Property description

A Grade II listed 17th century stone under thatch three bedroom detached cottage with a separate detached one bedroom cottage in an elevated position with views across the conservation area and open countryside.

The Round House overlooks the Tove Valley and has an entrance hall, sitting room, dining room, snug, kitchen/breakfast room, and shower room on the ground floor and three double bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor. The cottage has recently been rethatched. The stone under slate annexe is detached from the main cottage and is located just across a paved patio in the garden. It is fully self-contained with its own kitchen and shower room. The plot extends to approximately 0.3 acres and has off street parking for four cars. There is planning consent to extend and replace the lean to boiler house and extend the annexe to create a garage (planning ref: S/2020/0724 FUL).

The Round House

The property has features including open fireplaces in the sitting room and snug which were used by the previous owners, quarry tiled floors, and exposed beams, rafters and purlins. The kitchen has an electric range cooker, double Butler sink, space and plumbing for a washing machine and an undercounter fridge, as well as a separate pantry cupboard with power for an additional appliance.

Self-Contained Annexe

The self-contained annexe has an entrance hall with storage, a sitting room, and a double bedroom with built-in wardrobes. The kitchen/breakfast room has French doors to the garden and a door to the driveway. The three piece shower room includes a double shower cubicle. The enclosed garden to the rear is separate from the main garden but there is access linking the two.


Alderton is a conservation village with many similar style properties focused around a central paddock with its estate railing. Access at the front of the cottage leads to the driveway which provides parking for four cars. There are separate enclosed gardens for each cottage which are mainly lawned with established trees and shrubs, decked and paved seating areas, and a shed.


The local schools are Paulerspury Church of England School, Yardley Gobion Church of England School, Northampton High School in Hardingstone, Northampton School for Boys and Stowe School.
