1 2 1


Steeped in history and natural beauty, the delightful village of Islip plays the perfect host to a select enclave of properties currently being developed by respected local builders Messrs CHBC Property Limited, a team of professionals with over 30 years’ experience developing property in and around East Northamptonshire. ‘The Green’ couldn’t be better located: from the neighbouring 15th Century Church of St Nicholas; the close proximity of the recreation ground and sports clubs; to the gentle walks alongside the River Nene towards Thrapston or Aldwincle. The increasingly- familiar red kites soaring effortlessly overhead are the icing on the cake! The first property to be released ‘for sale’ is 4A, a brand new end-terrace home with generous rear garden and parking for two vehicles. ‘The Green’ comprises a Grade II listed thatched cottage (undergoing complete renovation including a brand-new thatch); a link-detached Victorian three-bedroomed cottage with outbuilding (undergoing complete renovation); two Victorian terraced homes (now occupied); and the brand-new two-bedroomed end-terrace cottage.


4A The Green will afford many features and benefits including:

· White uPVC double-glazed Georgian-style windows with energy-efficient low emissivity glass

· ‘Canyon Oak’ luxury vinyl flooring and underfloor heating throughout the ground floor

· ‘Neue’ kitchen appliances

· Recessed low-energy lighting

· Air source heat pump heating/hot-water system

· USB internet sockets to most rooms

· Contemporary white internal doors with stainless-steel door furniture

· Two allocated parking spaces
