Oxford House, Market Street,
Charlbury, OX7 3PH
A beautiful Grade II listed townhouse, located on a picturesque street in Charlbury. Parts of the property date back to the 1600’s and it has a rich history. Following the construction of the Cotswold Line railway from Oxford to Worcester in 1851, the property was acquired and then expanded by a local brewery and it became the Oxford House pub. In the early 1900’s the property was acquired by the London City & Midland Bank. In the early 1980’s it became the Headquarters for GWP Consultants and was finally turned into a residential property in 2003. Close attention was made to retain much of the original charm and character resulting in a superb family home. Behind the attractive square fronted façade, there are three floors of accommodation with all rooms bathed in plenty of natural light through the large sash windows.
