Sowerbys are delighted to offer a most unique property in a fascinating location overlooking the River Nene and Sutton Bridge 'Crosskeys Bridge' a Grade ll* listed swing road bridge.  The house itself was the former Bridge-keepers cottage from an older bridge that spanned the river and dates to 1840 (also listed at Grade II).

The house would be of particular interest to those with an interest in boating or shipping as many hours can be spent watching the river from a raised terrace and the property also has a private pontoon jetty and mooring allowing very easy access via boat in The Wash.  The current vendor has enjoyed fishing in the wash for over twenty years. The property is a delightful cottage offering three reception rooms, kitchen breakfast room, downstairs bathroom and three first floor bedrooms.
