    About this property

    • Waters Edge is a gated development of exclusive properties which wrap around three sides of Wansford Marina on the River Nene, which runs for 88 miles between Peterborough and Northampton.

      Constructed in 2007, this property occupies a great setting on the southern side of the marina. With a garden to the front of the house and a wide composite waterside veranda to the rear, which is ideal for entertaining and wraps around to the side driveway.

      Indeed, this fabulous property provides beautifully appointed, spacious accommodation over three floors which showcase the attractive marina views from all the principal rooms, with gardens, generous parking, garaging and a mooring right, to make best use of this fabulous lifestyle location, as a principal or weekend home, between Stamford and Oundle, with its convenient rail connections to London and Cambridge, from Peterborough.

      Accommodation: Entered at upper ground level, the lawned garden lies to the front of the house with a driveway, garage and pathway that links along the side of the house to the lower ground floor's wide waterside veranda terrace, a wonderful waterside entertaining area.

      The front door opens at upper ground level to an oak floored entrance hallway, which passes a cloak/W.C., study and the kitchen breakfast room, to the full width, oak floored sitting/dining room from which doors open to a sheltered balcony with views over the marina.

      The well-appointed kitchen has an extensive range of wall and base units, incorporating integrated double oven, hob, dishwasher and fridge freezer appliances, with space for informal dining.

      The staircase descends to a large lower ground floor hallway, from which a boot room lobby and entrance accesses the side of the house, whilst two generously proportioned marina facing double bedrooms have access to the waterside veranda. A large utility room and family bathroom complete the lower ground floor accommodation.

      The first floor is largely occupied by the principal bedroom suite, from which the bedroom has fabulous views over the marina through almost full height picture windows. The bedroom has been fitted with a wall of wardrobes, in addition to a walk-through dressing room and a full suite en suite, with both bath and separate shower room, which is also Jack & Jill with bedroom four.

      Outside: Electric gates open to the Waters Edge development, to which a private lane leads to the properties. This property benefits from generous driveway parking for several cars to the front of the house, as well as leading to the adjoining garage/boathouse. The aforementioned lawned garden lies to the front of the house, whilst the fabulous composite decking wraps around the marina side of the house.
