    About this property

    • The site sits on the Warwick Basin of the Grand Union Canal and previously provided the location for a Customs House in the early 19th century. The site currently comprises an area of hardstanding, a graded bank and two dilapidated semi-detached cottages. Existing highway access is from Budbrooke Road on the eastern boundary of the site. Existing residential dwellings are located off Budbrooke Road to the south east of the site, and off Eastley Crescent to the west of the site. There are a number of mature trees and hedges in close proximity to the site boundary. All boundaries are defined by fencing. The site is roughly rectangular in shape and relatively flat with areas of raised ground towards the boundaries. A grass verge separates the site from the Birmingham Road. The cottage building is located along the western boundary of the site and is currently vacant.
