behind electric, iron entrance gates. The plot extends to c. 0.15 acres in all. Outside, the property benefits from a wrap around garden which is again, a true rarity in such a centrally located property.
Abingdon-on-Thames itself offers a wonderful sense of community, offering many groups and activities to get involved in for those of all ages, within easy reach, and has undergone a renaissance in recent years with a redeveloped retail area. The area is home to some of the UK's highest performing independent schools, of which are within walking distance of the property, including The Manor Preparatory School at preparatory level, with Abingdon School for Boys and The School of St. Helen and St. Katharine at secondary level. There is also a number of Ofsted rated Good' primary and secondary state schools in Abingdon itself and the surrounding area.
Internationally renowned Oxford lies 7 miles north, where there is extensive first class shopping which has been taken to an altogether different level with the recent opening of the stylish Westgate retail and entertainment area. The city offers several theatres, the renowned Ashmolean Museum, art galleries, music venues and of course the ancient and historic college buildings of Oxford University. The independent schools of Oxford are numerous, but in performance terms Magdalen College School for boys (Co- Ed 6th Form), and Oxford High School for girls are the standout choices.
