About this property

  • A south-east facing detached house constructed with Clipsham stone elevations, the Holmes Drive cul-de-sac properties were constructed in 2001 by Allison Homes.

    This modern house offers symmetrical principal rooms, coupled with a secluded garden, a gated driveway with parking for several cars and a double garage.

    The Accommodation
    The wide wooden floored entrance hallway accesses a full-width dual-aspect sitting room, which has a gas fire within a stone fireplace, a central dining room, with double doors from the hallway and French doors that open to the garden's terrace, a cloakroom and a study, with a fitted home office suite.

    The spacious kitchen is dual-aspect too, and has ample space for dining as well as food preparation. The fitted Shaker style suite has integrated appliances, whilst there are French doors that open to the garden for al fresco dining. The adjoining utility has a side door to the driveway and garage.

    On the first floor there are four double bedrooms (one en suite) and a full-suite family bathroom. The principal bedroom suite has space for a dressing area, fitted wardrobe and a spacious en suite bathroom

    The front door is approached through a pretty, walled and lawned front forecourt garden. The gated driveway, to the east of the house, offers parking for a number of vehicles and access to the detached double garage. The rear garden is enclosed and lawned, with a terrace adjoining the house with access to the dining room and kitchen.

This attractive house is positioned in a discreet position on the edge of this popular Conservation Village. A modern house, with home office, parking for several vehicles and double garage, Ketton is popular, in part, due to the variety of schools that have bus services from it, including currently Stamford, Witham Hall, Kings (Peterborough) and Oakham (among others). The village is also convenient for commuters, 16 miles from Peterborough railway station.
