Development info

Located in Kingsthorpe, a suburb of Northampton, our Scholars Green development offers a wide choice of two, three, four and five-bedroom homes and is ideal for families, professionals, and first-time buyers alike.

It's easy to get out into the countryside from Kingsthorpe, which is less than 3 miles north of Northampton town centre, so you'll have the best of both worlds. There are a series of lakes along the River Nene to the south of Northampton and the Upton Country Park is one of several lovely green spaces that all the family can enjoy. One of the nearest is the peaceful Pitsford Water Nature Reserve, which is a haven for wildlife and birdwatching. It's also a much-loved place to go for walking, cycling, fishing, and sailing, just 6 miles away from Scholars Green on the A508. It's sure to become a favourite destination at the weekend.

Leisure

Northampton town centre, approximately 2.5 miles away, has a range of boutique shops, along with some well-known high street stores. Leisure and entertainment is well-served in the town in the Derngate area, with theatre, music venues, clubs, bars, and caf├ęs where you can sit and watch the world go by. Northampton also has both professional rugby and football teams for you to watch, as well as motor racing at Silverstone. If you enjoy getting out and about there's plenty to do in the local area. Golfers can enjoy Kingsthorpe Golf Club with its pristine 73 acre course, and in Northampton there are numerous leisure centres and gyms, including Virgin Active, Nuffield Health and Fitness4Less.
