The Property
5 CHERWELL WHARF represents a very rare opportunity to acquire a canalside home in the town centre. It is a brick built three storey Victorian stye townhouse with well proportioned and flexible accommodation complimented by views over the adjacent canal. On the ground floor in addition to the bathroom there are two rooms which can be used in a number of ways. At least one can be a bedroom utilising the adjacent bathroom whilst the other could be a study, gym or similar room. The larger of these rooms has direct access to the decked garden on the waterside. On the first floor there is an open plan living kitchen/dining room ideal for a modern lifestyle with a balcony overlooking the canal. On the second floor there are two further double bedrooms and another bathroom. All this is complimented by gas central heating via radiators and double glazing. It should be noted that the property is currently vacant and there is no upward chain.

Externally there is an allocated parking space to the front and there is pedestrian access via an arch which leads via a path to the small decked rear garden which is enclosed with railings and a gate.

The town centre is only yards away as is Banbury railway station. We believe therefore that this property will suit commuters, investors and those simply wishing to enjoy a convenient waterside property without the need to use a car on a daily basis.
