Guide Price £450,000 - £480,000. Knight Bishop are delighted to bring to the market on a chain free basis, a rare opportunity to acquire an idyllic three bedroom cottage with direct access to the River Lea.

Constructed in 1826 as a workers cottage, the house offers well-proportioned rooms with many period features including sash windows, coved ceilings, centre roses and a beautiful cast iron fire place in the master bedroom. In the large living room there's a wood burner making winter nights a cozy affair, a separate fully fitted kitchen with integrated appliances, two double bedrooms with built in storage cupboards, a single bedroom / study / guest room and a bathroom. The rear garden is well stocked with both lawn and patio areas.

Without doubt the main draw of this home is its location. Located on a private gated road, the property faces the Lea navigation canal but also has direct access to the river Lea to the rear where neighbours swim, fish and boat throughout the year. Further benefits include a well-established garden and allocated parking within a private car parking area.

Located an 8 minute walk from Enfield Lock Station [offering fast trains to Liverpool Street and Stanstead Airport] the property provides spacious family accommodation and in the current climate presents an outstanding opportunity for those who work from home to do so in a truly unique setting.

Government Row is within a short walking distance of many local amenities including a doctors surgery, gymnasium, a public house, and as mentioned Enfield Lock Station. Excellent road links provide easy access to the A10 & M25 however if you are a keen cyclist or runner, the tow path on the canal will enable a healthy, alternative route into the city.

Great schools are also within close proximity such as; Freshsteps Independent School which is rated 'Ofsted Outstanding' and The Prince of Wales Primary School.

Vendors comment, 'there's a very strong sense of community in Government Row and it's never more evident than in the summer when young and old jump off their jetty's and swim in the river. This doesn't' just cement friendship and neighbourliness, it connects you to nature in a wonderful way. If we didn't' have to move because of a growing family, we wouldn't.'
