Horts Estate Agents are delighted to offer this exceptional detached cottage believed to date back to 1845 and originally used as the local butchery. York Cottage retains some delightful character and period features whilst also marrying more contemporary additions. Offering five reception rooms to the ground floor, the building could be well suited to people wanting to operate holistic/lifestyle businesses or alternatively families looking to create a separate annexe for other family members.
In brief, the accommodation comprises entrance porch, lounge, dining room, kitchen, office/study, snug, family room/bedroom three and w.c. to the ground floor. To the first floor there are two double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The property further benefits from oil fired central heating, a separate gas supply for the range cooker and Upvc double glazing throughout. The cottage is positioned on a generous plot with thoughtfully planted gardens and is also located within the heart of this highly popular Northamptonshire village. The village itself is full of convenience and offers a village shop, a well regarded primary school, a village hall, a church, a public house and a great community where there are many local events and activities. This is a unique and deceptively large cottage which needs to be viewed to appreciate all that is on offer.
