Approached to the front via a five bar gate, the south facing gardens to the rear have been beautifully maintained and are completely private, and there is even a stone built outbuilding which would make an ideal home office for those wishing to work from home away from the main house. The market town of Towcester, with its many historic buildings and independent shops, is just 5 miles away. Oakbeams really is the quintessential country cottage.

Oakbeams not only has five reception rooms but each one has its own unique character. The sitting room has a wonderful brick fireplace with an inset log burning stove making it cosy and inviting for those winter evenings, while the garden room is light and airy with limestone flooring, perfect for summer entertaining. The second sitting room has a spectacular inglenook fireplace, and the study, like all the reception rooms, has dual aspect windows and an abundance of beams. When not entertaining in the garden room there is a lovely dining room with flagstone flooring adjacent to the kitchen. The kitchen is a really special feature of this property having been fitted with a bespoke range of units, oak flooring, a central island and many integrated appliances, this room has been finished to a superb standard and perfectly creates the hub of this family home.
On the first floor there are four bedrooms. The two en suite shower rooms and the family bathroom are all fitted with well appointed modern suites and the luxurious family bathroom also has a freestanding ball and claw footed bath, panelled walls and marble flooring. The master bedroom and bedroom two both have dressing areas.
The garden is simply delightful. A feeling of tranquility and peace is evident as soon as you step outside and although mainly lawned there is a pretty pond as well as patio areas to sit and take in the sounds of the countryside.
At the side, there is space to build a garage or create additional parking. The driveway has been landscaped to create a gated entrance but could be cleared to facilitate the parking of three or more cars.
The Northamptonshire village of Hartwell is just a 5 minute walk from Salcey Forest, a former medieval royal hunting forest with public footpaths throughout. In contrast the town of Towcester is just 5 miles away, with a range of shops, historic buildings, restaurants, a race course and a rugby club. Private schooling is available in Northampton which is just 9 miles away, Stowe and of course the Harpur Trust Schools in Bedford. There are good rail links to London from Northampton and Milton Keynes which is 10 miles away. The village itself has a very good primary school which has an Outstanding Ofsted report, a traditional pub, a community centre and a village shop. There is also superfast fibre broadband in the village.
