Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A substantial and unlisted former Victorian school, which is within a Conservation Area, Mandate House offers over 4200 square feet of accommodation and a south facing garden plot in excess of half an acre in total, in an attractive Northamptonshire village setting adjacent to St Peter's Parish Church.

The property is owned by a Christian charity and is used for conferencing facilities and as a residential home, combining large reception rooms and six bedrooms, served by three bath or shower rooms. Following favourable preplanning advice, formal permission was granted by East Northants Council (18/02394/FUL).
The property has consent for use as a residential dwelling or as a live/work home base.


ACCOMMODATION
At ground floor level, the main entrance hallway leads to the west through a reception room/office and study to the former school rooms. The renovated and modern kitchen adjoins with a dining room and expansive living space within the fabulous, vaulted former school hall itself. A staircase also rises to a self-contained annexe flat, from which there are more lovely views over the landscaped garden and countryside, with a sitting room, kitchen, two bedrooms, dressing room and bathroom.

To the east of the entrance hallway, the expansive south facing sitting and living rooms are currently conferencing facilities, with access to the gardens, with a ground floor bedroom wing with three further bedrooms served by two shower rooms.

OUTSIDE
Electric gates to the west of the building, access a driveway and parking area for many vehicles. The south facing beautifully maintained and mature gardens are arranged with formal lawns, sunken flower beds and shrubs, with various seating terraces strategically placed for tracking the sun through the day. Two outbuildings with electricity and lighting offer excellent workshop and storage facilities.

Location

Clopton is a small east Northamptonshire Conservation Village, located close to the county's border with Cambridgeshire.

It is well-connected to the A1, approx. 2 miles east of the A605 and 4 miles north of the A14, and situated in attractive countryside to the north of Titchmarsh, a village that supports a public house, village shop, church and primary school.

Commuter rail services to London Kings Cross and St Pancras station run from Huntingdon and Kettering, both in under an hour, whilst the A1 and A14 offers a direct and improving road link to Cambridge, 31 miles to the east.

The area is also blessed with a choice of excellent schooling. Titchmarsh's primary school feeds secondary schooling in Kettering, whilst Laxton Prep and Oundle are circa 6 miles from the property with Kimbolton and Wellingborough Schools a little further.
