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.

    20 Waters Edge was constructed in 2007 and occupies one of the marina side houses. With a garden to the front of the house and a waterside veranda to the rear, the house provides well-appointed and spacious accommodation over three floors which showcase the attractive marina views from all the principal rooms.

    Entered at upper ground level, the lawned garden lies to the front of the house with a driveway, garage and pathway linking along the side of the house to the lower ground floor's 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 cloaks/WC, study and the kitchen breakfast room, to the full width oak floored sitting room from which doors open to a sheltered balcony with views over the marina. The kitchen has an extensive range of wall and base units with integrated appliances and a tiled floor.

    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 and adjoins a dressing room and an en suite bathroom, which is ‘Jack & Jill' with bedroom 4.

    Electric gates open to the Waters Edge development, to which a private lane leads to the properties. Driveway parking exists at the house leading to its garage, which adjoins the house.
    The aforementioned lawned garden lies to the front of the house.

I visited Waters Edge on a sunny autumn afternoon where the views across the water were simply breath-taking. The property is situated in a beautiful spot, secluded and peaceful, offering versatile accommodation with the mooring right an added benefit.
