Situated opposite the village primary school, this three-bedroom end-of-terrace cottage offers two reception rooms, a cottage style kitchen and four piece bathroom suite, off-road parking, and a delightful rear garden. Original skirting boards, ceiling beams, and ledge and brace doors add old-world charm. The cottage has been extended, and benefits from replacement double-glazed windows and Calor gas central heating. With scope for further updating and improvement, Moat Cottage will appeal to a new owner wishing to stamp their own mark on the property.
Warmington is a sought-after village, with a Post Office and general store, butchers, the Red Lion public house with dining, and a village hall. Residents enjoy the benefits of relaxed village life while being only three miles from Oundle, a bustling market town with 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, a former 16th century coaching inn. Further amenities, and good road and rail links, are accessible 11 miles away at Peterborough.
The front door opens into the lounge, which is laid with laminate flooring. This good-sized room features a brick fireplace with lintel beam and quarry tiled hearth. A wood burner makes sure this is a cosy spot for winter days, and ceiling beams and wall lights add atmosphere. There are windows to both front and rear aspects, and a door to the dining room.
Laminate flooring continues into the second reception room, where French doors open onto the patio. A deep under stairs cupboard provides storage, and stairs rise to the first floor. This a great room for entertaining family and friends on warm summer evenings overlooking the garden. A door leads into the kitchen.
This bright, modern kitchen offers plenty of space for the inspired cook. An abundance of natural light floods in through the window overlooking the garden and the side window, whilst downlighters provide further illumination. A good range of cream wall and base units complement the wood-effect worktops and multi-coloured tiled splashbacks. Fitted appliances include a Calor gas hob, with extractor, a Colonial Creda grill and oven, dishwasher, washing machine, and a fridge freezer. The vinyl flooring in the kitchen continues into the lobby.
In the lobby, the stable door is used by the current owners as the main door to the cottage, as it opens onto the driveway, where there is an outside light. The generous lobby, which houses the wall-hung Glow-worm boiler, can be used for storing boots and shoes. A window looks out to the front of the property.
The dog-leg staircase rises to the first-floor landing, where there is an opaque window. Cream painted wooden doors lead to the three bedrooms and bathroom.
This double bedroom has a dormer window to the side of the property, and a storage cupboard in the eaves.
Bedroom two is a dual-aspect double room, with a dormer window overlooking the front of the cottage, and another window to the rear. Sloping ceilings add character.
The third bedroom is a single room, with ceiling spotlights, and a dormer window to the front aspect. There is a built-in wardrobe, and an airing cupboard where the hot water tank is housed.
The bathroom is equipped with a four-piece cream suite with antique-style fittings, comprising a bath with wood-effect side panelling, a pedestal wash-hand basin, and a low-level WC. The shower is in a corner enclosure. The walls and floor are fully tiled, and the room is well lit with downlighters. A large opaque window to the rear aspect makes this a lovely light space.
The garden is a delightful feature of this cottage, and the driveway provides off-road parking for several vehicles. A five-bar gate at the side of the property opens onto the gravelled driveway, which sweeps round to the patio and the rear garden. A viburnum bush drapes its pretty white flowers towards the patio, where diners look out over a lawned garden filled with established trees, shrubs and flowers. A Tortuosa Willow spreads out its contorted branches, and forsythia, lily of the valley, and daffodils add splashes of colour. Fencing and conifer hedging ensure privacy. Near the shed at the back of the garden is an area which could be ideal as a vegetable patch. The Calor gas tank is in the rear garden, and there is a useful area at the other side of the cottage for concealing garden necessities.
NOTE: The neighbouring attached property has the right of way to access their property via the rear garden of Moat Cottage.
Warmington is a vibrant Northamptonshire village surrounded by countryside and close to the border with Cambridgeshire at Elton. The villagers are proud of their 13th century church and the many listed buildings, including a watermill and a dovecote. The Nene Way footpath runs through Warmington to the village of Fotheringhay, where Richard III was born and Mary, Queen of Scots, was executed. The A605 used to wind its way through Warmington village, with lorries thundering past the pub on “the Warmington bends”, until the bypass was built in 2002. During the road works, an archaeological dig unearthed a 1500-year-old skeleton at Eaglethorpe, which is thought to be the oldest part of the village.
