Islip is a popular village location that offers two pub/restaurants, a children's park, a hairdressing salon, beauty salon, sports field and historic church. It is situated one mile from the market town of Thrapston, and is a short drive from both Kettering and Corby, both of which benefit from mainline train links to central London in under an hour. There are many village events held throughout the year, and Islip has a vibrant community spirit of which the locals are very proud.
Numerous footpaths and bridleways are easily accessed from the village, through the beautiful Northamptonshire countryside, which is on the doorstep of this property. This spacious home offers fantastic value for money, and is an opportunity to put your own stamp on the property, in order to create a space that works for your family.
The white UPVC front door opens into the bright hallway with laminate flooring. Stairs rise to the first floor, and doors lead to the reception room from the hall. There is space under the staircase to create storage or to hang coats.
The laminate flooring continues into the spacious living room. There is a large window to the front that overlooks the garden and driveway. A feature fireplace with a marble and stainless steel surround is the focal point in this spacious room, which can be used as a living and/or dining room.
The galley kitchen overlooks the rear garden. There is a range of wall and base units for storage, and plenty of worktop space. There is a free-standing electric double oven with hob, and stainless steel extractor fan above. A space is available in the kitchen for a dishwasher, tall fridge/freezer and washing machine, however, there is also space in the utility area for a washing machine. The floor is tiled with neutral coloured tiles. The back door leads to the rear garden.
The tiled floor continues into the cloakroom/WC. This room consists of a low-level WC and wash hand basin, and a frosted window is at the rear of the property. The utility area is a useful space for washing machine and it currently houses the boiler.
The master bedroom has a large window to the rear elevation. It is a good-sized double and the adjoining airing cupboard on the landing could easily be incorporated into the room to create a walk-in wardrobe. Open to the bedroom is a double walk-in shower cubicle with an electric shower, which is fully tiled and has a glass screen.
A further good-sized light double room to the front of the property.
This is a single room with a built-in storage cupboard and window overlooking the front of the property.
The bathroom has a white three piece bathroom suite. A shower is over the bath and the water-sensitive areas are tiled. There is also a pedestal hand basin and low level WC. A frosted window is to the rear elevation.
The real bonus to this property is the outside space. Large enough in the rear garden to house a spacious shed, a covered decked seating area (which previously housed a hot tub), and a fully functional bar hut! The garden is low maintenance and mainly laid to gravel. A gated side access leads to the driveway at the front of the property. The garden is fully fenced and secure. The front garden has some planting with established shrubs and trees. The corner plot gives the buyer plenty of options to develop this space further.
This semi-detached home is set back from the road, and being a corner plot, has additional outside space to play with! This house would benefit from some cosmetic work and updating, but it is a rare opportunity to find a property of this size and location that a buyer can undoubtedly add value to. It has great potential for improvement or even extension. This property is a "must view"!
