Six Bedroom Detached House For Sale In Lower Boddington.
WOW! was my immediate reaction when I first got to view this immaculately presented, astonishingly spacious, six ‘double bedroom’ property. Without a doubt this fabulous property has everything you need and more. It is a fully functioning, ready-to-go perfect property for modern living.
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION The Old Orchard can be found in a quiet cul-de-sac of just three detached houses, set back from the road in the sought-after village of Lower Boddington.
This lovely home overlooks open countryside at the rear and offers truly versatile accommodation in a very peaceful setting.
Whilst Lower Boddington is ‘officially’ a Northamptonshire village, the county boundaries of both Oxfordshire and Warwickshire are within walking distance, so it genuinely is situated in ‘The Heart Of The Shires’.
COOK, EAT, WORK, RELAX On entering the hallway, you get an immediate sense of light and space and well thought-out room proportions. There is not a room in this property that is not adequate for its function.
The hallway itself is light and will lead through to the wonderful kitchen/diner and also two of three reception rooms.
The kitchen/diner is spectacular, with double bi-fold doors recently installed that open out on to the patio and the gorgeous rear garden. The dining space provides plenty of room for large family gatherings or dinners with friends, whilst just off the kitchen is a very handy utility room.
The overriding theme of The Old Orchard is ‘space’ and the sitting room ‘ticks that particular box’. The current owners have also installed bi-fold doors to this room and consequently it benefits from lots of natural daylight whilst also facilitating a lovely outlook over the garden and adjoining open fields beyond.
In addition, there is a log burner that sits in one corner of the sitting room to create a warm and cosy place to relax throughout the winter months.
A door at the rear of the sitting room takes you through to a great sized ‘boot room’ with an abundance of space to hang coats, store boots and – if you are a dog owner – provides a great place to hang the leads and keep all the other essential dog accessories. You will also find a very convenient WC adjacent to the ‘Boot Room’.
There are two further reception rooms on the ground floor and it will very much depend on your particular needs as to how you make use of them. The larger of the two is currently used as a music room and home gym and the smaller one an embroidery room. They could just as easily be used as an additional sitting room, playroom or home office – the choices are endless.
GUEST; RELATIVE; LODGER To complete the array of options that The Old Orchard has to offer is a fabulous Annexe, boasting a large double bedroom; kitchenette and shower room.
It has its own door that opens immediately to the outside, so should you wish to ‘let it’ or use as an Airbnb guests could stay here quite happily without disturbing you.
Alternatively, what a brilliant place to accommodate friends that are visiting or maybe a home for an aged relative or an older child.
AND SO TO BED With all that space downstairs, it naturally follows that there will be more of the same upstairs – and there certainly is.
Five double bedrooms, two en-suites and a family bathroom to be precise.
The main bedroom is located at the back of the house with views over the garden and open countryside. It is complemented by a shower room with a large walk-in shower and fitted wardrobes.
Access to bedroom three is via bedroom two and whilst some people may see this as a negative, there are some clear advantages to this arrangement – depending on your circumstances and requirements. For instance, if you do not need five double bedrooms you could create a fantastic ‘suite’ with bedroom, shower room and private lounge.
Alternatively, if you have grown up children and grandchildren, what a great place for them to use when staying with you.
Bedrooms four and five can be found at the front of the house and are very generous sized doubles, whilst the family bathroom comprises a panelled bath with shower over, a low-level WC and hand basin integrated into a vanity unit.
KERB APPEAL AND SUMER LIVING The Old Orchard is set back from the road and the driveway to the front of the house offers plenty of room to park as many as six cars very comfortably. In addition, there is a great size double garage with power and lighting fitted.
The current owners have made a wonderful job of the rear garden in the time that they have lived here. They have created a number of seating areas so that you can follow the sun throughout the day whilst there are an abundance of plants and flowers that are clearly very well tended and cared for.
The patio area provides a great space for al fresco dining and socialising in the summer months – it really is idyllic.
VILLAGE LIFE Lower Boddington is the smaller of two villages (Upper being the larger) that make up the parish of Boddington.
Lower Boddington is surrounded by beautiful countryside and is an exceptionally quiet and peaceful place to live. There are numerous bridleways and country walks to be found and if a canal-side walk appeals, then you will discover that on the road from Lower Boddington to Claydon.
The Carpenters Arms is a Hook Norton pub that has stood in the village for over a century and is at the heart of the village community.
A gentle stroll or short drive up Church Road will take you to Upper Boddington where you will find the local primary school; the C of E Church; the Plough Inn and the Village Hall.
The Village Hall offers a variety of activities for young and old and is the venue for many village social events throughout the year. It sits within the confines of the ‘Cowper’ field which is available for all to use and provides an adventure playground and recently installed bicycle track for children.
Lower Boddington sits equidistance between the market towns of Daventry and Banbury, whilst Leamington Spa, Warwick, Stratford-Upon-Avon and Oxford are all in close proximity.
Whilst I hope all of the above has provided you with a useful indication of all that The Old Orchard and Lower Boddington has to offer, to fully appreciate this exceptional property please call the friendly team at Campbells to book your viewing.
