Property Description

Four Bedroom Detached Property For Sale In Braunston.

DESCRIPTION: ‘Southview’ is a substantial four/five bedroom detached property which is for sale on the edge of Braunston with a large garage/workshop, a barn ideal for conversion and approximately four acres of adjoining land with no upper chain.

As the name ‘Southview’ would suggest, this imposing property offers unrivalled southerly views over the stunning Northamptonshire countryside and Braunston marina. The canalside boundary also offers the potential for three canal moorings subject to Waterways approval.

This well proportioned property offers generous, but flexible, accommodation in a quiet and scenic rural location.

The property is located at the end of a quiet lane off Braunston High Street – it would be fair to say that the property is in need of modernisation throughout, however, subject to correct planning consents on the barn and the garage, this substantial property could be a very special family home.

So, if you are looking for large family home with land in a quiet location which is in need of modernisation with plenty of further potential in a friendly and busy village, call the Campbells team today for details of our scheduled viewing events.

This might just be that special family home you have been looking for.

FOUR ACRES OF LAND: As previously mentioned, the property is being sold with approximately four acres of land which has historically been used as a horse paddock.

The land is separated from the property’s garden by a fenced public footpath which leads to the Braunston Marina via a hump back bridge and Nibbits lane which will lead you onto the village High Street.

The southern border of this land offers direct access onto the Grand Union Canal, this boundary has previously been used for moorings and offers the potential for at least three canal moorings subject to Waterways approval.

ACCOMMODATION: Access to ‘Southview’ from Nibbits Lane is via a wrought iron double gate which opens into a large parking area with comfortable parking for at least four vehicles and further covered parking in the barn if required.

The ground floor presently consists of two entrance hallways, three large reception rooms, a spacious kitchen, ground floor cloakroom plus a good sized utility room and then there is also a huge barn which has plenty of further potential, subject to planning consents.

On the first floor, a large landing leads you to four great sized double bedrooms, all with glorious countryside views towards and over Braunston Marina. The largest bedroom has en-suite facilities and a walk in wardrobe and there is also a family bathroom.

The landing also leads to a first floor annex which has a separate lounge, a kitchen and a double bedroom with an en-suite shower room. This could be used as a separate family annex, guest accommodation or you may even consider to let this area of the property for additional income – there are plenty of options to suit.

Further benefits include oil fired central heating and UPVC double glazing throughout.

To the side of the property is a large hardstanding which offers plenty of additional parking forward to the triple detached garage/workshop and once again, with the correct planning permissions, this area offers a great development opportunity.

This spacious property has a large mature terraced front garden and being south facing, it really captures the sun. The views from the large sun drenched paved patio area are just amazing as it overlooks the four acres of land included in the sale of this substantial property, the Northamptonshire countryside and Braunston Marina – this area provides a private tranquil relaxing seating area where you can enjoy the summer sunshine all day and is a perfect place to unwind.

If you are looking for a project with plenty of further potential then this really is a once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase a substantial property, in a simply stunning location and with four acres of land – ‘Southview’ will not disappoint.
