Castle Lane, Wellingborough


An individual 1930s Art Deco 4 bedroom detached character house enjoying a convenient location within walking distance of the theatre, town centre and railway station (London St Pancras in around 55 minutes from Wellingborough railway station). The property is also within a few minutes walk of Wellingborough School, Wrenn Secondary and All Saints Church of England Primary School.

The property has a fully enclosed garden that affords good levels of privacy and also has a double width driveway, detached double garage and further modern timber garage/workshop. The property also has solar panels and a small wind turbine which both micro-generate electricity (this equipment is owned and not leased).

The property in its present style is understood to have been converted from a former shoe factory in the 1930s to create an Art Deco family house for a local family. The house retains a number of period architectural features typical of homes of the style and these include fireplaces, oak flooring and period Critall style bay windows etc.

The ground floor accommodation includes an entrance hall, sitting room with Art Deco fireplace, separate dining room, study, fitted kitchen, utility room and cloakroom/WC. The first floor has a landing, 4 good bedrooms (two with en suites) and family shower room.

This is a very unusual property and to our knowledge is one of only a few or possibly even the only period Art Deco house within Wellingborough. Viewing is recommended.
