The market town of Raunds is situated in the heart of East Northamptonshire and enjoys easy access to all the major roads and motorways, including the A45 and A14 which link to the M6, M1, A1 and M11. Owing to the wide range of manufacturing and distribution businesses in the area, it is an increasingly-popular town for local workers and commuters alike.
The town enjoys a full range of shops and amenities including supermarkets, amedical centre, GP surgery, post office, schooling for all ages, restaurants and parks. The town square hosts a Friday market with regular stallholders selling fresh local produce. Nearby Stanwick Lakes affords extensive play areas to keep families entertained, and acres of wide open spaces and paths. The multi-million pound development of Rushden Lakes—a new and exciting retail, leisure and tourism destination — saw its first stores open in July 2017, with more shops, restaurants and a multi-screen cinema to follow.

The property sits well back from the road behind a block-paved frontage which provides off-road parking for several vehicles. Behind the front boundary wall are a number of mature trees, whilst an attractive shrub planter sits to the side of the main entrance door.
Offering a fantastic opportunity for outside living, the excellent-sized rear garden has been cleverly landscaped to create distinct areas for entertaining and play: the expansive block-paved patio affords ample space for al-fresco dining; and the lawn, space for the children to run off steam. Timber fencing and mature hedging enclose the garden, whilst a paved footpath adjacent to the lawn leads through the garden, interspersed with mature trees, including a beautiful willow tree. Just when you think you have seen all the garden has to offer, prepare to be even more pleasantly surprised because not only is there another great-sized block-paved patio, there is also nestled beyond it a fabulous wooden garden/games room with bar, warm and comfortable for use all the year round. The garden further benefits from an outside tap, hard standing for four sheds, exterior lighting and gated pedestrian access to the front of the property.
