Full description

Sitting on the edge of a canal is this beautifully restored 17th Century Lengthsman Cottage. The property maintains many of its original features and benefits from stunning views to the rear.

Accommodation - Entering into the open plan kitchen diner from the rear of the property you are immediately greeted with a wealth of original character features. Off the kitchen is the utility room and the dining room with vaulted ceilings. There is also a WC and two further living rooms downstairs. The original front door leads out onto the canalside towpath. Each room downstairs benefits from wood burning stoves, emphasising the character feeling throughout the property. Heading upstairs there is a recently refitted bathroom and 3 large double bedrooms. The bedrooms still have their original wooden beams and vaulted ceilings, as well as 2 of the bedrooms leading out onto balconies. There is also access to a further space from the 2nd bedroom which is perfect for either more storage or as a hobby room.

Outside - Externally the property has a large lawn area adjacent to the property as well as 2 garages and a large variety of outbuildings which can provide a multitude of uses such as a home office, or even a man-cave!

Sellers Insight - 'Being a boater, it was the location of this historic property beside the canal which first attracted me to Canalside Cottage' says the current owner, 'as well as the character of the cottage itself. Originally a lengthsman’s cottage, this centuries old property belonged to the man who looked after that particular stretch of water along the canal. It even has outbuildings and stables which used to house the horses who pulled the boats.'

Since moving in, the owner has lovingly renovated and restored the property, keeping many of the original features. 'The cottage has a real sense of age and character,' they say, 'with exposed beams, an AGA, and even a well in the garden. I have lifted every corner of this building and know every inch, having fallen in love with the cottage more and more as the years have gone by.'

The gardens too have much to offer, in keeping with the character and charm of the cottage itself. 'The outdoor space is mostly laid to lawn to the front, side and rear,' says the owner, 'with beautifully planted borders and even an archway of roses. A patio area provides the perfect place for al fresco dining and summer entertaining, being an extension of the indoor space.'

'The location of the property provides the best of both worlds,' the owner continues, 'being remote and peaceful yet within a 10-15 minute walk of the town centre for all amenities and shopping facilities.' Nuneaton itself has a range of entertainment and leisure opportunities, with the A5, M6 and M69 easily accessible for neighbouring cities and the M1. Nuneaton train station offers connections to Birmingham, Coventry, Leicester and London. Schools are excellent in the area, with Weddington Road Primary school, Higham Lane school and North Warwickshire & Hinckley College all nearby.

Best thing about the local area:
'I love being so close to the canal and watching the boats go by, whilst remaining within walking distance of the hustle and bustle of the town.'

Favourite room:
'The conservatory is stunning on a sunny day or summer evening, being a truly peaceful place to spend time.'

What they will miss most
'Having put so much love and care into bringing the cottage back to its former glory, I will miss every part of it greatly.'

Memorable event
'We have hosted some really good parties here, the spacious downstairs living accommodation opening out onto the patio and lawns for seamless summer entertaining.'

Location - Canalside cottage is situated in an idyllic location to the north of Nuneaton of Tuttle Hill yet only a 10-15 minute walk from the town centre. The property also provides great access to the A5, M42, M6 and M69. Nuneaton train station offers connections to Birmingham, Coventry, Leicester and London. Schools are excellent in the area, with Weddington Road Primary school, Higham Lane school and North Warwickshire & Hinckley College all nearby.
