About this property

DESCRIPTION Connaught House dates to the 18th century, being listed grade II as a property of architectural and historic interest and has been sympathetically restored, maintained, and extended over the years.

Constructed of traditional brick under a pitched main roof, the house sits in a lovely spot in the centre of the village of Hempnall and enjoys well-arranged accommodation across four delightful floors, with many period features in place such as exposed beams, stripped and sanded wooden floorboards, sash windows, coving, and delightful fireplaces, all in good order.

The whole has been a much-loved family home since 2009 and represents a wonderful opportunity for a wide range of buyers looking to acquire a home with history and character. The current owners improved the accommodation throughout when they first acquired Connaught House, but the whole would now benefit from further improvements.

The house is approached at the front via a wrought iron gate leading up to the front door. You are welcomed into a pleasant entrance hall providing access to the kitchen breakfast room with underfloor heating, aga and a good range of wall and base units. Wooden French doors lead out to the gardens from the kitchen and act is a super feature to the house. The principal drawing room/living room is a charming space being the main focal point of Connaught House with a distinctive inglenook fireplace with log burner, two large sash windows offer excellent natural light. In addition, a study, cloakroom, and ground floor bedroom complete the ground floor accommodation.

The bedroom accommodation is arranged across the first, second and third floors featuring five bedrooms in total with two-bathroom suites, both with roll top baths.

On the fourth floor within the attic space lies a fitted kitchen and two further bedrooms. There is potential here to convert this space to a separate annexe where any buyer could derive an income subject to the necessary planning consent being forthcoming.

The gardens act as a significant feature to Connaught House being fully enclosed offering complete privacy from neighboring properties. The gardens are partly walled and benefit from a large terrace off the kitchen breakfast room. The remaining gardens are lawned with mature hedging and borders. A garden shed will remain with the property.
