Situated in the beautiful and historic village of Barnwell, this pretty 3-bedroom home at the end of a terrace of three has an elevated position on a quiet road with an area of grass and some flowering cherries in front.

The property has been lovingly looked after and improved, and its setting next to the fields yet within the village is peaceful and charming. It is on a gentle incline with a path and a few easy steps, leading to the landscaped front garden.

An outdoor office and large shed offer further space. This family friendly property has a multi-fuel stove, and all the windows are double-glazed.

Entrance Hall

The new composite entrance door has leaded glass and a window to the side. The small hallway has ceramic tiled flooring with carpeted stairs to the right and a door to the kitchen and living room.

Kitchen (2.3m x 4.2m)

Well equipped, the kitchen has a range of base and wall-hung units in white with attractive handles. It has a vinyl floor and blue metro tiles and wood worktop surfaces. The hob, with glass splashback is halogen with an electric oven and grill underneath, and above there is an extractor hood. The kitchen also includes a double ceramic sink with mixer tap, and plenty of counter top surface area for small appliances.
An alcove within the kitchen is a suitable area for a washing machine with a dryer on top. A double window and a further window gives both light and a spectacular view to the rear garden to the fields beyond, and the garden can be accessed from the kitchen through a half-glazed door.

Downstairs cloakroom

Leading off the kitchen is a downstairs cloakroom containing a small wash hand basin and WC.

Lounge Diner (5.1m x 5.3m)

This good-sized L-shaped living space has room by the double French sliding doors to the garden for a large dining table. A small hatch is set in the wall between the kitchen and dining room.

A cosy living room with plenty of space for a large sofa and other living room furniture. It has an electric heater below the window to the front, rarely needed when the multi-fuel burner, set into the original fireplace is on. There are handmade railway sleeper shelving and practical wood-effect ceramic floor tiles. An under-stairs cupboard provides storage and coat hanging space.

Stairs and landing

Newly carpeted stairs rise to the first floor where there is hatch access to the loft and an airing cupboard with immersion water tank.

Main bedroom (3.3m x 3.7m)

Dual aspect to the front and side gives this double bedroom lots of natural light, and there is plenty of room for bedroom furniture too. With natural pine floorboards, additionally there is an electric heater and fitted wardrobe with hanging and shelf space.

Bedroom Two (3.5m x 3m)

This is a large double room with original pine flooring and a wide window to the front aspect. Space is provided for a built in wardrobe, but there is a lot of carefully planned hanging shelf space too.

Bedroom Three (2.3m x 2.4m)

A good sized single room with wood flooring and a window overlooking the garden. Shelf space, hanging hooks and room for a bureau is provided.

Family Bathroom (1.7m x 1.7m)

With vinyl tiled flooring, the family bathroom has white metro tiles. An obscure glazed window to the rear sits over a stylish rectangular wash hand basin fitted into a unit. A ‘P’ shaped bath with a glass shower door has a new and highly efficient power shower. In addition there is an electric towel rail.

W.C.

This is a separate room with toilet, a single obscure glazed window, vinyl flooring, and a fitted bathroom cabinet.

Exterior

Set back from the road, slightly elevated, there is a lawn front garden with planted borders, a path to the front door and room for a seat. Gated side access leads into the rear garden.

A lovely rear garden, accessed by the sliding doors from the dining room, leading on to a patio, and to a wood decking area at the rear of the property. The garden is otherwise mainly laid to grass, with some planted raised beds around the side. Beyond are fields and extensive views that can be enjoyed both from outside and in. The large garden shed sits on a graveled area, which also has a wooden clad garden office with an air conditioning unit, electricity, ceiling light, wall heater and wood-effect flooring. This is a large room with French doors and two floor to ceiling windows that overlook the garden- a haven of peace and calm.

This thriving and idyllic village is in a quiet location, just off the A 605 and just 2.5 miles from the market town of Oundle. The village has royal connections, with the former home of the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester being the manor, and the 13th century ruined castle part of that estate.

There is a village shop with a post office, a pre-school, Little Elms, and a church, plus a well-known restaurant and traditional village pub, the Montagu Arms. Close by is the lovely Barnwell Country Park that has beautiful walks and wildlife to view on the lakes, and has a café and a large children’s playground.

Corby, Stamford and Peterborough are all within 15 miles, with rail links to London and access to the A1 and A14.
