1 Thorpe Court is one of a select development of five conversions, formerly barns and workshops belonging to Lilford Hall, and converted in the 1990's to substantial detached residences.
This unique property is situated in the charming village of Thorpe Waterville. Aside from the access to the beautiful surrounding countryside the village boasts a pub/restaurant, and a very strong sense of community spirit that makes village life so appealing.
Thorpe Court is situated on the A605 between Thrapston and Oundle and is extremely private with large hedges and mature trees screening each property. It offers over 330 square metres of versatile living accommodation representing amazing value for money! To make the most of the far -reaching views, the floor plan is currently in an 'upside down' style. The space is flexible and could easily be arranged differently if required. The property needs some cosmetic updating and the buyers' imagination can run wild with how to use the multiple rooms! One room is large enough to house a full-size snooker table, two pianos and a double bass without a squeeze - this could easily become a studio, a music room, a business space. The 'wow factor' of this home is its size inside and out.
