Description

SHORT LET Perfect Top floor central studio on a unique central City Island.

Studio Iris is wonderfully secluded being the only studio occupied on the top floor of Folly Bridge House. Right up in the battlements, you might imagine yourself in that mythical Oxford 'ivory tower'. You can see to the clouds that hover over the Chilterns Hills far away to the south. You can see east over Folly Bridge to the stretch of the River Thames that winds past Christchurch Meadows and has been known as The Isis since Roman times. In the early mornings, you catch a glimpse of the university rowing teams as they turn to go downstream. Hard as it might be to believe, the reflected light from the river still dances on the ceiling here, four storeys up from the water.

The abstract acrylic Rise by Paul du Toit is a fitting adornment to this room. Self-portrait, linocut by Max Wolpe and Blue Jug by Rachel Nicholson have a more intimate feel.

Studio Iris has a private bathroom. Folly Bridge House bathrooms are small. Their size is dictated by trying to introduce 21st comfort into a heritage house. So, if a large bathroom is a critical element of your enjoyment, FBH is not for you. However, the bathroom is bright, light with an innovative powerful water-softening shower and hairdryer.

The studio is furnished with a double bed, two bedside tables with drawers, a round dining table with chairs and a comfortable armchair. The wardrobe has a mirror glass door, a hanging rail, and three drawers. It is W50xD60xH236.

Iris kitchen is equipped with stainless steel worktop, double induction hob, full-sized undercounter fridge, combination convection oven/microwave/grill and the elegant necessities of city living for two.

There is superfast fibre optic broadband, a flatscreen TV/DVD and hairdryer. The latest in ventilation systems removes cooking smells, steam and Oxford's notorious damp climate from the apartment replacing them with fresh, warmed air from above the trees at a rate of 180 cubic metres per hour.

> Parking available on request at £70 per week (discounts for longer stays)
> CCTV monitored parking
> Laundry facilities
