Live the dream in a magnificent open-plan home

The desirable Northamptonshire village of Great Oakley is the location for a large open-plan house which has all the ingredients of a dream home.

9 Home Close, Great Oakley is offered for sale via conditional online auction by SDL Auctions in partnership with Right1 Property Agents with a starting price of £650,000, ending on Monday 15 April.

The spacious five bedroomed detached home has a palatial open-plan ground floor, encompassing a superb dining kitchen with central island and a full range of integrated appliances, living room and family space with a bar. At the centre of this impressive space is a fireplace with a multi-fuel stove and feature chimney.

In addition, separate ground floor rooms include a utility room, two bedrooms, the larger of the two having doors onto the patio and being next to a shower room, providing the opportunity, should the need arise, to create a self-contained annexe, subject to planning permission.

Rising up from the imposing reception area and up through the kitchen is a magnificent solid ash staircase which leads to the first-floor landing, which has sliding patio doors onto the extensive 53ft by 15ft balcony.

There are three further bedrooms, including a particularly impressive master bedroom suite which has a dressing area and an en suite with a bath and separate shower cubicle.

Of the two other bedrooms on the first floor, one has an en suite shower room and the other has access, via patio doors, onto the balcony.

Jason Lee, national sales manager at SDL Auctions, said: “Imagine being able to step out from your bedroom in the morning to drink your first coffee of the day on a beautiful sun terrace. We really are in dream home territory here, as it is genuinely luxurious, with top quality fittings and stand-out features such as the amazing open-plan living space with its centrepiece stove, and of course that magnificent solid wood staircase.”

Outside the property is just as impressive, with a large private plot providing parking for several vehicles, a double garage with workshop space and an extensive private rear garden which includes expansive lawns, a play area, a converted tennis court area, summer house and koi pond.

Jason added: “This is the sort of garden which really befits a property of this size and quality, with some exciting features such as wooded areas, a koi carp pond and summer house. And you can survey it all from that wonderful balcony.”

The house is tucked away in a cul-de-sac of executive homes in the popular village of Great Oakley, two miles south-west of Corby town centre. One of the village’s most notable landmarks is Great Oakley Hall, home of the de Capell Brooke family since 1575. Within the grounds of the hall sits St Michael and All Angels Church and next to this are Oakley Park, Great Oakley Cricket Club and the local village hall, just a short stroll from the property. The village also has a medical centre, supermarkets, pubs and there are several schools nearby.

Corby has a great range of shopping, restaurants and leisure facilities, including a swimming pool, sports hall and boating lake, as well as a railway station running services to London St Pancras.

Road links are excellent too, with Kettering, Northampton, Milton Keynes, Rugby, Peterborough and Leicester all within an hour’s drive of Great Oakley and good access to the motorway network.
