FOR SALE BY AUCTION ON WEDNESDAY 14TH FEBRUARY 2024 AT 11.00 AM
SALE VIA A LIVE STREAMED AUCTION
GUIDE PRICE: £475,000 TO £500,000

This fine individual detached house is constructed in the gardens of The Old Vicarage and extending to approximately 0.4 of an acre in the heart of this characterful and sought-after south Northamptonshire village. The property requires complete internal refurbishment having suffered extensive flood damage resulting in the interior having to be stripped back to the bare walls in places and therefore represents a significant redevelopment opportunity. The four-bedroomed interior includes a master suite, three reception rooms, a kitchen, utility room and garage and the extensive lawned gardens contain a variety of fine specimen trees giving a high degree of privacy.
