Description

Water’s Edge is a beautiful canalside bungalow in a gorgeous rural location about 2 miles West of Nantwich between bridge numbers 8 and 9. It has a 95 foot frontage to the Llangollen Canal (properly known as the Llangollen Branch of the Shropshire Union Canal). It benefits from a 33 foot long boat house, a slipway, a landing stage and a lay-by or dock, and open views over the surrounding countryside.

Water’s Edge is a fabulous home which has been extensively updated and redecorated in recent years. Electrically operated gates lead onto brick block carriage drive, with car parking and turning areas, and an integral double garage to the left. From the garage, sliding doors open to the boathouse and slipway.

The entrance porch leads into a welcoming reception hall with a door to the rear garden straight ahead. On the right to the front there is a spacious sitting room with a brick chimney breast and a Stovax wood-burning stove. The sitting room adjoins a large sun room which could also be used as a dining room. It has huge sliding patio doors to the rear, with fabulous views of the garden and the canal. The kitchen is also at the rear with views over the canal. There is a separate laundry room across the hall from the kitchen.

The remaining rooms are arranged along an inner hall to the left. The spacious master bedroom benefits from a walk-in wardrobe, an ensuite shower room, and a bay window overlooking the garden and the canal. Bedrooms two and three are to the front, and have the use of a separate bathroom. At the end of the hallway there is a guest suite or annexe, comprising a large bedroom with views over the canal and garden, an en-suite bathroom, and a utility room, which could be converted into a kitchen. There is a door from the utility room into the garage.

The level gardens are beautifully landscaped, with well tended borders, specimen planting, and mature trees. The back garden is south-facing, with a stunning York stone terrace, a beautiful sheltered pergola providing peace and privacy, a floodlit water feature, a willow tree, a timber gazebo, and a large area of lawn. The canal stretches across the bottom of the garden, and here you will find the all-important decked landing stage for your boat.
