Property Description

A superb opportunity to acquire this exquisite 16th century, blue plaque residence of special architectural and historic interest, dating back to 1594 located in the thriving village of Brixworth. This magnificent building is constructed of beautiful Northamptonshire Ironstone under a reed thatched roof with living accommodation measuring in excess of 4,500 ft2 and occupies just under one third of an acre of grounds. Formally a farmhouse with stables, the outside still retains the original access where the stables once were and is now utilised as a carport giving access to the delightful formal enclosed garden measuring 115ft x 60ft. In addition, the property owns the private drive to the side of the property (allowing three neighbouring executive dwellings right of access) leading to a modern detached double garage with an enclosed enchanting kitchen garden beyond measuring 70ft x 55ft. The existing family converted the former stable in 1980 and launched a bookshop in 1982 named ‘The Fox In the Pound’ which became a landmark of the village. The existing family also launched the Brixworth Bugle from The Pound House which won a Villagers Countryman award in 1994 and is known today as the Brixworth Bulletin. Brixworth Village is situated 7 miles north of Northampton, 20 miles south of Market Harborough with regular buses services and major road networks including the A14 and A43.
