There are two large double bedrooms on the ground floor, both of which enjoy windows overlooking the canal. There is a spacious bathroom on this floor, with a jacuzzi bath and separate shower.
Stairs rise to the first floor, where there is a truly fabulous open-plan living room, divided into sitting, dining, and kitchen areas. Part of the room is double height, and is overlooked by the galleried second floor room. Three large windows give stunning views of the canal, providing a wonderful space to entertain or relax.
Stairs rise from the living room to the mezzanine floor, a lovelt space which could be used as a further reception area, study, or studio, thanks to its bright skylight windows. It could also be used as an additional bedroom or guest suite, particularly as there is a separate cloakroom on this level.
The house enjoys use of the attractive communal lawned gardens, with a lovely patio area. There is also just enough space to put a bench beside the towpath, a perfect spot to sit with a glass of something refreshing in your hand, and watch the boats gliding by.
