A deceptively spacious three bedroomed semi-detached house, situated in a corner position and within walking distance of Oundle marketplace. The property has been extended at the rear of the kitchen to add a further reception and a shower room. Of particular benefit is the large gravelled frontage, giving off-road parking for a minimum of 3 vehicles, and the fabulously sized, south-facing rear garden which is not overlooked.
This family home is stylishly presented throughout, with replacement windows and doors over recent years. There is still further scope to extend, subject to relevant planning permission.
An internal inspection is highly recommended as properties on this size of plot, near the centre of Oundle, rarely come onto the market.
Entering through a partially glazed door, the light hallway has tiled flooring that continues through to the kitchen. Two windows to the side allow natural light to flood in, and open balustrades add to the feeling of spaciousness. There are two under-stairs cupboards, as well as hanging space for coats.
Positioned at the front of the building, with three windows, the main reception room has laminate flooring, and stylish wood panelling to one wall that incorporates display shelving.
The kitchen is really well designed with a great range of contemporary eye and base level units, with wood worktops and drawers. A separate island has a granite-effect worksurface, drawers under and seating for two. One of the cupboards has a built-in worktop, shelves and wine rack. Integrated appliances include a fridge/freezer, a four-ring gas hob with a wok ring and oven under, as well as an eye-level electric oven, grill and microwave. Plumbing for a dishwasher is provided under the large stainless-steel sink beneath the window to the side. Three further windows overlook the patio area in the back garden
Laminate flooring and ceiling spotlights give clean lines to the extension, which is open plan from the kitchen, and is currently being utilised as a dining room. An added extra is a built-in dresser to one wall. This is a really bright room with a window to the rear and a partially glazed door to the side, allowing access to the patio area. A cupboard houses the washing machine and also provides storage.
This modern addition has laminate flooring, an obscure window to the side aspect and space for hanging garments. The suite comprises a fully tiled shower cubicle, hand basin and a low-level WC.
Carpeted stairs rise to the first floor and a large loft hatch on the landing accesses the roof space. (The loft is fully insulated and significantly boarded.)
The largest bedroom is at the front of the house, and two recesses provide space for wardrobes.
Overlooking the rear garden, this light and spacious double bedroom is provided with fitted wardrobes.
At the front of the house is a single bedroom with laminate flooring and a built-in, over-stairs cupboard.
The bathroom has fully tiled walls and flooring in natural tones, giving a contemporary base to the white suite which consists of a bath with shower attachment, drencher and glass screen, large wash basin and low-level WC. In addition, there is a heated, chrome towel rail, inset spotlights and an obscure window to the rear.
A large gravelled frontage has room for at least 3 vehicles (there is shared right of access with Number 53) and is bordered by hedges on both sides. Some planting surrounds a small patio area. Wrought iron gates access the side of the house where there is a walled, paved area and a gate to the back garden.
The south-facing rear garden, which is not overlooked at all, is of large proportions and currently offers different zones for entertaining by way of patios and decking. An arbour, with a pathway underneath, leads to a hidden shed and greenhouse. A large grassed area with some established planting covers approximately half the space.
This property is situated in a quiet residential area, backing onto a play park, yet within walking distance of Oundle town centre and shops. Gordon Road is less than a mile from the centre of the bustling market town of Oundle, with its 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. Within easy walking distance of the property are Oundle Primary School, the library, the doctors’ surgery, and Barnwell Country Park, which lies on the edge of the town.
Oundle is in the lovely rural county of Northamptonshire, yet Peterborough, Kettering, Corby and Stamford are within a 15-mile radius, providing good links to the rail and road networks.
