Description

A stunning prominent and substantial period character stable block conversion set in an exclusive village location, offering spacious, versatile modern family living with access to beautiful Northamptonshire countryside and Pitsford reservoir nearby.

The stable block was originally built circa 1901 as part of Pitsford Hall Manor House estate (now Pitsford School) with a prominent and rich history, subsequently converted into the current domestic format in 1994.

‘Darwin Lodge’ has been thoughtfully designed for versatile, modern family living and briefly comprises a kitchen/breakfast room, lounge, dining room, downstairs WC, four double bedrooms with an en-suite shower room to the master, family bathroom, double garage, off-road parking, large private garden and communal use of the courtyard. The property is semi-detached, benefits from gas central heating and double glazing.

On the approach to the property via a private road with a quiet and safe feel, there is off road parking for multiple vehicles and a double garage with two separate up and over garage doors. Access through a pedestrian gate into a beautiful mature garden provides access to the main house via a main front door centrally and another door to the kitchen/breakfast room. To the right hand side of the property there is a private communal driveway leading through to a stunning central feature arch providing access to the communal courtyard.

The kitchen breakfast room has polished grey granite work surfaces and a range of base and wall mounted units with integrated fridge, freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher, a large Rangemaster gas range cooker/oven and a Vaillant wall mounted gas central heating boiler.

The inner hallway has stairs leading to the first floor with under stairs storage and a good sized downstairs WC with hand wash basin.

The main lounge is spacious and light and has a lovely homely feel with a fully fitted carpet and exposed ceiling beam. There is a coal effect gas fire and double doors leading out onto the patio and garden to the front elevation.

The main dining room on the ground floor is also a good size with double doors leading out onto a beautifully maintained stately communal courtyard area to the rear with a central feature garden.

On the first floor there is a fabulous master bedroom with floor to ceiling built in wardrobes and an en-suite shower room with WC and hand wash basin.

There are three further double bedrooms and a separate main family bathroom with distressed timber effect bath panel and flooring. Loft hatch access and a hot water tank storage cupboard are also on the main first floor landing.

Outside, the generous mature garden has a private feel, is mainly laid to lawn with two absolutely stunning specimen trees with further mature trees and shrubs into the borders, a block paved patio area, water point and two garden storage sheds. A good sized purposeful timber built garden building/studio with glazing, power and light is set to the side.

Additional pedestrian access to the side of the garden provides outside access to the communal courtyard area through the main arch. The property is only connected to a neighbouring property on a return in the corner at one end and by the main entrance arch of the courtyard at the other end of the property.

Pitsford reservoir is within easy walking distance, either through the village or across the fields (full access). The location is ideal for dog owners and people who enjoy the great outdoors and stunning countryside walks.

As a rural village it is not likely to see any large scale housing developments as much of the land owned by Moulton College is used for agricultural purposes. Much of the immediate land is a conservation area, preventing construction within the village boundaries or on the outskirts.

As the property is also part of a communal courtyard to the rear elevation with a lovely central garden area, it provides the option for enjoying the company of neighbours, including carol singing and mulled wine around a Christmas tree in the Courtyard, if occasional socialising is favourable. The design orientation and features of the property also provides excellent privacy.

An historic building with links to the Royal Family. In the twentieth century Pitsford Hall belonged to the Drummond family (prosperous bankers whose emblem, the griffin, can be seen around the estate and in the village), who were close friends of the Royal Family and in the 1930s, Edward VIII and George, Duke of York (later George VI) were regular guests, boasting their own luxury rooms in the Hall for when they visited. As a girl, the future Elizabeth II was also a regular visitor, along with her sister Princess Margaret, worshipping in the beautiful and very close parish church, learning to ride on the top lawn of Pitsford Hall.

Located in the heart of Pitsford village between Brixworth and Moulton close to Pitsford reservoir. Pitsford is a jewel of a village in the heart of the stunning Northamptonshire countryside. 5 minutes from Moulton College which has public leisure facilities, gym and swimming pool. 10 minutes to the local pub and primary school. Pitsford is also close to Brixworth village which has important history both ancient and modern with a vibrant, bustling feel and a high quality selection of shops, pubs and restaurants. The property is also close to playing fields in Pitsford and to Brixworth Cricket Club, Brixworth Country Park and Pitsford reservoir with its sailing club, 7 mile circular route and stunning sunsets making it perfect for cycling, dog walking, running, and water sports.

Ideal for London commuting it provides excellent access to the A43, A45, A14, M1, M6 and M11. Northampton train station is 6.7 miles (14mins) for efficient commuting into London Euston. Transport links also include the A508 Market Harborough Road, 5 minutes to Kingsthorpe shops, 20 minutes to Market Harborough, 15 minutes to the A14 and there is a good bus service.
