Introduction: 28 Hillfield Road, Oundle, is a 4 bedroom detached house in a desirable street in the ancient market town of Oundle.
The market square is within easy walking distance (15 to 20 minutes, 0.8 miles).
The house sits in a prominent corner position, with easy access to the green.

Details of the house are as follows:

Kitchen Diner: 5.82m x 5.28m (19'1" x 17'4") This large and light L-shaped room was completely refurbished in 2010, when it was made open plan. The work included the installation of an all-new kitchen. There is a Rangemaster range cooker and matching stainless hood. There is a built-in dishwasher, fridge and freezer, and space for a washing machine. The units have solid oak doors, with soft close doors and drawers. There is a Karndean-style floor, sixteen LED spotlights in the ceiling, and a large glass opening overlooking the garden, with double doors and glass side panels. There is room for a large dining table- the current owners have a 7x4 foot table which can seat 10 comfortably, and there is room for a longer table if required. There is also a breakfast bar which can easily accomodate three stools. 

All the built-in appliances, including the range cooker, are included in the sale. 

Sitting Room: 5.03m x 3.33m (16'6" x 10'11") This is a well-proportioned room which has a large bay window at one end, and a pair of large glass doors at the other which open onto the garden. There is a working open fireplace which the current owners use regularly, and the chimney has recently been swept. The current owners have built a window seat in the bay window. Hidden inside is a large 55" TV which is on a remote controlled motorised lifter. The window seat and TV (including the lifting mechanism) can be sold with the house if desired. There are plenty of plug sockets around the room, and there is a double dimmer switch for the ceiling lights. 

Study: 2.46m x 1.60m (8'1" x 5'3") The study has a very interesting angled 12 foot tall ceiling, giving a very airy feel to the room. There is a large arch-shaped window letting in lots of light from the south, making the room delightful to work in. There is plenty of shelving going right up to the ceiling, and plenty of room for a large desk and a filing cabinet. 

Entrance Hall: The entrance hall has thermostat controls for the central heating, a mains powered smoke alarm, and a large understair area for storage. There is also a built-in storage cupboard in the hall area, with plenty of space for the vacuum cleaner and ironing board, as well as a number of coats. 

Downstairs lavatory: 1.55m x 1.07m (5'1" x 3'6") This comprises a lavatory and a wash basin. 

All of the downstairs of the house, except the kitchen, is boarded with wood-effect laminate floorboarding.

Master bedroom: 3.70m x 3.19m (11'2" x 10'6") This room looks over the garden, and currently has a super-king size bed in it. There is also room for a chest of drawers and a bedside table. There is a large 5-door built in wardrobe. There are plenty of power sockets around the bed.

Ensuite bathroom:  1.98m x 2.16m (6'6" x 7'1") This good-sized room includes a lavatory, a wash basin, and an enclosed shower, with excellent water-pressure. 

Bedroom 2: 3.37m x2.77m (11' x 9'1") This room overlooks the garden and the green. It currently holds a king-sized bed, a bedside table, a chest of drawers, a large wardrobe and a floorstanding shelving unit. 

Bedroom 3: 3.19m x 2.16m (10'6" x 7'1") This room overlooks the garden. It is big enough to hold a standard double bed or two standard singles, along with various other pieces of furniture. Currently it is being used as a nursery room, comprising a large cot, an armchair, a wardrobe and a chest of drawers. There is a dimmer switch for the ceiling light, and plenty of electrical sockets around the room.

Bedroom 4: 2.48m x 2.22m (8'2" x 7'3") This south-facing room is a single bedroom, which provides enough room for a single bed, a large desk, a shelving unit, and a bedside table. There are also two sockets and a radiator.

Family Bathroom: 3.13m x1.73m (10'3" x 5'8") A very good-sized room, with lavatory, wash basin, and bath. There is a shower above the bath, with a glass screen. 

Airing cupboard with water storage tank: A shelved cupboard with plenty of space for clothes. Controls for the central heating and the boiler are located in here. 

All of the upstairs of the house, other than the bathrooms, is carpeted. All carpets are included in the sale. 

Loft: There is a large loft. About half of it is currently boarded, providing plenty of storage space. The remainder is covered in thick loft insulation. There is a loft ladder installed above the loft hatch on the landing. The TV aerial is also located inside the loft, along with a signal amplifier and a loft light. 

Central Heating: There is a conventional gas boiler (located in a cupboard in the kitchen). The hot water tank is in the airing cupboard. There are radiators in every room. Hot water is at mains pressure. All radiators have thermostatic valves.

Garage and parking: There is a double garage with two up-and over doors. There is plenty of storage space in the eaves. There is power and light, and venting for a tumble drier. There is also a waterproof electrical socket on the outside of the garage, allowing electrical devices to be used in the garden. The driveway is large enough to park three cars comfortably side by side, allowing full door opening between vehicles. There is additional parking in the back garden should the need ever arise. The current owners have three vehicles (and so did the previous owners), and park all of them on the driveway. 

Garden:  The garden is a good size (one of the biggest on the street) and is not closely overlooked. The garden lies to the rear and side of the house. There is vehicular access to the garden via a 3m wide double gate and dropped kerb. There is a raised vegetable garden, but most of the garden is lawn and patio. Much of the fencing was new this year. There is an outdoor electrical socket on the garage wall, and a water tap on the kitchen wall. 

Other points to note: 

  • The house is in very good general condition, with everything working as it should. The sitting room, and the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms were painted recently, and the two bathrooms and downstairs loo have just been painted. The other rooms are in good condition. The kitchen was built in 2010 and is in very good condition. The boiler is 17 years old but had a new ECU around two years ago and works perfectly. All the electrics work perfectly. The carpets in the bedrooms are a little tired. 
  • The house gets good internet access, with speeds of up to 76mbps. There is also good mobile phone reception and 3G in the house
  • There is mains gas, electricity, water, and drainage. 
  • The house is in council tax band D. 
  • There is currently an EPC rating of band D, with the potential to get to C.
  • The neighbourhood is exteremly friendly with lovely neighbours (nearly all of whom have been in the street for many years).
  • The current owners pay about £55 per month for gas and electricity combined. 
  • The current owners had a Homebuyer's Report done on the property in June 2015. Any prospective buyer is welcome to view this report if they would like to. 
  • The current owners hold valid planning permission for a downstairs single storey extension, which would enlarge the kitchen, add a downstairs double bedroom and ensuite bathroom, and create a walk-through utility area to the garage. The plans and planning permission for this will be transferred to the new owner.
  • The garden was recently enlarged onto the grass verge which belongs to the property, but which was previously separated from the garden by a wall. Planning permission was granted for this modification.
