The second floor has the fifth bedroom with a living area off and an en suite shower room OUTSIDE Electrically operated timber gates to the side of the house open to a paved driveway providing ample off street parking and leading on to the two garages. The garden is well enclosed and is on two levels. The upper area is mainly laid to lawn and was formerly a grass tennis court. There is an Alton Victorian style greenhouse and a vegetable garden enclosed by picket fencing. The lower level is mainly lawn with mature trees and herbaceous and shrub borders. The garden is sunny and south-facing. LOCATION Flore is a popular larger village, which has just been bypassed taking much of the traffic off the High Street. It lies approximately mid-way between Northampton and Daventry and is conveniently placed for access to the M1 at Junction 16. The village has a church, chapel, public house, shop cum post office and primary school. The village is in the catchment area for Campion School at Bugbrooke. Private schools locally include Quinton House, Spratton Hall and Bilton Grange at preparatory level and the public schools at Stowe, Rugby, Uppingham and Oundle.
