Luxury Apartment with river views in the city centre

Located in: Oxford »
Studio Melissa has use of Folly Bridge House’s funky wet room, which it shares with one other studio. Recently designed like the cabin of a ship, with a quirky stained glass window, you can stand under the shower and spy on the river life below.

What you gain in this studio is the full, tall-ceilinged, big windowed extent of the original Georgian house. ​​The Dutch-born artist Charles Gassner offers a spectacular abstract acrylic painting above the mantel piece. The water theme is maintained by a dazzling pen ink drawing on the southern wall: ‘Currents’ by Paul du Toit.

In Studio Melissa you can sit back in an antique South African stinkwood armchair with cowhide seat and look south and east over the river and footbridge to the pool beyond where canoeists disappear mysteriously into a tunnel in Folly Bridge, emerging far downstream, out of sight.

Folly Bridge House has been beautifully restored by a potter and a writer. It has 7 self-contained studio apartments (for more information on the whole house search for follybridgehouse). Each apartment is hung with objects from the owners collection of contemporary paintings, sculptures and ceramics. ​Each is equipped with the elegant necessities of city living, including fibre optic broadband and flat screen TV. Folly Bridge House strives for an Eco and Fair Trade ethos.

Only ten minutes walk from the High Street, the colleges of Oxford University and the shops, restaurants and cinemas of the New Westgate Centre, Folly Bridge House lets you be in the bright lights in a moment and yet return to the tranquillity of the river.

​FBH is perfect for individuals, couples or groups of colleagues, seeking the epicentre of the city but wanting something different. Folly Bridge House caters particularly to visiting academics.

Oxford’s most fashionable riverside restaurant, stands across the courtyard. The Folly offers a discount to our guests. Across the road is the famous old Head of the River Pub.

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.

The studio is furnished with double bed, a round dining table with chairs and a comfortable armchair. The wardrobe has a mirror glass door, a hanging rail, and 3 drawers. It is W50xD60xH236.

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

Clothes washing and drying/ironing facilities are provided on the lower ground floor. Gated parking in front of the house, is available at extra charge.
