The historic village of Harringworth in the County of Northamptonshire is also close to the Rutland border, lies approximately 10 miles from Stamford, 3 miles from Uppingham and 5.6 miles from Corby providing rail links to London St Pancras.
Cross Farm House is an historic Grade II Listed former farm house of 16th Century origins, situated in a conservation area, located in a prominent position central to this popular East Northants Village in the District of Northamptonshire adjacent to the border of Rutland. As the name suggests the property is positioned opposite a Grade 1 Listed Market Cross which is often featured along with the famous Harringworth viaduct on photographs about the village and the area as a whole. The current owners have undertaken an extensive refurbishment and modernisation programme in recent years with great care to respect the authenticity and the character of the original 16th Century property with its mullion windows, fireplaces and beams, including a stepped chamfered beam. They have cleverly blended the character and history of the original property and barn into a beautifully presented family home which has a modern feel, coupled with comfortable and spacious reception rooms which give flexibility to family living. The large open kitchen/dining/ living room is lovely and light having large bi-fold doors as well as full height vaulted ceiling to the dining and sitting area.
