Lot One - The Priory
The Priory is approached over a long private drive in the control of the property and is built of ironstone and limestone under a clay tiled roof. Whilst in the current ownership the property has been returned to a country residence.
The front door opens into a magnificent reception hall ideally suited for large scale entertaining, with Tudor rood screen dividing it from the dining room. The drawing room enjoys a southwest facing aspect and additional reception rooms on the ground floor include an impressive vaulted billiards room, sitting room and study. The inner hall offers access to the recently fitted bespoke kitchen and large rear hall.
An impressive oak staircase gently rises to the first floor landing which allows access to the five main bedrooms and an inner landing and rear staircase provides a link to four further bedrooms, served by a sitting room and family bathroom. Lying on the second floor are two further double bedrooms, shower room and original school classroom.
The Old Dairy
Lying behind The Priory is The Old Dairy, which has in the past been used as a cottage and is currently in need of renovation and refurbishment. Once completed it will provide perfect accommodation for dependent relative, member of staff or ideal home office facility.
Garden & Grounds
The Priory is approached over a tarmacadam drive, from the public highway, passing between open fields then into the gardens and grounds. The garden of The Priory lies mainly to the south and west of the house with extensive lawns, a woodland border with many mature specimen trees and a natural pond.
The drive continues past The Old Dairy allowing access to a timber building providing a large single garage and two bay car port, along with portal framed farm building. Lying to the north, south and west of the formal gardens are the pasture fields which are currently divided into four paddocks and extent to approximately 20.85 acres.
Lot Two - The Stables
Lying to the north of The Priory and benefitting from its own drive is the former stable block, which has been part converted into residential accommodation from its former office use. The Stables is predominately single storey and the floor plan included within the particulars provides an indicative layout.
The Stables enjoys an abundance of parking to the front and has a delightful private walled garden to the rear. Block paved terraces give way to areas of lawn and within the garden is a brick built barbecue and an above ground swimming pool.
Cosgrove lies on the borders of Northamptonshire and Buckinghamshire and is very well placed for access to Milton Keynes with its excellent leisure and shopping facilities as well as its train station on the West Coast Mainline with regular trains to London Euston within 30 minutes the north west and Scotland.
