Wadenhoe is set in beautiful, rural East Northamptonshire, with picturesque country lanes lined with thatched cottages. This historic village is over 800 years old and was even mentioned in the Doomsday Book. Full of charm, there is a village pub and tea-room set beside the River Nene and the Market towns of Thrapston and Oundle are both within a 10-mile drive with further amenities.
Dairy Cottage sits in a quiet close, built around a grade II listed dovecote in the centre of the village, with the river and the church fields nearby. The pretty limestone cottage, with slate roof, was originally the farmhouse stables, and it retains the character of the building dating back to 1886.
This two-bedroomed stone cottage is set across one level with a walled garden to the front. The property has been restored to a beautiful finish, with neutral tones and attractive timber frame windows, set into the deep original walls of the stable building.
An attractive solid timber door opens into a lobby with a stone tiled floor, and an internal wooden panelled door leads into the kitchen.
The lovely stone floor continues from the lobby into the kitchen and sets the tone for the rustic, yet modern room. The kitchen is fitted with cream country-style base and eye level units, with a butcher’s block-effect work surface. The room also comprises a stainless-steel double sink, with mixer tap, an oven with ceramic hob and extractor and an integrated dishwasher and washer-dryer. Space is available for a fridge-freezer. There are windows to the front and rear of the building, and the room is decorated in a crisp neutral palate. This large kitchen, which is the heart of the home, has room for a table and chairs, with doors leading to the living room on one side, and the bedrooms on the other.
A stunning, spacious room, with a high vaulted ceiling and exposed beams. With windows either side of this room as well as French doors leading to the garden, natural light floods this space. The living area is decorated with pale walls and a neutral carpet.
Leading from the kitchen is the hallway. The same neutral carpet and pale walls of the living area continue in the hall and into the bedrooms.
The first room from the hallway is the shower room, fitted with a white WC suite, hand basin, and a generous walk-in corner shower with drench shower head. The bathroom is a good size and is fitted with stone floor tiles, a walk-in airing cupboard and a window to the front aspect. A characterful heated towel rail finishes the room.
This second bedroom has room for a double bed and other furniture, and has the added benefit of a fitted built-in wardrobe. There is a window to the front of the property.
Located at the end of the hallway the stylish main bedroom has a high vaulted ceiling and exposed timbers. This good-sized double room is bright and airy with double aspect windows to the front and rear.
Dairy Cottage has a south-facing, walled garden, which is fenced to the Dove Court entrance and parking area. The garden is a blank canvas, mainly laid to lawn, with a path leading to the main entrance and living room French doors. The sunny lawn is partially walled by a Listed 1858 kitchen garden wall, which is part of the original farm estate, and is finished with another beautiful stone wall. The garden also houses the oil tank, used for the property’s heating. There is car parking space for two vehicles.
Dairy Cottage and Dovecote Yard are part of the Wadenhoe conservation area, and have been restored to a high standard, in keeping with the history and appearance of the village.
Viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate the beauty of the building, and the ideal blend of the old and contemporary styles achieved.
