The Red House at 1 Hillfield Road, Oundle is an exceptional detached family home with 5 bedrooms on the upper level (2 en-suite & 3 with generous built-in wardrobe space) plus a family bathroom. On the ground level, the outstanding features are the large open plan kitchen/diner/family room (with an outside tap) & the light airy lounge, both with access to the south-facing garden. In addition, there is a separate utility room (with an outside tap), a private study, a WC cloakroom, plus a guestroom/additional family room on the ground floor.
The attached pitched roof double garage (with fully boarded loft) gives onto 4 car parking spaces. An attached covered storage area accommodates all decorating and garden tool storage needs.
The rear garden is a great attraction for a young family, comprising 1,585 sq.ft of lawn - excluding the separate paved patio and wooden decking areas - both with direct access from the kitchen/diner and living room.
