Business potential at quiet family home

Few properties offer as much potential as Irthlingborough’s Fitzwilliam House, with its range of outbuildings and units providing a host of business opportunities.

The property, at Station Road, Irthlingborough, Northamptonshire, is to be sold by conditional online auction by SDL Auctions on behalf of Woodhead & Co.

As well as the main three-bedroomed detached house, there is a large warehouse, plus a 40’8″ x 19’6″ workshop/garage with an office above with its own kitchen area and toilet.

Fitzwilliam House itself provides versatile living accommodation, too. The standout feature is the spacious kitchen diner, with cream fitted units, breakfast bar and island.

Off the kitchen is a sitting room with a conservatory overlooking the rear garden and peaceful open countryside, including Stanwick Lakes and the River Nene.

On the opposite side of the property, beyond the dining area is a further reception room which in turn leads to an office and a second conservatory. As this section of the property also features a shower room and a utility room, it could provide the potential to create a self-contained annex as a studio flat for an elderly relative or to provide some independence for a teenager.

Upstairs there are three bedrooms – the master has its own dressing room – and a family bathroom.

The house has uPVC double glazing throughout, central heating on the ground floor and storage heaters on the first floor.

Jason Lee, national sales manager at SDL Auctions, said: “This is a fascinating property with lots of potential for the enterprising investor. Its versatile outbuildings have been used for a variety of businesses and the fact that there is spacious family accommodation on site makes it all the more attractive.”

Fitzwilliam House is situated on the edge of Irthlingborough, off the A6 and not far from the A45, just 25 minutes from the centre of Northampton.

It is offered for sale by conditional online auction, with a starting bid of £465,000, ending at noon on Friday 25 January. Properties can be listed for sale via online auction at any time.
