An individually designed and built 4 bedroom detached family house in a sought after area of Little Billing which is towards the east of Northampton and convenient for Riverside Retail Park, Weston Favell shopping and the A45.

The property has 16 micro-generating solar panels (owned not leased), UPVC double-glazing and gas radiator central heating.
