Full description

Enjoying delightful views over open countryside, a handsome 6 bedroomed Grade II Listed 18th Century stone and thatched detached former farmhouse of character with extensive outbuildings, swimming pool, tennis court and beautiful grounds of approximately 1.4 acres, located on the edge of the highly desirable north Northamptonshire village of Brampton Ash, only 4 miles from Market Harborough railway station.

The Thatched House is believed to date back to circa 1672, formerly part of the Spencer Estate, and is built predominantly in Northamptonshire stone beneath a thatched roof fronted with a Georgian facade having twin bay windows, and has exceptionally spacious and versatile accommodation retaining a wealth of period features including five reception rooms, bespoke fitted breakfast kitchen, 6 double bedrooms and three bathrooms.

The outbuildings and grounds form most attractive features of this fine country house, which are approached via a winding gravel driveway and courtyard, off which is a former stone built coach house which is currently used on the ground floor as a games room offering wonderful entertaining space, with a separate staircase rising to a large first floor flat with two reception areas. The Ostler's House is currently used as a workshop, to the rear of which is an impressive triple garage with plenty of parking to the front, integral shower room/w.c., and an external staircase rising to fantastic storage space above offering further potential.

Delightful gardens located to the side and front of the property with extensive undulating lawned areas, beautifully stocked flower and shrub beds, patio and seating areas taking advantage of the wonderful views, outdoor heated swimming pool, tarmac tennis court, a summer house and potting shed.

The thriving town of Market Harborough lies some 4 miles west of the village, with its mainline rail services to London St Pancras in approximately one hour.
