A substantial Grade II Listed period village house built of local stone with more recent additions. Built between 1700 and 1750 the Old Lacehouse would have been one of the so called 'Lace schools' which were crucial to the lacemaking industry in Northamptonshire between the 17th and 19th centuries. The large, well-lit room on the first floor which would have accommodated the bobbin lace makers and their pillows is now a spacious sitting room. The property has many additional character features including oak and tiled flooring, exposed stonework and timbers, brace & ledge doors, window seats and attractive working fireplaces. The accommodation includes a dining room full of character, kitchen/breakfast room comprises a range of base and wall units with a solid oak work surface, ceramic sink and overlooks the garden. A breakfast bar separates the kitchen from the breakfast room, which has French doors opening on to the cottage garden.
On the first floor in addition to the sitting room, there is a guest bedroom and family bathroom. The remaining three bedrooms occupy the top floor with the main feature being a superb master bedroom with vaulted ceiling and exposed 'A' frame timbers.
