Description
SHORT LET Lower ground floor studio with glass doors onto the river and the private conservatory

Studio Calendula stands, Venice-like, right over the waters of the Thames. On the lower ground floor, with glass doors onto the river and onto the riverside conservatory, the studio is sunny and light. Ripples of water dance on the ceiling in the wake of boats gliding downstream.

It is the most spacious of the Folly Bridge apartments. It has its own front door and a small private conservatory for outside dining or reclining, fishing or catching crayfish. On winter days you can lounge inside on the love-seat in the sun, reading your book, gazing downstream.

Paul du Toit's large acrylic on canvas Seascape hangs above the bed and the small oil painting Vibrations (also by him) hangs in the entrance. In the kitchen area there is a charcoal drawing: Cape Town Street Scene. The studio has Italian stone floors warmed by underfloor heating and a finely woven gabbeh rug. There is superfast fibre optic broadband and a flatscreen TV/DVD and the bathroom is brand new, small, bright and with a strong shower and hairdryer.

The hideaway kitchen is cleverly designed to provide for modern living, almost invisibly: double induction hob, full-sized undercounter fridge with ice box and microwave and all the elegant necessities of city living. (A combination convection oven/microwave/grill is available on request). The latest in ventilation systems removes cooking smells, steam and Oxford's notorious damp climate from the apartment, replacing them with fresh, warmed air drawn in from above the trees at a rate of 180 cubic metres per hour.

The house is an Oxford landmark and has been beautifully restored by a potter and a photographer. They describe it as 'eco chic'. Guests can enjoy their collection of modern art and ceramics. A crenellated Georgian tower standing in the River Thames at the point of the original 900 AD oxen ford, it conjures all the romance of the city. This is the spot where Alice in Wonderland was invented by Lewis Carroll. On Folly Bridge, the 13th century philosopher and alchemist Roger Bacon had a tower. From the roof, the River Thames and the dreaming spires of the city spread out before you.
