This stunning stone farmhouse with a traditional Collyweston roof, is situated on the edge of the picturesque village of Laxton, surrounded by the Rockingham forest countryside. A traditional farmhouse that has undergone extensive refurbishment but still retains bygone features.

The ground floor accommodation is practical and well thought out for family life. Multiple large rooms offer flexibility, be that for a large family, or those with multiple generations, or someone needing home / office space. The property has had a sympathetic modernisation, blending together modern convenience with period features.

A stone porch over the main entrance provides space for boots, with the original wooden door opening into the principle reception room, which stretches in excess of 8 metres in length. The lounge retains the flagstone and timber flooring and a charming stone fireplace houses a stove to add to the cosy feel of the room. A bay window affords views to the gardens at the side of the house.

Beyond the lounge, to the front of the house, there is a separate sitting room, again with flagstone flooring, and a stove set into a stone fireplace. Beyond this is an office, with its' own dedicated entrance and a WC.

On the other side of the 'L' leading off the lounge, there is a hallway giving access to the remaining ground floor accommodation. Leading off the hall is a formal dining room with views to the side aspect. The dining room has a stonework chimney breast and mantle. The room is a considerable size, holding, as it does presently, table and chairs for 16 people.

The dining room opens out into a well appointed kitchen / breakfast room. The heart of the home has plentiful storage with walnut shaker style base and wall units, integrated dishwasher, double oven, and hob with extractor hood over.

The remainder of the ground floor comprises of a useful boot room / utility room which has built in units with a sink and drainer, and space and plumbing for laundry appliances - ceramic flooring and an external door make this an ideal entrance point for muddy dogs or children! Adjacent is a second ground floor WC and stairs from the hall lead to the cellar, comprising two separate areas approximately 5m x 2.4m and 5m x 2.1m respectively, each with what would have been the old coal chute windows.

The first floor has five large double bedrooms each with an en-suite.

Externally there are large grounds of approximately half an acre. The garden comprises of a vast expanse of lawn, bordered by mature trees, hedging to the front and right of the property. The front of the property has a sizeable driveway with turning area and parking for several cars, the area beyond has been cleared and the boundary clearly marked with a quirky split rail fencing and views across the farm land.

The pretty village of Laxton is located in the Rockingham forest, providing a rural setting within easy reach of the A43 and A1(M). The railway station at Corby has regular services that will get you into Central London in around an hour, making this a wonderful easy escape for commuters.

The beautiful market towns of Oundle, Uppingham and Stamford are close by offering excellent schooling, charming shops and cafes.

If the delightful countryside walks that are on your doorstep are not enough, Barnwell Country Park, Fineshade Woods, Priors Hall Golf Club and Rutland Water are all within easy reach offering a range of outdoor and country pursuits.
