The House Setting

The House and its Setting

house-framed-3aOriginally the St Clements Rectory, Brian Lewis House is a handsome Victorian home, recently upgraded and extended. In a conservation area, the house is central, calm, but not secluded. It has a lovely, well-maintained garden, patio area, and a new purpose-built conservatory. There’s also ample parking space for residents’ own cars, visitors, or taxis.

The house is within easy reach of a wide choice of shops, restaurants, and cafes, as well as vibrant Cowley Road and the Oxford City centre. The Oxford Colleges and the river at Magdelen Bridge are 5 or 10 minutes walk away.

Oxford’s South Park is a few minutes’ walk away, occupying 50 acres of open space, with magnificent views overlooking the city.
