This exceptional two-bedroomed detached bungalow stands on a large plot with a full-width conservatory at the back overlooking a delightful garden and fields beyond. With spacious living accommodation, it has been beautifully modernised to include an impressive family bathroom, en suite to the master bedroom and a new Howdens fitted kitchen. There is further scope, subject to planning, to convert the integral garage while still leaving plenty of space at the side of the property for vehicular access.
New consumer units and light fittings were installed in 2019 and the Bosch gas boiler is only two years old.
St Peter’s Road is in a quiet residential area less than a mile from the centre of the bustling market town of Oundle, with its thriving shops, restaurants and businesses. Well known for Oundle Public School, the town is also home to Prince William Secondary School, the Stahl Theatre and The Talbot Hotel. Within walking distance of the property are Oundle Primary School, the library, and the doctors’ surgery.
Oundle lies in the lovely rural county of Northamptonshire and Barnwell Country Park is only two miles away, yet Peterborough, Kettering, Corby and Stamford are within a 15-mile radius, providing good links to the rail and road networks.
An enclosed entrance porch with windows and ceramic tiled flooring welcomes visitors to the front door.
The spacious, L-shaped entrance hall provides a lovely introduction to this home with a light and airy feel, newly-fitted carpet and wall lights, and through the kitchen doorway straight ahead you can catch sight of the garden. Doors off the hallway lead to the living room, kitchen, bedrooms and bathroom, and there are also two large storage cupboards with water tank and consumer unit.
An obscure-glazed door leads into the generous living room with large windows to both front and rear and features a stone fireplace with built-in remote control gas fire. The window to the rear aspect has views into the garden through the conservatory. A glazed door leads into the kitchen from the lounge.
With doors to the hallway, living room and conservatory, this brand-new Howdens kitchen features wood laminate worktops contrasting with cream units and integrated appliances including an eye-level Bosch oven, Bosch induction hob with AEG cooker hood, large fridge freezer and dishwasher. There are downlights and vinyl flooring and a window over the stainless sink looks into the conservatory and garden. A cupboard houses the Bosch gas boiler and there is an obscure-glazed, multi-paned door to the hallway.
A door from the kitchen leads into the smaller of the two conservatories, which is ideal as a dining area and has a radiator for cooler days. It has spot lights and laminate flooring and a door leads through into the second conservatory.
This larger room has a ceramic tiled floor, wall lights and fitted blinds to the side window. There is ample space for furniture and double doors lead out into the garden. A single door leads into the utility room.
This useful room has a single-drainer sink, plumbing for a washing machine and space and venting for a tumble dryer, as well as plenty of wall-hung cupboards. There is a window overlooking the back garden and a door into the garage.
This well appointed double room has a large window overlooking the back garden with fitted blinds. There is a high level TV/Ariel and a door to the en suite. The brand new en suite has a fully paneled corner shower cubicle, a white gloss vanity unit containing wash-hand basin with chrome tap, splash-back and fitted mirror over, low-level WC, heated towel rail, down lights and ceramic floor tiles. There is an obscure-glazed window to the rear.
Bedroom two is a good-sized double with fitted wardrobes to one wall and a large window to the front with fitted blinds.
This beautifully-designed, brand new white bathroom suite comprises low-level WC, white gloss wall hung wash-hand basin, with a fitted vanity unit, and has chrome fittings and an illuminated mirror, a P-shaped bath with a shower over the bath with shower screen, hand-held shower. Modern shower panels to the wall, ceramic tiling to the floor, chrome heated towel rail, and down-lighters make this a very stylish family bathroom.
An outstanding feature of this property is the outside space, which can be enjoyed just as it is or easily altered to suit individual taste.
The back garden is a real gem, to be enjoyed in good weather or admired from the conservatory on cooler days. Mainly laid to lawn, there is plenty of room for seating and the abundance of trees and shrubs include apple, pear and cherry trees, a hazelnut bush and a round rose bed with stone wall surround. A hedge separates the garden from the field beyond and there is a shed to the side.
The front garden is bounded by a low brick wall and a wide entrance leads to a large gravelled area, with plenty of space for vehicles, and to the integral single garage. To the left of the garage the wide driveway continues with double gates to the back garden. In front of the bungalow is an attractive lawned area with flower beds and shrubs. The side garden to the right leads to a fence and gate into the back garden. From the gateway, the gravelled area leads to the porch. At the front of the property, the integral single garage with up-and-over doors has its own consumer unit and a door at the rear into the utility room. Subject to planning, this could be converted to an additional room with access from the living room to the side, perhaps to be used as further living space, a formal dining room, a bedroom or playroom.
Such a conversion would still leave plenty of room to the side of the garage for cars and parking both in front of and beyond the double wooden gates which lead into the back garden.
This is a lovely property from which to enjoy the vibrant town of Oundle, surrounded by beautiful countryside and pretty villages. Great care has been taken to create a comfortable and very relaxing home.
