A substantial Victorian 7 bedroom family home with generously proportioned rooms spread over 3 floors plus a large basement offering 3 more rooms that may be ideal for further development. The property occupies a large mature plot in a sought after and prestigious area within a short walk of the town centre and railway station. Quality homes of this style and size rarely come onto the open market and this property has been occupied by the present owners since the mid 1970's. It is an ideal location convenient in so many ways and the accommodation is perfect for a large family. There is PVC double glazing and gas central heating. The property still retains many original features and needs to be seen to be fully appreciated. NO CHAIN.

Situated within the town conservation area just a short walk from the the Alfred East art gallery, library, local museum, Parish Church and Market Square where there are a variety of pubs, restaurants and cafes. Kettering railway station which has frequent services of around one hour to London St Pancras International is located just along Station Road. Also within about a quarter of a mile there are Doctors, Dentists, Osteopaths and other professional services together with a variety of local shops and take aways in the surrounding roads. All grades of schooling and the swimming pool are close by. This is a very desirable and sought after area.
