Manfield House was constructed between 1899 and 1902 by Charles Dorman for James Manfield - a Northamptonshire shoe manufacturer
Tucked within a Northampton cul-de-sac, this three-bedroom apartment has recently been reduced in price to £379,500 for the leasehold.
Manfield House in Woolston Close, Spinney Hill, was constructed between 1899 and 1902 by Charles Dorman for James Manfield - a Northamptonshire shoe manufacturer - and subsequently the property became a hospital around 1923.
The house is dressed in ironstone with Rutland stone dressings under a stone tiled roof with moulded cornerstones to shape the gables.
The property was converted into a select number of high quality apartments some years ago with number 3 being a duplex apartment and one of the largest extending to an impressive 2,450 sq feet occupying the ground floor.
The property includes a drawing room with large inglenook style fireplace and a large square bay window including stained glass of the Jacobean style overlooking the gardens.
The kitchen/dining room has a contemporary modern L shape kitchen with a range of fitted appliances with French doors leading onto the sun terrace having views over the gardens.
There is a utility/cloakroom and a further sitting room which could be used as a third bedroom or office having beautiful panelling throughout and original fireplace.
On the first floor there are two bedrooms, both of which have built in wardrobes and spacious bathroom with a four piece suite.
Outside the communal gardens are a particular feature extending to approximately 19 acres in total and maintained by a company to a high standard. There are established trees and a large lawn and a private patio at the rear of the property. The apartment also benefits from two reserved car parking spaces at the front of the property.
