This very handsome property forms the largest part of Dallington Hall which is an exclusive address adjacent to Dallington Park. The house dates from circa 1720 and is built of Harlestone stone with a slated roof and sash windows. It was built for Sir Joseph Jekyll, Master of the Rolls. Later owned by the Raynsford family and subsequently the Spencer family from Althorp. It became a convalescent home for wounded soldiers during the Second World War and was then converted to apartments. The accommodation is entered by a massive front door to an entrance lobby, for which the property has exclusive use. Beyond is a magnificent two storey high staircase hall with a fine individually listed Georgian oak staircase and a part glazed door leading to the private garden to the east. The drawing room has an open fireplace and full length sash windows, on its south side, overlooking a sunny terrace. The dining room, accessed off the drawing room and the kitchen, has a glazed door to the terrace and a staircase leading down to the lower ground floor. The kitchen/breakfast room is well fitted with built-in appliances. There is a sitting off the staircase hall as well as a cloakroom. The lower ground floor includes a large vaulted games room, the utility room, a well fitted shower room with sauna and the boiler room. On the first floor there is a large master bedroom with shower room en suite, four further spacious bedrooms and a large family bath/shower room. Dallington Hall stands well set back from Dallington Park Road on the edge of a small Conservation Village. Dallington village forms part of the periphery of Northampton and the house is adjacent to Dallington Park, opposite Dallington Lawn Tennis Club and close to Fitness First. Northampton railway station is within walking distance and provides fast trains to London Euston in under an hour. The town centre is approximately two miles away.
