Built just 10 years ago, Copley House has been stylishly designed and is brimming with high specification fixtures and fittings to include underfloor heating, premium quality Oak internal doors, built in blinds to windows, oak staircase and luxury fitted kitchen. In addition, the property is extremely energy efficient with solar panels on a FiT.
This three-bedroomed, detached family home has a secluded patio garden, and off-road parking for two vehicles and offers low-maintenance modern living.
Situated off Glapthorn Road, the property is conveniently placed for a short stroll to Oundle’s marketplace with its independent shops, eateries and three supermarkets.
The property is entered via a half-glazed door, the entrance hall has a good-sized storage cupboard, ceiling downlighters and superior quality laminate flooring, that continues through to the living area and cloakroom, giving clean lines.
The downstairs cloakroom has ceiling downlighters and an obscure glazed window to the front aspect. A modern white suite consists of a low-level W.C. and a hand basin inset into a vanity unit.
This well proportioned reception room has plenty of natural light from the French doors, with integral blinds, that open onto the west-facing patio, as well as windows to the front and rear. A custom-made Oak staircase, with steel open balustrades, is a lovely feature and has a recess under. Laminate flooring and ceiling downlighters complete this room. Each room has its own thermostatic control for the underfloor heating that runs throughout the house.
Another light and spacious room, with cream high gloss floor tiles, under-cupboard lighting, ceiling downlighters and double glazed windows with built in blinds to both the front and rear of the property. The kitchen/diner has been luxuriously fitted with a comprehensive range of cream-coloured gloss base and eye-level units, with co-ordinating Corian worktops with upstands, and a 1.5 bowl, single drainer sink unit. Incorporated appliances include: an induction hob with extractor hood over, an eye-level double oven, a microwave oven, dishwasher, washer/dryer and an American style fridge/freezer. Ample room is provided for a large eight seater dining table and chairs.
Rising from the living room, the staircase leads to the landing that has an airing cupboard with shelving, and laminate flooring through to all the bedrooms. A hatch accesses the fully insulated, partly boarded loft.
The main bedroom is a very good size, with a built-in double wardrobe with Oak doors, ceiling downlighters and a window overlooking the front of the property. The stylish built in blinds to the windows continue to the upstairs rooms. A door leads through to the en-suite.
With a large shower cubicle, with drencher head and separate shower attachment, a pedestal wash hand basin and low-level W.C., the en-suite is a good size. In addition, this room has vinyl flooring, an obscure glazed window to the side elevation and a heated towel rail.
This double bedroom has laminate flooring, ceiling downlighters and a window with blinds to the side aspect. Each bedroom has its own thermostat to cater for everyone's heating preference.
Another double room is situated at the front of the house and has laminate flooring and ceiling downlighters.
The main bathroom has modern, neutral-coloured tiling, with the suite comprising a panelled bath, with shower attachment over and glass screen, pedestal wash hand basin and low-level W.C. An obscure glazed window to the front elevation, vinyl flooring and chrome heated towel rail completes this room.
Copley House has a brick retaining wall with ironwork railings, a gate to the front boundary. To soften the edges there is a combination of small hedging, a couple of trees and planted borders to the paving that leads to the front door.
To the side of the property, entered from either the living room French doors, or via the gated access from the front, an unexpectedly private courtyard garden has ample room for outside seating and dining. An arbour and climbing plants to the fencing add colour and interest to this peaceful setting. A mixture of shrubs, trees and flowers are planted in the borders. Gated access to the rear of the house provides a small amount of outside storage.
Parking for two vehicles is provided on the driveway at the side of the property, which is gated, and adjacent to the side garden. At the bottom of the drive there is a shed and room to store bins. A gate in the side fence enters the garden.
What the current vendor loves about their home………
The owner of this lovely home really enjoys the secluded garden and the proximity of her home to Oundle’s marketplace. One of the main elements to Copley House, for the vendor, is the quality of the finish, especially in the kitchen/diner, as well as the amount of space the bedrooms and ground floor accommodation offers.
Oundle is a bustling market town with thriving shops, restaurants and businesses. The doctors’ surgery and the library are within walking distance of the property, and the primary and secondary schools are less than a mile away.
Oundle nestles on the River Nene in the pretty rural county of Northamptonshire, surrounded by beautiful countryside and picturesque villages, yet Peterborough, Kettering, Corby and Stamford are within a 15-mile radius, providing good links to the rail and road networks.
