This charming red brick end-of–terrace cottage is approximately 130 years old that has had a complete renovation programme carried out over recent years ensuring its wonderful character is enhanced with a lovely modern extension.
The two-bedroom property is immaculate, with open plan living downstairs and the benefit of a cloakroom and utility off the kitchen area. In addition, there is a wood- burning stove and under-floor heating with thermostats in kitchen, utility and bathrooms. Externally there is a wonderfully landscaped garden and off road parking for one vehicle . All windows are double glazed in keeping with the cottage style of this home.
The half-glass front door, which has a characterful wooden canopy over it, leads into the reception room.
The flow of the downstairs accommodation gives a well-defined feel to the living, dining and kitchen. A wood-burning stove set into the chimney breast is the focal feature in this lovely room, which has an engineered wood floor and a large window to the front. There is room for a dining table and chairs next to the kitchen, carpeted stairs lead off this area to the first floor, and the space under the stairs adds another dimension to the lounge, with room for a bookcase or storage.
The modern kitchen, benefitting from under-floor heating, is an airy and wide galley, with a Velux rooflight in its sloping ceiling. Plenty of storage base and wall-cupboards are provided with wood-effect counter top and grey metro tiles. Appliances include an extractor hood over the Smeg induction stove and double oven and a dishwasher. A window further illuminates the room, and glazed door leads to the beautiful garden.
Leading from the kitchen is a utility with room for a freestanding washing machine and freezer, and wall cupboards above the wood-effect work surface. There is also underfloor heating in this space.
A door from the utility room leads into a spacious cloakroom with two small obscured glass windows, containing a pedestal hand basin, heated towel rail and W.C., with space for coats or boots.
The carpeted stairs lead to the first floor landing which has a loft access above. The loft has a light and is a fully boarded space that is great for storage.
This double bedroom has a large window overlooking the garden and a view beyond to the allotments and countryside. There is space here for a bureau or wardrobe as well as bedside tables.
A similar sized bedroom overlooks the front of the property with enough room for a wardrobe or bureau and double bed.
The bathroom is a generous-sized room with large porcelain under-floor heated tiles. The bath has an electric shower over with a glass screen, and there is a pedestal hand-wash basin, heated towel rail, and a low-level W.C. The wall tiles and splashbacks are contemporary and attractive and a small opaque window looks over the front garden.
The property is the end of terrace cottage of this quaint row of four cottages off Stamford Lane. It is approached by a gravel path to a pretty front garden edged in brick in front of the cottage. Next to it is a log store, trellis and a wooden arch covered in roses and other climbing plants. Concrete hardstanding provides parking for a motorbike.
A shared path leads to a gate that accesses the rear garden from the front.
One gravelled allocated off road parking space is provided.
The beautifully landscaped garden consists of various areas divided by trellising or garden beds and the whole garden is encased by painted wooden fences that are decorated in a subtle green that harmonises beautifully with the abundance of plants. The kitchen door and side gate open on to a flagged area with a useful garden shed and space for flowering pots. The path, flanked by a border with mature shrubs and plants, then leads an outdoor dining area set on a round feature patio. The back of the garden is laid to grass with a further generous-sized garden shed set alongside the back fence and trellis, over which climbs a passion fruit, that is flowering and fruiting with abandon.
The garden has electric lights set at various points that enhance the magic of this stunning small garden at night.
Warmington is a thriving village in the Northamptonshire countryside. It has a post office and general stores, butchers, a public house/restaurant, primary school and village hall, a 13th century church and many listed buildings. Nearby is the historic market town of Oundle where there are further amenities, schools and health centre. The whole area has excellent road and country-wide rail links through Peterborough and Corby.
What the current vendors love about their home......
The quiet village setting with the choice of walks from the doorstep are one of the reasons the current owners fell in love with their cottage. They also adore the open plan layout downstairs with the high quality finish throughout and cosy nights in front of the log burner.
