The property is approached over a long driveway, which is a D-class road, maintainable by the highway authority and which winds its way across farmland to a peaceful rural position next to the Bascote Locks, surrounded by open countryside. The property was sympathetically refurbished in 1997/98, and the family room has been added by the present owners and retains many original features, such as the bay window, which overlooks the canal, from which the lock keeper would collect the tolls from passing canal boats.

The house is light and airy and completely secluded in this picturesque location, with plantation shutters to some windows. The property has fibre to the property, offering high-speed broadband connection for a buyer wanting to work from home in the seclusion and peace that the property offers.

The kitchen has a range of units, cooker, an induction hob and extractor and a window at the front of the property. Dining room with original door to the rear, exposed beams, terracotta tiled floor, fitted corner cabinets and a dual aspect. The sitting room also has a dual aspect and a fireplace with a log-burning stove. Downstairs shower room. The family room, with under-floor heating, faces south and east with a large roof lantern, flooding the room with light, fitted oak bookshelves. It might be suitable to connect to the kitchen to give an open-plan kitchen/family room. Utility closet with plumbing for washing machine.

The principal bedroom has far-reaching views over the canal lock and the surrounding countryside. Bedroom two with dual aspect overlooking both the canal lock and front garden. Bedroom three. Family bathroom.

Outside there is a detached workshop/laundry/office with a window overlooking the garden. This used to be the old washhouse. There was planning permission, which has now lapsed, for a larger extension to the south side of the cottage.

Gardens and grounds

From the front gate, there is a path leading down the centre of the lawn to the front of the property and around to the workshop and sun terrace. The garden runs alongside the canal and is mainly laid to lawn with several mature trees, including beech, copper sycamore, willow and drumhead cherry. There is hawthorn hedging to the perimeter. The garden is also well stocked with tree peonies and bulbs, which come into bloom in the springtime. Garden stores. Well.

Next to the canal is a small blue brick terrace overlooking the water. The property has the benefit of a right to moor outside The Toll House, subject to a reduced mooring fee. There is also a terrace at the side of the property with a raised flower bed on one side. The property has three allocated parking spaces situated just off the lane.

The property also benefits from the right to use a wooded paddock area extending alongside the canal, belonging to the Canals and River Trust, beyond the garden at no cost, on which there is a field shelter.

The Toll House is situated next to Bascote Locks and the Grand Union Canal in open countryside in a rural location. Bascote, a hamlet situated between Southam and Leamington Spa. The village of Long Itchington is two miles away and has a general store, post office, church and public house. Leamington Spa, which is approximately seven miles away, has a wider selection of shopping and leisure facilities, as well as Stratford-upon-Avon, Bicester Village and Cheltenham further afield.
