About this property

  • About Waters Edge
    Ideal as a principal home, or second/weekend retreat, this modern home was constructed in 2007. It occupies an attractive westerly orientated marina-side setting with forecourt front garden and drive and landscaped rear garden, from which a walkway leads to the property's specific 17m marina mooring. In addition, a single garage a short distance from the house has an additional parking alongside, with a mains electricity supply for a car or caravan.

    The largely oak floored ground floor has a full width sitting room with feature wood burning stove and doors to the covered veranda and garden. The kitchen has an extensive range of wall and base units with integrated appliances and a tiled floor, whilst a utility and cloakroom complete the ground floor. The four first floor bedrooms are all doubles, with The principal bedroom has a full suite bathroom and marina-side balcony that runs the width of the house.

    The setting's wildlife has been a particular delight to the sellers, who often watch red kite and muntjac, as well as swans on the marina, over which they enjoy sunset views from their balcony.

I love Wansford Marina; the setting, the vibe and the accessibility, and with this home's westerly orientation, its 17 metre marina mooring and its additional parking for caravan or boat, I think it is a particularly versatile principal or weekend lifestyle home.
