Do you dream of living surrounded by nature, watching ever changing scenery? Yes, then let us realise your vision; let us capture your imagination with this two bedroom home sweet floating home set on the river in a private gated community at Sawley Marina.

Sawley Marina is located on a navigational cut of the River Trent and is the largest inland Marina in the United Kingdom. Sitting on the borders of Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire you can be sure of some of the countries most scenic views locally and the River Soar, and River Derwent, are both nearby.

There's no closer view of wildlife in the water and in the air, than living on the water and family and friends you barely knew want to spend weekends visiting you on your scenic deck. River dwellers can open up their windows, drop a fishing line and at least try to catch dinner.

Crafting your vision with clean contemporary lines and the latest technology are these healthy, ethical homes that only enhance their surroundings. The outside hardwood exterior blends into the landscape and the minimalist open plan interior inspires calm.

Responsibly sourced sustainable materials built by craftsmen to standards that are in excess of most new build homes and come with a ten year warranty. Designed and built to last a century with adequate maintenance and upkeep.

Visit our floating show home and let Towns & Crawford Estate Agents present to you these green Eco friendly, low carbon, floating homes for sale.
