This charming two-bedroomed cottage is set in a lovely rural location in the Northamptonshire village of Thorpe Waterville yet within easy reach of the shops and amenities in the market towns of Thrapston and Oundle. The 300-year-old building was beautifully restored by the current owners ten years ago to include sealed unit double glazing and oil-fired central heating, with a new boiler installed last year. It retains a cosy rustic feel, with exposed beams and stonework and oak ledge brace doors.
The main cottage door opens directly into the lovely cottage style kitchen with beams and stonework, tiled floor, a range of built-in cupboards and drawers, black granite worktops, built-in electric oven and hob with extractor over, integrated under counter fridge, downlighters, and single-drainer sink with window overlooking the courtyard. There is room for a table and chairs, and the large walk-in larder has plumbing for a washing machine and houses the consumer unit. An attractive oak window seat overlooks the rear of the property.
A large, bright, comfortable room with solid oak flooring, full-length windows, and door to the courtyard and driveway, window to the south, exposed beams and stonework, a replica Victorian fireplace with granite surround, downlighters and wall lights. This spacious room offers enough space for a dining table. A staircase rises to the first floor.
Staircase, with exposed stonework and a glazed window, leads from the lounge to the landing, which has two large cupboards and doors to the bedrooms and bathroom. The landing and bedrooms are fully carpeted.
This very generous master bedroom is a lovely light room with a window to the south.
Another good-size double room with a large cupboard, access to the insulated loft and a window to the north.
With tiled floor, fully tiled walls, corner shower enclosure, wash-hand basin set on a vanity unit, chrome fittings, large wall mirror, and low-level WC.
A driveway with a five-bar gate and pedestrian gate leads into a wide gravelled area, with shed and disguised oil tank, which can accommodate 3 to 4 cars. There is room for outside seating and scope for the creation of a courtyard with flower beds and/or the addition of planters. An outside light and climbing cream roses around the kitchen door provide a lovely welcome to this cosy cottage.
