Situated within walking distance of the centre of the historic town of Oundle, this immaculate 3/4 bedroom house was built in 1992. It has been imaginatively extended and lovingly looked after by the present owners to provide a spacious and comfortable property that sits within a popular estate in a quiet cul-de-sac.
Externally the property comes with off-road parking for two cars, a separate garage and a beautifully landscaped rear garden.
Internally it provides excellent room for a family, the accommodation includes a large living room leading into the dining room with views over the garden, a kitchen and utility and a study/fourth bedroom. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms, one with en suite shower room, one large single and a family bathroom. Each bedroom has a large built-in wardrobe.
The front door is accessed by a large glazed, tiled porch that contains a cupboard for wellies and outdoor garments.
A half glazed front door provides light for the wide entrance hall that is welcoming with wood flooring that flows into the study/fourth bedroom and down the hallway into the cloakroom. A carpeted staircase with open balusters leads to the first floor with a generous under-stairs storage cupboard.
Another door from the hallway leads to a downstairs cloakroom, with built-in sink and cupboard beneath and tiled splashback, a W.C., towel rail, and a very handy set of recessed glass and tiled shelves for towels and other items.
Across the hall from the living room lies the study or a room that could easily be a playroom, workroom or fourth bedroom. It has a deep square bay window with a front aspect, and room for desk, single bed and other furniture.
The lounge is spacious and newly carpeted with a window to the front aspect with white shutters, and plenty of room for furniture and television. The extension that provides a dining room is separated from the living room by large glass sliding doors that give both privacy and contain warmth.
The dining room has large porcelain floor tiles that run through to the kitchen and utility rooms. It has a skylight, windows and French doors to the garden and to the kitchen.
French doors make this a very light kitchen, also part of the extension, and there is a triple window overlooking the pretty garden. The kitchen is beautifully equipped with modern features including deep saucepan drawers, a magic corner cupboard, and a pull-out larder cupboard. There is an induction hob with a stainless steel splashback, an extraction hood above, and a separate eye-level double oven. There are laminate worksurfaces and good lighting beneath the plentiful wall-hung and base cupboards with soft-closing doors. An archway leads to the utility.
This well-equipped room, previously the old kitchen, is furnished with the same fittings as the new kitchen with plenty of base and wall-hung units, a sink, room for washing machine and tumble dryer, and an American fridge-freezer. There is a gas boiler housed here and a rack for wine bottles.
A carpeted staircase with wooden balustrade lead to a spacious landing. There is a window at the top of these stairs and an loft hatch above. The loft is fully insulated and part-boarded.
With plenty of space for double bed and bedroom furniture, this lovely main bedroom is recently carpeted and has a window overlooking the rear garden. A sliding mirrored door opens to a deep built-in wardrobe.
The en suite is fully tiled with a large shower cubicle. The en suite also contains mirrored and lighted cabinet, an opaque window, W.C., pedestal hand-basin and a towel rail.
A carpeted double bedroom has a window to the front aspect with a radiator beneath. There is a large fitted cupboard.
Bedroom three is a generous single bedroom that has views to the sunny rear, and a large built-in wardrobe.
The family bathroom is tiled with large grey and white porcelain tiles, built -in cupboards with integral wash hand-basin and WC. There is a large ‘P’-shaped bath with a full shower and a curved glass shower door and a towel rail.
In addition to the pleasing front aspect leading to the front door and parking for two cars, the driveway is gated. In the rear garden, an arbour and paved path leads by way of wheelie-bin space and a large raised bed for vegetables to the single garage, used here as an effective ‘man-cave’ and with power and lighting.
As well as a patio area, the garden, which is enclosed by wooden fencing, has a lawn area and a seating area, all surrounded by beautiful planting: a cherry tree, climbing roses and bedding is all grown in a south-facing space, which is a true sun-trap.
What the owners love about their house.......
This house was the just right size to bring up a young family: the schools and the town provided all they needed. The town and the surrounding villages and countryside are lovely, and it is centrally located with good road connections. The house is in a quiet cul-de-sac and we were able to carry out a number of improvements over the years, successfully to enhance the property.
Oundle, an historic market town, lies just five miles from the Cambridgeshire border and is conveniently situated seven miles from the A14 and ten miles from the A1 motorway. Nearby Peterborough, Kettering and Corby all offer direct train links to London in under an hour.
Amongst the town’s facilities there are many traditional independent shops, three supermarkets, several public houses, some with accommodation, library, health centre, and a hotel. It has excellent schooling for all ages, including the prestigious Oundle Public School. The extensive and beautiful Barnwell Park is nearby. Oundle is a thriving area in which to live and work.
