The property is named after the Battle of Bunker Hill, the first major engagement of the American Revolutionary War fought in Charleston part of modern day Boston, Massachusetts. The home is now on the market for £2,500,000.

This outstanding detached late 18th Century period stone house stands in a delightful rural setting part of a small community of dwellings surround by open countryside between the villages of Boughton & Pitsford north of Northampton. The house provides five bedroomed accommodation with master suite, four reception rooms, a superb Harvey Jones kitchen/breakfast room, cellars, laundry and boot room.

The very spacious L-shaped drawing room is beneath an Oak beamed ceiling with exposed floorboards, open hearth fireplace with cast iron log burner and stone mantle. Including a study area with fitted cupboards and bay window to the western elevation overlooking an ornamental pond and fountain.

The south facing lawned gardens include a former orchard and extend to approximately 2 acres together with fenced paddocks and Menage, the whole extending to in excess of 11 acres.

The lawned gardens are approached by a paved terrace which leads on to an extensive area of lawn with well stocked flower borders, mature shrubs and established trees. The south elevation of the house boasts a mature Wisteria creeper and steps lead down from the lawn to a lower level lawn also bounded by established trees and shrubs. Beyond this there is a grassed area around an ornamental Lily pond and beyond this the lawns stretch away to the south where there is an old apple orchard.

The paddocks stand mostly to the west of the house with sectional fencing of post and wire and post and rail. Towards the northern boundary there is an outdoor Menage and the paddocks stand adjacent to a combination of pasture and arable land.
