Built just 5 years ago, this fabulous, detached house, with a double garage, has four double bedrooms, a large study, open plan kitchen dining family room, a separate living room, utility room and en-suite shower room. The current owners, from new, upgraded internal fixtures and fittings so the property has high-end elements such as flooring, doors, work-surfaces, light switches and sockets.
First impressions on entering 25 Cricketers Way are of an impressively spacious and light home, which continues throughout the accommodation. The kitchen/dining/family room is an area where all the family can gather, making it the hub of the home.
The front door is in the middle of the house with doors either side of the lovely, large and bright hallway. The open balustrade stair rises to the first floor. An under-stair cupboard provides a good amount of storage space. On one side of the hall is a door to the living room, and on the other, to the good-sized study. Both rooms are situated at the front of the house. The open-plan kitchen, dining and family room lie along the back of the property. Nordic Oak Amtico flooring flows throughout the ground floor.
A generously sized reception room is found to the right off the hallway and entered by a partially glazed internal door. Views over Oundle School’s sports field are at the front aspect.
Another room with views over the front of the property has ample space to be utilised as a study, play or hobby room.
This wonderful area, through two partially glazed doors from the hall, would be where the whole family congregates. Running the length of the back of the house, with French doors opening onto the rear garden patio from the dining area, it is easy to imagine summer get-togethers, spilling outside. White gloss wall and base units have pale-coloured granite worktops and upstands that incorporate a 1.5 bowl stainless-steel sink unit, situated under one of the windows. Also integrated are a 5-ring gas hob with stainless-steel extractor hood, an AEG eye-level, double electric oven, fridge/freezer and a dishwasher. Additionally, there is under-cupboard lighting and ceiling downlighters.
There is plenty of room for a family-sized dining table and chairs, as well as space for a settee in the family area.
Accessed from the kitchen, the utility room has units and worktops matching those in the kitchen. There is plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble dryer. A partially glazed external door leads to the side of the property where there is a driveway and garages.
The white suite consists of a low-level W.C., and a corner pedestal wash hand basin, with tiled splashbacks.
Rising from the entrance hall, the carpeted stairs lead to a spacious landing where there is a cupboard housing the hot water tank, and a ceiling hatch accessing the insulated loft.
The main bedroom is of good proportions with a window overlooking the front elevation and two double built-in wardrobes. A door leads to the:
Amtico flooring and neutrally-coloured tiles are a clean background to the wall-hung wash hand basin, low-level W.C., and fully-tiled, double shower cubicle with drencher and separate shower attachment. Additionally, there is an obscure glazed window to the front, a heated towel rail and ceiling downlighters.
Again, with a window to the front aspect, this double room has built-in wardrobes.
Another double bedroom is situated at the rear of the property with a window overlooking the back garden.
The final double bedroom has built-in wardrobes and a window to the rear of the property.
Amtico flooring adorns this bathroom which has a fully tiled shower cubicle, bath, low-level W.C., and a wall--hung wash hand basin with tiled surrounds. An obscure glazed window is to the rear elevation and there is a chrome heated towel rail and ceiling spotlights.
25 Cricketers Way is a substantial family home with a feeling of space, both inside and out. This is enhanced by the brick-built, double garage with pitched roof at the side of the house. In front of the garage is a block-paved driveway with room for four vehicles. A gate next to the driveway accesses the rear garden.
The front of the house has a central path, through the lawned area, which leads to the front door, and the grass is bordered by low hedging.
At the rear of the house the garden has a mixture of single and double height sleeper beds, with some mature shrubs and plants. The remainder of the garden has been laid to lawn, with a patio area ideal for catching the sun from midday onwards. A path continues from the patio to the side pedestrian gate onto the driveway. Fenced enclosed, the garden also benefits from remote control strategic lighting, two external electric sockets and an outside tap.
This house offers everything a growing family requires and has the added benefit of off-road parking for 4 vehicles in front of the double garage. Viewing of this pristine home is highly advised.
Oundle is a thriving, four-hundred-year-old market town in the pretty rural county of Northamptonshire. Well known for its Public School facilities, which include a theatre and an Olympic-size swimming pool, the town has independent shops, restaurants, pubs, numerous coffee shops, and a marina. Barnwell Country Park, with its three lakes, lies on the edge of the town. Peterborough, Kettering, Corby and Stamford are within a 15-mile radius, providing good links to the rail and road networks.
What we love about our home.......
The current owners were first attracted to their home because of the amount of space provided internally and the fact that the whole property is light and airy. They particularly like the layout of the back of the house with the open plan kitchen diner family room. Another of their favourite rooms is the large principal bedroom with all the storage provided by the built-in wardrobes. They are really glad they upgraded on the quality of the fixtures and fittings and pleased they chose the granite worktops.
In addition, they love the position of their home with the open aspect to the front and the fact that they can easily walk into the centre of vibrant Oundle with all the amenities it provides. The easy access to transport and rail links is also an added benefit for this family.
