There is also a pantry cupboard and large drawer for recycling bins.
The kitchen then opens out to the breakfast area which has a vaulted ceiling and is fully glazed and has tri fold doors to the patio and upper garden. A utility room with outside access is located off the kitchen with a range of cupboards and spaces for a washing machine and tumble dryer.
Steps to the upper ground floor lead to the upper landing
and double multi paned glazed doors to the sitting room.
This is a double aspect room with elevated views to the side
and across the river and beyond through the patio doors.
Through these doors is a large balcony which can be used for alfresco dining and runs the entire width of the house. There is also a feature fireplace with tiled hearth. Adjacent to the sitting room is a guest bedroom with patio doors to the balcony, and then a shower room.

The grounds to Mariners are beautifully kept and have been
maintained and well looked after over the years, giving
different lawned and seating areas, steps and pathways. On the upper part of the gardens and to one side is a multi

lighting, a timber shed and a greenhouse. From here is a
hidden gravel pathway behind a Laurel hedge which leads
you down to the lower part of the garden which is mainly
laid to lawn but displays many mature and established trees

the far right hand side. A little bridge crosses the former mill
stream to a wooded area and to the River Nene. There are
full riparian and fishing rights.
