A charming terraced cottage with an appealing double frontage, exuding significant character, nestled in the heart of this picturesque village in Northamptonshire
A beautifully presented stone built cottage synonymous with many other period homes within one of Northamptonshire’s most attractive villages. The Porch is a fine example of a period cottage with many charming features throughout, including exposed timbers, large inglenook fireplace, window seats and latched doors. The house has been cleverly extended with a refitted kitchen, a utility room and bifold doors offering a contemporary feel overlooking the garden. On the first floor there are three well-proportioned bedrooms and a refitted family bathroom with separate walk-in shower cubicle, jacuzzi, bath and high-quality tiling. The principal bedroom suite has a window to the front, built-in wardrobes and an exposed ceiling timber. Bedroom two is another double room with high quality flooring, a built-in double wardrobe and also a window to the front whilst bedroom three has a rear view and an exposed ceiling timber.
On the ground floor, behind the timber entrance door, is a small hallway with stairs rising to the first floor and timber doors that lead to the two principal reception rooms. The attractive sitting room has a timber floor and a beautiful fireplace with Northamptonshire stone surround with log burner, as well as a window seat; the perfect room to enjoy a cosy evening. Across the hall is the dining room with log burner, an array of built-in seating providing convenient storage and an under stairs storage cupboard. From here, a latched door leads to the extension with two steps up to the utility room. There are bifold doors that lead to the garden and a tiled floor that leads into the refitted kitchen, which has a variety of built-in appliances, including a built-in Neff microwave, fridge and freezer, Villeroy and Boch Belfast sink, a range master range and an extractor hood.
The rear garden has a small patio area with a stone built retaining wall and steps leading to the upper part of the garden. There is a large storage shed, raised borders, an astroturf lawn and a log store.
Location Staverton is one of Northamptonshire’s most attractive and sought-after villages, being made up of mainly period stone houses and cottages and has a highly regarded primary school, a picturesque parish church and The Countryman public house.
