A unique Regency villa in North Oxford, this property narrowly avoided redevelopment due to a campaign by local residents’ which resulted in a Grade II* Listing. The future of the property was secured when it was subsequently purchased by our client for use as a family home. This is an important property in North Oxford and a substantial degree of research into the history of the building and gardens was carried out. Close collaboration during the design process with the City Council’s Conservation Officer and English Heritage resulted in careful attention to detail in the restoration of original features while creating a contemporary family home. The results are impressive and demonstrate the success of a close working partnership between our client, Gray Baynes + Shew, interior designer Hugh Leslie and the builder Symm & Co which has created a much-loved family home.
