This fabulous former British Waterways property was built in the early 1800s. It stands in three acres of land, on the towpath side of the Grand Union canal near Copt Heath Wharf. The property is approached through double gates along a long driveway. There are superb views from all sides of the property across the canal and open countryside.
The house is arranged over three floors. On the ground floor the large reception hall leads to a good sized sitting room with a wood burner and windows overlooking the canal to the side and front. The spacious kitchen breakfast room is to the rear. At one end French doors open out to a raised terrace. At the other end a stable door opens into a conservatory to the side. There is a separate utility room, and a downstairs cloakroom.
On the lower ground floor there are two open plan rooms with a vaulted ceiling. These rooms provide excellent storage and are currently used as a gym and study. Wide arched French doors opens out to the back garden.
Stairs lead from the hallway to the first floor where there is a double bedroom with a window overlooking the canal to the front, a double bedroom and a single bedroom to the side, and a large double bedroom to the rear. There is a separate bathroom, and a separate shower room.
