Perfectly framed by the beautiful Northamptonshire countryside, in a superb location almost equidistant between the thriving towns of Northampton and Kettering, is the picturesque village of Walgrave. It boasts a well-regarded primary school, a Post Office and a friendly pub and village hall, which forms the hub of community life. Situated right in the heart of the village, just a few yards from the parish church, is Victoria House, a spacious and beautifully presented property that has been a much loved home for the past fifteen years.

Mum and dad moved into Victoria House in July 2001, says Ann, shortly after their youngest granddaughter was born, but they had lived in the village for fifteen years prior to this. What really attracted them to the property was the fact that it was large enough for all the family to stay in total thirteen people, plus three dogs! and yet it was also relatively low maintenance, so on a whim they could lock up and travel either on holiday or to stay with family.

This beautiful home boasts generously proportioned rooms and an array of Victorian features that adds character and charm. There is an easy flow from room to room, making it ideal for busy family life, and the large conservatory creates a nice connection between inside and out. The garden is very pretty, not overlooked and has been designed to be low maintenance. It is mainly paved with mature trees dotted here and there, and creates a lovely space in which to sit and enjoy a little peace and quiet. The village playing fields are also just a short stroll away, so theres a lot of outside space to be enjoyed by the whole family.

The heart of the home is definitely the very large kitchen/diner, which is triple aspect, which makes it wonderfully light and bright. Many stories were told and moments shared around the large farmhouse table that can seat the whole family. More often than not the dogs could be found curled up in front of the big Rayburn range which adds a warm homely touch to the kitchen.

Christmases spent in the house as a family have been particularly memorable. We would all walk up to the church for midnight mass, where after we would head home to spend time around the open fire in the lounge while kids eagerly awaited Santas arrival. Victoria House is a real family home and one that is full of many very happy memories.
