W. Berkshire, United Kingdom, House - single floor
This house is located in the historic market town of Hungerford, a town beautifully situated on the Kennet and Avon Canal. Hungerford is an hour by train from London and very close to the Wiltshire border. Hungerford claims many antique shops, an enviable location in rolling hills and easy access to the motorway. Lots of good pub walks start and end here.
The house has recently undergone major renovations and now features a lovely private garden, a modern kitchen and appliances and a double-sided woodstove in the wall between the kitchen and the living room. Three bathrooms have been noted. There is one full bathroom and two two-piece ones: one upstairs in the loft conversion and one in the utility room
Train service to London is hourly, with the station a ten-minute walk from the house.
Centrally located in "The Glebe" neighbourhood, the apartment overlooks the Rideau Canal. It is within easy walking distance of shops, galleries, etc, and an easy drive leads to beautiful countryside. The Gatineau Park with its walking and cycling and skiing trails, its many lakes and its lovely vistas is just across the Ottawa River in Quebec. Ottawa has great bicycle paths and walking trails. It is a very green and people-friendly city.
In winter, the city offers 7+Kms of skating along the Rideau Canal from January through February, crowned by the Winterlude festival in early February.
The apartment is south facing with an extended view of the Canal and the Driveway. It has laundry facilities and an exercise room.
Montreal and Toronto are within reasonable distance (1.5 hrs and 4.5 hours by car).
