About this property
Enjoy captivating panoramic countryside views at View House, a substantial refurbished family home with over 2,900 Ft2 of accommodation, poised on the edge of the Welland Valley close to the Northamptonshire and Rutland border.
Step through the side door into the hall, a handy storage cupboard and utility/boiler room are to the left. The inner lobby leads to a guest cloakroom and study, equipped with a fitted desk and cupboards, to your left.
The lobby also leads into the show-stopping open plan kitchen, family/diner. Whether it's the panoramic views through the bifold doors, or the kitchen itself that strikes you first, both will be sure to impress. Re-fitted to a high specification the contemporary units provide ample storage, and an abundance of work surface space with a walk-in pantry cupboard to the corner. Budding chefs will delight at the integrated Miele appliances, which include a double oven, steamer/ warming draw, coffee machine, teppanyaki grill, two induction hobs, gas hob, Bosch dishwasher, fridge and freezer and wine cooler. While floating stairs lead up, double, glass-paned doors lead through to the sitting room with solid oak flooring, which enjoys its own view and access on to the sun terrace. A log-burning stove flanked by two rose windows makes for the perfect focal point and source of cosy warmth during winter evenings. The lean-to sunroom can be accessed from the rear corner. The dining room is an impressive size with French doors to the rear garden, and solid oak flooring, while the family room takes advantage of the morning sun.
Upstairs the sense of space continues. The master bedroom features a walk-in dressing room, fitted wardrobes, a re-fitted ensuite bathroom with a contemporary suite as well as access on to the balcony that takes in that stunning view, and is fitted with a gas-barbecue feed and wraps around through to the guest bedroom which features a separate shower cubicle, and ensuite bathroom with corner spa bath. You will also find two further double bedrooms that enjoy views of the garden and a family bathroom with separate shower cubicle, corner bath, WC and wash hand basin. From the landing a discreet staircase leads up to the loft space which features a window at the gable ends and is currently boarded providing storage space. It also offers scope to be converted into further accommodation, subject to the necessary consents.
Park your car on the block paved driveway or in the double garage and take either the winding path through the orchard with an abundance of fruit trees and Hydrangea, or the fifty-two steps to the side. As you reach the front terrace you will first notice the space for seating, dining, or lounging, before you turn and marvel at the breathtaking views of the Welland Valley.
Gated access to the side leads through to the rear garden, where a bandstand style pergola takes centre stage in the lawn and offers covered space for dining and entertaining. A log-cabin summer house/studio sits at the top and offers flexibility of use for studio, office, gym, or garden room. Next to the log cabin sits a Hotspring Vanguard hot tub (recently serviced) under the pergola. Finally, there is a large garden shed (8ft x 10ft) providing storage space for garden equipment and garden furniture.
