Situated in a quiet cul-de-sac, yet in easy walking distance from Oundle marketplace, 8 Mildmay Close is a detached two bedroomed bungalow set upon lovely grounds and offering a good amount of parking.
The property would benefit from updating as many of the original elements are still in place from when the property was built in the mid 1970’s but that doesn’t detract from its overall appeal as its location, spacious exterior, beautifully kept gardens and light internal accommodation are a rarity. The property has had some replacement windows and doors, which are still under warranty.
An early viewing is advised as it is anticipated that there will be a lot of interest in this home.
Entered via a newly fitted uPVC double glazed door into the hallway where doors lead to the reception room and kitchen.
From the hallway and found at the front of the house, the good size kitchen has a large window overlooking the cul-de-sac and a glass hatch into the living room. The original units and worktops, although of its time, still show how much storage and worktop space this bright space offers.
To the other side of the entrance hall is a cloakroom with a coloured suite comprising a W.C. and pedestal wash hand basin. An obscure window is to the side elevation.
An obscure glazed door gives access to the side of the garden and round to the rear garden. This room houses the ‘Ideal’ free-standing boiler and wall shelving.
A lovely bright room with a window to the side and a further patio door and window (with remote control curtains) overlooks and accesses the pretty rear garden. Further light is gained from the kitchen via the glazed hatch. An electric fire is in place with a slabbed hearth. A sliding door gains entry to the inner lobby where the shower room and bedrooms are situated.
A loft hatch accesses the roof void. Doors to both bedrooms and shower room.
This good sized double bedroom has plenty of room for a large bed and associated furniture. A large window overlooks the well-kept garden.
Another good size double bedroom has a window to the side aspect.
The shower room offers a shower, pedestal wash hand basin and W.C. An obscure window is to the side elevation. A large airing cupboard offers plenty of storage.
A fantastic amount of parking is offered with 8 Mildmay Close by way of a single garage as well as an adjoining car port and parking in front of both.
It is obvious on approach that these grounds have been lovingly tended over the years and continue to be so. The frontage has a feeling of space with a gravelled area that has established planting and steps up to the front door. A path and gate lead from the garaging to the side and back of the bungalow.
To the rear, the south-facing gardens are extremely private as the majority of the bordering property is Oundle School land that has unobtrusive fencing giving a feel that the gardens extend further. This garden has clearly been the subject of many hours of pleasure having been well maintained and thoughtfully landscaped and planted, offering patio seating areas, lawned areas and beautiful shrubs, trees and flower beds.
The centre of the popular market town of Oundle is a short walk away offering regular markets, a range of independent shops, cafes and restaurants. The lakes, riverbank and meadows of Barnwell Country Park are on the edge of the town, a short bike ride away.
Corby, Stamford, Kettering and Peterborough are all within 15 miles, providing access to the rail network and with good links to major roads.
