Just over a mile from the centre of the historic market town of Oundle on the River Nene in Northamptonshire, this four-bedroom family home is in a very popular residential area.
On the left, when turning into Rockingham Hills from the town centre, the symmetrical façade of Northamptonshire stone construction and dormer windows is immediately appealing. Double-glazed hardwood windows and gas-fired central heating ensure year-round comfort. The front of the property is gravelled, leading to a single garage and shed. On the ground floor, you will find a study, generous living room, dining or family room, cloakroom, kitchen with dining area and utility room. Upstairs has a master suite, two further double bedrooms, a single room, and a family bathroom.
There is off-road parking on the driveway for multiple vehicles. There is a single garage on the right, a shed on the left and a covered porch.
The large entrance hall leads to a dining room or family room on your left and the kitchen on your right. The hallway continues to the cloakroom, an under-stair area for hanging coats and storing shoes, a spacious living room and study to the rear and side of the property. Oak plank effect vinyl flooring gives continuity through the hall and family room.
Windows to the front and side of the property make the kitchen a lovely light space for cooking and mealtimes, with plenty of room for a family dining table. White Shaker style wall and base units on three sides have woodblock work surfaces and cream metro tile splashbacks, all complemented by mahogany effect vinyl flooring continuing into the utility room.
The large cooking range has five gas rings and an electric plate, two ovens, grill and draw with a contemporary glass and brushed stainless steel extractor hood above. Plumbing for an under-counter dishwasher is next to the stainless-steel sink with arched mixer tap and drainer beneath the side window. There is also an integral wine fridge.
The large utility room with a window to the side and a partially glazed door to the patio has enough space for an American-style fridge freezer. A stainless-steel sink and drainer with chrome taps is set into the woodblock worktop with a cupboard beneath and under-counter plumbing and electricity for a washing machine and tumble dryer. The central heating gas boiler is installed on the wall above the worktop.
Opposite the kitchen and to the front of the property, this flexible space would make a spacious dining room and is currently used as a family room. An electric pebble-effect heater adds atmosphere and warmth for cool evenings.
The cloakroom has quarry-effect tiles and a white low-level WC and wash hand basin with chrome fittings and patterned cream tile splashback.
Across the width of the property to the rear, large double sliding doors open on to the patio for indoor and outdoor living during the summer months. A further window to the side of the property adds to the open feel. An inset wood-burner stove makes a really nice focal point.
Leading from the living room and with a window to the side of the property, this cosy room is currently used as a single downstairs bedroom but would also be perfect as a home office.
Carpeted stairs lead to the galleried first-floor landing with a hatch to the loft space and an airing cupboard housing the hot water tank. From the landing doors access the further single and double bedrooms.
With dual aspect windows, the spacious master suite has two fitted wardrobes. In the large en-suite bathroom you can enjoy luxurious relaxation in the P-shaped jacuzzi bath which has a curved glass panel and shower over the bath. Large cream wall tiles and oak wood-effect vinyl flooring complement the chrome heated towel rail, modern low-level WC and a stylish round wash-hand basin on a wooden pedestal with cupboard beneath the obscure-glazed window.
To the front of the property, a further good-sized double room has a built-in wardrobe.
To the rear of the property with a window above the patio, this double room has a single built-in wardrobe.
The fourth bedroom is a single bedroom overlooking the side of the property, also with built-in cupboard.
The family bathroom has a large white P-shaped bath with curved glass panel and shower above, low-level WC and a large chrome heated towel rail. Beneath the window, the built-in wash-hand basin has cupboards beneath, finished with patterned white tiles and oak wood-effect vinyl flooring.
The generous gravelled area to the front is ideal for a busy family’s parking needs. A shed is tucked into the left, and a single garage with electric powered door and gate to the rear garden are to the right. The south-facing garden is laid to lawn bordered by mature hedges and fencing. The decked patio has a covered pergola and a footpath leads to a second shed and to rear access for the garage, which has boarded roof space and rubberised flooring.
Home to the prestigious Oundle School, the town has regular markets and festivals and Barnwell Country Park is just over two miles away. There are excellent independent shops, cafes and restaurants and two supermarkets. The rail network can be easily accessed from Corby, Stamford, Kettering and Peterborough, which are all within 15 miles, and there are good links to major roads.
This attractive four-bedroom property will make a lovely forever home for a family wanting to enjoy life as part of the community in an historic market town.
