A five double bedroom, five en suite barn conversion in a cul-de-sac which is walking distance from the town centre amenities, Rushden Lakes and open countryside. The property formed part of the old Manor Farm which was given Grade II listed status in 1949. The original building dates back to the 17th century with an extension in the mid -19th century. When converted in 2004/5 period features retained include ceiling beams and deep window sills which are a feature in several rooms. The versatile accommodation of just under 2,500 sq. ft. has been upgraded by the current owners including rustic engineered oak flooring. Mature trees provide privacy in the south facing landscaped rear garden. The front garden is enclosed by stone walling and a block paved drive and gravelled areas provide secure parking for up to four cars. A semi detached renovated barn is currently used as a games room but could be adapted into annexe accommodation or a home office subject to the relevant consents. For sale with no upper chain.
