Property Flirt! What’s the damage?

If you're dreaming of a house move and fancy putting your stamp on a character property then have a nose around this big old five bed family home for sale in Braybrooke village.

Itching to expand? Hankering after a period property? Reckon you could get your teeth stuck into a project? Have a peep through the keyhole at Appin House in Braybrooke, a period house with bags of potential. Then see if you can guess the asking price and start packing for your big move.

So what are we talking? Well, you’ll get five bedrooms and two bathrooms in this decent sized detached house in the very pretty, rural village of Braybrooke. It’s 13 miles to Kettering in one direction and 10 miles to Market Harborough in the other, which means that, even though you get the open space and views that come with rural living, you’re also rather spoilt for choice when it comes to gorgeous independent shops and other amenties. We love Ironstone Wellbeing Centre in Kettering for yoga, The Bean Hive for cool homewares and Toybox Kettering for everything to keep tots entertained. The train to St. Pancras from Kettering takes around 50 minutes. Handy for the Eurostar.

There are exposed oak beams and, what’s this? A huge inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove in the living/dining room (there’s another separate dining room too, of course). Appin House has bags of the kind of quirky character you’d expect from an older building, so there are various staircases and the angles are definitely not all dead straight but that’s the joy of period properties.

The farmhouse kitchen might be a wee bit retro (hey, I did say it had potential) but it adjoins a separate utility and, possibly the pièce de résistance, a walk-in pantry. Living the dream.

Upstairs are five bedrooms but I’ve got a hankering to make bedroom four, the smallest, into a walk-in wardrobe, my current obsession, though it would also make a gorgeous nursery.

There are substantial brick outbuildings too, with scope to convert into an annexe, studio space, home office or gym, as well as a garden extending to around 0.9 acres. There’s plenty of space and shed loads of potential, so what do we reckon the price tag is for a house like this?
