2 Sadler Walk
This is a modern, sunny house with two double bedrooms and one bathroom, a full kitchen and a lounge-dining area. It also has a porch and outhouse for storage, a parking space in the back garden, gas central heating (new boiler in 2006) and good insulation, parquet flooring downstairs and fully tiled bathroom and kitchen. The garden is small but colourful and requires zero maintenance. The property is fully furnished (including washing machine, fridge-freezer, microwave, telephone, stereo and television) and kept in immaculate condition. Council tax and utilities (costing around 250 pounds per month for a property of this size) are included in the rent.
The house is located in central Oxford, just a 5-minute walk from the Westgate Shopping Centre and a 10-minute walk from the train and bus stations. The neighbourhood is nonetheless extremely pleasant and quiet – the noisiest things that you will hear are the wood pigeons on the lawn. As the name suggests, Sadler Walk is pedestrianized and fronts onto the village green; it is 100 metres from both the river and the millstream and offers immediate access to the open country of the Grandpont Nature Reserve or, somewhat further away, Port Meadow. Vehicular access to the property is via the rear.
