Oxley Boatshed . Hawkesbury River photograph

This stunning boatshed has been fully restored with warmth, character & style in abundance. The open-plan living area is complimented with massive barn doors that slide open right at the waters edge. Timber floors and rough-hewn beams recall its boatshed origins, whilst the free standing sandstone fireplace and cosy day beds, invite you to recline in luxurious comfort. 

Outside, the wrap around timber deck with both deck chairs & dining table, extends right to the waters edge....the perfect place to watch the tide , the moon & the sun rise.

The place was absolutely brilliant. We loved the whole style of the boatshed and were very happy with the location. We were glad to be surrounded by trees and to have our own jetty from which to swim. Enjoyed kayaking and going out in the tinny, breakfasting on the deck, feeding the ducks and watching the river life. An amazing experience!5/5 by ,
