Property Summary

A traditional terrace home built in Bedfordshire red brick, with some charming authentic features and an extensive rear garden backing onto open fields.

Located on a quiet cul-de-sac, the property is within easy reach of many local amenities including two good schools and regular bus services to nearby Wellingborough and Northampton.

Location
Francis Street is on the western edge of the Northamptonshire market town of Raunds in the Nene Valley. Properties along the road back onto open fields with the Raunds Pocket Park also just a little to the east. The thriving community boasts a host of amenities, including a large Co-op supermarket, a hardware and pet store, a selection of takeaways, a fish-and-chip shop, an off-licence, a chemists, library and post office. Local watering holes include the George and Dragon and The Woodpecker. Both the Windmill Primary School and the Manor School Sports College were both rated as “good” at their last Ofsted inspections in 2015 and 2016 respectively. Regular bus services to the town centre and to Wellingborough and Northampton stop regularly on Stanwick Road, approx 100 yards from the house.

Exterior
A low, brick wall separates the front garden from the road with a short path to the covered porch. An extensive, enclosed rear garden - accessed via a door from the kitchen – includes a concrete courtyard and patio area as well as a lawn with a flagstone path to one side, running down to the painted timber shed. There are flower beds lined with wood chippings with head-high wood-panel fencing offering some privacy from neighbouring properties.

Interior
The front door opens onto a reception hall, with stairs ahead and a glass-panelled wooden door opening onto the living room/dining room. Carpeted throughout and joined through a wide arch, the rooms include wooden skirting boards, coving around the ceilings and decorative chandelier-style light fittings. A bay window overlooks the front of the property while the living room also includes a wall-mounted radiator and TV point. However, the eye is drawn to an authentic, marble-effect feature fireplace with stone-tiled hearth, with decorative heat-resistant tiles framing a cast-iron surround.

A second glass-panelled door leads to the modern fitted kitchen equipped with tile effect flooring and slatted wooden wall and base units above and below rolled work tops in grey. Stone-effect splashback tiles are fitted above all the cooking and preparation surfaces while the design incorporates an eye-level electric oven and grill, a four-ring induction hob beneath an extractor and a sink with chrome mixer tap located beneath a window overlooking the rear garden.

The stairs to the first floor lead to a landing with solid wood doors opening onto the two carpeted double bedrooms. Both are fitted with wall-mounted radiators while the master also has fittings for a wall-mounted flat-screen TV.

The house bathroom has wood effect flooring; a pedestal sink with separate hot and cold taps; a WC; a white panel bath with chrome shower attachment; and a fully-tiled separate shower cubicle with sliding glass doors.

Double-glazed and with low-energy lighting fitted in all fixed points, the property is equipped with a programmable, gas-fired central heating system with thermostat and individual controls on all radiators.
