Stunning countryside home up for sale for £2.5m – but it’s completely SURROUNDED by water with only a narrow driveway
A COUNTRYSIDE home that’s completely surrounded by water meadows has gone inside the market for £2.5million.
The aptly-named Water’s Edge is a Sixties-built home that sits on a plot of land in the midst of over 100 acres of tranquil lakes.
The distant property close to the village of Langtoft, Lincs, is reached by a skinny driveway that connects to the primary avenue.
It has been owned by the same household for about 90 years, but is now being bought.
The household initially used the location for gravel extraction from the Thirties to the ’70s and via that point they constructed the 4 mattress room home on the land.
After the extraction was achieved, the lakes had been created.
In the sooner, two lakes have been used for crusing actions and three have been used for ‘low-key’ trout and coarse fishing.
And the primary 33-acre lake south of the home is a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest.
Sitting on a plot of land just below 1.5 acres, the home is more likely to be refurbished and restyled or doubtlessly completely modified, matter to planning permission.
The property has a entrance room with triple aspect home home home windows overlooking the lakes, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, two bedrooms and a toilet on the underside flooring, with one completely different two bedrooms and a toilet upstairs.
There will likely be an hooked up double storage.
Chris Longstaff, of Longstaff property brokers, talked about: “Water’s Edge is type of distinctive for this a a a part of the world. It is completely unspoilt and has by no means been inside the market before.
“You get 135 acres and 104 acres of that’s water. It’s an idyllic location.
“It’s a tremendous opportunity and will likely appeal to either a private buyer who wants that peace and solitude or someone who wants to use it commercially and maybe build log cabins and all the things that go with tourism and leisure.
“In current years there was low-key fishing on two of the lakes but aside from that nature is completely in value at the moment.
“It is a real haven for wildlife, they obviously get a huge amount of waterfowl.”
