60 Belmont Road, Stoke on Trent
Trent and Mersey Canal
Offside Water's Edge
This semi-detached house in Stoke-on-Trent has plenty to offer the canal enthusiast. It backs on to the Trent and Mersey canal in the heart of the potteries, and enjoys a large canalside deck with potential for moorings subject to CRT permissions. It is only a short walk from the house to the Etruria Industrial Museum which features a canal warehouse, check office and gauging dock, and houses the only remaining operational Steam Driven Potters’ Mill in the world. A short walk in the opposite direction takes you to moorings at Festival Park Marina. All the facilities you might need from cinemas to eateries are easily accessible, either in Hanley town centre or in the immediate area.
In front of the house is a flint shingled front garden with space for two cars. The front door opens to a hallway. To the left is a door into the kitchen diner and straight ahead is a door to the sitting room. The kitchen diner is L-shaped with the well fitted kitchen area to the front and the dining area to the rear, with double patio doors opening out to a decking area in the garden. The sitting room is a good sized room with a classic coal effect gas fire, and patio doors opening into the conservatory. The conservatory is a good size with patio doors opening out to a spacious decking area with plenty of space for outdoor furniture. Stairs rise from the lounge to the first floor, where the landing leads to three bedrooms, two small doubles to the front, and a larger double with two windows to the rear. Finally there is a modern family bathroom.
The back garden is fenced on each side and well tended. There is a decked seating area immediately behind the house, descending to a gravelled area, and beyond this a good sized lawn. At the bottom of the garden beside the canal is another large deck with a gazebo for entertaining or relaxing with a cheeky drink. There is an excellent outlook up and down the canal, and although there is an industrial estate opposite, this is well screened by trees and hedges.
