This lovely two-bedroom Victorian terraced cottage is just 10 minutes’ walk from the centre of the historic market town of Oundle on the river Nene in Northamptonshire.
Light neutral decorations and traditional features along with high-quality fittings throughout means this property is in 'move-in' condition. The bright hallway leads to a living room, dining room, modern kitchen, and cloakroom. Upstairs provides two generous double bedrooms and a contemporary bathroom. Many of the sash windows are high-quality double-glazed replacements with a woodgrain-effect finish, thoroughly in-keeping with the period of the property. Outside there is a tranquil enclosed south-facing garden to the rear with a patio, lawn, well-planted borders and shed.
The centre of the popular market town of Oundle is a short walk away. This lively and welcoming community enjoys regular markets and festivals and offers a range of independent shops, cafes, and restaurants. The lakes, riverbank and meadows of Barnwell Country Park are just over two miles away. Corby, Stamford, Kettering, and Peterborough are all within 15 miles, providing access to the rail network and with good links to major roads.
The glazed door and skylight add welcoming brightness to the hallway. Refurbished original floorboards in the hall and reception rooms provide contemporary continuity and style throughout the ground floor.
Light floods into the living room through the large double-glazed sash bay window at the front of the property. Alcove shelving and television aerial sockets on both sides of the chimney breast mean that there is plenty of flexibility for the layout of this airy room. The open fireplace is suitable for wood or coal fires in addition to the gas fired central heating.
This dining room is equally light and airy, with a window to the rear of the property and with plenty of space for a large dining table and chairs. There is a useful alcove cupboard, an original feature, to the left of the closed chimney breast.
The stylish modern kitchen has white Shaker base and wall units with pewter coloured fittings and solid wood worktops, all perfectly offset with green coloured wall tiles and ceramic quarry-effect floor tiles. The white ceramic kitchen sink and drainer with high chrome arched mixer tap sit beneath a sunny window to the side with a further window to the rear adding even more light.
The kitchen benefits from plenty of worktop space. There is an electric ceramic hob with an integral extractor hood above and double electric oven beneath. Under-counter space is available for a dishwasher and washing machine. There is also space for a free-standing fridge freezer. The gas central heating boiler is neatly tucked away in one of the wall units and there is a useful under-stair cupboard for all your essential household items.
The quarry-effect tiling continues into a useful lobby next to the kitchen which has space to hang coats. This leads to a cloakroom with a white wash-hand basin with chrome fittings and a splashback of white metro tiles, a low-level WC and an obscure glazed window to the rear.
Stairs with Berber-style carpeting take you up to the landing which leads to the bathroom and two double bedrooms. A hatch with ladder provides easy access to the boarded and insulated loft and a double storage cupboard provides additional storage.
This lovely large room is the full width of the property, finished with a carpet in mixed cream tones. A king-size bed and plenty of additional furniture will all fit comfortably. A cupboard is set to the right of the chimney breast and a charming cast-iron fireplace and mantelpiece complete the vintage feel of this room.
Another good-sized double room overlooks the rear garden, with cream carpets, also has a cast-iron fireplace and mantelpiece.
Overlooking the rear garden, and with a further small window to the side, the opulently large modern bathroom. This four-piece bathroom white suite comprises a large bath, WC with built-in cistern, wash-hand basin with a vanity unit and a corner shower cubicle with glass panels, chrome fittings, and blue mosaic and white tiles.
Facing New Road, the Victorian brick-built property has a matching low brick wall with wrought-iron gate opening into a neat front garden which is laid to gravel.
The secluded rear garden is south facing and is laid to lawn with herbaceous and shrub borders including roses, peonies, and holly. There is a sunny patio beneath the kitchen window and a pathway to a useful shed and storage area at the far end.
This lovely two-bedroom cottage is an ideal feel-good home for a first-time buyer and would also make an excellent investment property close to the centre of the historic market town of Oundle in Northamptonshire.
