This impressively large three-storey house is in one of Oundle’s most sought-after residential areas. Just five years old, it is decorated and carpeted throughout in light neutral tones, ready for its new owners to make their mark.
Positioned in a quiet corner, this property is in smart red brick with stone window sills and smooth grey roof tiles with roof-mounted solar panels. A tarmac drive to the side leads to an attached garage. With gas-fired central heating and modern double-glazing throughout it will be a comfortable home throughout the year.
The ground floor has a well-equipped kitchen and dining area, cloakroom, under-stair cupboard and living room with French doors to the garden. The first floor has two double bedrooms, a large single bedroom and a family bathroom. The top floor is given over to an impressively large master suite with walk-in dressing room and en-suite shower room.
The property has an attractively arranged front aspect, accessed from a quiet corner of Creed Road. A well-established buckthorn bush is beside the front door, which has two glass panels at the top, giving extra natural daylight to the hallway.
The hallway is finished with a light aged-oak effect laminate floor, providing access to the cloakroom, stairs, kitchen/dining area and living room at the rear of the property.
One of the winning features of this property is the large bay window to the front, which makes this space open and light, providing the perfect spot for a dining table with down-lighters above.
The Ferrara Oak kitchen units with brushed chrome fingertip handles are along three sides, offset by elegant and durable Antique Messina worktops and splashbacks. The floor is finished with limestone-effect tiles in natural tones.
This practical space includes a built-in fridge freezer, dishwasher next to the stainless-steel sink, and drainer with arched chrome mixer tap. An electric oven and gas hob are positioned beneath a brushed chrome extractor hood. Space and plumbing are available for an under-counter washing machine.
The large cloakroom will provide a good place to hang warm winter coats. It has a white modern low-level WC and basin with chrome fittings, an extractor fan and cream ceramic tiled floor.
The full-width living room overlooks the secluded back garden. Double French doors open onto the patio and are flanked by further windows. Its generous size makes it ideal for relaxing and socialising.
U-shaped stairs rise from the hallway to the first-floor landing with a further U-shaped flight of stairs to the second-floor master suite. Useful storage is provided by a mid-landing cupboard, and a further cupboard houses the water tank, specially designed to take advantage of the roof-mounted solar panels.
This double bedroom, overlooking the garden, has a double fitted wardrobe and space for additional furniture.
A large single bedroom also overlooks the garden.
The bathroom, at the front of the property, has an opaque glazed window, down-lights, and an extractor fan. A modern look is achieved with bright white wall tiles and a contemporary white suite with chrome fittings comprising a bath, with glass panel and power shower above, low-level WC, basin and heated chrome towel rail. Cream floor tiles, in an attractive diamond pattern, are the finishing touch.
A further good-sized double bedroom overlooks the front of the property.
This large, double-aspect suite occupies all of the second floor. It features a walk-in dressing room with Velux window. The en-suite shower room has an over-sized shower unit with power shower, glass panels with chrome trim and modern white low-level WC, and basin with chrome fittings and a chrome heated towel rail. A ceiling panel provides access to the roof space.
The footpath to the front of the property leads to a tarmac drive and single garage with up-and-over door. The roof space in the garage could be boarded to provide additional storage.
The garden at the back is deceptively large, extending behind the garage to create a sheltered area that could be transformed into an outdoor living space. The French doors from the living room open onto a patio, and a path leads to a door at the rear of the garage. Currently laid to lawn, this west-facing garden is a tempting blank canvas for a keen gardener.
Oundle offers excellent amenities including a primary school, middle school, and senior comprehensive school, as well as churches, restaurants, pubs, cafés, a range of independent shops, and three supermarkets. There is a lively social life with regular markets and festivals and lovely surrounding countryside along the river Nene.
