About this property

  • An attractive stone and thatched, with great access to the river and a fabulous garden plot of circa 0.45 of an acre, the house is positioned at the end of the lane in this attractive Conservation Nene Valley village.

    Listed Grade II and in need of modernisation, the cottage benefits from listed building consent for a two storey rear extension (Ref: NE/21/01477/LBC, dated 6th May 2022).

    The cottage retains an abundance of character, with period features such as deep-silled windows, exposed joinery and wide board floorboards, together with latched doors. The current accommodation is arranged over two floors with a front door that opens into the dual-aspect sitting room, with inglenook fireplace. A step down leads to an inner hall, with a bathroom off, and access to the kitchen is fitted with a basic suite, with windows to the garden and a door to the garden, with a lovely view down the lane. At first floor, there is a large landing area and two bedrooms, one with doors to a balcony (which is unsafe and not to be used), which would give a great view over the garden and fields beyond.

    The planning consent allows for a ground floor kitchen and first floor principal bedroom extension, allowing the bathroom to move upstairs. Plans are available from the agent.

    Positioned at the end of Church Lane, with the river and the church fields nearby, a dry stone wall serves as the front boundary with a hand gate and pathway leading to the current kitchen's door. The lawns lies to the west of the house, sloping gently along the lane south-west towards the timber garage and the drive, which provides parking, and rising from the house to the north west, with a path that winds its way through the spinney and orchard to fields. In all the plot measures about 0.45 acres.

    Services: Mains water and electricity. Private drainage.

    Local Authority: North Northamptonshire Council.

    Council Tax: E (£1,571.07 2022/2023)

This is such a pretty cottage, with an amazing garden, and positioned in one of my favourite Nene Valley villages. At the end of a lane, with The Kings Head nearby (, this is a perfect position if you enjoy village life, rural walks, or paddling or swimming in the river. The cottage requires modernisation and has not been occupied for a few years, and the planning consent allows for the creation of a marvellous kitchen and principal bedroom.
