This lovely restored Victorian end-of-terrace house is in move-in condition and offers two reception rooms, two double bedrooms, and a south-facing rear garden. The property has been updated, to include gas central heating, double-glazed windows, and a modern cottage style kitchen and bathroom, but has retained the striking original internal doors, fireplace, wood floors, picture and dado rails. Conveniently located just a short walk from Oundle town centre, this comfortable home is decorated in smart neutral colours throughout, and benefits from a driveway to the side of the property. The historic market town of Oundle nestles on the River Nene, surrounded by beautiful Northamptonshire countryside and picturesque villages. The town offers regular markets and festivals, and a range of independent shops, restaurants and businesses, as well as schools, a theatre, and a library. The tranquil lakeside walks of Barnwell Country Park are just on the edge of town. Peterborough, Corby, Stamford and Kettering are all within 15 miles of this property, offering further amenities and providing access to the rail network and good links to major roads.
Set in an open porch, with a welcome light and quarry-tiled floor, the front door leads into the entrance hall. The hall has a wood floor, dado and picture rails, and houses the consumer unit. Doors open into the two reception rooms, and the stairs rise to the first floor.
This lovely comfortable room features a cast iron working fireplace with tiled hearth, a picture rail, wood floor, and a wooden door. The original wooden bay window overlooks the front garden.
The second reception room is large enough for a sofa as well as a table and chairs, and has a wood floor and wooden door. It features a multi-fuel burner set in a fireplace with stone hearth, and a built-in cupboard with shelves above. A window overlooks the rear garden, and a door leads into the kitchen.
With a window to the side aspect and French doors opening into the rear garden, the hand made solid wood kitchen which was crafted by Willowbrook kitchens in Barnwell offers a bright workspace. Ceiling spotlights and wall lights provide plenty of light. There is room for a table and chairs plus a fridge freezer. Additionally, there are two under-counter spaces for appliances, and plumbing for a washing machine and dishwasher. Below the fitted extractor hood is a space for a cooker, and the kitchen also has a Butler sink. A good range of light grey wall and base units includes display shelves with downlighters above, and a full-height larder. The cream tiled splashbacks complement the solid wood worktops and the tiled floor. A large under-stairs cupboard, with lighting, power, and a radiator, houses the recently installed Ideal gas boiler.
The stairs, landing and bedrooms are laid with light wool Berber carpeting. The landing has a dado rail. A ceiling hatch, with drop-down ladder, provides access to the boarded loft, which has lighting and power.

Featuring a neat box hedge set in a flower bed, the front garden is bounded by low walls, smart iron fencing, and a gate, with a path to the front door. There is a paved area to the side of the property and a gate leads into a side area with log store and the gas meter. A second wooden gate opens into the rear garden. This attractive garden is south facing, with raised beds on gravel, shrubs, and mature trees, including three silver birches. Decking provides a patio area, and the garden is enclosed by fencing and a wall. The pretty, blue summerhouse is a real feature: it has lighting and power and is a great place for working or relaxing. There is also a shed, outside tap, power socket, and exterior lighting. An enclosed area to the other side of the house catches the sun and is perfect for planters.
