A charming detached stone house, centrally positioned off Oundle's Market Place with gated driveway and private garden.
ABOUT 21 OSYTHS LANE
This Grade II listed detached stone house is dated 1637. With an oversized ground floor layout, it retains a high degree of charm and many period features, including high beamed ceilings, wide inglenook fireplaces and exposed timbers, coupled with large and symmetrical principal rooms and a southerly aspect garden.
The entrance hallway opens into the sitting room with an impressive inglenook with gas fired stove, wide window seat and exterior door. The kitchen/breakfast room is the full width of the house and has an extensive suite with room for daily dining. An inner staircase hall links to the dining room, with another inglenook with gas-fired stove, beyond which, double doors enter the drawing room. This symmetrical room was until recently an office for a number of people and, with the rear hall's garden access and utility, has also been an annex.
A first floor galleried landing accesses two double bedrooms (one en suite) and a well-appointed family bathroom, whilst a turning staircase rises to attic bedroom three.
Electric double gates off East Road, provide vehicular access to a gravelled turning sweep and to the double cart shed store within the walled garden. With shrub and flowering beds and a stone terrace adjoining the house, the garden offers privacy and parking in this central town setting.

I was really taken by the character and proportions of this charming period house coupled with its central town position and proximity to the market square, local schools and countryside.Jessie Heath
