The Property
Northamptonshire stone built property under a thatch and slate roof originally built in 1990. The property occupies a pleasant position in this sought after village overlooking fields to the north and west and is being offered for sale with no chain.

The little village of Ashby St Ledgers lies just inside the south west boundary of Northamptonshire, just north of Daventry. It is an attractive village, with lovely thatched cottages and most buildings crafted in the local warm-toned ironstone.

At the heart of the village stands Ashby Manor, a beautiful Jacobean mansion that was home to the Catesby family for many years. Tradition holds that it was in a half-timbered chamber above the entry gateway to the manor courtyard that the Gunpowder Plot was hatched, under the leadership of Robert Catesby. This chamber became known as the 'Plotters Room', and the conspirators stored gunpowder and ammunition nearby.

Commuting is made easy as the A361 and A5 are only a few minutes away leading to the main motorways - the M1 is only ten minutes away.

If you need a train, Rugby (6 miles) and Long Buckby (4 miles) provide excellent services - you can catch a fast train to London Euston in under an hour.

The village is within the catchment area for Rugby Grammar schools, and benefits from school buses to Northampton High, Princethorpe, Rugby High and Lawrence Sheriff.
