A beautifully presented residence built in 2014 and set within the charming hamlet of Water Newton, just 8 miles from Stamford and 4 miles from the Cathedral City of Peterborough.

The property offers very spacious, flexible accommodation arranged over three floors and occupies a delightful plot with walled gardens, stone outbuilding, detached double garage and large shingle driveway.

Ground Floor
A welcoming entrance hall provides access to the main reception rooms and has underfloor heating that runs throughout the ground floor accommodation. To the left is the sitting room and snug, and to the right a formal dining room, study and fabulous kitchen dining room with mezzanine area.

The dual aspect sitting room has oak flooring and sliding sash windows to the front elevation while French doors allow access to a stone terrace and the garden beyond. An open chimney breast is currently used as a feature but could house an open fire or a wood burning stove if required. Next door is a snug with triple aspect windows, oak flooring and French doors offering views over the lovely private garden. The dining room has double oak doors and provides a perfect space for formal entertaining. The study is next door, just off the kitchen with views to the side of the property.

The kitchen is a wonderful room offering a range of oak painted cabinets under Silestone work surfaces. A range cooker is complemented by a matching extractor hood, along with an intergraded dishwasher, refrigerator and wine chiller. There is a large island providing an excellent preparation island and a fitted oak table gives an ideal place for casual dining and entertaining. The room is partially vaulted with an oak staircase leading to a terrific mezzanine area. A bank of bi fold doors open onto a large stone terrace area bringing the outside in and flooding the room with natural light.

From the kitchen, a large utility/boot room has an excellent range of cabinets plus space for white goods.

Oak stairs rise to the first floor where three en suite bedrooms can be found. The principle bedroom has a dressing room with in built wardrobes offering both hanging and shelving solutions. The large en suite is fully tiled and has a good size shower, WC and vanity sink with storage beneath.

The guest bedroom is currently dressed as a twin room and has a dressing area with extensive storage and a large en suite bathroom with paneled bath, separate shower, WC and vanity wash hand basin.

The property sits behind a stone wall with a large shingle driveway terminating at a detached double garage. The large walled garden is completely private and has two large terrace areas providing excellent options for alfresco dining or outside entertaining. There is a large stable/outbuilding currently used for garden storage, however this might be used as an office or studio if required.

The attractive Conservation Village of Water Newton has a collection of largely stone houses and lies close to the River Nene to the west of Peterborough. The village is bypassed by the A1 and is approximately 2 miles north of Alwalton village, which has a pub, post office and village shop.

A footbridge over the River Nene, and public footpath provides an attractive rural walk through fields to the villages of Ailsworth and Castor with their public house restaurants, village shop and facilities.

The Georgian market towns of Oundle and Stamford, and the Cathedral City of Peterborough, provide a good range of shopping, services and leisure facilities. The area is well served by public and state schools. The catchment primary is Elton Church of England Primary, to which there is currently a daily school bus service from the village.
