Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A Grade II Listed late medieval house with walled rear garden and off-road parking in Oundle's town centre, close to its historic Market Place

Location

The property is positioned in the centre of the Market Town of Oundle, close to its historic Market Place. The town is renowned for the quality and beauty of its largely Georgian streetscapes and for its Public School, which was founded in 1556 by William Laxton, then Lord Mayor of London.

Well placed for wider road and rail connections to the capital, the A14 is about 7 miles south of the town, with the A1 about 9 miles to the east. The town is also almost centrally positioned between Peterborough to the north-east, Kettering and Wellingborough to the south-west, all of which have mainline railway stations to London.

Description

A striking south facing three storey stone under Collyweston slate house, 9 West Street offers classically proportioned and symmetrical principal accommodation with many retained period features and a high degree of charm.

The house is entered from West Street into a spacious dual-aspect reception dining hallway, alongside which the bay-windowed sitting room has an attractive open fireplace. Both rooms are south facing with solid oak floors. The kitchen/breakfast room occupies the core of the house, with an extensive fitted suite and a range cooker positioned within the original chimney breast. A utility/rear lobby, from which there are stairs down to the property's cellar, accesses a versatile, dual-aspect and oak floored garden room, ideal as a playroom or office, from which patio doors open to the garden.

A glazed stairwell rises to the first floor landing. At first floor there are three generous double bedrooms, two overlooking the street, served by the family bathroom and a principal bedroom with a dressing area and en-suite bathroom. Stairs then rise to a fourth double bedroom with en-suite bathroom on the second floor.

The private walled garden lies to the rear of the house and incorporate off-road vehicular parking for which double gates allow access to the garden from Drumming Well Lane. It incorporates well stocked flowering and shrub filled beds, ensuring a good depth of colour, a summer house and upper and lower terraces.

Square Footage: 2,705 sq ft
