Superb Country Home With Approximately 1.5 Acres Of Land For Sale In Watford Village, Northamptonshire.
IMPORTANT. This property will be opened up for scheduled viewings for one final time this coming Saturday.
If you are genuinely interested in this property, between Long Buckby and Watford Village, we highly recommend that you take a few minutes to read the following details as well as taking a good look at the photos and the floorplan provided.
There is also a video tour of the property that can be accessed from this page which will give you a full walk-through tour of the main property itself as well as the outbuildings and grounds.
If you have any questions then feel free to get in touch as we have a rather long ‘Fact Sheet’ about the property with lots of further detailed information.
This is a very handsome period property with a date-stone of 1823 which was built predominately with ironstone.
The main benefit to this admirable home is the secluded location at the end of a private drive with 360 degree views of rolling Northamptonshire countryside and the opportunity to further utilise several outbuildings.
We have never seen a country home more private than this one – all you can see is open fields for miles.
In addition to the main house you have several outbuildings including a double garage, separate home gym, two barn areas (that are already heated and ready for conversion) and let’s not forget the bar hidden at the back of the property, aptly named ‘The Brockhill Arms’. This room also features a bar/kitchen area and a beautiful log burner – this is a genuine party room.
There is also a sauna, shower room and a BBQ hut close by.
There are two Koi-Carp ponds. The larger of the two sits in the corner of the grounds and is undoubtedly one of the most peaceful and tranquil places we have ever visited – it is a truly remarkable place to sit with its fountain and views. We have more information about the care and upkeep of these ponds should you wish to continue using them, but please don’t feel you have to.
The property is accessed from Long Buckby Road, between Watford Village and Long Buckby, situated down a private 375m long driveway flanked by a wooden paddock fence and hedgerow. Two gates, one at the entrance to the driveway, which you can choose to leave open and security electrically remotely operated double gates to the main house itself.
The gardens have been very carefully thought out with low cut shrubbery borders so you can enjoy the full benefit of the surrounding views from any window aspect.
The plot itself is approximately 1.5 acres and even with the large block paved areas and outbuildings, there is still plenty of garden space to enjoy.
To the rear of the property the sun comes up over the BBQ Hut, moves around the back of the property and goes down behind the shrubbery to the right.
The majority of the main lawned area has an integrated irrigation system installed, for the summer months, with various ‘pop-up’ sprinklers and irrigation ‘drip feeds’ to the flower beds.
In the home itself you have a spacious kitchen/breakfast room as well as an additional five reception rooms including a snug/living room, dining room, study and two other reception rooms.
The property is in essence, split in two. One wing of the house has the two main bedrooms and the other wing is essentially an annex, or ‘The Folly’.
The main bedroom in the house benefits from a large walk in wardrobe as well as a beautiful ensuite.
Bedroom two also has its own ensuite.
The Folly has a downstairs reception room, its own kitchen area (which could also be used as a utility room) and its own bathroom and large bedroom. The Folly bedroom has a Juliet balcony overlooking the courtyard and built in wardrobes. The bathroom benefits from both a free standing bath and separate shower.
There is also a small lit wine cellar in the study.
There are two boilers with the property. One is located in the ‘Folly Kitchen’ in the annex, which serves the main house and there is another in the main barn which serves the main barn, the sauna/shower room and ‘The Brockhill Arms’.
All buildings, excluding the garage block, are fitted with a fully serviced burglar alarm system.
There is a remotely accessible CCTV in operation so you can keep an eye on your property while you are away.
There is a split design air-conditioning system fitted to the main house that provides hot and cold air conditioning to the two main bedrooms.
The main property has underfloor ‘wet heating’ to the kitchen/diner, study, dining room/conservatory, lounge and the rest of the annex – this is fed from the main boiler. The heating can be controlled either directly or remotely from your phone.
Most of the rooms benefit from fitted Thomas Sanderson wooden window shutters.
Watford is a small village that sits around 1/2 a mile from the A5 and is just a few minutes away from the M1. Long Buckby train station is just 5 minutes away too, making the location of the property a commuter’s dream.
It is a quiet village surrounded by miles of open fields and is filled with lots of character.
This property must be visited to be fully appreciated and it would be our pleasure to show you around via virtual video tour or at our next ‘open home’ on the weekend of the 9th January.
So, if you would like to come and have a look then feel free to give the Campbells team a call at the Heart of The Shires Shopping Village.
