1 Oxford Street (Oxford Villa)

Does anybody have any information or photos on 'Oxford Villa' Oxford Street. My 4x great-grandfather shows up at that address on the 1891 and 1901 census. It contained an entrance hall, dining room, drawing room, kitchen, scullery, four bedrooms, dressing room, bathroom, W.C., and cellars with an outside wash kitchen, sheds and a garden. In 1901, my 4x great-grandfather died and allowed his second wife to live in the house until she dies. The property was then sold in 1918 when my 4x great-grandfathers wife died. I believe it was demolished sometime in the 70s, but unsure.

Thank you very much for that. I have no records of previous owners so that’s really helpful.

Thanks

Thank you both for your help. 

I can’t understand why they would demolish the though. It was a handsome building and it was only replaced by a couple of new-builds. Nothing special though.
