Tucked away at the end of a row of four cottages, 27 Stamford Lane is a quaint, red brick, end of terrace cottage, built approximately 130 years ago, and set on a generous-sized plot with extra garden to the side. This cosy home offers rural living with modern comforts, including a new wood-burning stove, new 'Electra Rad' efficient electric heaters, a modern kitchen with integrated appliances, and a white bathroom suite with an electric shower and contemporary floor and wall tiles.
The accommodation comprises: an open plan living and dining room; a great sized kitchen, with amazing views over the well-stocked gardens and beyond; a bathroom, and two bedrooms. Character features include a stunning wood and stained-glass entrance door, internal wooden doors with latch locks, picture rails to some rooms, and a feature chimney breast with exposed brick.
Offered with no forward chain and with room to extend (subject to relevant planning permission), this lovely property has so much to offer.
To the front of the house, a rambling rose climbs the canopied porch that leads to the gorgeous wood and stained-glass front door, which opens into the reception room.
Engineered oak flooring flows through the living room into the dining area. The chimney breast, which is part painted and part exposed brick, has a newly fitted Charnwood wood-burning stove, which keeps this room lovely and cosy in the colder months. A window at either end of the room allows a good amount of natural light to pour in. The dining end, with room for a table and chairs, has a storage recess beneath the stairs, which rise to the first floor. A door leads to the inner lobby which accesses the bathroom and kitchen.
The bathroom has a contemporary feel with a patterned tiled floor, and white heated towel rail. The white suite consists of a panelled bath with a Triton electric shower over and glass screen, a pedestal wash hand basin set below the window, overlooking the rear garden, and a low-level W.C. Metro tiles surround the bath and basin.
A beautifully light, well-appointed kitchen has views to the side and rear, and French doors lead onto a block-paved patio area. A good amount of cream wall and base cupboards, with solid wood worktops, provide substantial storage and preparation areas. Integrated appliances include a fridge/freezer, dishwasher, oven, hob and extractor hood. The butler sink is placed under one of the windows and plumbing for a washing machine is provided. Muted green metro tile splashbacks complement the colour scheme, alongside the neutral-coloured laminate flooring.
The exposed wooden staircase rises from the dining area and a window halfway up ensures the stairwell is naturally light. Both bedrooms have stripped wooden flooring.
The main bedroom is at the front of the cottage. It has a picture rail, loft hatch and built-in floor to ceiling wardrobes.
With far reaching views over the allotments and countryside at the back of the house, the second bedroom has an over-stairs storage cupboard.
This little row of cottages is set adjacent to Stamford Lane, with panoramic views over open fields to the side and allotments to the rear.
A good-sized garden lies to the front of the cottage, which is mainly laid to lawn with an apple tree, hedges to the sides and established bushes. A gravel path approaches the front door and round to the side garden.
Double wrought iron gates open onto a block-paved area to the side of the house, from where French doors also open from the kitchen. It is evident that the current owners adore their outdoor space and gardening, as there is a plethora of pots and fruit plants as well as a herb garden. Included in the array of edibles are strawberries, a grapevine, blackcurrant, blueberries, marjoram and sage to name but a few.
Wooden gates access the rear garden, where there is a patio area off the back of the house and a brick path leads to the good-sized lawn. A variety of shrubs, flowers and trees including a hawthorn tree, eucalyptus, ornamental cherry tree, are to be found here. A gravelled area at the bottom of the garden has room for a shed, summerhouse or even a home office. This south-facing garden is a sun-lovers dream and coupled with the tranquil surroundings, is a peaceful secluded haven.
Warmington is a vibrant, Northamptonshire village in close proximity to the border with Cambridgeshire. Surrounded by countryside, it has a post office and general stores, butchers, a public house/restaurant, primary school and village hall. Further amenities can be found in the nearby town of Oundle, just 3 miles away. Here you will find an excellent range of independent shops, cafes, restaurants, public houses and schools. Alongside these, Oundle is home to the Stahl Theatre and historic Talbot Hotel. There are excellent roads with the nearby A1M and A14, and countrywide rail network links from Peterborough and Corby.
What the vendors love about their home…..
The owners of this lovely cottage were first drawn to it because of the garden and the ‘hard to beat’ views, as well as the lifestyle that Warmington offers. With a shop and pub, amazing walks and runs straight into the countryside were a big pull for the vendors.
Cosy nights in front of the wood burning stove, and long summer evenings in the garden will undoubtedly be missed by this family.
