The Rectory is a striking and versatile property on the edge of the village with two annex's, offices, swimming pool and garages for 12 cars, along with 24 acres of gardens and paddocks
Arthingworth village is situated on the Northamptonshire/ Leicestershire border, six miles south of the market town of Market Harborough, with its great range of amenities and its mainline rail services to London St Pancras (from 55 mins).
The village itself sits amidst attractive rolling countryside with public footpaths and lanes offering lovely walks and cycle rides.
It has a public house and parish church and is also well placed for renowned preparatory, public and state schools; Maidwell and Spratton Hall, Northampton High and Uppingham Schools, among others, are all within an 18 mile radius.
Dating from around 1915, the property has been in private ownership since the 1980s and has combined the seller's home and business base. Unlisted, it was significantly extended in around 2001 and offers circa 10,000 square feet of accommodation, based upon the floor plan.
Accessed from the village through double gates, opposite St Andrew's Church, the property is entered into an impressive, vaulted and marble floored entrance stairwell hallway, which sets the scene for the rest of the home. The property offers extensive reception and entertaining space through its ground and lower ground floor layout with a great flow, which includes five reception rooms and fabulous family kitchen, with excellent connectivity to the south facing garden and swimming pool.
At first and second floor level there are five bedrooms, served by four well-appointed bath and shower rooms, with two additional self-contained annex flats, one within the Rectory and the other over the four-car garage wing.
Further, to the west of the Rectory, a two-storey circa 4,000 square foot detached stone building, accessed along a secondary driveway, offers a further three garages and extensive offices, from which a business HQ was run.
The gardens, grounds and land lie to the south and east of the principal house, from which there are splendid views, and extend to 24 acres, or thereabouts. They include paddocks, ponds and an outdoor swimming pool. A vision, at one time, for the creation of a village cricket ground, led to the gated entrance on the southern boundary. A large detached brick agricultural building, constructed in 2019 (nma/2019/0018) is positioned to the south east of the Rectory and its gardens,
