Property description

A rarely available stone and brick built detached bungalow positioned in a cul-de-sac location in this desirable village and only a short distance from the popular Pitsford reservoir. Built in 1983, the five properties comprising ‘Farm Close’ are in situ of a former farm yard. This property was partly constructed using the stone from the farm buildings to retain the historic character. The full accommodation comprises entrance hall, WC, sitting room with French doors to the dining room, fitted kitchen, utility room and wet room (added in an extension of 2006), sun room with doors leading to the south facing rear garden, three bedrooms with bedrooms one and two offering built in wardrobes, and a family bathroom. Outside, the low maintenance rear garden is paved and offers a good degree of privacy. To the front there is a lawn area and driveway which leads to a double garage which has power and light connected. The bungalow benefits from gas radiator central heating, UPVC double glazing (where specified, with tip and tilt windows in the bedrooms), and a burglar alarm system. Jackson Grundy recommend an early viewing due to the rare availability of this type of property in this lovely village. EPC: D


Local area information


Known on its local website as the 'centre of the universe', Holcot village is focussed on community spirit and social activity with more than a dozen local groups utilising the village hall, public house and church and several more using the tennis club and cricket ground. Its position between the A508 and A43 main roads allows for excellent transportation links with both of the aforementioned roads connecting to the A14 and in turn the M1 and M6 motorways at Catthorpe Interchange. For public transport, a regular bus service operates between the towns of Northampton (8 miles) and Kettering (9 miles), both of which operate mainline rail services to London as well as offering a range of high street shopping, medical and leisure facilities. There are also a number of educational options within these towns though the nearest provisions are Walgrave primary school and Moulton secondary school.
