Situated in the heart of Northampton is this well maintained double bay fronted Victorian residence that we're led to believe was built by Mr J Watkin circa 1880 for himself and his family, records suggest that he built a row of four unique properties as a sign of wealth and workmanship for himself and his family. As you enter the substantial home you're greeted with a beautiful oak staircase that stands proud in the grand hallway that's laid with solid oak flooring which flows through into the cosy lounge which has a magnificent original sash bay window to the rear aspect. The kitchen/dining room is the hub of the property, with an abundance of space and large dual aspect original windows. The dining area has an eye catching original fireplace, Victorian coving and picture rail surround. Finishing off the downstairs is the study to the front aspect. Stairs lead to the cellar conversion that lends itself as a family room/den for the children and utility room, a store room and a shower room w/c.The first floor accommodation comprises spacious landing with a large window overlooking the Racecourse Park, branches off to four double bedrooms, each fitted with built in wardrobes and finally refitted four piece family bathroom. Externally, you have a laid to lawn area with mature shrub boarder and private iron bar gate that leads you to the path adjoining the Racecourse Park. This property has maintained its original features with a modern feel thought-out and is a must see.
Watkin Terrace is situated within walking distance to both Northampton town centre and the new Northampton Railway Station that marks the start of an exciting town centre development decade at almost twice the size of the current railway station, it will welcome visitors, commuters and businesses for generations to come, there are regular services between London Euston and Birmingham New Street and closer still is the main bus terminal in Greyfriars. The surrounding area is predominately Victorian properties and near-by Kettering Road, where you will find a host of shops, restaurants, cafes and public houses. The property literally back's onto the Racecourse Park and is also conveniently located for access to The Mounts Baths and the Grosvenor Shopping Centre. Due to the historical links of the Racecourse to Northampton's history, it remains one of the town's famous landmarks. As referred to in its name, the Racecourse once held regular race meetings. These were however stopped in 1904 due to the high number of fatalities and accidents caused by the close tight racing.
