Excellent Summertown house with planning to extend

Rosemary Cottage is a wonderful house on a desirable road in Summertown. Set back from the road, you enter into a hall area leading to a sitting room with a woodburning stove. Moving to the back of the house is a fully fitted kitchen and a dining room with a skylight. To the back of the property is a utility room and a WC. Upstairs, there are two good sized bedrooms and two bathrooms. The current owner has an approved planning application to allow for some extensions to the ground and first floor and to raise the roof line. The full plans can be viewed on Oxford City Council's website, ref 19/02092/FUL.


The doors lead onto the garden from the dining room which is surprisingly spacious with a number of separate areas. There is a terrace perfect for dining, a wonderful barbeque alcove and a good sized flowerbed for the green fingered.
