Property details

Substantial four bedroomed Grade II listed detached former farmhouse of immense charm and character offering potential for modernisation and improvement with extensive outbuildings including a detached listed barn, gardens and paddock extending to approx. 0.45 acres (0.182 hectares) in total located within the highly desirable north Northamptonshire village of Wilbarston.

Believed to date back to the 17th century, retaining a wealth of period features including stone mullioned windows, exposed beams and an inglenook fireplace, this predominantly ironstone and limestone built family home offers excellent potential for further extension and modernisation, subject to planning.

With the benefit of gas fired central heating, the exceptionally spacious and versatile interior includes an entrance hall, lounge, drawing room with feature fireplaces, study, boiler room, dining room with inglenook fireplace, fitted kitchen with pantry and utility.

On the upper floor off a rear landing are three double bedrooms and a family bathroom. Approached via stone steps is a wonderful attic room/bedroom four with rare cruck beams. There is also a huge attic space with excellent potential, again, subject to planning and building regs.

The property has the advantage of extensive outbuildings, a former milking parlour, garage and stores. A farm gate provides access to extensive off road parking and a double garage, and there is a beautiful detached barn offering excellent potential for alternative uses, again subject to planning.

To the rear of the house are stone walled gardens with a lawned area, vegetable patch, aluminium framed greenhouse and patio areas, immediately to the rear of which is a small paddock.


The picturesque village of Wilbarston lies on the edge of the Welland Valley and has a public house, primary school and shop/post office/cafe.
