    I love a house with impact and this is one of the most impactful that I have seen. Couple this with one of the best EPC ratings and this is an amazing and efficient home. The interior finish is fabulous and the position, with the views, the woodland for walks, and the setting's proximity to Stamford, Oundle, Oakham and Peterborough for schools, life and commuting, easy.
