A SLEEK, MODERN DESIGN PERFECTLY SUITED TO 21ST CENTURY LIVING
Come into the welcoming entrance hall, shrug off your coat and hang it in the cupboard in the hallway. To your left lies a handy downstairs cloakroom with luxurious underfloor heating, and to the right is the first of the reception rooms. Sink into your sofa, or curl up on an armchair in this bright and airy sitting room whilst your children enjoy themselves in the family snug next door and those contemporary, glossy storage units are a fabulous help in keeping the puzzles and games consoles tidy!

Maybe you need a space to work or study from home? Here, the well laid out study with its array of fitted shelving and cupboards will effortlessly aid you in achieving first class results!

As you move back into the hallway, you will soon find your way into the hub of the home…with smart design features creating an excellent open space, this kitchen diner with relaxed snug area is fabulous for casual meals and get-togethers with friends and family. This is the current owner's favourite room, and once you've seen it, we have no doubt it will be yours too. The underfloor heating in here is a lovely touch and makes a real difference.

Gourmet cooks will delight in showing off their skills with this superbly equipped sleek kitchen designed and fitted by 'NGI Design, Stamford' with 2 ovens, induction hob, microwave, coffee machine, fridge and dishwasher. Chic white handle-less cabinets and units make for a dramatic statement and create a stylish and contemporary look. However, if we have to be practical for a moment and remember the household chores then the laundry room just off from the kitchen has plenty of cupboards to store all the equipment and laundry appliances a busy family needs with another useful built-in fridge freezer here to take the strain for parties and family get-togethers!

The spacious dining area is flooded with light and, once open, the bi-folding patio doors will tempt you out onto the garden terrace. So, why not take the party outside and while supper is cooking make your way to the terrace that overlooks the garden and relax with a refreshing cocktail?

If we can entice you back inside, let's discover the first floor bedrooms and bathrooms. As you reach the landing, ahead are five bedrooms; the impressive master bedroom is a superb sanctuary to escape to and has its own fabulous walk-through dressing area with enough fitted wardrobes to house your summer and winter season clothes. With its cool monochrome style, the master en suite shower room has a real spa-like feel to it, so grab your fluffiest of towels and truly pamper yourself.

The second double bedroom also has its own sleek en suite shower room ideal for those visiting friends and family members. There are still three more bedrooms to discover and a luxurious family bathroom with bath, separate shower, hand basin and loo.

As you pull your car on the block-paved driveway, there is plenty of off-road parking for your family and visiting guests to use. Open the side gate and step into the rear garden where you'll find a good-sized patio area with a garden shed tucked at the side of the house and a lawn garden where the countryside and fields behind stretch away into the distance.
 

WE ASKED THE CURRENT OWNERS WHAT MAKES THIS HOUSE A HOME?
Immediately they replied, "The way it changes with the seasons; in spring it's bright and dazzling and in winter it's warm and welcoming." 

AND THIS IS WHAT WE LOVE MOST ABOUT THE HOME...
There is a generous feel of space to this sharply styled modern home with every inch carefully thought-out. The flexible living zones have been cleverly created for a growing family. 

OUT AND ABOUT:
Tucked away between Stamford and Peterborough, Helpston offers a welcoming village community with the convenience of also having the progressive city of Peterborough on your doorstep.

The village has a well-regarded state primary school 'John Clare Primary School' and is in the catchment area of the popular 'Arthur Mellows Village College' state secondary school in neighbouring Glinton just 3 miles away. Alternatively, local independent schools include 'Copthill School' for boys and girls aged between 2 and 11 years situated on 350 acres in the nearby village of Uffington and 'Stamford Endowed School' offers co-education for children aged 2 to 18 years with boarding facilities.

Helpston village is also very well supported with the Bluebell Inn, post office, general store and the garden centre on the edge of the village.

The poet John Clare lived in a Helpston for the first 40 years of his life between 1793-1831 and his cottage and garden has been restored using traditional building methods to create a centre where visitors can learn about his work and how rural people lived in the early 19th century. The centre is a regular favourite with local residents and returning visitors to the area to relax in the traditional cottage garden and for their wonderful home-cooked cakes and teas in the café. In fact, we can definitely recommend a bowl of their home-made soup followed by a big slice of delicious carrot cake! Beforehand, why not work up an appetite and try one of the many local public footpaths for exploring the open countryside and you'll soon find some wonderful routes all around for energetic walks, bike rides, bridleways or gentle evening strolls.

The Georgian market town of Stamford is situated only a few miles away where you can enjoy locally produced artisan goods, food and drink including the award-winning 'Hambleton Bakery' and all the shops and amenities you might need such as family-run butchers, chemists, opticians, doctors, dentists, vets, libraries, supermarkets, tea-shops, restaurants, antique shops, boutiques and book shops.
