Location: Lilford is an attractive, rural village which evolved around Lilford Hall, a substantial country house with fabulous parkland. The land was owned by King David I of Scotland at the time of the Domesday Book. The majority of the properties within the village were estate cottages or farm buildings. The village is surrounded by gently rolling farmland and the River Nene runs close by, on its way towards Oundle and beyond. There are a number of footpaths and bridleways leading from the village, affording access to the countryside. The neighbouring villages of Thorpe Waterville and Wadenhoe each have popular public houses serving food. The nearest shopping facilities are in the historic market towns of Oundle and Thrapston, each about 4 miles away and providing traditional family run shops, businesses and restaurants. Lilford has excellent access to the major road network, with the A14 lying about 5 miles to the South and the A1 about 9 miles to the North-East. There are main line rail stations at Kettering, Huntingdon, Peterborough and Wellingborough, with journey times to London from 50 minutes. 

Rilkean House offers substantial family accommodation over two floors. The property was originally constructed as part of a quadrangle of barns to serve the architecturally and historically important nearby Lilford Hall. Of early Victorian build the brick & stone barns feature a series of symmetrical brick archways with the single storey elements being open to show the roof trusses and rafters. Having been converted to dwellings in the late 1990's this property is being offered to the market for the first time since it's completion. 

The village is accessed via a private lane to the north of the Pilton/Clopton Road. The single track lane turns into a wide gravel drive through an impressive stone gateway, this in turn leads to the quadrangle of barns on the left-hand side. Rilkean House is to the end on the left.

A gravel drive provides turning and parking space along with access to the oversize single garage/workshop. The main entrance door is located within one of the brick arches and gives access to the dining hall. The oak floor compliments the exposed roof timbers and double doors open into the sitting room. There is direct access to the rear garden, rear hall and kitchen/breakfast room. The capacious sitting room features a pair of exposed roof trusses and rafters. A pair of brick archways are glazed to their full height and further windows overlook the rear garden. To one end a large log-burner sits atop a glazed hearth and provides a focal point.

The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a range of bespoke oak units to two walls. A double Belfast sink below a glazed part arched window to the front and various integrated appliances are included. There are numerous windows and skylights with exposed roof timbers, ample space for family dining and a door to the utility hall. In the utility the flagged floor flows through from the kitchen and fitted units provide storage and space for the usual appliances. Doors lead to the rear garden and large office/snug.

Another arched window to the front is the main feature of this oak floored room and a door leads to the garage. Within the garage a drop down ladder gives access to a large loft space,that could, subject to planning permission, provide additional living space. Double doors to the front allow vehicular access.To the rear of the garage is the boiler room, this houses the floor standing oil fired boiler and oil tank. 

From the inner hall, off the dining hall, stairs rise to the second floor. There is a useful guest cloaks cum shower room and access to the two ground floor bedrooms, one of which currently serves as an office the other as a guest bedroom with en suite bathroom.

To the first floor the landing benefits from various windows and skylights. One bedroom has a large walk-in wardrobe that could readily be converted to an en suite shower/wc. The final bedroom is the main bedroom suite with dressing area and bathroom.

The rear garden is fully enclosed by brick and stone walling, being mostly shaped lawn with well stocked sculptured borders surrounding. Being orientated to the south east there is a large paved seating area adjacent to the rear of the property.
