Properties offer a safe harbour
A Victorian house in Oxford's Walton Manor has a garden bordering the canal, complete with a mooring and electric boat charger.
The four-storey, bay- fronted house in Southmoor Road was built in 1883 to a design by local architects Wilkinson & Moore and still has many period features including sash windows and open fireplaces. The grounds include a dove house and two terraces, one that overlooks the canal.
James Penny, of agents Penny & Sinclair, said: “The electric charger is a unique and unusual addition and completes the luxury lifestyle offered by this immaculate, superbly designed property.”
Another property with an interesting architectural heritage is a six-bedroom house in Charlbury Road.
The three-storey Edwardian house dates back to 1905 and was designed by builders Symm and Company, which restored Blenheim Palace and the Houses of Parliament and still trades in Oxford.
Character features include high ceilings, decorative cornicing and bay windows.
Its 3,637 sq ft living space includes a double reception room and study which run the width of the house, a second drawing room which opens to the terrace, kitchen/breakfast room and conservatory.
The master bedroom is ensuite and there are five more double bedrooms plus a kitchenette and working lift.
