Aspire is pleased to present to the market this four-double bedroomed, detached family home, which has been extended and sits on a larger than average plot. The ground floor offers versatile space, which can be configured to suit any prospective purchasers’ own taste and needs.
The property consists of a generous entrance hall, which is presently an informal family space, a large reception room with a modern wood burner, an expansive kitchen dining room, a large utility/boot room, conservatory, and double garage. The first floor enjoys four double bedrooms, an en-suite and family bathroom, as well as a versatile room, built into the eaves, off the second bedroom which would be perfect as a home office or children's play den.
The fabulous rear garden has been added to by the current owner by buying a plot of land to extend the depth of the plot and has an established ‘Cock and Hen’ stone retaining wall at the end.
Nassington is a charming, character village, just over five miles north of the town of Oundle. The village has a general shop with Post Office, a high-class butcher’s shop, hotel with restaurant and bar on the river Nene, family hairdresser, vintage teashop and public house with restaurant. A fish van visits weekly and a mobile library calls monthly.

It is well known for its Public School and beautiful Barnwell Country Park, which is situated on the edge of town. Peterborough, Kettering, Corby and Stamford are within a 15-mile radius, providing good road and rail links.
Entering the property through the solid wood front door, with glass casements either side, the visitor is welcomed into the well-proportioned entrance hall.

There is a good-sized frontage approaching this home, which has a low retaining Boxus hedge and a block-paved driveway for several cars, which leads to the double garage. The well-maintained lawn area is bordered by well-established shrubs and plants.
This delightful west-facing plot has been lovingly looked after and enhanced by purchasing an extra piece of land to extend the garden, which the present owners have created into two levels. The top level is retained along the back by a ‘Cock and Hen’ stone wall, and has a vast lawned area, perfect for the budding footballer.
There are three patio areas ideal for outside dining, and a shady spot has been created under an arbour, with an established climbing Wisteria. An abundance of mature trees and shrubs have been planted, including a well-established white Lilac tree.
In addition, the garden offers a purpose-built wood store, a small vegetable patch and a gate at the side of the house to the front of the property.
The neutral decoration and flooring throughout this well-maintained home gives a tranquil and welcoming atmosphere, and having been well looked after, an internal viewing is recommended to appreciate all that this home has to offer.
