    About this property

    • A delightful well presented Grade II listed “Grafton” farmhouse dating back to the early 19th century.

      Period features include open fireplaces, sash windows, arched openings, attractive principal staircase and lantern.

      Improved and extended by the current owner, the property offers extremely spacious and well-proportioned reception rooms, ideal for entertaining. In particular, the kitchen and breakfast room spills out into the central family room/library which leads through to a delightful triple aspect drawing room. From here you really can appreciate the best of the garden to the west. As a result this house would certainly be of appeal to families with plenty of space for formal and informal entertaining.

      Delightful principal suite with dual aspect and spacious bath/dressing room.

      Useful guest wing which could be adapted to provide income stream, working from home or granny annexe, subject to the relevant consents.

      The property is approached along a gravel driveway flanked by yew and beech hedging which leads to an extensive parking and turning area to the side of the house. From here a gravel pathway leads to the front door, as well as a paved pathway to the utility room to the rear.

      Range of useful outbuildings including double garage, potting shed, workshop/offices above with scope to improve and/or convert to additional accommodation, subject to the relevant consents.

      The gardens lie predominantly to the west and north and are laid to lawn with terrace, stone wall and yew hedging. Orchard. Vegetable garden flanked by yew hedging. Tree house.

      To the south there is a spinney and small paddock, ideal for a pony.

      There is a considerable amount of privacy offered by the extensive gardens and grounds as well as the glorious views to the west over rolling Northamptonshire countryside.

      This is spacious and well laid out family living, offered in excellent order and ideal for those looking for the London commute with the excellent train links offered from Milton Keynes.
