Set in a quiet cul-de-sac position, this four-bedroom detached house is full of potential, offering two reception rooms, cloakroom, double garage, off-road parking, and a delightful, south-facing rear garden.
There are two types of Solar panels that have been fitted to take advantage of the southerly aspect, the solar panels to the roof are solar thermal panels and provide the hot water to the water tank and the solar panels to the garage roof provide the F.I.T (The feed In Tariff has an approximate saving of £600 per year). The house benefits from well-proportioned accommodation, replacement double-glazed windows, and gas central heating. Further updating would transform this Bradstone-built 1980s property into an outstanding family home. It is perfectly located on the Rockingham Hills development, a popular residential area, less than a mile from the centre of Oundle. The primary school, the doctors’ surgery, and the library are within walking distance.
The historic market town of Oundle nestles on the River Nene, surrounded by beautiful Northamptonshire countryside and picturesque villages. It offers regular markets and festivals, and a range of independent shops, restaurants and businesses, as well as schools, leisure facilities, and the Stahl Theatre. 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, providing further amenities, access to the rail network, and good links to major roads.
The entrance hall is laid with parquet effect flooring, and gives access to the cloakroom, lounge, and kitchen. Stairs rise to the first floor.
The cloakroom is fitted with a pale yellow two-piece suite, comprising a wall-hung wash-hand basin and low-level WC. The opaque window has a tiled sill.
Double doors from the hallway lead into this bright room, which features a bay window overlooking the front garden. Another set of double doors opens into the dining room.
Large windows let in plenty of light, and a door to the rear garden makes this an ideal room for entertaining friends and family, who can spill out onto the patio on warm summer evenings. There is a serving hatch to the kitchen, and an under stairs cupboard houses the consumer units.
This is a good-sized kitchen with ample space for units and kitchen appliances. A window overlooks the rear garden, and a door opens onto the driveway. A gas boiler is in place, and there is plumbing for a washing machine. A serving hatch opens into the dining room. Current fittings include a double drainer sink, a good range of wall and base units, and worktops with white tiled splashbacks. Making an archway through to the dining room would create an impressive kitchen/diner, spanning the width of the property and making the most of the view over the rear garden.
The landing has doors to the four bedrooms and the bathroom. An airing cupboard houses the water tank, and a ceiling hatch allows loft access.
This double room has a built-in dressing table and a double wardrobe. Two windows overlook the front garden.
Another good-sized double bedroom with a built-in double wardrobe. A window overlooks the rear garden.
A single bedroom with a dressing table and built-in double wardrobe. A window overlooks the front garden.
The smallest of the four bedrooms is a further single room with a window overlooking the rear garden.
The corner shower enclosure houses an electric shower, with shower panels to two walls. The walls are partially tiled behind the turquoise suite, which comprises a pedestal wash-hand basin and low-level WC. An opaque window allows natural light into the room.
Several vehicles can be parked on the private driveway, which leads to the detached double garage with up-and-over electric door. Visitors will notice an attractive front garden with flower borders and shrubs, and there is plenty of room for ornamental pots and planters to provide colour around the front door. A metal gate opens into the split-level, suntrap rear garden, where the lawn is surrounded by a profusion of flowers and shrubs, including roses, primroses, and forsythia. Climbing roses are making their way up the garage wall. All the family will enjoy al fresco dining on the patio overlooking this peaceful scene, and wooden fencing ensures privacy. The area behind the garage would be ideal for a shed. There is a window at the back of the garage, and a courtesy door at the side leads into the garden.
Solar panels were fitted seven years ago to the south-facing roof of the house and to the garage roof, so 17 years remain on the Feed-In Tariff. (approx saving £600 p.A.)
This great home is ready for a new family to take it into the 21st century. Currently arranged as two reception rooms and four bedrooms, the house has an open, airy feel, with the lounge flowing into the dining room. With scope for updating and re-modelling the interior, this property offers the discerning buyer a rare opportunity to personalise an attractive house in a quiet and convenient location.
