Warmington is a delightful village about two and a half miles east of the town of Oundle and near the Cambridgeshire border. The village, which can trace its roots back to before Domesday, has within it a substantial number of historic buildings as well as archaeological sites. Modern-day Warmington has a shop, Post Office, butcher's shop, garage, a thriving village hall, and a popular public house with an excellent restaurant.
The village has a small primary school, but the nearest secondary schools being in Oundle, together with the renowned Oundle Public School.
Trains from the city of Peterborough, which is about 12 miles north east of the village, run to London in under an hour, and the A1 motorway is situated about five miles to the east of Warmington.
This semi-detached, four-bedroomed Victorian house, with its original A-frame tiled roof, was later improved and enlarged in the 20th century by adding a two-storey flat roofed extension. It has full oil fired central heating and relatively new double-glazed windows throughout.
The property is situated alongside a quiet country village road from where a wrought iron gate allows access into the front garden. The half-glazed front door is reached via the flagstones.
On entering the property, the hall is divided between the stairs on the right, and the long hall to the left with its Karndean flooring, radiator and heating thermostat. There are also windows on each side of the front door, allowing a flood of light to pour in.
The first room on the left of the hall is the modern, well-equipped kitchen with a window at the front of the property. This room has terracotta floor tiles, a built-in dishwasher, two separate spaces for fridge and freezer, beech-coloured wall and base units cupboards above with two pull out storage units and a tall pull-out larder, a split-level induction electric hob with hood and extractor fan and an electric double oven. The work surfaces are granite-effect with matching built-in kitchen table, and a one and a half porcelain sink unit with mixer tap. The kitchen was designed and fitted by Kuchen Kraft, Oundle. The room also has a television aerial socket, six down-lighters, one central pendulum light, an abundance of electrical sockets, and a stable door.
At the end of the hall is a bright and spacious dining room with a single door to the patio and back garden, and two large windows on either side of the door, coving to the ceiling, radiator and a central pendant light. The Karndean flooring continues from the hall into the dining room.
Turning left from the dining room, the house layout flows through a large opening into the carpeted, character lounge, which is sizeable, yet cosy. Its specific features are a beamed ceiling and real fire stone fireplace and surround. A low double radiator lies beneath the long window, which looks out onto the side of the property, and another smaller window further along on the same wall. The lounge has another single radiator on the other side of the room.
On the opposite side of the hall is a short hallway leading to the half-glazed back door, to the garden, and two internal doors; one opens into an extensive storage room and the other houses a WC, pedestal wash basin, radiator and opaque window. The flooring in this area consists of light-coloured ceramic tiles. A further cupboard is situated above the back door, which houses the fusebox and electric meter. Nearby is another door, under the stairs, in which the immersion/hot water tank sits. There is also a water tank in the attic.
This is situated immediately on the right on entering the front door. It has storage units above and below, a window to the front of the property with a blind, and space with plumbing for a washing machine and space and vent for a tumble dryer.
The stairs are straight with a light-coloured carpet. The landing extends the whole length of the property, is carpeted similarly, with windows at either end, two useful plug points and a radiator.
This spacious, light double bedroom has two fitted, mirrored wardrobes, with rails above and below, a built-in chest of drawers with laundry box, and a radiator. The half-tiled en-suite room consists of a fully tiled cubicle with power shower, extractor fan, pedestal wash basin and WC.

The good sized bathroom is at the front of the house and is equipped with a corner bath, step-up shower cubicle, pedestal wash basin, WC and radiator. The window overlooks the front garden.
The rear garden is established and secure with a part-walled and fenced perimeter. There is a path to the brick shed housing the boiler with an adjoining oil tank Furthermore, there are two sizeable outbuildings with plenty of potential for renovation. The garden is mostly laid to lawn, with flower beds and shrubs around the edge, with the added features of a sturdy walnut tree and wildlife pond. A low box hedge borders some of the garden, and a greenhouse has been erected behind the garage. The patio extends along the back of the house to a gate, which leads to the front of the property.
The front garden is small but established, with a few shrubs. A low stone wall abuts the roadside, and there is space for three cars in front of the single garage. The garage has a door and window at the back of the garage to the garden, and an up-and-over door at the front.
