East Had­don, £875,000

Four-bed­room The Old Farm­house, lo­cated be­tween the pop­u­lar vil­lages of East Had­don and Church Bramp­ton, makes an ideal fam­ily base. All four re­cep­tion rooms of­fer views of the rolling coun­try­side, the former dairy has been con­verted to an open-plan fam­ily/ play room in­cor­po­rat­ing the large din­ing room and the vast, triple-as­pect kitchen has am­ple space for a break­fast ta­ble. The house comes with an acre of land, is just eight miles from Northamp­ton and the pri­mary school at East Had­don is out­stand­ing. Carter Jonas (01604 321343)

Syre­sham, £1.5 mil­lion

Just four miles from Brack­ley, seven-bed­room The Gate House was built in the Arts-and-crafts style in the early 1920s. The main prop­erty has very ver­sa­tile ac­com­mo­da­tion, which can be con­fig­ured in a num­ber of ways, and in­cludes two self-con­tained flats (plus fur­ther ac­com­mo­da­tion in The East Lodge). The grounds in­clude a pretty walled gar­den plus a kitchen gar­den and the lo­ca­tion of­fers good con­nec­tions to both the M40 and M1. Sav­ills (01295 228000)

Brad­den, £1.6 mil­lion

A sub­stan­tial Vic­to­rian seven-bed­room house, Brad­den Lodge is just four miles west of Towces­ter. Orig­i­nally dat­ing back to the 17th cen­tury, the prop­erty fea­tures lots of pe­riod in­ter­est and the am­ple ac­com­mo­da­tion is in good re­pair; the break­fast kitchen and the con­ser­va­tory are both new ad­di­tions. With a peace­ful edge-of-vil­lage set­ting, the grounds fea­ture a pretty walled gar­den and a swim­ming pool. Jack­son Stops & Staff (01604 632991)

Blakesley, £1 mil­lion

Charm­ing Grade Ii-listed, 17th-cen­tury Bar­ton House has an im­pres­sive seven bed­rooms and six re­cep­tion rooms, plus lots of pe­riod fea­tures, in­clud­ing a cel­lar. The lo­ca­tion couldn’t be bet­ter: the lo­cal pri­mary is ex­cel­lent and the house lies within the catch­ment for the out­stand­ing Sponne School. It’s 10 miles from Northamp­ton, where trains go to Lon­don Eus­ton in un­der an hour. Michael Gra­ham (01327 350022)

Dean­shanger, £1.8 mil­lion

Set back from the road, along a tree-lined drive, 18th-cen­tury Dag­nall Farm lies on the edge of the his­toric vil­lage of Dean­shanger. The spa­cious ac­com­mo­da­tion, with seven bed­rooms, is crammed with pe­riod charm, from French win­dows to large, roar­ing fire­places and wood burn­ers in smaller rooms, as well as ex­posed beams and vaulted ceil­ings. Out­side is an or­chard, a paddock, sta­bles, out­build­ings and a ten­nis court. The prop­erty is lo­cated just eight miles from Mil­ton Keynes, which has a fast ser­vice to Eus­ton in 35 min­utes.
