Home for high flyers in Northamptonshire with private airstrip and hangar

Published June 23rd, 2015

Home buyers looking to live the high life in the countryside should take a peek at Buttermilk Hall Farm, a unique rural property just launched on the market in Northamptonshire by Berrys.

The detached farmhouse, range of traditional farm buildings and 22 acres at Blisworth comes complete with its own 600-metre airstrip and hangar.

The property is for sale through the Towcester office of Berrys with a guide price of £1,350,000.

Marcus Blake, associate of Berrys says he has never sold anything quite like it before.

“Buttermilk Hall Farm certainly is an unusual property and is likely to create a great deal of interest,” said Marcus.

“At the moment the grass airstrip is used by the owners plus other local aircraft owners and there is a hangar for three to four aircraft.

“Imagine being to fly in and out of your home whenever you like –  it could be a dream property for someone wanting to live the high life,” he said.

The large, four-bedroom, detached farmhouse originally formed part of the Duke of Graftons’s Estate. Constructed mainly of stone it has been sympathetically extended and modernised and comes with a large garden.

The adjoining stone farm buildings have part consent for conversion to offices and a single bedroom annexe.


Further outbuildings are suitable for a wide range of hobby uses and there may also be scope for further development of the buildings, subject to planning consents.

The property is ring fenced in a total of 22 acres and is situated in open countryside between Blisworth and Stoke Bruerne with excellent links to the wider area with the nearby A43 that runs between the M1 and M40 motorways. The world famous Silverstone racetrack is only six miles away.

“It is extremely rare that a residential property combines secluded rural setting, barns with planning consent for conversion, further outbuilding for hobby use plus have its own grass air strip and hangar,” Marcus added.

Buttermilk Hall Farm is offered for sale with 13 acres with a guide price of £1.2 million or with an additional nine acres of land with a total guide price of £1.35 million.
