Property description

Sitting in picture-perfect landscaped gardens at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac in the delightful village of Great Easton, Ford Bank mirrors the trend for open-plan living.

Having undergone a comprehensive programme of refurbishment, this fabulous 2,079 sq ft detached four-bedroom home oozes space and style and has the considerable bonus of being chain-free, so it’s ready and waiting to be moved into. And it’s a great location too – Great Easton is a sought-after and thriving village in the pretty Welland Valley with a pub, shop/PO and village hall.

What a luxurious home this is! The current owners engaged Corporate Architecture of Market Harborough to design and project-manage the contemporary update, which was completed a year ago.

At its heart is a free-flow kitchen/family room which measures an enormous 36x11ft. It really has the ‘wow’ factor and is a natural gathering spot for family meals and relaxation. The delightful fitted kitchen occupies one end, overlooking the rear garden, leaving loads of space for a dining table and chairs, plus a chill-out zone with L-shaped sofa and TV – or, indeed, whatever you desire – in this elegant, light and airy room.

Just about everything you could think of has been included in the super-stylish makeover, starting with the nuts and bolts of a complete new plumbing system and electrics, then the addition of a hardwire alarm system and Cat 5 cabling with wall-mounted Smart TV connection points and four-zone heating which includes underfloor heating throughout the ground floor.
An elegant oak and glass staircase adds a voguish flourish to the entrance hall, and ultra-cool bifold doors have been installed in the kitchen and living room. All the windows and doors have been replaced, the family bathroom and master bedroom en-suite have been completely refitted and tiled floor-to-ceiling, and all the ground-floor windows and bifolds have electrically-operated blinds. A smart wall-recessed gas fire has been installed in the living room.

To finish off this superlative revamp, the house has been redecorated from top-to-toe, deluxe Amtico wood flooring laid throughout the ground floor and plush new carpeting upstairs.
Yes, this house is simply gorgeous – and the designer gardens are the icing on the cake. They were professionally landscaped three years ago and have a Mediterranean vibe, with a series of patio terraces and lush planting.

We’re sure you want to hear all the finer details of 5 Ford Bank, so please do let us show you round.

A luxury home that ticks all the boxes

Built from local stone, 5 Ford Bank is accessed via a gravel driveway, flanked by a manicured border and trees and sweeping round to the parking space for several cars in front of the detached double garage, which lies opposite the house. There’s a neat landscaped garden in front of the house which features attractive two-tone paving - which is echoed in the rear garden design.

You’ll be wowed as soon as you enter the front door into the entrance hall where the striking ultra-modern open-tread oak staircase with glass banisters curves gently to the first floor. The downstairs cloakroom with WC lies at the rear of the hall while, to the left, glazed double doors open into the open-plan kitchen/family room. The fitted kitchen occupies the rear of this space, overlooking the rear garden via a large window above the sink and swish bifold doors, which can be opened up in the summer for easy entertaining on the terrace.

The kitchen with sleek Kashmir coloured units under marble worktops is configured with everything neatly to hand and there’s a large central island, in toning grey, with a built-in wine cooler and space for a couple of bar stools – ideal for grabbing quick breakfasts or for the children to do their homework. There’s a Quooker boiling water tap for instant cuppas, an American-style fridge/freezer, dual fuel range cooker with overhead extractor and marbled splash-back, integral dishwasher.

A utility room with sink and a built-in cupboard, plumbing for a washer dryer, ideal for a pantry, leads off from the kitchen.

A door leads from the other side of the entrance hall into the lovely dual-aspect 21x12ft living room with bifold doors onto the rear terrace. The wall-recessed gas fire is the warming focus of the room. For entertaining ease in the summer, the bifolds in both here and the kitchen could be opened up to allow convivial free-flow access to all the ground floor rooms.

Time for bed, sleepy heads

Climb the stairs to the landing, which is generously sized and has the perfect place under a window to position a comfy chair for quiet reading.

There is a quartet of bedrooms, all of a good size. The master bedroom, 15x12ft, has a large ceramic marble effect tiled en-suite with sleek white sanitary-ware including a luxe bathtub and black grid-style shower enclosure.

Bedroom two, 14x11ft, has a built-in double wardrobe and revamped en-suite shower room, and there’s also a family bathroom with bath tub.

There are two further bedrooms, ensuring a family can all have their own space and there’s no fighting for bathrooms in the morning!

A garden to cherish

If you have ever dreamed of a designer garden, then look no further. Private, peaceful and professionally designed and laid out three years ago, the rear garden of 5 Ford Bank provokes admiration at every turn.

With the two-tone paving and gravel areas complemented by a lush lawn, trees and a trio of patios at different levels to catch the sun at all time of the day, it’s all simply lovely and has a rather Provencal feel.

The largest rectangular patio, bordered with old railway sleepers, is next to the house and perfect for summertime al fresco dining, while a superb sloping shrubbery lies behind a gently
curved low stone wall and timber steps access two further patio seating areas at different heights, surrounded by further planting and a gently trickling waterfall.

Out and about

Blessed with the necessities of everyday life on the doorstep, Great Easton is a thriving village with most of the leisure activities centred around the village hall which hosts a variety of clubs and classes such as boxercise, tai chi, choir, garden society, the Great Easton Little Theatre Company and youth club.

The Grade II Listed village local, The Sun Inn, has been recently renovated and is now a favourite of discerning foodies. The steaks from the Josper charcoal grill and Sunday lunches are legendary and it’s family-orientated with children and dogs made very welcome. The village shop and Post Office is the place to pick up day-to-day provisions and there’s an excellent village school, Bringhurst primary.

If you fancy a slightly longer stroll with a pint at the end, there are two further pubs in nearby Caldecott, and the surrounding countryside is idyllic for any amount of walking, cycling or horse-riding. Nearby Eye Brook reservoir is a haven for wintering wildfowl and Rutland Water offers sailing, fishing and a cycle route.

Supermarkets including Sainsbury’s and Waitrose are located two miles away in the bustling town of Market Harborough, which also offers a wide range of shops, pubs, restaurants, coffee shops and leisure options. Corby East Midlands International Pool is an outstanding place to swim and get fit with three fabulous swimming pools, Aqua Tube body ride, diving boards, gym, exercise studio and café. There’s further excellent shopping and facilities in Uppingham, six miles, and Market Harborough, ten miles away.

There’s a selection of primary schools in Corby and secondary schools including Corby Technical School, Ofsted-rated outstanding, and Kingswood Secondary Academy, rated good. Private schools in the vicinity include Uppingham, Oakham, St Peter’s and Brook House College.

London commuters can catch high-speed trains to St Pancras International from Market Harborough and Kettering, arriving in less than an hour. The A47 trunk road connects the cities of Leicester and Peterborough, while the A6003 links to Kettering with access to the A14 leading east and west. East Midlands, Birmingham, Luton and Stansted airports are within easy reach.
