Description

New price! A beautiful well presented family home, with annexe, in a peaceful edge of village location


Situation
Litchborough is a sought after quiet traditional village approximately 7 miles from the market town of Towcester. The village has a church and village hall, public house and children's play area, Silverstone is close by.


There is good access to the A43, M1 and M40 and train stations at Milton Keynes and Northampton offering services to London Euston with journey times of around 35 minutes.


Nearby primary schools are found in Blakesley, Pattishall, Bugbrooke and Greens Norton with Towcester having both primary and secondary schools. Local preparatory schools include Winchester House (Brackley) and Carrdus (Overthorpe). Nearby public schools at Stowe, Northampton High, Tudor Hall and Bloxham. Further amenities can be found at either Greens Norton, Silverstone or Towcester. There is good access to public footpaths and many countryside walks.


Description
The Lime House dates back to the mid-18th Century with later additions, and is situated on a quiet no-through lane on the edge of the village. The current owners have undertaken sympathetic updating throughout, including converting a former barn into a fabulous annexe, and it is extremely well presented throughout, with many original period features, creating a very special family home.


Accommodation
The kitchen/breakfast room is dual aspect, with a family eating area and French doors opening onto a terrace. It comprises a good range of units, a Belfast sink and an oil-fired Alpha-range (used for cooking, heating and hot water).


The sitting room has a wood burner and provides a comfortable snug/family room with doors leading to the gardens. Steps lead to a study/occasional guest room. The drawing room is dual aspect, with feature fireplace and woodburner, and a large bay window creates an additional seating area. Completing the ground floor is a dining room, useful utility room and downstairs cloakroom.


On the first floor the master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom and views over the gardens. There are a further three double bedrooms, all with good storage, and a family shower room.


The detached annexe is a fabulous addition, with a large sitting/dining room, shower room and adjacent store (which has the potential to be converted to a kitchen). A mezzanine level has a bedroom.


Gardens and Grounds
The Lime House is approached via a gravel drive, with plenty of parking. There is in addition a carport, further stores and outdoor seating area.


The gardens are to the front and rear, mainly laid to lawn with established borders, and there is also a vegetable garden with raised beds. There is a useful period glasshouse.
