Green Gables Guest House
326 Abingdon Road, Oxford, OX1 4TE, United Kingdom –
The road outside Green Gables is on the Old Saxon Turnpike route from Southampton to Northampton, which passed through Oxford. The house was built in 1914 by a Eugene Delamare, a toy manufacturer. The house was originally named “PELROCAR” and the postal address was 264 Abingdon Road, Oxford, Berkshire. His offices and warehouses were at 9-13 George Street the offices were built in 1907.These premises are now The Wig & Pen café / bar opposite the Apollo Theatre. The building clearly shows the pattern of offices above and a warehouse/workshop below. In 1914 Green Gables was surrounded by fields, in 1921 the city built a housing estate across the road. Shortly before the housing development Delamare moved to Wolvercote. His ancestors still live there to the present day. We bought the house in 1999. In 2000 major alterations were carried out on the house. The kitchen was completely gutted and refitted. Two rooms had en-suites added. All the rooms are now en-suite. A complete new wing was added to the house, consisting of the proprietor’s quarters. The renovations were completed in 2002 the final addition was the guest lounge, the conservatory.
