** OPEN HOUSE SATURDAY 4th February 10.30am till 12.00 midday** PLEASE still call to arrange an appointment. A most desirable sought after two/three bedroom country house apartment located in the picturesque conservation village of Cottesbrooke.

Description - A most desirable sought after country house apartment located in the picturesque conservation village of Cottesbrooke. This desirable property is part of the beautiful Grange. The Grange was home to Cottesbrooke Hall. Sir John Langham commenced building of Cottesbrooke Hall way back in 1702. Cottesbroke Hall and several houses surrounding are quoted in Jane Austens Mansfield Park. Emperess Elizabeth of Austria leased cottesbrooke Hall in the 870s as a hunting home. Surrounding the Grange on three sides by communal lawns. On one side the historic twelth century church of All Saints. In the mid 1980s the Grange was divided into six charismatic house/apartments. The Grange has dressed sandstone walls covered by a tiled roof. It has graceful, tall chimneys and attractive mullion windows. Flat six has been considerably improved by the current owner.

Vendor Insight - The village itself is renowned for Cottesbrooke Hall and its magnificent gardens, which is a popular local attraction. Shops, schools and other amenities are located in adjacent villages which are equally attractive and each one containing its own distinctive character.
There are many delightful pubs in the area, and access to major roads and motorways is first-rate. Nearby is Long Buckby which is the preferred station for journeys into London Euston, and also into Birmingham. Northampton is conveniently close for larger shopping trips.
Having lived in the region for most of my life, I frequently walked around here and often dreamed of living in this village, but properties rarely became available. Therefore, in 2012 when the opportunity arose to purchase this
apartment, it was grabbed by both hands. Although it was sad and unloved, its beauty and potential were obvious and working tirelessly over a long period, it has been gloriously renovated and enhanced to become the fabulous home that it is today. A tremendous, home with spacious, elegant, rooms, combined with a layout which offers supreme flexibility on their use; it is an absolute joy to live here.
I gave much consideration to the design of the kitchen/dining room. It is of classic shaker style which melds in perfectly with the traditional elegance of remainder of the house. It has a few steps leading up to the reception rooms, all of which makes this area the ultimate party venue, of which there have been plenty.
It is quite special to live amidst such fabulous beauty. The manicured gardens, together with the external parts of the house, are well cared for by the Management Company. The grounds enable gentle strolls through woodland, to enjoy quiet times, or for relaxed occasions with friends for a sociable BBQ.
Although it may sound unusual, I adore the Master bedroom. It is spacious with a large, separate, dressing area which leads into the en suite bathroom.

The heart of this wonderful home is the kitchen/dining room, with windows to the rear of the property. The design makes it perfect for hosting dinner parties.
