The Elms is a fine example of a prominent stone property dating from the 17th Century with further extensions in the 19th century and being Grade ll listed of archeological and historical importance. It sits centrally within the village of Duston and in a conservation area adjacent to the Church of St Lukes. The house has been within the same ownership for 60 plus years with many links to the local community and offers opportunities for interior remodelling and expansion with the potential to make a wonderful family home again. It is set within established grounds of 0.8 acres having off road parking and planning consent for a double garage. Although the potential for the house as a single family home is attractive, it does offer the flexibility to have an annex if required for larger families. An additional benefit is that there is currently planning consent for sub division of the main house into three properties if that is required. Plans and consents are available from ourselves for inspection. The accommodation of the main house extends to 6,084 sq feet and in brief extends to the hall with a kitchen to the right and cloakroom to the left. Directly ahead is a large dining room which opens onto a drawing room. Both are impressive rooms, have parquet floor and an abundance of light with dual aspects and period features. Running off the kitchen and connecting to the oldest part of the house is a breakfast room which provides access to the gardens. Beyond this is a run of rooms which include a study, shower room and bedroom. The original hall with front door lies beyond with the sitting room running off. On the first floor, there is a run of five bedrooms, all of which have either fitted cupboards or walk-in ones, as well as two bathrooms and a separate WC. On the second floor there are a further two double bedrooms and a games room. Above the drawing room there is substantial and, potentially, usable loft space which is accessed by stairs in the adjacent wood shed. OUTSIDE The house has gated entrances from Millway, and one from the Main Road, which is the main entrance. The garden's perimeter is well planted with mature trees and shrubs providing excellent privacy. Immediately to the south of the house is the more formal garden with a gravel and stone terrace running the length of that faade. The property will also retain a right of way from Main Road across the adjoining land. The whole site extends to approximately 0.8 acres and bordered in the main by stone walling and mature orchard having a sunny south westerly aspect. The front gardens provide off road parking for several vehicles and access is retained from Main Road. PLANNING AND BOUNDARIES There is Listed Building Consent to subdivide the farmhouse into 3 individual buildings (N/2019/0710) with Full Planning Permission to the same subdivision (N/2019/0707). It may suit being retained as a single house. These consents and permissions date from mid-September 2019 and can be found on the Northampton Borough Council Website: http://planning.northamptonboroughcouncil.com/ planning There will be erected a stone wall along the boundary between the house and adjoining land to an agreed standard and run within 1 metre of the wood shed.
