The Granary, NN10 0NN
A beautifully maintained and presented Grade II listed five bedroomed barn, set in an ideal, elevated location on the preferred south side of Rushden within walking distance of both the town and country and within 55 minutes total commuting time direct to London.
Once part of what was the old Manor dairy farm, it was professionally converted in 2004 / 2005 as part of an exclusive residential development with just two barns and 10 new executive 4, 5 and 6-bedroom properties built in a horseshoe shape to the outside of the old farm land.
With up to 3 feet thick external walls, the Granary is both noise-free and cost effective to heat.
It is fully centrally heated and benefits from satellite and fast broadband connectivity, mains gas, electricity and water, fitted safe, 4 smoke detectors, 5 bar deadlocks for all external doors and window locks on all windows. There is also a full alarm system and security lighting to the front and rear.
The property would suit a growing family that want to have all the advantages of the price differentials of living out of London, but with all the benefits of town and country living, local schools and services and easy access to London.
Constructed over two floors, with some bespoke woodwork and beamed ceilings, one of the outstanding and unique features of The Granary is that each of the five double bedrooms has its own ensuite facilities. There is also a family bathroom with a large claw foot roll top bath and separate corner shower.
On the ground floor, the large and fully fitted bespoke country kitchen can accommodate a table for six. It has an integrated refrigerator, separate freezer, dishwasher and range cooker. The utility room has space for a washer and dryer and there is a separate toilet/cloakroom.
A split level dining room with double doors to both the kitchen and large entrance hall / sitting room. Also on the ground floor are a study, under stairs cloakroom and a lounge with stone fireplace.
- THE ANNEXE
The annexe is currently used as a games room and could easily be used for multiple purposes including a "granny flat" subject to the usual permissions.
It has over 310sq ft of internal space (20'7" x 15'11"), power and light with an independent access from the side gate, double opening and locking door.
Location and amenities
Located in a set-back and traffic free cul-de-sac, The Granary is less than five minutes walk to a local Sainsbury's mini-store, local pub and other facilities including restaurants, doctors, chemists and local primary school and 10 minutes walk into the town centre with all major banks and other facilities including; local garage, butchers, greengrocers, bakers; a large Asda store; vets; hairdressers; Post Office; Tesco mini store; large country park and swimming pool.
In the other direction, it is 5 minute walk to other local parks, Rugby Club and open countryside.
What Rushden has to offer
Just inside East Northamptonshire and bordering North Bedfordshire, Rushden is surrounded by open farmland and local villages. London can easily be reached in under an hour by direct train from Wellingborough (6 miles, 10 minutes drive away) and in under 35 minutes from Bedford (12 miles, 20 minutes drive away). There are also direct train services from Bedford to Brighton, Leicester, Sheffield and many other parts of the Country. This makes Rushden ideal for commuting.
With such ease of access to London, Rushden and the surrounding area is rapidly beginning to competitively compete with the more traditional commuter areas and London Suburbs, bringing together the ideals of a country property with the convenience of everything a thriving market town brings.
In addition, to the north of the town there is a large Waitrose/John Lewis and "Rushden Lakes", a new £150 million pound retail and leisure development which opened in July 2017. This next generation shopping and leisure destination has 33 shops (including House of Fraser, Marks & Spencer, Pandora, Next, New Look, Boots etc.), eight lakeside restaurants and cafes, numerous stores and leisure facilities. This is the largest current development of its kind in the UK and means Rushden is one of the best served towns to now live in. East Northamptonshire Council leader, Steven North said: "Rushden Lakes is the retail, dining and leisure experience that the people of this district deserve. We're very excited to see people enjoying this unique site be it shopping, eating out or enjoying a walk around the lake, Rushden Lakes offers it all. The positive impact of this development will be enjoyed for many years".
Works on phase two of the development that includes a 14-screen cinema, indoor trampoline, climbing facilities, fitness complex, 18 more restaurants, eight more retailers and 461 extra parking spaces has already started and due for completion in 2019. (see www.rushdenlakes.com)
