A former hunting lodge has been beautifully converted into a unique 'Des Res' in Oundle, within walking distance of Oundle's Market Place. This luxurious duplex apartment, is one of four apartments within the converted lodge, affords two double bedrooms with en-suites and a spacious living area. The original 1850 build proportions create opulent ambiance, and the apartment is finished to a very high standard. It occupies a quiet, yet central location in Oundle, within walking distance of all the amenities this historic town has to offer, including a wide range of shops, restaurants and leisure facilities. The town is renowned for its excellent schooling for all ages, and its close proximity to Peterborough, Kettering and Corby all offering direct train links into central London in under an hour.
The imposing Gothic-style doorway with a carved stone portico takes you through a partially glazed original door into a splendid communal hallway. The Lodge has stately proportions with high ceilings and a sweeping staircase leading to the first floor.
The apartment's front door opens into a bright hallway with solid wood flooring. Doors lead from the hall to the rooms, a staircase leads downstairs to the ground floor level, and the solid wood flooring continues into the reception room.
A cloakroom off the hallway houses a modern white wall hung wash hand basin and low level WC, and provides space for coats and shoes.
This wonderful, spacious open-plan room has a high ceiling and large dual aspect windows with shutters. Original features of panelled walls, high skirting and picture rails add atmosphere to this magnificent room. A light well in the floor of the bay brightens the room below.

Neff built-in appliances include a dishwasher, washer/dryer, fan-assisted oven, electric hob and extractor fan. An inset sink blends seamlessly with the white granite worktops. A central island unit with granite top provides additional storage and a social place to dine and chat.
