Its anything like LARGE/HUGE or VAST but I'm going to use them and just cross my fingers I don't get into trouble.
Thoughtfully, brought back to life by the current occupiers you can literally feel the love that has gone into the renovations. Having been sympathetically restored with upgrades to include hard wired ethernet cables, under floor heating, solid oak doors and flooring, a second floor, modern kitchen with granite worktop and integrated appliances plus utility and two shower rooms one being an ensuite to the master bedroom. The property is listed meaning that all the changes that have been made behind its single storey exterior have been done with the upmost care whilst still creating a real wow moment when you walk in. I was blown away by the vast size of this plot, its huge and just like the gift that keeps on giving.
The property is accessed from the turning circle at Canal Foot onto the private drive which leads to a detached garage with two single up and over doors. Open to the canal and featuring a lock with a bench perfectly placed to enjoy the wildlife that lives here. The enclosed side and rear garden are accessed either through the property or a wooden gate to the side which allows them to be fully enclosed for safety. Mainly laid to lawn with two greenhouses, shed and ample seating area's to enjoy, offering rockeries packed with colour, fruit trees and vegetable plots plus a variety of berry plants. Lock Cottage is definitely one to see and we feel will exceed any buyers expectations.
