The property is quietly located at the end of one of the village's most prestigious private roads where a pedestrian path leads directly down into the central village area.

The views are ever changing with a hive of boating activity and have to be experienced to fully appreciate and mere photography does not do them justice.

The rear gardens are landscaped with meandering paths to areas of shrub, mature bushes and flowers with areas of lawn and an ornamental pond to the lower area. The front gardens are bordered by fence with mature shrubs and pathways. To the side of the property is a boiler / utility room which includes a pressurised hot water tank, oil fired central heating boiler, two radiators and plumbing for a washing machine.

Detached Garage / Studio  
Located at the end of the private road and adjacent to the property is the recently rebuilt 27'7 tandem garage which has two timber opening doors, light and electric, a window and a useful 12'1 x 6'11 store at one end. Stairs lead up to a landing area to the studio which has a modern en suite bathroom and large 21'1 x 13' kitchen / living / bedroom area with an engineered oak floor, all under an insulated and curved 'living' roof. The L-shaped kitchen is in a shaker style. To the southern elevation are double glazed patio doors leading onto a balcony offering fantastic river, countryside, village, harbour and bay views. It is warmed by night storage heaters and is a perfect area as a guest suite / 4th bedroom.
