The Canal House is a Georgian property built in 1820 and was once a hotel. Since that time it has been made into 6 fabulous apartments. It is an incredibly beautiful property that is situated right on the water's edge of the Grand Union Canal infact, it is literally in the water!
The apartment for sale is the biggest out of the 6 and it also includes both the Leasehold and Freehold. It is 2 floors with the majority of the living spaces at ground level by the canal. The property comprises of 2 double bedrooms; one on each floor; one with an ensuite and the other with a shower room. Another separate toilet is located at ground level. The kitchen is unusually spacious for an apartment and has a walk in pantry area. French doors lead into the lounge area that features two interesting alcoves of which were once coal stores for the hotel. One of these has been set up as a study. Another set of French doors take you from the lounge area into a private conservatory where the sliding doors lead you directly to the water's edge. This is a very relaxing space with a real ivy garden wall. The layout of the property is clever as it enables you to create a 'flow through' affect from the kitchen, right through to the conservatory offering a large entertaining area, or you can equally have cosy spaces by closing the doors to each room. It's also very relaxing in either conservatory (small one off the main bedroom too!) watching the holiday makers on their narrow boats as well as appreciating the ducks and swans at your door!
The property is decorated to a high standard and the unusual layout gives a great sense of space as well as privacy. It's a 5 minute walk to the Leamington Spa train station taking you directly to Birmingham or London and a 7 minute walk to Leamington High St. Buses almost at the door and restaurants, shops, Warwick University, galleries and tourist sites are all within easy walking distance.
The property is currently also a very successful and award winning holiday let business with the status of 'Super Host' being awarded from both AirBnB and Holiday Lettings. It could be sold fully furnished as literally a 'plug and play' business opportunity as the occupancy is increasing every year as well as a number of annual returning guests. A very, very good income generating opportunity. The price guide does not include the property as fully furnished and we're happy to discuss this further.
It is incredibly unique and unusual, full of character features, space and certainly has the wow factor. There's nothing quite like it. It's the kind of property that you feel as though you're permanently on holiday!
We are buying a property in France and that is the only reason it is on the market.
