Five Bedroom Character Property For Sale in Weedon Northamptonshire.
Ivydene…A Love Story.
No actual date can be found for when Ivydene was originally built as a farmhouse but it can be traced back to circa early 1600’s.
This handsome Grade II Listed property sits in a prominent position right in the heart of the village.
The house has stood witness to civil war, the arrival of the military depot in the Napoleonic wars, plagues, canals and railways. If only the walls could talk, there would be a few stories to be told.
Ivydene was professionally and loving restored 8 years ago.
Many objects were discovered hidden under floorboards and buried in the garden. It now houses its very own Museum of all these artefacts which will remain in the house.
The house itself oozes a sense of history with many character features such as the bread oven, locked tea cupboard, the servants bell and one of the bedrooms incorporates the wig room. The bannister rail is similar to that found at the local Cannons Ashby.
The heart of this beautiful home is the large farmhouse kitchen with the gas fired rayburn. Everyone congregates around the dining table. The current custodians have spent many wonderful times with family and friends here.
In the evening a newly installed wood burner makes the living room cosy and the additional reception room is used currently as a library/family room by the current owners. The flag stone floor in this room is a particular favourite of mine.
Upstairs the large spacious landing with the amazing exposed floorboards are a sight to behold and just add to this homes historic past.
With two en-suite bedrooms as well as two family bathrooms this home works superbly. Everyone has their own space.
In addition to the three floors there is a large cellar currently used as a workshop, wine cellar and winery which I can vouch for.
A huge loft space runs the whole length of the house and in addition there’s also an annex!
Currently a studio flat with kitchen are and bathroom this would make a fantastic granny/teenage space or how about an Airbnb?
Outside a south facing private rear garden is glorious and in the spring when the cherry trees blossom it is picture postcard.
The property also benefits from off road parking.
Weedon Bec, if you have never been, is a sought-after Northamptonshire village – some would say it’s the centre of England!

There are several Public Houses to choose from plus the ever popular "Granny’s Cafe" which is well worth a visit.
The Village has an Infant School and Junior School.
The Grand Union canal runs through the village and with the numerous bridleways and footpaths, there is no excuse for not taking a walk.
The main road networks are close at hand which makes commuting to anywhere very easy. Long Buckby railway station is only a short car journey away too.
