Handsome period house in a sought after Northamptonshire village.
Copperfield House is a notable property within the sought-after village of Blakesley. The flexible accommodation with the opportunity to extend, wonderful south facing garden, paddock and range of outbuildings with potential for a variety of uses, subject to any planning consents, make Copperfield House a must see. Originally dating from 1852, the property was previously the village post office and butcher shop and then converted to a house some years later. It has only been on the market twice since then and provides a unique opportunity.
The spacious dining hall benefits from an impressive flagstone floor and log burner. This leads to a light, open plan kitchen / breakfast room and connecting family room, which creates a welcoming heart to the home, with engineered oak floor throughout. The kitchen has fitted base and wall units, a useful larder cupboard and double ceramic sink and opens onto the spacious dining area with views down the garden and French doors on to the terrace.
The sitting room, with wood burner, and dual aspect study provide further flexible accommodation. The property also benefits from a utility room, boot room, with bench seating, WC and a conservatory, which provides further potential.
The first floor provides flexible accommodation, with a spacious master bedroom suite including an en suite shower room and walk in wardrobe. There is a further double bedroom with an en suite shower room exposed beams and views down the garden. This connects to another double bedroom and there are two further interconnecting bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The property benefits from an existing planning permission (S/2018/2479/FUL) offering the opportunity for a single storey extension and an outdoor swimming pool. More details are available from Savills.
GARDEN & GROUNDS
Accessed via double, timber gates and an archway is a private off road parking area and extensive gardens. There is a range of outbuildings, including a traditional brick building, formally used as an office, with a shower room. This connects to a sizeable open sided building with a workshop and range of stores. These buildings offer the opportunity for a variety of uses, subject to any necessary planning consents if required.
There is also a timber summerhouse providing useful additional space, with double doors on to the garden
To the rear of the house is a generous south facing, enclosed garden, with large terrace providing a wonderful entertaining area. A substantial lawn area with mature shrubs, trees and rose beds runs away from the house and leads to a grass paddock, with potential for a variety of uses, subject to any planning consents. The property in total extends to 1.15 acres (0.47 hectares).

I was immediately drawn to this welcoming, well presented family home. It is rare to find a village house with land, outbuildings and scope to extend. We are able to offer a virtual video tour on request.Catherine Scandrett
