Red October is a superb example of how houseboats are now becoming the alternative lifestyle. Commissioned and designed by the current owners Red has been built to an exacting high specification throughout. Occupying arguably the best position within the Marina she has outstanding panoramic views across the whole of the Marina. As you step on board there is a lovely deck area to sit out on to enjoy the sun and a glass of wine. Upon entering from the deck there are steps down to the large open plan living area with a quality fitted Howdens kitchen featuring a full height Neff Fridge freezer, Bosch double 3D oven, extractor fan, dishwasher, washer dryer and drinks cooler. This then flows nicely into the spacious living/dining area featuring Broadband/WiFi, telephone and TV points. Moving on to an inner hall this leads to a second bedroom/office, followed by a stylish fitted bathroom featuring a P-shape bath with a power shower. To the bow of the boat there is a double bedroom with doors opening out onto a second deck area to enjoy even further views. There are many fine finishing touches throughout, including LED spotlighting, privacy glazing and quality fitted carpets. In total there is approximately 480 sq.ft of living space. Additionally, Red October also benefits from being within a gated community, with allocated parking for two vehicles, outside storage, a lovely communal garden area shared between the owners of this highly desirable and secluded pontoon with moorings for just seven houseboats. The property is chain free. A viewing is highly advised. Priory Marina is regarded as one of the best marinas in the region and presently holds the prestigious four gold anchor scheme for marine excellence. Adjacent to the marina is the beautiful and peaceful Priory Country Park, which has Green Flag status. The nearby town of Sandy is home to the RSPB. Priory Marina is 1.3 mile from town centre and has excellent road links from both the M1 and A1, with mainline rail links to London (only 40 minutes’ travel time to St. Pancras), or to the Midlands and the East from railway stations in Bedford and Sandy.
