A former lock keeper’s house, referred to as a “hidden gem”, has been put up for sale on the banks of the River Stour in Nayland.
Lock Cottage was built as a lock keeper’s house in the early 19th century. It was one of 16 identical cabins to be built along this part of the river – and it is now one of the two remaining.

Despite its history, the property is not listed. It enjoys a beautiful picturesque view of the surrounding landscape, although part of its land is leased to the Environment Agency.
Inside, the cottage offers three reception rooms, including a living room, living room and separate dining room, as well as a lovely veranda and a modern, well-equipped kitchen with a Hotpoint oven and enough space for a refrigerator. / freezer and dishwasher.
There is also a shower room and a utility room on the ground floor.
Upstairs there are four bedrooms, one of which is en suite, and a family bathroom which has a separate bath and shower.
Several paths and lawns surround the property, which offers a magnificent view. Lock Pool Entrance Creek is immediately to the south and the River Stour is to the west.

Indicative price: £ 600,000
