Kingthorn Mill is an opportunity to acquire this beautiful Country Residence, a six bedroom detached former mill with a one bedroom annexe, a detached one bedroom cottage, garaging, stables and outbuildings in around 10.5 acres of landscaped gardens and grounds.
Ideal for families, the position of Kingthorn Mill is enviable, just on the outskirts of Greens Norton and close to the popular town of Towcester. The property has been with the current family for over 34 years as their residential home, with space to run their agricultural business as well as for private equestrian use.
The Main Residence was converted from a working corn mill in the 1930’s and offers nearly 4500sq.ft of beautifully presented and flexible accommodation. The current owners added a kitchen extension in 2005 offering a spacious, light kitchen/breakfast/family space whilst the older parts of the house retain much period charm and character.
The accommodation in brief includes two reception rooms, music room, study, kitchen/family room, utility and cloakroom on the ground floor. To the first floor is a master en-suite with walk in wardrobes, a further en-suite bedroom, two bedrooms with a shared bathroom and on the second floor are two further bedrooms and a play room (potential bedroom 7) with a bathroom.
(Further details can be found in the brochure)
The spacious cottage was completed in 2007 and has an entrance lobby which leads into a mostly open plan ground floor. The windows are triple aspect and light. Downstairs is the living/dining/kitchen accommodation. The kitchen area has a range of modern units with a sink, an electric oven and hob, and space for a fridge freezer. Double doors lead to an outside patio area. There is also a utility room, cloakroom and boot room on the ground floor with access to a further patio area and a small private garden. On the first floor the double bedroom has a vaulted ceiling with exposed wood effect beams, and a range of fitted wardrobes. The en suite has a bath, a separate shower cubicle, a washbasin, and a WC.
The cottage has a separate council tax band of B and has its own phone line and broadband.
Ideal for extended family or further business income (subject to the necessary consent).
Adjoining the main house, a walkway leads to the annexe which offers nearly 2,000 sq. ft of additional accommodation on three levels and also has independent access.
The ground floor has a study/sitting room with windows overlooking the pool terrace. Fantastic space which would be ideal, along with the adjoining snooker room, as offices to run varying businesses from (subject to the necessary consent although the current vendors used this space as offices for over 30 years).
For snooker fanatics, the snooker room is triple aspect with double doors to the garden. The full-sized snooker table is mounted on a hydraulic lift and can be lowered away under the floor enabling the room to be used for entertaining if desired. The basement houses the table when away. It also has three store rooms.
On the first floor there is a one bedroom self-contained apartment which has a fitted kitchen. The sitting/dining room overlooks the pool area and rear garden. The apartment has a separate council tax band of A.
Kingthorn Mill has wonderful grounds and is set in around 10.5 acres of gardens and paddocks. There is garaging for four cars, stables, a tennis court and swimming pool and extensive outbuildings for storage or business use (subject to the necessary consent).
There are two entrances into the property, the main walled and electrically operated double gates leading into the private driveway. This continues onto a large parking and turning area to the front of the main house and onto the garages, cottage and barn beyond. The second gated access takes you crossing over a bridge which is suitable for HGV’s and onto the large parking and turning area at the front of the barn - perfect for business use, equestrian use etc as it does not interfere with the privacy of the main house. Here there is access to the stables and out into the adjoining side paddock area.
The gardens and grounds have wonderful mature trees and shrub beds. A small and pretty river passes through the land. Views across the two paddocks/pastureland and the Northamptonshire countryside are abundant.
To the front there is a fenced Tennis Court.
To the rear there is a garden area with Outdoor Swimming Pool (in need of some refurbishment) with an adjacent Pool Room with WC.
There is an excellent large modern agricultural building which is powered with 3 Phase electricity. The building is extensive at c. 77’10 x 56’8 (about 23.5m x 17.2m) (max) (int.) with an adjoining open fronted lean-to c. 56’8 x 35’9 (about 17.2m x 11m).
Situated away from the main house, the building can be reached via the secondary drive, with ample parking and a large turning area to the front.
The Barn offers great opportunity for varying ventures. Previously the vendors ran their own agricultural business from here, and in the past, they have bred horses on the property and also kept a small suckler herd. It could make an excellent equestrian space.
