Wades Close is a small cul-de-sac in the charming village of Woodnewton. This four-bedroom detached home is designed to suit modern family living whilst having the advantage of a beautiful rural setting.
Picturesque Woodnewton is an idyllic village based in Northamptonshire. The village prides itself on its small welcoming community which may have been the reason why ‘coco the clown’ Nicolai Poliakoff chose Woodnewton his home to retire in and his grave can still be found in the village graveyard of St Mary's parish church. The village itself has a church, public house which is to be voted Best Best Gourmet Dining Restaurant & Village Pub - Northamptonshire 2020, village hall, and a pottery shop and access to many good walking routes. In addition, there is an excellent park and extensive playing field across the road for children of all ages, also connected to the village allotments.
This lovely village is well situated, being within 15miles proximity of Peterborough, Kettering and Corby providing great road and rail links across the country. The beautiful historic market town of Stamford is within 10miles and the popular Rutland Water within a 30 minute drive. There are also excellent primary and secondary schools located close by in Kings Cliffe, Nassington and Oundle.’
A sheltered porch with a partially glazed door leads into the home. A central entrance hall provides space to the downstairs living areas and carpeted stairs lead to the first floor. The hallway is laid with a neutral tiled floor which continues into the dining and kitchen areas.
The downstairs WC has been newly appointed with a modern hand basin and white WC.
This large living area, with dual aspect views, spans across one side of the property, with a large window to the front overlooking the quiet cul-de-sac location and French doors to the rear opening out into the garden. This warm and inviting room is tastefully decorated in contemporary tones with a plush neutral carpet and a working cast iron fireplace.
The dining room is located from the entrance hall, the L shape design allows space for a generous sized dining table whilst giving a clear passage through to the kitchen and has the addition of a cubby space suitable for a side unit or storage. Natural light is provided from the window overlooking the front lawn and an open doorway leads into the kitchen.
The kitchen is to the rear of the property, the tiled floor extends through the kitchen from the entrance hall and dining room and continues into the adjoining utility via open doorways, creating a flowing feel to the practical space. The window to the rear provides a view of the garden. The wooden units are styled with broad brushed chrome handles, a gloss granite effect work surface and finished with a large polished stainless steel double sink and drainer with mixer tap. There is a freestanding cooker with double oven and overhead extractor hood, and space for a dishwasher and a fridge freezer unit. Additionally, the kitchen would also allow of a small breakfast table or butchers block island.
Via the open doorway from the kitchen there is a utility room with an outside door to the rear garden and window. A matching worksurface and cupboards to the kitchen provide further storage space as well as plumbing for a washing machine and separate tumble dryer. There is an under-stair cupboard that could be used as a pantry from the kitchen or for further storage.
Neutral carpeted stairs lead from the entrance hall to the open landing on the first floor with two large laundry cupboards and doors to the bedrooms and family bathroom.
From the landing you enter into the main bedroom, the airy double room has a neutral décor and is carpeted in the same carpet as the landing and stairs. With a window to the front, there is plenty of space for a large double bed and ample wardrobe space.
A good size double room with fresh pale walls complimenting the neutral carpet. A built-in cupboard is fitted with a clothes rail, and this room has a window overlooking the front of the house.
Situated to the rear of the property is another pleasant bedroom. A light, bright room with a window to the rear garden and overlooking an orchard. This is a good-sized single bedroom, with space for a wardrobe and further bedroom furniture.
A cheerful fourth bedroom or potential home office or study. Similar to bedroom three, this is a bright room with a window to the rear of the property. Carpeted and decorated in a neutral tone, this single room is currently set as a nursey as positioned adjacent to the main bedroom.
The crisp, grey tiles create a modern feel to the newly fitted white suite consisting of a WC, a superb twin sink basin with vanity drawers, and a P shaped bath with mixer shower over. A wall mounted chrome heated towel rail finishes the sleek practical room with an obscured window to the front to take advantage of the natural light.
A gravelled driveway with space for two to three vehicles leads to a double garage attached to the side of the property with a path across to the home’s front door. Fitted with an electric double door, the garage is fitted with lights, and electrics and houses the boiler and has boarded storage in the eaves.
To the rear, the garden wraps around from the timber gates in L shape to the back of the garage. Separated into useful areas, the garden space has a gravelled side access leading to a stone laid outdoor sitting and eating space. The remainder of the garden is laid to lawn for low maintenance with space for garden play equipment. Positioned in the corner is the garden shed on a fixed base. The rear boundary is a mature hedge, bordering onto a protected orchard which provides beautiful ever changing seasonal views and creates an open, rural feeling to this secluded garden.
Already a good-sized property, this detached home was granted planning permission in 2019 for a single storey extension which would create additional ground floor accommodation
With the possibility to extend and being set in a quiet, peaceful location, this versatile home offers much more than meets the eye and a viewing of the property and the local area is highly recommended.

What the vendors love about their home........
"This beautiful village and its welcoming community makes Woodnewton a really special place to live. We could not ask for more genuinely caring neighbours who look out for one another and have extensive historic knowledge of the area, some who continue to occupy the property they bought as a new build 50-odd years ago! They often call round with their excess allotment produce or baked goods and treats for the kids, we are blessed with such a lovely cul-de-sac.
The park, with its immediate proximity, has given us absolute joy and the children frequent it daily. Along with this, we enjoy numerous walks and runs around the footpaths and agricultural fields, which are all very child and dog friendly.
On the country lanes, you are only a short cycle (ones which our 4 year old is able to do) to many beautiful village pubs and restaurants, or even a one minute walk from our award winning village pub (there is a 'snicket' path alongside the cul-de-sac edge).
Avoiding the busy 'main roads', we often go to Rutland Water, Burghley and Fineshade, all via country villages and lanes. Woodnewton truly is a great location both for its quiet and natural beauty, but also for the convenience of towns and landmarks at just a short drive away."
