Full description

Residential Mooring complete with 56' Narrowboat style Houseboat situated in the Hythe Bridge Arm, just down off Hythe Bridge on the Oxford Canal, right in the heart of Oxford.

This charming narrowboat offers buyers a rustic lifestyle that is entirely a part of its charm, in the very centre of things yet at the same time amidst peaceful and tranquil surroundings, set on a canal mooring next to both the River Thames as well as the grounds of Worcester College. It almost comes as a surprise when you realise that coupled with this on the one hand, on the other you have Oxford's main Railway Station just five minutes walk away with regular trains to London and other parts of the country. It is also of course just a few minutes walk to the city centre, Jericho and to the bustling Castle Quarter... what a fantastic alternative to a one bedroom flat in the area which might cost two, three or four times the price - ideal therefore for a single person or couple perhaps with a little more sense of romance and adventure about them.

The accommodation includes a galley kitchen with Fired Earth tiles, fitted with rustic style wooden units with cherry wood worktops, gas cooker and hob and inset butler sink, and there is a complete bathroom suite including bath tub, wc and basin. There is also a Living Area with a Morso Squirrel wood burning stove, firing a back boiler that heats radiators in the living and bedroom areas; the separate bedroom area is at one end partitioned with a curtain. The other end of the boat (the 'Living Area' end!) boasts a conservatory style window that is not only a fantastic place to sit and watch the world go by, but also allows light to flood in to what feels like a bright and spacious property for its type - indeed, there is a bit more headroom than other similar properties.

The property has undergone some substantial fundamental improvements with fully reconditioned diesel engine and replacement of steelwork fully to surveyors' requirements in 2015.
