Harringworth is a small village in north east Northamptonshire, three miles from Uppingham, 10 miles from Oakham and 11 miles from Stamford. It lies in the valley of the River Welland close to the border with Rutland and is overlooked by the Harringworth Railway Viaduct.
This pretty village provides a strong local community with excellent amenities including the recently reopened public house, horse riding & livery stables, Oh Curio homeware store, Spokes Cafe, Village Hall, and local clubs & classes, etc.
The village is within easy reach of the lovely market towns of Oakham and Uppingham to the north and Market Harborough to the west, all providing a range of boutique shops, cafes, bars and restaurants, with various farmers and international markets held throughout the month. More extensive and mainstream amenities can be found in Corby to the east, including an international swimming pool, theatre, pedestrian shopping centre and supermarkets.
Recreational facilities in the area are excellent and as well as all country pursuits that can be enjoyed in the surrounding countryside, Rutland Water is close by for water sports enthusiasts. Rockingham castle, East Carlton Country Park and Prior Hall golf course are all easily accessible.
The area is home to many public schools including Oakham, Oundle, Uppingham and Stamford and there is a good range of well-regarded state schools including Gretton Primary in the next village, and Uppingham Community College.
Harringworth benefits from good road access to the A1 A43, A14 and A47 and the East Coast Mainline train services to London St Pancras runs from Corby, Market Harborough and Kettering in approx. 1 hour.
This lovely stone property works very well for modern living whilst still has an abundance of original features, such as the impressive stone inglenook fire place with mantel beam, some stone mullioned windows, exposed beams, and lovely parkay flooring.
From the garden path the front door leads into an entrance lobby with little leaded side windows, on to an inner hall off which is the wonderfully light family room, double doors open to the charming sitting room with the inglenook fireplace, and on to the stylishly refitted dining kitchen with granite work surfacing, range cooker, fridge freezer. Beyond the kitchen a rear hall opens to the garden, and to a cloakroom, useful utility & boot rooms, making this house really work for a family.
Because this property was originally thatched there is now a really good ceiling height on the first floor. The landing has two useful store cupboards, leads to three double bedrooms, one with space to potentially create an ensuite, and the family bathroom which has held a bath in the past but currently has a large walk in shower which has been made a striking feature with the use of stone and hand made bricks.
BARN AND GARDENS
The current vendors have totally reconfigured the driveway, garden, and built the amazing garaging barn. This building is constructed of oak and stone retrieved from on site. On the ground floor is open fronted parking for two cars, two lockable storerooms, and a studio/double bedroom 4 with ensuite cloakroom. On the first floor is a large room, currently used as a games room, but with a multitude of possibilities.
The gravelled driveway gives ample room for turning and parking a number of cars. The gardens are set back from the village street behind a beautiful stone wall, mature shrubs, and wooden gates.
The gardens are a mixture of lawns, lovely stone beds, raised beds, and a pagoda covered with honey suckle and clematis, whilst winter jasmine and roses surround the front door of the property. Bliss!
All main services are connected.
Gas fired central heating in the house.
Electric heating in the barn.
