THE PROPERTY

A RARE OPPORTUNITY TO AQUIRE A WONDERFULLY POSITIONED FAMILY HOME WITH LARGE BARN OFFERING POTENTIAL IN A VERY DESIRABLE LOCATION CLOSE TO THE HISTORIC CASTLE ASHBY HOUSE ESTATE. Whiston Cottage is a wonderfully positioned family home located in the small conservation village of Whiston and is being offered with no onward chain. While it is recognised that the property provides scope for modernisation and improvement, Whiston Cottage offers a rare opportunity to purchase a delightful family home offering potential set within mature established gardens and grounds. On the ground floor a central main entrance hall incorporating an open study area provides access to the principal living accommodation which includes a sitting room with open fireplace and a separate dining room, both of which enjoy attractive dual aspects. Further accommodation comprises a good proportioned kitchen/breakfast room with fitted base and eye level units and integrated appliances to include a double oven, electric hob, dishwasher, Aga and fridge. Adjacent to the kitchen area there is a utility/boot room with walk-in pantry. A further feature to the ground floor is a useful shower room with wc and wash hand basin. On the first floor a spacious landing area provides access to five bedrooms and a four piece family bathroom suite. There is also a den/attic room which is accessed via loft ladder from the main bedroom. OUTSIDE The gardens and grounds form an attractive setting to Whiston Cottage and extend to all aspects of the property comprising formal laid to lawn garden area with mature trees, flowers and shrubs and additional grounds and a large gravelled courtyard providing secure off road parking for multiple vehicles. Also within the grounds there is a good size detached barn incorporating garaging, studio and workshop areas. Subject to gaining the necessary planning and building consents, the barn could provide potential use as self-contained ancillary accommodation to the main house or for use as domestic offices and or games room. LOCATION The small village of Whiston is close to good communication links with the A45 dual carriageway providing access to the M1 motorway (junction 15) and the A14 (A1/M1 link). The nearby villages of Earls Barton and Cogenhoe provide a range of facilities including a primary school, with more comprehensive facilities available in the towns of Northampton and Wellingborough. There are a number of attractive walks in the local area and the village is located close to the stunning Castle Ashby Estate with its public gardens, farm shops, café, delicatessen and boutique hotel. The attractive Georgian market town of Olney is also a short drive away. PROPERTY INFORMATION Services: Mains electric. Oil fired heating. Private drainage to cesspit.
