    About this property

    • Lot 1: The Old Farmhouse
      Built in the 17th century, of stone construction under a thatched roof. The Old Farmhouse is a beautiful Grade II Listed family home located in the heart of the village of Wroxton, occupying an enviable position opposite the village duck pond.

      Formerly three cottages, the farmhouse was converted into one property, by the current owners in the 1970s, to create a well-proportioned home laid out over three floors.

      Entrance hall with wood panelling and access to a cloakroom, opens to a drawing room with log burning fireplace, a dining room with wood burner and on into a kitchen with built in base and wall units, a fixed seating area and a separate shelved larder. There is a utility room which abuts Mullions and gives access both externally and up to the first floor.

      A conservatory, located off the drawing room, overlooks the gardens with French doors onto the terrace. Two staircases, one from the utility room and the other from the entrance hall, lead to first floor accommodation comprising a principal bedroom with dressing area and en suite bathroom and two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

      Second floor accommodation, currently laid out as four bedrooms, could be converted to two guest suites (subject to the relevant consents).

      The annexe of The Old Farmhouse has contemporary furnishings and comprise a double tandem garage, with access both from within the grounds of the property and off the driveway, and garden store.

      Ground floor entrance hall, cloakroom with stairs to a spacious open plan kitchen/dining room/sitting with double height A-frame timbers with views over the garden. Kitchen, with built in units, integrated dishwasher, gas cooker and hob, space for a fridge/freezer, French doors onto a small terrace.

      Bedroom with views over the garden, built in full height wardrobes and bath/shower room.

      On a plot of just under 0.5 acres, The Old Farmhouse abuts the village road with beautiful views over a private enclosed garden.

      Terraced on three levels the main garden is predominantly laid to lawn with established flower beds and shrubbery.

      Paths either side lead to a swimming pool (in need of renovation) with stone built store housing the water pump.

      The top terrace is a completely private area enclosed by mature trees. There is also a detached garden store off the lower garden.

      Lot 2: Mullions
      A Grade II Listed thatched cottage laid out over two floors. Entrance hall with parquet wood floor, and window to the garden, leads to a sitting room with open fireplace with a log burning stove.

      Kitchen/breakfast room with built in base units, wooden worktops, space for fridge and freezer and large cupboard to provide extra storage, or as a larder.

      First floor accommodation comprises three bedrooms, all with built in storage and a recently fitted family bathroom.

      Mullions has use of a single garage and a driveway, as well as garden to the front and side of the property. There is a vegetable garden, greenhouse and stone bothy.

    It's getting harder and harder to find a house and separate cottage as charming as this. Adding to this there is a separate annexe and lovely gardens - bingo!
