    About this property

    • This beautifully appointed detached property is positioned within large, professionally landscaped gardens that are designed for ease of care and entertaining in mind with a marina-side frontage, over which there are south westerly views to the River Nene.

      This property is part of an exclusive gated development of select houses that wrap around three sides of the marina on the River Nene, with a marina mooring right and 88 miles of navigable river between Peterborough and Northampton.

      Constructed in 2015, with low maintenance composite clad elevations, this energy efficient house has been lavished with care and investment over the past two years. The windows and doors have been replaced, with four sets of bi-folding doors installed, with integrated blinds for adjustable light control, linking the living rooms and kitchen to the gardens. Technologically advanced, a Smart Lightwave system allows lighting and mood zones to be set inside the house and around the gardens, remotely by smartphone, ideal for returning home after dark and for enhanced security if away, whilst a 'hard-wired' ethernet cable connection runs from the router directly to the televisions, for stable, high-quality streaming, whilst the house's has an efficient, partially under-floor heated air-source heat pump system. In addition, the garden has been professionally designed to be aesthetically appealling, with plenty of room to entertain, but also low maintenance if a second or occasional home.

      The front door opens into a wide oak floored entrance hallway, with views through the south facing bi-folding doors, in keeping with all the ground floor rooms, of the garden and marina.

      The entrance hallway is flanked by the sitting room, also oak floored, the full width of the house and with bi-folding doors to the garden, and the kitchen with underfloor electric heating. The contemporary kitchen suite, fitted in 2022, incorporates NEFF and AEG integrated appliances, with double ovens, induction hob and dining island. The fully fitted office suite, caters for all your needs whilst working from home or would also be an ideal play room, connecting to the gardens with bi-folding doors.

      At first floor level, the wide and vaulted landing, accesses the three double bedrooms and well-appointed family bathroom, with shower over bath. The principal bedroom is particularly large, with fabulous views over the marina, a well-appointed en suite shower room, and dressing room with fitted wardrobes and drawers.

      Electric gates allow entry to Waters Edge, with a private lane leading to the properties, over which there are attractive views. This property has an extensive non-slip brick cobbled driveway and turning sweep, together with a detached double garage, allowing ample space for vehicles to park with ease, flanked by wide formal lawns. Portuguese laurel planting gives mature and private hedging.

      The principal southerly facing gardens, with their marina views, are low-maintenance and have been professionally designed and landscaped, as a two-level garden. A wide non-slip terrace spans the length of the house to its rear, whilst artificial grass lawns, with colourful retained flowering and shrub borders and beds are interspersed through the garden, with paths leading to a Vanguard hot-tub and further seating terraces, one with a large sheltered pergola, and all with the smartphone controlled lighting system. It is truly an all-weather, all season marina-side garden to enjoy.

    Holiday at home, anyone? I love this property's waterside position, the lifestyle it affords with the mooring right, and the quality of finish. What adventures could I and my family have on the river Nene? It's an intriguing thought for me!
