Property description

Bywater Herring are proud to present this stunning three bedroom detached family home full of original character situated in the premium village of Mears Ashby. Built in 1761, the property was once two separate cottages that have now been combined, extended and refurbished to a very high standard and must be seen to appreciate the true beauty it holds within.

Planning permission has also been agreed for a further extension to create an Orangery addition to the rear of the property.

Set on a corner plot, the property is surrounded by beautifully manicured wrap around gardens complete with a working well and various seating areas for entertaining.

The village has a lovely public house, ‘The Griffins Head’ serving a range of traditional pub meals, wines and real ales, a excellent primary school, well stocked farm shop and cricket club close by to lend to the ambience of village life.

The area offers good access to major bus and road links, A45, A6, A14, M1 and M6, also close to Wellingborough train station offering a commutable distance to London city centre and major cities of Birmingham and Nottingham.

The property briefly comprises of entrance hall, snug, study, lounge, kitchen/diner, conservatory, utility room and downstairs cloakroom. To the first floor you will find three double bedrooms with an en suite shower room to the master, a family bathroom room and access to the loft space from with fitted loft ladder, fully boarded for extra storage.

What The Owners Say: - “We moved into Corner Cottage in 2012 and quickly became part of its 250 year history. The garden embraces the cottage on all sides in the same way the cottage wraps its arms around you at the end of a busy day. There is a calmness and a peace that is timeless which makes the cottage a beautiful place to live.

But beauty is not all about a place, there is also something very warm about the neighbours and residents of Mears Ashby. There are many societies and groups that keep the village a vibrant place to be a part of, if you so wish, and of course there is the village pub in walking distance which is full of the usual characters, many of whom have a long and interesting connection to the village.

The cottage offers more time and space to be, and not just to do”.

All viewings should take place by appointment and only involve members of a single household.

The property must have all doors open prior to the viewing taking place and if possible, the current occupants must leave the property for the duration of the viewing.
Everyone involved must wash their hands prior to the viewing and handwashing facilities should be made available with separate paper towels if possible.
