A wonderful two-bedroom top floor apartment within the Drill Hall complex in the historic Market town of Oundle.
The Drill Hall was originally built in the 1920s for the Territorials Squadron of the Northamptonshire Yeomanry, for the purpose of drilling, and marching and practising tactics. The building retains its original façade and was renovated to create eight luxury apartments in 2015.
Located on the edge of the town centre, it is within walkable distance to the marketplace, which has a variety of independent shops and restaurants. Oundle is within 15 miles of Peterborough and Stamford, offering further shopping and leisure facilities, as well as travel links.
From the bright spacious communal hallway, is the secure door leading to the property’s own entrance hall. With wooden flooring and white walls, the modern feel continues throughout the home.
To one end of the entrance hall is the main living area with an open-plan kitchen. Sloped ceilings with skylights to the south make this room bright and airy, with a main window looking out over the rooftops of the historic buildings in the town and St Peter's Church. The wooden flooring continues into the living area with space for a dining table as well as lounge furniture.
The kitchen area is an L-shape, designed into the corner to allow plenty of cupboards and worksurfaces, without encroaching into the living area. A tiled floor creates a divide, and the backdrop for the muted kitchen cupboards with wooden worksurfaces, fitted with a stainless-steel sink with mixer tap, and a gas hob with oven and co-ordinating extractor hood. Integrated appliances of a fridge/freezer and dishwasher are neatly concealed, and additionally there is plumbing for a washer dryer.
On the opposite end of the hallway, to the living area, is the ample-sized main bedroom, with sleek fitted wardrobes in a white design from Hammonds. The room has been utilised to create a calm bedroom with plenty of storage. A skylight brings in light, and the neutral tones and carpet enhance this spacious double bedroom with en-suite.
Another modern shower room, decorated in the same tones as the main shower room. The gloss tiles and white walls are additionally brightened by the room’s skylight. Again, there is a white suite consisting of a pedestal wash basin, WC and corner shower, with room for an additional storage or vanity unit.
A double bedroom with neutral decoration and carpet, this room has a southern skylight for natural light.
A contemporary shower room, tastefully decorated with gloss brick tiles and a white suite consisting of a pedestal wash basin, WC, and a corner shower enclosure with a chrome mixer shower. Sleek, white floor tiles complete the look, with a chrome, wall-mounted, heated towel rail.
The property is set within the historic Drill Hall building, with a large, glazed security door, and a phone entry system. Spacious, communal, well-maintained hallways and stairs lead to the apartments. The property has an allocated parking space for one vehicle, which is viewable from the apartment, and further parking is available in the adjacent long stay carpark.
With the convenient location on the edge of the town centre, this modern apartment has been thoughtfully designed to create a high-quality home in keeping with the original building.
