A HOUSE owned by an Oxford bookseller who was stabbed to death has been put up for sale for almost three quarters of a million pounds.

Adrian Greenwood's Iffley Road home has been placed on the market by estate agents Penny and Sinclair for £725,000.

Mr Greenwood lived in the property alone before he was murdered in his own home by Michael Danaher in April 2016.

The police investigation found Danaher had stabbed Greenwood multiple times in the hallway of his house before he stole a £50,000 first-edition copy of Wind in the Willows. During Danaher's trial jurors heard how the killer had travelled to the city five times to plot his crime, took a selfie moments afterwards and had created a celebrity hit list, which included Kate Moss and Jeffrey Archer.

He tried to claim someone else was behind this but the jury saw through his lies.

Jailing him for 34 years, Judge Ian Pringle QC branded the murderer 'obsessed' with targetting celebrities and wealthy people to solve his money woes.

Detective Superintendent Kevin Brown, the senior investigating officer in the case, previously told the Oxford Mail it was one of the biggest investigations he has worked on.

He added: "All murders attract a certain amount of attention because of the very nature of the crime and there individual circumstances. This one locally has got some significance, in terms of you could say it had a little bit of an Inspector Morse theme to it.

The bay fronted four-storey house is situated opposite Magdalen College School.

The property includes a garage and period features remain throughout and include sash windows and fire places.
