Property Description

An extremely rare opportunity to purchase this LOCK KEEPERS COTTAGE, situated on the banks of the River Lea next to Aqueduct Lock, and occupying approximately one third of an acre \'island plot\' that enjoys riverside and lake views. The property is located in truly rural position reached only along the western side of the river bank via Wharf Road, and provides a rare purchase for those with imagination and who are specifically looking for a project with potential to carry out sympathetic improvement and possible extensions to their future home, this obviously being subject to the usual and applicable planning permission and consents. The property due to its position and location has mains electricity, drainage via cesspit and its own well with purification system. Viewing is strictly via appointment and via Butlers as vendors sole agent.
