Thorpeleigh House is a charming, detached property set in a beautiful wrap-around garden on a large corner plot. This three-bedroomed, chalet-style house has been updated to provide spacious living accommodation, including a lounge, dining room and study as well as a delightful conservatory. On the ground floor, most of the rooms are connected and have continuous oak wood flooring. Patio doors in both the dining room and the lounge allow light to flood in, and the conservatory is a particularly light and airy space. Additional features include oil-fired central heating, and the gated gravelled drive, which leads to a single garage and provides off-road parking for several vehicles.
Thorpeleigh House is in a rural location in the pretty Northamptonshire village of Thorpe Waterville, yet within easy reach of the shops and amenities in the market towns of Thrapston and Oundle.
The bright hallway, with solid oak flooring, provides a lovely welcome to the house, with a view of the garden through the conservatory.
From this comfortable, carpeted room, the south-facing garden can be fully appreciated. Windows to two sides provide a good view of the lawn, pond and rockery as well as the flowering cherry and copper beech trees, and the summer house. There is a door to the garden.
The solid oak flooring continues into the inner hallway, where stairs rise to the first floor and doors lead to the cloakroom, lounge and study.
This shower room comprises a corner shower, a wash-hand basin set in a vanity unit with tiled splashback, and a low-level WC. The flooring is laid with attractive ceramic tiles, and glazed windows to the side and front elevations provide plenty of light.
From the inner hall, a doorway leads into the study, with the oak floor being a feature of this room too. This is a great room to work in, with a window overlooking the front garden towards the village. There is a useful under-stairs cupboard, and a door leads into the utility room.
The utility room has lots of useful cupboards and worktops, space for a fridge/freezer and tumble dryer, and plumbing for a washing machine. The walls are partially tiled, and the Worcester Bosch Danesmoor oil boiler is housed here. A door gives access to the paved area and driveway at the side of the house.
This is a well-fitted, modern kitchen with a good range of solid oak units, matching worktops, a breakfast bar and tiled splashbacks. Integrated appliances include a Neff oven with tilt-and-slide door, with a microwave above, and an Electrolux dishwasher. The induction hob has an extractor hood. With a window overlooking the side garden, this is a great work space, which flows into the dining room.
Sliding patio doors allow light to flood into the dining room from the rear garden, and make this a good place for entertaining. The solid oak wood flooring continues into this room, and fitted cupboards provide plenty of storage space. The dining room has folding doors that can be completely opened up into the lounge and joining the two rooms.
The carpeted lounge also has patio doors, providing access to the rear garden, and a window into the conservatory. The wall-hung Calor gas fire makes this a cosy room for relaxing. A door leads into the inner hallway.
Carpeted stairs lead up to the landing, where there is access to the boarded loft, and an airing cupboard housing the hot water tank.
This double master bedroom benefits from fitted Sharp wardrobe and drawers with a dressing table. It is carpeted, and a picture window overlooks the front garden.
Bedroom two is also a carpeted double room. It has a window overlooking the rear garden, and fitted Sharp furniture, consisting of a wardrobe and drawers with a dressing table. An eaves cupboard provides additional storage.
The third bedroom is a carpeted, single room with a south facing window.
With a ceramic tiled floor, the bathroom has a suite comprising bath, separate shower enclosure with Triton shower, wash-hand basin, set in a vanity unit, and low-level WC. There is a glazed window to the rear elevation.
The mature, private garden is an exceptional feature of this house, and includes a summer house, shed and greenhouse. The property is approached through a wooden gate set in a stone wall, which is covered in pretty, trailing plants and flowers. The south-facing conservatory has a beautiful view of the wildlife pond and rockery, with the summer house and tall hedging behind. Flowers, shrubs and trees abound, including flowering cherry, copper beech and silver birch trees. The summer house, which has light and power, has double doors and is currently used as an office. To the front of the house, paving leads to vegetable plots. To the rear is a gate into a lawned area with shrubs and a greenhouse. The gravelled driveway is accessed via double gates to the side of the house, and can accommodate up to four vehicles. It leads to the single garage, which has an up-and-over door and power and lighting. A tall line of trees separates the driveway from a large patio beside the house, which can be accessed from the utility room and provides a lovely place to sit. Careful use of Indian York Stone makes the paved areas of the garden particularly attractive. Tucked away at the edge of the patio is a large shed and the oil tank.
Located mid-way between Thrapston and Oundle, this delightful property has easy access to shops, restaurants and schools as well as to the A45, A14, A1M, and to rail links to London from Corby (12 miles) and Peterborough (19 miles). Thorpe Waterville is a charming, friendly village, and Thorpeleigh House is only two minutes walk from The Fox, a popular inn with restaurant.
