When we last visited Braunston, I decided I’d love to live in one of these houses on Brindley Quays, and only a few weeks later one has come up for sale! This fantastic property is ready to move straight in, and enjoys stunning unobstructed views over the main basin of Braunston Marina, famous for its annual Heritage Rally and other boating events. Braunston is a delightful village set on a hill where the Grand Union Canal meets the Oxford Canal. There are two canalside pubs within walking distance, The Boathouse and The Admiral Nelson, and a fabulous cafe on a narrowboat moored just outside the marina.
The property is approached via a block paved driveway with a large integral garage. It is arranged over three floors and the ground floor has potential to be used as an AirBnB or independent annexe. Through the front door is a generous hallway, with a door to the garage on the left, stairs to the first floor, and a downstairs shower room to the right. Straight ahead, and overlooking the marina, there is a ground floor double bedroom, and a generous utility room with potential to use as a kitchenette. A door opens from the utility room to the rear garden. The garden is open plan, perfect for sitting out to watch the comings and goings in the marina.
The first floor is arranged as an open plan u-shaped living room. To the rear is the sitting area, which has two Juliette balconies enjoying amazing views over the Marina. To the front is a dining and kitchen area with views over a small copse.
On the top floor to the rear is the fabulous master bedroom suite, with a fantastic feature window and a Juliette balcony enjoying views across the Marina and an en-suite room. The second bedroom is to the front, with an identical feature window, and a pleasant outlook towards the copse. There is a separate bathroom on this floor.
