    About this property

    • This newly built property is one of three on this unique riverside development constructed by well renowned local developer Dean and Dean Ltd.

      Of part brick, part horizontal timbers with brick buttresses, this is a very eye-catching contemporary home tucked away in a special spot right by the river.

      The two storey accommodation makes the most of the river views as the living space is on the first floor. As soon as you enter the house it feels light and contemporary - with an impressive powder coated turning staircase incorporating oak treads. There is underfloor heating beneath the engineered oak flooring and in the hall is a cloaks cupboard and airing cupboard with pressurised hot water cylinder together with a door to the terrace.

      There are three bedrooms on the ground floor either accessing the terrace or front garden with fitted wardrobes. One has an en suite shower room and there is a family bathroom with bath having shower attachment over, wall hung WC, vanity wash basin with drawers and heated towel rail. In addition on this floor is a utility room with space for washing machine and tumble dryer and a door to the front store cupboard and water softener.

      On the first floor, the stairs lead directly in to the main vaulted living accommodation. At one end is the sitting and dining areas with sliding door to the covered balcony and fantastic views of the river.

      At the far end of this room is the kitchen fitted with Siemens ovens, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and drinks cooler. There is a wide array of wall and floor mounted units with Silastone worktop, Siemens induction hob and retractable extractor. The window at this end of the room overlooks the town and has a view of the Cathedral.

      On this floor there is also a fourth bedroom or alternatively an exceptional sitting room with a low window with views to the river.

      The property is approached over a shared drive and has a double length parking space beneath the carport with gate to the private garden at the rear of the property which is fenced and planted with shrubs and a mature Walnut tree in the centre. To the far side of the property is a wide terrace and additional grassed area enjoying impressive views to the river.

    This is such an impressive property with first floor living accommodation – I particularly love the covered balcony beside the sitting room overlooking the river ... what a special spot.
