Set in the heart of the village, ‘Highcross House’ was originally built in the early 1720’s. The property has an attractive frontage which is set back from the High Street, just a short walk from all of the village’s amenities.
The property has plenty of character features which include; sash windows, high skirting boards and tiled and wooden ‘Parquet’ flooring, to name just a few.
Historically, it was once the village children’s home and until about 18 years ago ‘Highcross’ was also the village post office. More recently, it was used as a home bakery business.
The ample and spacious accommodation consists of a character entrance hallway with access to a cellar, a large lounge, separate family room, a study, cloakroom, inner hallway/boot room, utility room, a large spacious kitchen/diner and to the rear of the kitchen is separate dining room which is also presently set up as a kitchen.
On the first floor are five good size bedrooms, two with ensuite facilities.
The master bedroom is in excess of 30ft and has a large walk-in wardrobe and access to an additional room which could be a playroom/office or even a large nursery, which leads you to a balcony overlooking the rear garden. (This whole room has recently been used as a separate annexe)
On the first floor there is a feature landing and a large family bathroom with double sinks a roll top bath.
As briefly mentioned earlier, the property’s master bedroom has been converted into a first floor self-contained annexe with a separate entrance to the main dwelling. It benefits from its own kitchen and bathroom and would make a great annexe for a teenager or relative.
It would also be an ideal ‘AirB&B’ in the summer months or it could provide a regular income as a separate one bedroom rental property – Food for thought!
To the rear of the property is a nice size garden which is mainly laid to lawn with side gated access to Braunston high street. There is also a good size useful brick built workshop.
To the front is an attractive blue brick courtyard which is set back from the road and the other High Street properties.
