Aspire are delighted to present this very substantial and beautifully maintained and decorated property. It has gas fired central heating throughout, controlled in three different zones: downstairs, upstairs and the self-contained annex, which was part of a two storey extension. This 1970's house has a vast number of large windows allowing the natural light to pour in from every aspect, making the interior light and bright even on dull days. Most of the downstairs doors are natural wood or half glass and timber. The back garden has been open to the public on Oundle Open Gardens Day, because of its quarter of a century history of becoming a wildlife haven. It is completely pesticide free and its intricate areas are a joy to anyone interested in nature at its finest.
Oundle is a historic market town on the eastern side of Northamptonshire, just five miles from the Cambridgeshire border. It has excellent schooling for all ages, including the prestigious Oundle Public School. Among the town's facilities, there are a variety of independent shops, three supermarkets, two excellent butchers, two chemists, various public houses, some with accommodation, and a hotel. The town sits on the river Nene and has an attractive water-side leisure facility. It is conveniently situated seven miles from the A14 and ten miles from the A1 motorway. Nearby Peterborough, Kettering, and Corby all offer direct train links to London in under an hour.
The entrance to the property is via a partially glazed front door and glass porch, which has terracotta floor tiles. It leads straight into the spacious main hall with its under-stairs cupboard and oak wooden flooring. The stairs are straight ahead, the lounge to the right and kitchen, utility room, study and self-contained annex to the left.
From the hallway is this wow factor of a kitchen family room that spans the depth of the house, and is filled with natural light from the picture window at the front of the property, to the extensive range of windows, two large sky-light windows, and French doors at the back, which form part of this double height extension.
The kitchen has numerous ivory coloured base units in a Shaker style with worktops in beech wood. The large island is a real centrepiece of the kitchen, with attractive beech worktop, and storage below, this island also offers casual seating. and a place to gather around in this gloriously light, bright kitchen. The kitchen also boasts a large gas Range cooker with six burners and a double Belfast style sink with white tiled splash-back. The oak flooring continues from the hall into the kitchen.

A small flower bed lies close to the property and the front door is accessed via a sheltered porch set into the house. There are two external lights. The annex door can be accessed via a path which runs to one side of the garage.
One of the most impressive gardens we have had the pleasure to showcase. This is a garden that has been chemical free for over 25 years. It has been beautifully landscaped with an amazing eye for detail to include a wildlife haven as well as enjoying flowers, fruit trees, dry stone walls, and a vegetable garden. The space is quite deceiving and is a stunning feature of this property.
This fine property is in an ideal position, located at the top of the cul-de-sac and therefore very private.
