Full Details

Set in the small Northamptonshire village of Piddington and the parish of Hackleton is this detached four-bedroom family home. Within less than a mile is the 'Outstanding' Hackleton primary school, and the recreation ground in the village is soon to have the addition of an outdoor gym. The magnificent Salcey Forest and Castle Ashby are both nearby, as well as an array of field and countryside walks on the doorstep. Pitstops are available at the Coffee at Carey café or The Spread Eagle pub.

Smith Close is a "fantastic place to live", where the friendly residents have a group WhatsApp and host street gatherings. As a quiet no-through road, and with Piddington a peaceful no-through village, there's real seclusion in the immediate and more general areas. While the location is rural, large centres such as Northampton and Milton Keynes are both within a short drive, each with a well-connected railway station, and Junction 15 of the M1 is 5 miles away.

The owner has updated various elements of the home, notably installing a new combi boiler in 2021. The dual-aspect kitchen/breakfast room to the right of the property has been recently refitted in a range of white units, wood-style worktops, attractive honeycomb tiling, and wood-style flooring. There's a sleek ceramic sink and drainer, an integrated Siemens oven, a gas hob with an extractor over, and space for further appliances.
The adjoining utility room has just been finished, refitted in a range of modern light grey units and quartz-style worktops with an inset Franke sink.

Along with LED bulbs in all light fittings throughout the house, the owner has "tried to be eco-friendly" in incorporating a pulley ceiling airer in the utility for reduced tumble dryer use, as well as handy separation of laundry from the living space. There's lots of cupboard space to the kitchen and utility, plus a storage cupboard by the back door, a pantry cupboard in the kitchen, and a "Christmas stuff" cupboard over the stairs on the landing.
Across the hall to the left of the ground floor is the lounge, a spacious dual aspect room with lots of sunlight coming in through the front window and the French doors to the rear. Completing the ground floor is the shower room-a convenient advantage for those busy mornings when everyone's getting ready.


On the first floor are four bedrooms and a bathroom. Bedrooms two and three are similar-sized doubles, and bedroom four is a single that could be utilised as a home office (especially as the property has superfast fibre). The master benefits from a full wall of wardrobes, recently added by the owner and with useful lighting. To the opposite side is a wide, deep, full-height cupboard with the capacity to create a walk-in wardrobe. The fully tiled bathroom comprises a contemporary three-piece suite of WC, sink, and P-shaped bath with side-mounted taps, glass screen and electric Mira shower.

Outside, the entryway and multi-car driveway to the front have been very newly gravelled. There's also a garage for off-road parking or all-purpose storage. To the rear, from the French doors in the lounge and the door from the utility is the newly laid patio-a great spot for seating. To the side is a sizeable covered pergola-a great spot for seating when there may be rain, with outdoor dining made all the more private by pulling up the barn-style gate. There's also a neat lawn with planted borders, including apple and pear trees. A raised area next to the garage currently houses a shed but could make an extra seating area, or a place to put a swing set or slide for young families.
