    About this property

    • Constructed in 2017, this beautiful property occupies a south east facing marina side setting, with marina mooring right. It provides beautifully appointed, spacious accommodation over three floors, which showcase the marina views from the principal rooms on all three floors, with professionally landscaped, low-maintenance gardens, for entertaining and enjoying the waterside setting. This truly is a fabulous lifestyle setting.

      The Accommodation
      This is a wonderful home from which to receive guests and entertain. Entered from the generous driveway parking, with its access to the oversized garage, at upper ground level, the front door opens into a wide hallway, with under-floor heated oak floors that span the entire level of the house. The hallway passes an office and cloakroom/W.C, to the full width, open plan family dining kitchen, with spacious sitting room from which bi-folding doors open to a sheltered balcony with views of the marina and River Nene beyond.

      The kitchen is fitted with a bespoke suite, with Corian worktops, a Quooker boiling hot water tap and Siemens integrated appliances, including induction hob, bank of ovens with warming drawers, dishwasher, fridge freezer and double wine cooler. A side entrance door gives access to stairs down to the garden from the kitchen.

      The internal staircase descends to lower ground floor, where en suite bedroom three and bedroom four, currently a media room, both have French doors and direct access to the garden, a utility and adjoining plant room, and full-suite family bathroom completing the LG accommodation.

      From the entrance hall, the staircase rises to first floor level where the generously proportioned vaulted principal bedroom has fabulous views over the marina through its almost full height picture windows, French doors and Juliet balcony. Its dressing room is fitted with a bank of fitted wardrobes, with recessed lighting, and leads to a well-appointed en suite shower room. Bedroom two also has fitted 'Sliderobes' wardrobes and is currently used as a gym.

      Outside
      Electric gates open to the Waters Edge development, to which a private lane leads to the properties. There is driveway parking for two cars at the property, along with an oversized garage with lighting, sockets and electric Hormann garage door.

      The south easterly facing garden is designed for entertaining and for showcasing the fabulous setting. Designed by renowned garden designers, Alfresco Landscaping (http://www.alfrescolandscaping.co.uk/), the gardens incorporate seating and dining terraces, with artificial turf and low stone-walled flower and shrub beds, complete with night-time lighting and an automated irrigation system and water features.
