The conservation village of Wadenhoe lies on the River Nene in gently rolling landscape, and many of the buildings are listed as being of special architectural or historical interest. The majority are built of local limestone, with either thatched or Collyweston roofing, with a number of properties being owned and maintained by The Wadenhoe Trust. The village benefits from a local freehouse pub The Kings Head, with riverside garden and a village hall, as well as the Church on the hill. There are walks along the river and also to the National Trust property of Lyveden New Bield. The traditional market town of Oundle lies some 4 miles to the north providing a range of traditional shops and businesses which are principally set around the Georgian market place. There is excellent schooling in the area, most prominently in Oundle but also Stamford, Oakham, Uppingham and Kimbolton are within easy reach. Communications are excellent with train services available to London St Pancras from Kettering and to London Kings Cross from Peterborough. Other local stations are Huntingdon and Wellingborough. Road communications both east and west available via the A14 linking to the A1 and M1. Sporting facilities in the area are numerous with sailing available at Grafham Water to the south or Rutland Water to the north. Golf and tennis at Oundle. Horse racing at Huntingdon. Numerous walks locally. International air travel at Stansted via the M11 and A14, Luton to the south via the A1 whilst Birmingham is to the west.
Set in a plot of approaching ¼ acre, Bearshank House sits in an elevated position in the village of Wadenhoe. A modern, stone-built property designed with respect for the local heritage, Bearshank House offers extended accommodation with further potential to adapt and improve, subject to the necessary consents. A traditional style front door with fanlight over opens on to a central entrance hall with stairs leading up to the first floor. From the hall, the generous kitchen/dining room leads off to the left, open from front to back taking advantage of the depth of the house and introducing light from the attractive south facing gardens with views across the countryside. The kitchen is well-fitted with a dark blue AGA, a range of wall and floor mounted units, and space for free-standing appliances. There is an alcove at the far end in addition to a walk-in pantry and a doorway leads to the back door and rear corridor. Double doors open from the dining area onto the drawing room, allowing a sense of the open plan, whilst maintaining clearly defined rooms. The triple aspect drawing room overlooks the gardens to the rear, with French Doors leading onto the sheltered limestone terraces. It has an open fireplace with wide detailed mantel and surround in a heritage style. Beyond the kitchen is a sunroom, also with double doors opening onto the rear terrace, and a substantial utility and laundry room with fitted storage units. From here, stairs rise to a spacious vaulted games room which leads to the office and separate shower-room. The layout lends itself to a potential annexe, or work from home space that is entirely independent from the principal accommodation. Also on the ground floor is a useful study and cloakroom. To the first floor of the main house, there is a principal dual aspect bedroom with extensive views and a generous en-suite shower room and a range of built-in wardrobes. There are three further bedrooms, two of which also have built in wardrobes, a family bathroom, and on the landing, an excellent range of storage cupboards.
To one side, driveway parking is available immediately to the front of the large double garage with electric door.
To the rear, the gardens are laid to lawn, with a substantial terrace off the drawing room and sunroom. There is a large rose covered pergola to the right which frames the stunning view of the Parish Church, set between deep borders which are planted with a range of, shrubs, evergreens, roses, bulbs and perennials, giving a variety of colour throughout the year. There are several apple trees and an area for vegetable growing.
The property may only be inspected by prior arrangement through King West.
None of the services have been tested by the agents.
The existing primary central heating source for all the rooms is a hot water radiator system using an oil fired boiler however the property has the alternative to use, if requested, a green energy source. This green energy heating consists of a small district heating system using a wood biomass as the fuel. All the wood used is sourced locally from the adjacent farm land. The centralised furnace can provide heat for 3 properties; Manor Farm House, Peartree Barn and Bearshank House. With the rapidly changing technology, it is envisaged that the biomass furnace will be replaced within the next 10 years with energy from Ground Sourced Heat Pumps that will use the PV electric power generated on the grain store roof located to the rear of Manor Farm. Large thermal banks will store the heat generated during the day by the ground source heat pumps powered by solar PV electricity.
