A rare opportunity to purchase a period farmhouse with separate barn, set in 1.3 acres in rural Northamptonshire countryside. Mill House and The Stables are believed to date back to the early 1800s. Steeped in history and once home to the East Haddon windmill. The former farmhouse is a detached five bedroom home with superb views and landscaped south and west facing gardens. The full accommodation comprises entrance hall, cloakroom, triple aspect sitting room with open fireplace, dining room with bi-fold doors to the stunning oak framed sunroom which overlooks the grounds. There is an additional study, family room with log burner and 23'7 kitchen/breakfast room with adjoining utility and lower cellar. To the first floor are four double bedrooms and a single bedroom, with bedrooms one and four enjoying en-suite facilities, and a family bathroom. Outside, the detached red brick stable conversion is located to the rear of Mill House. This multiple use building is only limited by the imagination. Formerly rented as a commercial office, the property lends itself to ideal premises for a workshop, studio or office. It has residential planning permission to be converted into a detached annexe or even a separate dwelling (subject to boundary conditions). The gardens include a kitchen garden and wrap around the two properties, all enclosed by gated entrances. There is scope to significantly reduce the garden maintenance work. There is access to the front and rear via paved and gravel driveways, with a detached double garage and workshop. Mill House EPC: C. The Stables EPC: C
