THE PROPERTY

"Bramleys" is a handsome period property standing in a prominent position within the conservation area of this popular north Northamptonshire village, believed to date back to the early 19th century with it formerly being the village wheelwright and blacksmiths. It is now a substantial family home of great character standing in a walled garden of 0.41 acre with a range of outbuildings including a substantial 33' barn and a separate, self contained two bedroom cottage which would make an ideal annexe or rental opportunity. This substantial home has been in the same family for the last 26 years and is now ready to be handed over to its new custodians to enjoy its potential and character as much as the present owners do. There are modern bi fold doors leading into a spacious reception space which includes the kitchen and breakfast area with stairs to the first floor and access to the cloakroom. The kitchen has a range of fitted appliances including a gas fired Aga and Quooker boiling tap. There are two well proportioned reception rooms to the front of the property both of which have period fireplaces and exposed timbers. Approached by steps off the kitchen area is the family room with its beamed vaulted ceiling and Clearview wood burning stove set in a brick chimney with access through to the substantial utility room and gardeners wc. This area also has access through to the unconverted adjoining barn, which would make an ideal conversion to further accommodation into possibly an impressive vaulted kitchen/breakfast room. FIRST FLOOR The main bedroom has a dressing area and en suite shower room whilst there is a further double bedroom and a single bedroom with a separate four piece bathroom suite. SECOND FLOOR There are two further double bedrooms with vaulted ceilings having gabled windows overlooking the rear gardens. THE COTTAGE "Bramley Cottage" is approached off the High Street through a covered walkway and has a fitted kitchen with appliances, sitting room with fireplace and a cloakroom/shower room with a further useful boiler room at the end of the property. On the first floor there is a very attractive landing with vaulted ceiling, two double bedrooms and a four piece bathroom suite including a freestanding roll top bath. The cottage has its own separate services from the main house and access to its own private gardens. OUTSIDE "Bramleys" is approached through a pair of double leaf wrought iron gates leading to off road parking for several vehicles on a block paved drive with access to the gardens. A particular feature are the walled gardens with a number of interesting secluded areas including a loggia, laid predominantly to lawn with various maturing trees including a fine blue cedar. There are flower and shrub borders with the whole area offering a good degree of privacy and enjoying a westerly aspect. There is a range of outbuildings including a substantial unconverted 33 ft barn with three double leaf doors and an attached outbuilding which was believed to be the former blacksmiths forge. There is a further garden studio/entertainment building which would make a fabulous entertaining area with a mezzanine first floor and bar area. "Bramley Cottage" has its own enclosed gardens laid to lawn again with flower and shrub borders.
