About this property

  • In an accessible rural village setting, Graeme House is an attractive family home within which there is a fabulously versatile accommodation layout with well-proportioned accommodation and retained period features.

    The front door opens into an entrance stairwell hallway which is flanked by three of the reception rooms, a family shower room and the kitchen.

    The sitting room is an impressive triple aspect room with French doors opening to the gardens, and a wood burning stove within a large brick chimney breast. The dining room and living rooms overlook the front forecourt garden and are pleasant symmetrical reception rooms.

    The kitchen is a large ceramic tile floored room with a fitted oak fronted suite arranged around a stainless steel gas double oven range cooker. The kitchen is open to an large adjoining breakfast room, from which two sets of French Doors open to the sunken terrace. Alongside the kitchen, and with a secondary external door to the front driveway, a large utility room has plumbing for white goods and houses the central heating boiler.

    At first floor, the six bedrooms are all generous doubles, each with an attractive outlook over the garden or across the village's lane. The principal bedroom has an en suite shower room, WC and fitted wardrobes, whilst a central landing games/play room provides access to the guest bedroom and bedroom three, from which external steps descend to the upper garden. Bedrooms two to six are served by the family bathroom, along side which is a secondary WC.

    The garden lies to the east and to the side and rear of the house and its garage. Largely walled, the gardens are lawned with a backdrop to woodland, which is also owned (upon which there will be a title covenant). As such, the gardens have a high degree of privacy, are perfectly orientated for the day's sunshine and have a vibrant and interesting backdrop. They are also fabulous for entertaining with upper and lower terraces, the lower terrace adjoining the house, with access to the hallway and breakfast room.

    The tarmacadam driveway adjoins the house, passing along its gable end to a turning sweep and the double garage block to the rear of the house.

This is a fabulous property; I was immediately struck by the large square footage and a malleable layout, the gardens are delightful and include a woodland. I was impressed by the very generous parking and garaging. All in all, a great position for access to Peterborough, Stamford or Oundle.
