Castle Road, Wellingborough


An individual 5 bedroom detached character house enjoying a convenient location within walking distance of the theatre, town centre and railway station (London St Pancras in around 55 minutes from Wellingborough railway station). The property is also within a few minutes walk of Wellingborough School, Wrenn Secondary and All Saints Church of England Primary School.

The property occupies a total plot of around 0.20 acre (0.08 hectare) with lovely gardens to the front, side and rear. There is ample parking and a detached double garage. The property has a date stone of 1927 and is built in a Tudor-Revival style. The house retains an array of period architectural features typical of quality homes of the era including oak doors, exposed oak timbers, inglenook fireplace, leaded-light windows, oak flooring and impressive staircases.

The accommodation is arranged over 3 floors. The ground floor includes a large reception hall, large living room with inglenook, separate dining room, modern fitted kitchen/breakfast room, downstairs toilet, utility area and boot room. The first floor has a spacious landing, 4 good bedrooms, en suite shower room/WC, family bathroom and separate toilet. The second floor offers a further bedroom making 5 bedrooms in total. There is also a very large attic area with window offering good storage space.

Whilst the house is in a town location it does enjoy a very private garden and has a pleasant outlook with the old stone Cemetery Lodge property opposite. The rear upper rooms have good views across the town rooftops whilst the front and side rooms look across the front and side gardens towards the cemetery.

In our view this is a very special house and we would strongly recommend viewing.
