A deceptively spacious family home that is set back from the road and enjoys a peaceful rear garden extending to a secluded copse at the back.
Boasting three double bedrooms, off-road parking for several vehicles, and being naturally light throughout, this well-maintained semi-detached house had a two-storey extension added just three years ago. It now offers a contemporary open-plan kitchen/dining/living space with bi-fold doors opening onto the back garden, and an extended main bedroom with en-suite shower room.
An internal viewing is an absolute must.
On entry, a small lobby, with wooden flooring, has a door leading into the front living room, and straight stairs rising to the first floor.
This lovely bright room has wooden flooring and two windows to the south-facing front aspect. A feature tiled hearth and oak mantle, which houses an electric wood-burner style fire, make a great focal point. A door leads through to the side lobby.
With gloss porcelain flooring, this area provides a useful entrance at the side of the property and leads into the open-plan kitchen/dining area. Here, there is a door to the bathroom and access to the under-stair pantry. A high window allows natural light into the side.
The modern fitted bathroom has tiled flooring and half-tiled walls. The bath has a shower over with a glass screen, an inset wash hand basin to a vanity cupboard and a low-level W.C.
Having been the subject of a contemporary extension three years ago, this fabulously light room has cream-coloured, gloss porcelain flooring and bi-fold doors at the back of the property, with views over the rear garden, as well as patio doors to the side, allowing maximum light to flood in. A good range of neutral-coloured base cupboards with wood worktops, and a non-fixed matching island, offering versatility to the layout. Dividing the dining area from the kitchen, the worktop incorporates a stainless-steel, single drainer sink unit, with plumbing under for a washing machine and dishwasher. A feature of the induction hob is the coloured glass splashback, and stainless-steel extractor hood over. The oven and grill are placed at eye level. Space is provided for a tall fridge/freezer, and there is ample room for a dining table and chairs, plus a settee if desired.
The landing has a window to the side, and a hatch accesses the partly boarded loft.
This extended double bedroom has a feature slanted roof, with great views over the back garden and beyond to Heron’s Wood copse. There is space in this room for a king-size bed as well as associated bedroom furniture.
Situated off the landing and currently a walk through to the main bedroom, the shower room can be utilised as an en-suite or easily adapted with a stud wall to create a separate hallway. This stylish room has modern tiling to the shower cubicle, with drencher and mixer attachment, a wall-hung wash hand basin and low-level W.C., laminate flooring, a modern radiator and a high obscure glazed window.
At the front of the house this double bedroom has two windows, with space for a king-size bed, as well as wardrobes. The over-stairs cupboard houses the boiler.
Another large room, with space for a double bed and workstation. A window overlooks the rear elevation.
99 Benefield Road is set back from the road with a gravel frontage, that gives off-road parking for several vehicles. A side border has a lovely display of sedums and lavender to soften the edges. A path to the side of the drive is shared with the neighbouring property and leads to the front door and a wooden gate to the side, allowing access to the rear garden.
Through the side pedestrian gate, a canopied porch houses coat and boot storage, and makes an ideal entrance to the property.
Following the path round to the back of the house, an unexpectedly long garden awaits, with a variety of seating choices, depending on your preference for the shade or sun. This perfect setting has separate zones leading on from one another, including vegetable plots and a couple of sheds.
A patio area is situated off the back of the house from the bi-fold doors, making an ideal spot for enjoying outside dining.
A vast variety of planting includes flowers, shrubs, trees, hedges and herbs to the borders of each area. At the very bottom, a gate in the fence gives access to Heron’s Wood; residents in this vicinity have Informal Rights to Walk on this land. The private garden is extremely peaceful with just the sound of the trees and nature.
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.
What the current vendors love about their home….
The views from the lovely open plan extension, over the tranquil garden, with trees beyond are one of the main attractions for the owners. They love the fact they can walk out of the back of their garden to the woodland at the rear, and yet the town is within walking distance. Additionally, there is direct bus access to Peterborough and Corby. Another attribute for them is the amount of natural light that floods throughout the accommodation.
