A charming thatched cottage, Listed Grade II, of surprising proportions, enjoying a south-facing garden, set in the heart of this desirable and historic village with good access to Oundle, Stamford and Peterborough
The Property: Constructed in stone beneath a thatched roof, this charming, refurbished cottage is Listed Grade II. Thought to date from as early as the 15th Century the cottage boasts many original features, including exposed beams and magnificent fireplaces.
Over the years, the property has been carefully and sympathetically restored using traditional materials and methods. The internal joinery is exquisite with a wealth of oak used throughout the house. The doors are hand crafted, ledged and braced, with traditional strap hinges and latches. Oak panelling has been re-instated in the hall and dining room. The floors throughout are either oak boards or Fired Earth slate. Oil fired central heating has been installed with many traditional column radiators. The rooms within are all a good size.
The hall has a studded oak door from the street. There is access to the reception rooms and the kitchen.
The sitting room is wonderfully spacious and has a stone fireplace, with wood burner, to one end. The oak floor adds a feeling of warmth. There are windows, one with a seat beneath, to the front and to the garden.
The dining room is atmospheric with oak panelling and a beautiful Listed fireplace. The window has an oak sill and a seat beneath. Bespoke cupboards re fitted to one wall.
From the dining room there is a cloakroom / utility
fitted with WC and wash basin, which also has space for a washing machine and tumble dryer.
The kitchen has plenty of space for family life and is well equipped with bespoke furniture with granite work-surfaces and inset Belfast sink. There is space for daily dining. Doors open to the garden and to the conservatory which is a quality addition to the cottage.
On the first floor there are three double bedrooms and a bathroom.
The main bedroom has views over the garden towards the river. The room is sufficiently large to enable it to be split into two reasonable rooms if desired.
The second bedroom has a beautiful stone fireplace and similar views as the main bedroom.
The third bedroom is a comfortable double room and also looks over the garden.
The bathroom is traditionally styled with a double ended roll top bath, wash basin on a stand, high flush WC, and tiled shower cubicle.
The South-facing garden has been professionally designed and landscaped. There is a stone terrace with space for dining. Steps lead up passed some espaliered fruit trees, to the path that reaches the pergola which is set to one side, adjacent to a large fig tree. Across the lawn are other productive fruit trees. The shaped lawn is surrounded by well-stocked shrub and flower borders. A second terrace is set to capture the afternoon and evening sunshine, whilst affording a great view of the magnificent church of St Mary. A stone barn provides useful storage and offers potential, perhaps for a home office.
