This homely victorian mid terrace house is situated in the very sought after, leafy suburb of Abington.

The house has had extensive refurbishment with a new loft conversion, providing a full self-contained en-suite studio room. There is also a self contained Cabin in the garden, which offers a self contained ensuite space - suitable as either office space or a cosy granny annexe.

This property really is a tardis, with 4 levels - each offering lots of living opportunities for the modern family.

From the spacious, dry heated cellar on level one, currently being used as an office space with ample storage, through to level 2 with a spacious open plan lounge/diner with original ornate fireplace, leading into a bright and modern open kitchen that features a double glazed conservatory, laminate flooring, eye level cooker, double hob and plenty of storage space enclosed by the latest quiet closing doors.

2 good size bedrooms, a dressing area with a large double sliding door wardrobe and a decent size bathroom can be found on level 3. Leading up a bright light staircase, from the landing is level 4. 

Lock yourself away into the peace and tranquility of the Studio Room. Light and airy, you can be completely self sufficient here. 2 Velux windows in the ceiling floods the room with light, and by night a star studded view from your bed.

A kitchenette in the open plan diner/lounge/bedroom area means you can be self-sufficient and the very modern shower room with w.c allows you your own private washing space.

Access is straight up the 2 flights of stairs from the front door, and the door to the Studio Room has a lock for privacy and security. 

Both the Studio Room and the Cabin have been used very successfully by the current owner for Airbnb, to bring in extra income.

 Access to the private garden is through the upvc door via the dining room or the conservatory off of the kitchen.

Fenced all round for privacy, the partially walled garden has been established by the current owner with modern stone paving, artificial grass, flower beds and tropical palm trees! 

Access alongside the house also offers a modern stone paved area which is the perfect area for bbq's with added storage space - perfect log storage when making a fire during those cold winter nights.

The Cabin is located at the rear of the garden with access through double doors at the front of the Cabin. There is an area outside of the Cabin which offers a secluded sitting area, screened off by a privacy screen. 

The second patio area between the house and the Cabin is a good size. The sun is in the garden for the whole day and all 3 patio areas offer good sun traps at different times of the day.

The area in front of the screen is large enough to house a hot tub, as well as utilising the space for a rotary washing line.

The easy access to the garden from the house lends itself to being a great space during the summer. The current owner has enjoyed lots of dinner parties, bbq's and summer parties in the garden throughout their 14 years of living here. 

Being a property built in the late 1800s, the house is lovely and cool during the hot summer days, and with an efficient combi boiler system feeding many radiators throughout the property, the house is warm and cosy during the winter - with lashings of hot water at anytime of the day or night.

The neighbours in the street are a very friendly bunch with a great sense of community spirit. Having become good friends, some of them have been living in the street for over 40 years - a good sign of a safe place to live. 

Local Area

The property is located in the ideal place for local schools, supermarkets and the bus routes run just along the bottom of the road.

The neighbourhood has a busy friendly atmosphere. The local pub is literally a few doors away and they serve good food, have a beer garden as well as showing Sport on various screens. They also sometimes have live bands on.

The 117 acres of Abington Park is just across the road and gorgeous at all times of the year. There are 2 lakes and a park cafe where you can bask in the sun whilst you enjoy an early morning coffee (sun not guaranteed!).

With an extensive play area, and a bandstand for music during the summer, all ages are entertained throughout the year.

There are plenty of local cosmopolitan shops for you to peruse - Tesco Express a few doors away, and the Wellingborough Road with its wide variety of Cafes, Takeaways, Clothes shops, Restaurants and Pubs.

Northants Cricket Ground is also located at the end of the street for any sports enthusiasts.

Abington is a lovely place for any age group to live - whether you are raising a young family, have teenagers or just want somewhere safe and easy to live. Rest assured, you have found the right place.

What the owner has to say...

I have lived here for over 14 years and can honestly say they have been some of the happiest times of my life. The house has a lovely feel to it. It's a bright, airy house (thanks to the high ceilings and large bay windows) and everyone who is invited says what a lovely homely feeling it has about it.

I have raised a family here, originally choosing the location for the local Northampton Boys School and when my children were toddlers, the location of the park.

The house has gone above and beyond my wildest expectations. I have loved the summers here - spending most of the time in the garden, basking up the sun, sitting in the hot tub and chatting to the neighbours over the fence. The park has been amazing and we have spent many hours having picnics in the park, breakfast in the cafe or just listening to the band play in the bandstand on a balmy summer afternoon.

Winters are really cosy in the house. The heating keeps the house warm but on those really cold nights it's great to set the wood and coal in the fireplace and sit round toasting marshmallows. The lounge is very cosy at night, with just the fire and the candles glowing. The original floorboards are amazingly warm to walk on too.

Having the loft and the cabin installed has added another exciting dimension to the property, along with another income stream. I have really enjoyed being an Airbnb host to many of the international guests who have stayed with me. The layout of both ensure that your privacy is maintained.
