This converted nineteenth century, Grade II listed chapel, provides generous and flexible living accommodation with two bedrooms and a mezzanine-level study room, all emanating style.
The property is entered from West Street through impressive double wooden doors recently restored to their original beauty.
Providing bright and airy accommodation over three floors, the chapel windows are a stunning feature on the first floor. Light, natural colours are a good neutral base for all tastes and the first and second floor rooms are finished with a light Berber-style carpet.
It is ideally located for anyone who wants to be right at the heart of Oundle life yet is close to Peterborough, Kettering and Corby.
This amazing property is entered through grand, solid wood double doors, with an attractive arched window above, into a bright welcoming entrance hall. Ceramic grey floor tiles, with inset doormat, adorn the hall and flow through to the bathroom. A generous under-stairs cupboard provides plenty of shelving, power and plumbing for a washing machine. Open balustrade stairs rise to the first floor. Having been newly decorated and with detailed architrave and skirtings throughout, the hall sets the scene for the rest of the property.
To the left of the hall is a generous-sized double bedroom, brightly illuminated by double aspect windows. The window to the side is obscure glazed. There are floor-to-ceiling wardrobes and overhead cupboards along one wall, with plenty of space for additional furniture.
On the right of the hallway is a single room with fitted storage cupboards and windows overlooking West Street and Victoria Yard. This could easily be used as a study or home office.
The bathroom features a fresh white modern suite with traditional fixtures and an extractor fan. There is a rainfall shower above a P-shaped bath with a shower screen, a chrome heated towel rail, a useful bathroom cabinet and adjustable mirror above the wash basin. The hall floor tiling continues into the bathroom, and the walls are finished with attractive dove grey metro tiles. An obscure glazed window is set to the side of the room.
Carpeted stairs rise to the first floor.
A panelled door with etched glass to the top leads from the stairs into the well-proportioned open plan living space with light oak flooring throughout, it is beautifully bright with natural light from the two impressive chapel windows, which overlook West Street and a skylight in the living area.
This breathtaking room feels like a penthouse loft apartment. It is extremely bright and airy with feature glass shelves built into an alcove. Plenty of space is provided for large sofas and associated lounge furniture. There are multiple power points and television aerial sockets.
The kitchen is well laid out with modern base units, incorporating a wine rack, and wall units all in a light oak finish with charcoal grey Quartz worktops with upstands. It includes a built-in electric oven, Neff induction hob, grey splashback and overhead stainless steel and glass extractor hood. A recessed white ceramic sink with arched chrome kitchen mixer tap is placed under the side window overlooking Victoria Yard. There is space for a family-sized fridge freezer and plumbing for a dishwasher. Ceiling spotlights complete this room.
Adjacent to the kitchen, and next to the spiral staircase to the second floor, is the perfect spot for a dining table and chairs.
Accessed directly from the spiral staircase, the mezzanine level has an overhead wooden beam with spotlights. It is currently used as a guest room and is flooded with light from a large Velux window which offers views across the Oundle skyline. A particularly attractive feature is an original quatrefoil window above the staircase with a stone lintel and hardwood sill. The room is finished with attractive umber-coloured carpet. Loads of storage is provided in the eaves found behind sliding doors. A trap door in the floor accesses the first floor.
To the front there is a raised terrace with decorative iron railings and gate overlooking the beautiful architectural features the properties opposite offer. The paved terrace provides enough room for seating and/or a cafe table and chairs as well as planted pots. Catching the evening sun, this space makes an ideal setting for reading and drinking in the atmosphere of Oundle's centre.
The property is perfectly located to enjoy all the amenities of the attractive country town of Oundle on the River Nene in Northamptonshire. You are close to the Stahl Theatre, part of the prestigious Oundle School, which presents an outstanding programme of student and professional performances each year. In just five minutes you can walk into the town centre, where you will find a wide range of attractive venues to enjoy a relaxing coffee or delicious meal, along with a wide range of independent shops and all your day-today shopping necessities.
