Scotland Bridge Lock, Addlestone ( Sold )
Guide Price £250,000
2 Bedroom House Boat
FULL DESCRIPTION Located in an incredibly quiet spot, with a huge sun-trap of a garden (30m x 11m), but only ten minutes walk from West Byfleet station (28 mins to Waterloo using the fast service). Positioned privately at the end of a row of seven boats (no through path), Texa itself feels very spacious (ceiling is 2.4m at highest point; full boat dimensions 13.7m x 3.75m). Enter to the large kitchen-lounge with range cooker and fitted slimline dishwasher (both included in the sale). Kitchen table has uninterrupted views down the canal. Bedroom one is currently used as a shared children's bedroom, but could also be an ideal office or spare room. There's a spacious master bedroom, plus a bathroom with a shower, bath, sink and fully plumbed in macerator WC. On the far side of the garden is a 2015-constructed, high quality, double glazed (5m x 3.3m) garden cabin with French windows and large window overlooking the water. This is currently used as a playroom with a spare guest bed, but would equally be an excellent additional lounge area.
On the other side of the garden is a 2013-constructed garden cabin (4.5m x 3m), currently split into an office and a workshop. There are two other sheds on the property, too - always useful for boat life!
The canal is a quiet stretch with daily visits from ducks, swans, moorhen, cormorants and heron. Scotland Bridge Lock is a pleasant community with its own Residents' Association and regular social events.
Washer and drier are situated on deck outside the boat (in protective wooden casing). All electric, no gas. Super fast fibre optic broadband available.
Waitrose, Co-Op within short walking distance. Outstanding-rated Ofsted school West Byfleet Infants & Juniors and Fulbrook Secondary School (Ofted rated good) are very nearby. Numerous golf courses, Woking down centre and RHS Wisley Garden all within short drives.
Council tax around £120 PCM. Mooring £249 PCM to Surrey County Council - one of the cheapest moorings available in the south.
